Dalla Corte Mini owners
I am after any owners of the Dalla Corte Mini Machine. I am considering buying one of these machines and would like to know what current owners Love/ Hate about the machine.
also any other machine around this price bracket @ $3000
with simular features
nice to have a plumbed option
single group head
able to turn off the steam boiler
also I am looking to upgrading my grinder - would prefer a manual one.
Any help would be appreciated.
We evaluated the DC mini some years ago as a potential addition to range. We ultimately rejected it. Reasons were:
- Almost zero interest in the Australian market. I think a 2nd hand example would take a long time to sell or be sold at fire sale prices
- Very rough finish
- Poor internal build
- Poor analogue temperature control
At the time, my opinion was that there were many better options available in the $3k+ price bracket. My opinion hasn't changed!
Hope that helps.

Thanks very much, lots of choice out there Chris. Only problem being in Tassie is limited physical machines to look at. The limited take up of this brand was a bit of a concern, hence the question.
VBM do boar super 2b double boiler
Rocket R58 - new model
Izzo Alex Duetto 3
Just over what I had budgeted for but...
Maybe a mini mazzer but have to see what the benefits are with a flat over a conical bur?
No problem Phil.

We ship to Tassie pretty much each week.
Many thanks will give you a call next week
I would like to thank everyone who has given advice, I have just ordered my New Rocket R58. Now can't wait for it to arrive.
A very special thanks to Chris from Talk Coffee for all his help and advice.
