The Curated Take
This espresso machine is a fantastic option for those who want to brew and steam simultaneously but don’t necessarily need the power or price of a dual boiler setup. The Steel Duo uses two thermocoils to heat the brew path and steam sections separately.
In addition to this steaming feature, the Steel Duo also features great programmability using the toggle switches on the front of the machine.
Great looks, great build quality, and even working lights for the brewing area round out why this is often one of my most Curated machines!
- Brew and steam at the same time
- Programmable shot volumes
- Great looks and build quality
- Slightly slower steaming than heat exchangers
DUO - One thermoblock dedicated for coffee and one dedicated for steam for dual performance!
