What you need to know about the Andreja Premium Evo by Quick Mill
Named after a Brazilian model, Andreja, who worked the Quick Mill booth many years ago, the Quick Mill Andreja Premium Evo certainly lives up to the classic beauty it represents. The iconic commercial E61 group with automatic preinfusion jumps off of the brilliantly polished #304 food-grade stainless steel shell and frame. It’s beautiful curves of stainless steel exhibit Quick Mill’s history as a stainless steel fabricator with immense intricacy while accented deep blue manometers display brew and boiler pressure. LED indicator lights to the top left near your three-position switch and by the hot water wand also monitor machine operations convenient during the brew cycle and while interfacing with technical support.
The Quick Mill Andreja Premium Evo is especially well suited to those who are strapped for space. Ringing in at less than 50lbs it’s incredibly easy to move around. Height is generally a concern for home espresso machine purchasers, and the Andreja Premium Evo is only 16 inches high leaving plenty of room for filling your water reservoir even while under your upper cabinets. This size, however, does not affect the amount of cup clearance available. Most standard coffee cups in your home will fit directly under the group with a five-inch cup clearance from the drip tray to the bottom of the E61 group.
Setting Up the Andreja Premium Evo
After removing the Andreja Premium Evo from the box, since we’ve already done a lot of the work for you during our bench testing prior to the shipment of your espresso machine, all you have to do is plug your Quick Mill into a regular 15-amp kitchen outlet and make sure the three-position switch is in the 0 or center position (off).
After plugging in your Andreja Premium Evo fill the three-liter BPA free water reservoir with soft, well-filtered water, and you’re ready to start filling your boilers. The new style reservoir is bottom-fed without silicone tubes which reduces cavitation and allows for easier filling. Switch the three-position switch to the left, position one, to activate the pump. Your Quick Mill Andreja Premium Evo is equipped with a brass ended 52-watt Ulka pump, which is more durable than pumps that have plastic ends and commonly break over time causing leaks. The higher wattage pump doesn’t have to work as hard and produces far less noise with the pulsar installed, which also reduces pressure fluctuations.
After the large nearly two-liter T.E.A. coated boiler has been filled and water is exiting the E61 group - turn the three-position switch to the far right (position III) to engage the powerful 1400 watt heating element and start heating your boiler. With the 1400 watt heating element, even after making multiple espresso drinks one after another, your machine will recover very quickly.
Making Your First Drink On the Andreja Premium Evo
Now that your Quick Mill Andreja Premium Evo is up to temperature, you’re ready to start making your first drink! The Quick Mill Andreja Premium Evo is extremely well suited to the milk-based beverage lover’s use and has been one of our favorite heat exchangers since we started exclusively importing the Andreja many years ago. Its ability as a heat exchanger to simultaneously brew and steam milk reduces the time it takes to produce a quality drink but also makes it that much easier for the home barista’s workflow.
What makes the Andreja Premium Evo last so long?
Sirai Pressure Stat: more durable and turns off the heating elements when at pressure.
Easy access vacuum breaker valve: easily adjust brew pressure and prevent vapor lock problems commonly seen when a machine is put on a timer. Vapor locks can become a problem when the machine is on a timer if there is no vacuum breaker installed.
Klixon thermal fuse: attached to the 52-watt Ulka vibratory pump which further protects the pump by shutting it off in the event that it runs too long and overheats.
Resettable hi-limit: prevents the boiler from over-heating. If overheating does occur you can just reset it instead of having to completely replace it.
Boiler drains on the bottom of the boiler and a larger access port size for easily draining your boilers for both transport, prolonged downtime (vacation), and service prior to transport.
