The Quick Mill Alexia 2011 Redesign features several upgrades from previous models, including an easy-access expansion valve (meaning you won't have to remove the whole shell) and a hinged water tank lid. Ardent espresso fans will find lasting love with Quick Mill's Alexia semi-automatic espresso quality. Featuring a single boiler, three-way on and off switch, boiler drain and a beautiful commercial-grade stainless steel casing, this espresso machine is the logical next step for any La Pavoni lovers transitioning from a manual pump espresso machine to a semi-automatic.
Features & Functionality of the Quick Mill Alexia Semi-Automatic
- Heavy-Duty Construction: The Alexia has a polished stainless steel housing with a removable cup warmer, large (46 oz) pull-out drip tray and grate.
- Commercial-Grade Boiler: Featuring a single boiler design with .75 liter capacity, the Alexia will heat quickly to brewing and steaming temperatures.
- Brass Portafilters: Chrome-plated brass portafilters are inspired by commercial design and offer improved temperature regulation.
- Easy Access Adjustment: Easy access to the expansion valve, meaning you will not have to remove the whole outer shell to access this adjustment.
- E-61 Brew Group: Featuring a thermal siphon design that stabilizes the brew group's temperature while inactive, the commercial-class E-61 brew group is excellent in temperature regulation and brews delicious espresso as a result.
- Low Water Cut Off: Saving your espresso machine from boiler burn-out, the Alexia features a precise magnetic sensor that cuts off power to the boiler when the water is low. The pump will still remain powered, however, so that you'll be able to finish that shot you were in the middle of pulling.
- Lever Controlled, 3-Way Bipass: Pulling a shot is easy with the Alexia's simple lever brewing system. The pressure release valve will leave you with an easily-disposable dry puck after you're finished.
- Pressure Gauge: The boiler pressure gauge allows you to easily calibrate your espresso machine.
- 52-Watt Pump: The Ulka vibratory pump features protection from thermal overload.
- Three Liter Water Reservoir: Minimize frequency in refill with this large capacity water reservoir.

with right tamp gives great shots.less so for frothing-small boiler.if you follow Chris' instructions and pull the shot 20 secs after light goes out you do not need a pid (unless you require much more than 20 ml of coffee at once.

Love the Alexia. Huge upgrade from my prior espresso maker that lasted me 12 years! It's a beautiful piece of equipment that is smaller than a Kitchen Aid, so fits in our Barista Cabinet very well. A little bit of a learning curve with the grind, tamping and use[...] Only regret - I wish i would have stepped up even more to the next level, cuz the cooling down of the machine after steaming the milk to pull the shot adds some time to the process. But...HUGE step up from the previous Barista machine already!
