Our customers are always asking us: what is a dual boiler coffee machine? If we can take as a given that they have two boilers, then the question is really; ‘why two boilers?’ Well, there’s more than one good reason for a dual boiler coffee machine.
With one boiler for brewing and another for steam, advantage number one is: you can brew and steam at the same time. This means no delay as you wait for the boiler to heat up to steam temp - you’re always ready to steam. If you own a cafe, need a machine for a communal space, have a big family, or just drink a lot of milky brews, this could be big.
You also have the advantage (number two) of having a boiler specialised and optimised for its own purpose. That means more control, greater range and total precision. This is why when baristas and home coffee aficionados alike choose a coffee machine, dual boiler is often the favoured option.
So, is a dual boiler espresso machine worth it? If only the best cup of coffee will suffice for you, and you want more control and greater precision in your brewing, then absolutely. Check out our full range to find the perfect dual boiler coffee machine for you.
