Maybe you’re ready for your first prosumer espresso machine, or maybe it’s time for an upgrade. Either way, there’s a Quick Mill model for you. The company makes a wide range of prosumer machines, each with an intelligent design and quality materials. Keep reading for five of the very best reviews, plus a handy guide to choosing the perfect model for you.

As a longtime manufacturer of premium coffee makers, there’s no need to worry about choosing a bad Quick Mill model. They’re all fantastic. The key is finding the right model to fit your needs. So here are five great options for five different lifestyles.

Best Quick Mill Espresso Machines:

1. Vetrano 2B Evo

The newly updated Vetrano 2B Evo is Quick Mill’s top-of-the-line big double boiler. It’s the model that showcases all the brand’s best features. If you’re really serious about good espresso drinks ― like multiple drinks in a row several times a day ― this is the machine for you.

Both boilers are stainless steel in the latest edition, a popular choice in recent years due to their longevity. The brew boiler is an ample 0.75 liters, and the steam boiler is 1.4 liters. They aren’t the biggest on the market, but they strike a nice balance between being user-friendly and having a small footprint. The temperature of both boilers is independently controlled by PID, and the PID display doubles as a shot timer.

The brew group is the classic E61, known for its excellent temperature stability. Coupled with the PID, this machine really nails the desired brew temperature, a key quality when brewing specialty coffee, according to pros like Kim Ossenblok of Dalla Corte.

2. QM67

If the Vetrano 2B Evo is the double boiler for the serious coffee nerd, the QM67 is the double boiler for the rest of us. It’s similar in many ways, but scaled down in size and price.

Like the Vetrano, it has two stainless steel boilers, each with PID temperature control, and an E61 brew group (2). Temperature stability is definitely never an issue with this model. The brew boiler is the same 0.75 liters, and the steam boiler is a slightly smaller 1 liter. So you won’t achieve quite the same maximum steaming power, but you get a more compact machine as a result.

The biggest difference between the QM67 and the Vetrano is that the QM67 has a vibration pump. That makes it a bit louder and means that you can’t plumb it to a water line. Fortunately, the 3 liter water reservoir is not only large but easily accessible. You can fill it from the top of the machine without having to remove the warming tray.

3. Andreja Premium Evo

Heat exchangers (HX) require a slightly different workflow than double boilers, and generally have a bit more of a learning curve. But they are incredibly popular with consumers for a good reason. They’re cheaper than dual boilers, and once you’ve mastered your machine, you’ll be brewing coffee and steaming milk (at the same time) like a pro.

Andreja is one of their best-sellers overall. That said, if you’re looking to save a bit of money and space, the Anita is nearly identical but with a slightly smaller boiler.

At its heart is a 1.8-liter T.E.A.-coated brass boiler that’s heated by a powerful 1400 Watt heating element, which means it heats up fast and recovers quickly between shots. It uses the industry-standard E61 brew group to ensure temperature stability, including an automatic pre-infusion for the best extraction.

The Quick Mill Andreja Premium Evo uses a 52 Watt Ulka pump, which is widely regarded as one of the best vibratory pumps. This one is equipped with metal rather than plastic ends and thermal overload protection for a longer lifespan, and it has a pulsar that makes it 25% quieter.

One thing Andreja doesn’t have is PID temperature control. This is common with heat exchangers because the PID has less impact on this design. Instead, it’s better to learn your machine and use cooling flushes to manage the temperature.
