  • Dalla Corte Mini owners

    Hi all

    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
    dual boiler
    volumetric
    nice to have a plumbed option
    single group head
    rotary pump
    pid control
    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.

    Hello Phil,

    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
    • Overpriced

    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.

    Chris

      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.
      Shortlist now
      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?

      Cheers
      Phil

        No problem Phil.

        I have plenty of experience with all of them and can talk you through some pros and cons if you wish.

        We ship to Tassie pretty much each week.

        Cheers

        Chris
