ALL Quick Mill espresso machines are now being made with T.E.A coated boilers (same as Ruveco Teck used in Cimbali machines). This protection process drastically decreases the possibility of metal in the drinks delivered. The brass components are also manufactured with LOW LEAD* Stainless Steel Construction: All of our Quick Mill espresso machines use only #304 food grade stainless steel, including the frame.
Vacuum Breaker Valve: No vapor lock problems with this valve if you want to put your machine on a timer.
52 Watt Ulka Pump with Brass Ends and Thermal Protection: Higher wattage pumps do not have to work as hard and produce less noise. Brass ends won't loosen up and develop leaks like less expensive 41 watt Ulka pumps with plastic ends. The pump has a built-in thermal overload protection couple mounted on the side of the pump coil, which will protect the pump by shutting it off in the event it runs too long and gets too hot.
Second Magnetic Sensor: This sensor gives you a low audible alert to let you know you will need to add water soon. You can finish the shot you are pulling and even do a couple more before the second sensor will kill power to the heater. Even if you fail to add water at this point, the second sensor only kills power to the heater and not the pump.
Resettable Hi-limit: Protects the heating element. No fusible link that has to be replaced; just push down and it's reset.
Easy Access Boiler Drain: We added a drain plug to the bottom of the boiler and increased the size of the opening to the access port. This way, you can drain your boiler completely for whatever reason. You can add a piece of silicone tubing to the end of the drain plug and twist the plug open, making it easy to drain into your sink or a bucket.
- Hinged cover - no need to remove the cup warming tray to refill the water

The short story - this is one excellent machine, both in appearance and in function. I could not be happier with using it and its performance. It's just a dream to me.
I came from a Rancilio Silva, a very competent machine in its own regard - after 9 years of proving to myself that "I really would use an espresso machine." Well, that ran a little long, but moving to the Andreja has been terrific. The Silvia is a single boiler machine and the step up to the heat exchanger variety (which Andreja is) was huge. I had pretty much mastered Silva to produce pretty good espresso, but a week with Andreja and I am making espresso in a very repeatable way - something that was very difficult with the Silvia. The primary reason is the consistent temperature and pressure afforded by the heat exchanger (HX) boiler and E-61 brewhead. Unlike the single boiler Silvia, there is no waiting for steam to come up or the temperature to recover - it's pretty much there all the time and read. The most there is to do is to do a cooling flush when the machine's been sitting awhile, you just push the brew lever up and wait until the water stops sputtering (it's hot enough to flash to steam - you don't want to brew with that extra hot water!) and you're ready to go.
The steam is an excellent dry and consistent steam - microfrothing is a big improvement as well. You can make a big frothy head if you like, but I like nothing but smooth creamy steamed milk and Andreja is totally competent at it.
As long as you have the water in the tank to do it, you can continually pull shots and steam milk with no delay waiting for the boiler to recover or heat up. Single boiler machine like the Siliva must heat up to steam temperature so there is waiting after pulling the shot for steam to make up, or if you steam first and brew afterwards, you're still waiting on the temperature to stabilize. The HX boiler eliminates this completely. There's a continual supply of water and steam to make your drinks when you want them. Making multiple drinks for guests was a chore on Silvia - no more with Andreja!
In many ways I wish I had upgraded to this machine sooner, but on the other hand, experience with Silvia has been very valuable in understanding the process and makes me appreciate Andreja all the more.
Having said that, this would still be an ideal entry into espresso. The machine is very consistent about its behavior and when you understand the relationship of grind and tamping and brew time, you'll go a long way to great espresso. If you are entering home espresso with a machine like this - consider that you will have to spend at least $600-900 for a grinder. I am currently using a Rancilio Rocky, and it's barely able to make the adjustments (it's both stepped, and at the bottom end of acceptablilty for good espresso grinding) so an upgrade is on the short list. Having the Andreja has revealed Rocky's shortcomings.
Finally, the appearance is stunning. The group is a beautiful chrome and it's all surrounded with polished high grade stainless steel in beautiful rounded edges. It looks fantastic on the countertop and is sure to make a splash when guests see it - it says that "there is serious espresso made here!"
Whether you are a newbie to home espresso, or upgrading from a single boiler machine, you will love the Andreja Premium!
My only concern now is getting good beans and grinding them to the appropriate fineness.
Unlike other espresso machines, this one don't have a 'descaling' procedure - it includes a test strip to check your water, and if it's too hard (mine is) then you must buy and use distilled water. Not a big inconvenience.
It is a remarkable machine, easy to use, makes better coffee than the place on every corner, and I can have my coffee at home anytime I want without standing in line. If you like coffee, particularly if you like Latte' then this machine is a must have item. And it looks really impressive in the kitchen. Make no mistake, the weight on the specs is correct, this is a pro-sumer machine, the stainless steel welded frame and polished stainless exterior and a large boiler makes this thing a beast. Get the optional water connection kit or put some felt pads on the feet to make it easier to slide on the counter top when you want to refill. I also recommend investing in a good grinder. I purchased the Quick Mill grinder that matches this machine, sometimes I regret buying the non-doser option but I have never regretted the purchase. The coffee literally improved so much it was obvious. If you have had bag coffee and fresh ground at home you know the difference, multiple that difference 10-15X over and that is how much a burr grinder improves over a simple little home grinder from a local retail store.
To make it simple, this machine is on the very short list of things I own that if it got stolen or destroyed by fire, I would run and buy an exact copy immediately no questions asked.
