50% off Quick Mill 820 Domestic Coffee Machine $499 + Free Shipping @ DIPACCI

40

With the Quick Mill 820 Black, you're getting a high-quality espresso machine. This is thanks to the copper thermoblock and the brass waterpipes, both of which are resistant to limescale. This makes this espresso machine a lot more durable than machines with a stainless-steel interior. The espresso machine has a large 1.8-liter water tank. This allows you to easily make several espressos in a row. You can preheat the cups on the heating plate or with the hot water function. This way, your espresso won't cool down as soon as it gets poured into the cup. With the steam wand, you can also prepare milk specialties. From now on, you won't have to leave the house anymore to get a good cup of coffee.

    Does a thermoblock give you constant steam? and also water at the same time or something?

    •  

      Are you referring to thermoblock technology in general, or this particular machine's thermoblock?

      AFAIK a thermoblock is just a method of "instant" (or on demand) heating. Like on-demand gas hot water heaters vs storage heaters.

      I assume you are wondering if it is single or dual ?

    can you brew and steam at the same time? how does it compare to Silvia V4?

      For one thing this seems to have a panarello steam want which are not as good as silvia's normal single hole steam wand (which does produce decent steam for a single boiler if you let it get up to temp). With single boiler thermoblock machines like this or the silvia you're not going to be able to steam and brew at the same time (you need a dual boiler or true heat exchanger machine for that). You'll have to either steam then cool flush and pull a shot, or pull a shot, change to steam and wait for the boiler to get to steam temp. In any case you'll probably have to do some kind of "temperature surfing" procedure if you want consistent brew temps. It all sounds a lot more complex than it is.. I had a silvia for years and it was a nice machine to use. If you install a PID controller it can be made more simple still.

          Try a lelit mara.. the footprint is just as small (if not smaller) but it’s a HX machine with an e61 group.. I am in love :)

        Hi Simula have you installed a PID?

        I have a v4 and its a great machine but im not sure about pid'g it.

          I never got around to it. I did change the shower screen to an IMS competition one and modified the shower screen bolt to a flush bolt (got sick of seeing the indentation in the puck and wondering if it caused channeling). Also bought a naked and VST basket. I always intended to install a PID but ended up being gifted a Lelit Mara before that happened. I did have a friend with a PIDed Silvia. Had no issues as it’s a fairly simple mod and doesn’t require any modifications to the plumbing or mechanical parts. It does basically make temperature completely stable and totally removes the need to temp surf so you can focus on your grind, distribution and tamp.

      No it's a single boiler but great price non the less. If you're looking for a dual boiler (no wait time between coffee and steam) then the Breville BES920 is untouchable. Nothing comes close in the price range. They tend to have a shorter life span than a full commercial model, but a dual boiler with the same feature set will cost you more than double.

        thanks, was hoping this one had a dual boiler, i'll pass

        We have both a Silvia and a BES920. The Breville is a dream to run and makes good coffee without much effort.

        The Silvia is a lot more manual and getting good coffee takes practice and paying close attention. I also prefer the Rocky grinder - but it, like the Breville, is too big for our flat kitchen - so they live in Canberra while the Silvia/ Breville grinder combo live in Melbourne. :-(

    Sunbeam dual thermoblock ….steams and does coffee at the same time …..

      Yeah my EM7000 does a great job, although steam pressure has dropped a little. Paired up with a Breville Smart Grinder Pro and you really don't need to go out for coffee.
