Quick Mill Vetrano Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine
The redesigned Quick Mill Vetrano takes the formidable feature set of the Quick Mill Andreja Premium to the next level. By upgrading the vibratory pump to a commercial rotary pump and adding an optional drain hook-up to the drip tray, the Quick Mill Vetrano has the option of being used in a low-volume commercial setting. In the newly redesigned model, the Vetrano ditches its old, square look and takes the form of the Andreja Premium with its more aesthetically pleasing curved side panels. Alongside the redesigned casing, the newest version adds the following new features: commercial Sirai pressure stat, four hole steam tip, drip tray handle, polished aluminum adjustable feet, custom made steam and hot water knobs, three position power switch, and option to upgrade to multi-directional joystick steam and hot water assemblies.

- Before turning the steam nozzle, point the end of the steam wand into an empty container or point it towards the drip tray. This is to get rid of any water that might first come out when you turn on the steam wand.
- When dry steaming begins exiting the steam wand, you can turn it off. You are now ready to start steaming your milk.
- Do not fill your milk pitcher more than halfway full with cold milk
- Make sure the tip of the steam wand is fully submerged before you turn on the steam.
- After you begin steaming, you can raise the steam wand so that the tip is barely submerged. If the tip is submerged too much the milk will begin to squeal meaning it needs more aeration. If you bring the tip too far out you will hear a heavy chirping or sucking sound. This will result in big bubbles and a possible mess.
- You should aim for slight chirping up until the milk reaches room temperature. At that point you can submerge the tip of the wand to one side of the pitcher to create a swirling motion. Continue this until the steaming pitcher becomes too hot to the touch or a couple seconds after you have to take your hand off of the bottom or side (this should be around 140°).
- Two complete 58 mm portafilters (one single and one double).
- Stainless Steel blank disk for backflushing
- Stainless Steel braided water line.
- We recommend purchasing a 58 mm Prima Coffee Tamper from the drop down menu above

- A sturdy machine that will take up quite a bit of space on your cabinet. (11.25" W x 17.5" D x 16.25" H)
- Although the E-61 and thermo siphon circulation help keep temperatures stable, there is no P.I.D. for digital temperature control.
- Plain water backflushing should be done at least once a week. To backflush, use the portafilter's backflush disc. Take out your single or double basket and securely place the blank insert into the portafilter. To perform a plain water backflush, place the portafilter into the group head. Then raise the brew lever all the way up for 15 seconds, and then lower it. Water will forcefully discharge out of the bottom of the group into the drip tray; this is normal. Repeat three to five times.
- Backflush with detergent like Cafiza (see options above) once every fifty extractions.
- Direct water connection requirement: connection must be made to a cold water supply line only.
- Warranty: ***Purchases made between October 11th, 2011 and December 31st, 2011 receive an additional year of warranty coverage, making it Two Years of parts and labor provided by US distributor.***

$81.98It can be difficult in the world of specialty coffee to find a brewer that not only looks fantastic but also produces a fantastic product. Eva Solo has done an exceptional job of combining both elements into the Cafe Solo. The Solo seems a little strange upon first glance for the very reason that it may be the first coffee brewer of its kind: one that is clothed. The designers at Eva Solo had the ingenious idea of using the same material that keeps divers warm (neoprene) and wrapping it around the glass carafe... thus keeping the coffee hot during the 4 minute brewing period.
Not only are its looks something to take seriously, but the Solo's coffee is not to be underestimated. Because of its use of "total immersion" brewing (similar to that of a french press), the grounds are evenly and completely submersed in water. This provides extraction that is difficult to achieve by other methods of brewing. It is advisable, however, that once the 4 minutes of extraction is complete, the coffee should be immediately served or transferred into a thermal pot (we recommend one of the Zojirushi carafes). This will prevent over-extraction from taking place which results in a bitter tasting coffee.
The Cafe Solo is unquestionably a unique and exceptional specialty coffee manual brewer. Because of its simple usability and superior design, the Cafe Solo is a force to be reckoned with in the specialty coffee world.
