Izzo Alex Duetto 3 Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine
One of the most popular machines we've offered, the Alex Duetto 2, just got better. We're happy to now be able to offer the latest upgrade to Izzo's Alex Duetto, the Alex Duetto 3. The Alex Duetto 3 takes everything we love abou the Duetto 2 and makes it even better. Just like its predecessor, the Duetto 3 is an E61 espresso machine that combines PID(digitally controlled temperature stability), dual boilers, and the ability to plumb in or use the water reservoir with the already steller reputation of the legendary group head. While we have an extended list of the upgrades below, a few of our favorites our: new curved body styling replacing outer shell, ergonomic portafilters, standard cup rails, and reinforced front panel to reduce flexing when locking in the portafilter.

New in the Duetto 3:
- Rounded edge to the top outer shell.
- Improved top ventilation for better cup warming.
- Hand rails come standard.
- New, angled, ergonomic portafilter handle.
- Reinforced front panel to reduce flexing when locking in portafilter.
- Heater lights are smaller and flush-mounted.
- Large redesigned drip tray now holds 32 ounces of water.
- Expansion valve drips through tube built into the face plate on the machine rather than the tubing that stuck out on the Duetto II.
- Easy access expansion valve.
- Drain assist between pump and motor.
- E61 Lever Action Grouphead: A commercial quality grouphead that helps greater ensure temperature stability.
- Dual Boilers: 1.8 Liter insulated copper steam boiler and .8 Liter group boiler.
- Tank or Plumbed: Rotary pump and 2.4 Liter water tank with lever control to switch between direct-plumbed and reservoir which can be accessed by removing the cup tray on top.
- All-Stainless Construction: Including double-walled outer frame, now with no gap around top rim.
- No-Burn Wands: No-burn steam and hot water wands.
- Two pressure gauges, one for steam and one for the group
- Two red lights to indicate power to group or steam boilers
- 1200 Watt heater for Steam Boiler and 800 Watt heater for Group Boiler
- New polished metal feet
- Low Water Sensor
- Vacuum Breaker Valve that diverts steam back to water tank
- Over Pressure Valve sends water back to drip try if the pump pressure gets to high
- 15 or 20 Amp operation (Standard is 20, while 15 can be programmed through PID and requires convertor cord listed in options when adding to cart)
- Digitally controls the temperature in both the Group Boiler as well as the Steam Boiler
- Can change the machines operation mode between 15 and 20 amps
- Can switch temperature display between Celcius and Fahrenheit
- Can program the offset to ensure that the temperature selected is the temperature of the water exiting the group
- Either boiler can be turned off (there is also a dedicate switch for the Steam Boiler on the side of the machine)
- 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 ergonomic 58 mm portafilters (one single and one double).
- Stainless Steel blank disk for backflushing
- A cheap tamper (We recommend purchasing a 58 mm Prima Coffee Tamper from the drop down menu above)
- 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 Full Circle Espresso Machine Cleaner (see options above) once every fifty extractions.
- Direct water connection requirement: connection must be made to a cold water supply line only.
- To help prolong the life of your machine and protect the boilers from scale build up we recommend using water filtration and softeners if your water's hardness level exceeds 3 grains. There are water hardness test strips included with the machine by which you can test your water. If you know that you will need a filtration/softener when ordering, you will be given the option to add the In-Tank Softener (if you plan to use the reservoir mode) or the Softening & Filtration System (if you plan to directly plumb in to a water source) upon check out.
- Warranty: One-year parts and labor provided by US distributor.
- The PID allows precise temperature control.
- There is plenty of steam with a dedicated 1.8 L steam boiler.
- E61 grouphead provides further temperature stability and pre-infusion.
- A good size machine that will take up quite a bit of space on your cabinet. (14.25" W x 17.25" D x 16.5" H)

The Fretta Iced Coffee Brewer is Hario's answer to brewing the perfect cup of iced coffee. Hario has combined their famous V60 brewer with a decanter and plastic diffuser to assure that the coffee is quickly cooled by hitting ice immediately after the brewing process. This quick heat transition is important in conserving the flavor of the coffee. The Fretta comes with 10 size 02 paper filters. We recommend that you purchase extra filters as well. To do this select filters as an add-on from the options on the right or go to our Hario 02 filter listing. Also recommend is a pouring kettle.

One of the top coffee grinder manufacturers has just released one of the most versatile grinders to date. With the capability of grinding from French press to espresso, the Mahlkonig Pro M provides the grinding range that would normally require two separate grinders. The grinding range combined with features like the "hands free" operation and break functionality help make this grinder ideal for both low-medium volume commercial settings and home use.
