The newly upgraded Quick Mill Vetrano, the Vetrano Evo 2B is a semi-automatic espresso machine that has numerous features that make this machine one of Quick Mill’s best machines in their product mix. Some of the features include, a quiet rotary pump, a PID controller, commercial grade components, and, of course a double boiler! The features that are packed into this compact machine, along with the beautiful, luxurious design, make it one of the best available in the high end espresso machine market.
Double Boiler System for Brewing and Steaming
If you are going to make a significant investment in a high end espresso machine, you will definitely want a machine with a double boiler system. If you’ve ever used an espresso machine with a single boiler, you’ll know how inconvenient it can be, especially if you are in a hurry, or are making a lot of drinks at one time.
With the double boiler on the Vetrano 2B you’ll be able to brew and steam at the same time. Both are available on demand with no wait time in between. Both boilers have a lot of heating power behind them, especially for a 120 volt machine. The steaming boiler is powered with a 1100 watt heating element and the brewing boiler is powered with a 800 watt heating element. To protect the components in your valuable investment, both of the boilers are well insulated to prevent overheating.
Quiet Rotary Pump
Most home espresso machines are equipped with vibratory pumps. While there are a lot of high quality pumps on the market, they also tend to be quite noisy. If you don’t like noisy machines, you’ll love this machine. Rather than being equipped with a vibratory pump, the Vetrano 2B has a Fluid-O-Tech rotary vane pump – one of the quietest pumps available for a home espresso machine. Most machines that have these types of pumps are commercial machines costing many thousands more!
Pump pressure can be monitored through dual pressure gauges mounted on the front of the machine. If adjustment is needed, a screw on the rotary pump can be turned until the desired pressure is achieved.
Legendary E61 Brew Head
For ultimate temperature stability, the Quick Mill Vetrano 2B is equipped with one of the most loved brew heads on the market today, the legendary E61 group head. This is a commercial grade, high end brew group with a thermal siphon design that produces amazing espresso shots every time the machine is operated. For an enhanced operating experience, the machine has a pressure release valve and a three way bypass system that relieves pressure on the coffee puck and dries it out immediately after extraction. This provides for a drip free operating experience and allows for easy removal of the puck from the filter basket.
Direct Water Connection and Drain System Options
While the Vetrano 2B comes fully equipped with a high quality, 3 liter water reservoir, it also has the flexibility of having unlimited water supply through a direct water line connection option. With this option, you’ll never have to worry about adding water to your espresso machine again! The machine comes with the fittings needed for direct connection and making the connection is quite straight forward.
For additional convenience, the espresso machine even comes with the option to hookup to a drain system. However, if you don’t have a drain system available, not a problem! The espresso machine also comes with an easily accessible drip tray.
No Burn Stainless Steel Wands
As with other Quick Mill espresso machines, the Vetrano 2B comes with stainless steel wands that have advanced no burn technology. With this technology, the only part of the wand that gets hot is the tip. The rest of the wand has stainless steel exterior and a Teflon lined interior, allowing the exterior to remain cool to touch. With this feature you will have less risk of burning yourself and you won’t have to worry about milk getting burned onto the wand exterior.
One of the wands is a 4 hole steam wand that makes frothing and steaming quick and easy. The other wand is a hot water nozzle for making Americanos, hot chocolate, or hot tea.
Commercial Grade Construction Materials
For a classy look and durability, the Vetrano 2B has an exterior, including the shell, cup warmer, drip tray, and drain gate, made with high quality, 304 stainless steel . Stainless steel is easy to clean and is resistant to acid stain and rust, providing you with a machine that looks great and will last for years to come.
Commercial Grade Brass Portafilters
The Vetrano 2B comes with two high quality, commercial grade, brass portafilters that provide outstanding temperature stability and long lasting durability. The portafilters are 58mm and are also coated with chrome for additional heat stability.
Dual Manometer / Pressure Controller
A dual manometer monitors the pressure in the boilers. When there are drops in pressure, the manometer recognizes those changes and turns the heating element on to stabilize the boiler pressure. Users can easily monitor the pressure control through a front mounted gauge.

This is a rock solid machine. Having a dual boiler setup makes changing brew temperatures for light to dark roast coffees very easy and very fast. Flow control allows me to experiment with preinfusion and postinfusion to really round out a flavor profile. Steaming on this is very easy, especially with the default installed 2 hole steam tip. Recovery for brewing and steaming is very fast. I'm used to working with paddles, but went with the knobs because I preferred the chunky look. The are really smooth to work and since they are not compression fittings, I don't have to crank down on them to close the valve. The only item I wished this came with was a bottomless portafilter. I could have picked one up from Espressooutlet with the gift package they provided with purchase of this machine, but I opted to get a different design. With the extended preinfusion, 20 - 35 seconds, at 1ml per second, channeling and spurting during the shot is nonexistent. This is a rock solid machine which I hope to have for decades to come.
Approximate Time Owned 3 Rating Overall 5 Reliability Rating 5 Value for the Price 5 Usability Rating 5 Aesthetics Rating 5 Detailed Review: Excellent E61 machine with large boilers and attention to detail. I use it daily and have it plumbed to a 7 Gal water reservoir. PID, timer, preinfusion and reliability.
Approximate Time Owned 2 years Rating Overall 5/5 Reliability Rating 5/5 Value for the Price 5/5 Usability Rating 5/5 Aesthetics Rating 5/5 Detailed Review The Vetrano is a tank... well dual tank if we are talking boilers. It weighs in at somewhere around 70lbs or something crazy like that. Point is, all that mass creates stable heat. The E61 group is heated as well, and does pretty good at minimizing heat loss as the shot brews. Shots have been pretty wonderful so far. I really can’t say more about how well this machine has performed for me. I upgraded from a Silvia and have never regretted it. Shot timer is super handy. The portafilters sit level on counter for tamping. The biggest downside I can think of is that when converted to 110v, it does take a minute to recover temp to set brew temp. And, I usually only do smaller drink servings but wonder if the steam boiler might be a touch small if you are doing larger milk drinks.
I have had the machine for only about a week replacing an Exobar Office singe boiler. I love the Vetrano so far. It heats quickly (faster than my single boiler Exobar), and the extraction is excellent. Other reviewers commented on the large tray for the waste water, but it's less than my previous machine. Both the water tank and the tray have indentations for a valve and the water hose. So, you can't fill the tank all the way. A fill line would be helpful. My machine is sitting under a cupboard so I have to make sure I don't overfill it.
The machine makes GREAT Cappuccino. Last 14 years we have used a Gaggia Classic which was very good but this machine is fabulous. Service from Espresso Outlet is top notch.
My experience with Joe has been great. He has been very patient with all my questions (and there were many). Pros: Quality build, separate boiler shutoffs means I can warm up and keep the brew boiler ready and then 3-1/2 minutes later the steam boiler is ready to go, thus saving me money on my electric bill. Boiler maintenance will happen eventually on all machines, descaling, and draining them can be a pain. Quickmill made this easy by placing an access plate on the bottom of the machine that allows you to drain the boilers without having to remove them. Nice layout of wiring and plumbing, easy to follow. A special valve placed on top of the boilers means water from a boiler over-pressurizing doesn't spray all over the electronics, but rather into the drip tray. Nice big drip tray. Easy access to tank for refilling. Cons: Goes thru water fairly fast so need to keep up with tank filling. If you fit it under a cabinet like I do, it means moving it out, filling it, then putting it back under the cabinet again (use furniture pads on the feet to make it slide easier). Over all, I'm making great coffee, steaming milk quickly, and this machine has made my daily routine easier and more enjoyable.
Great price, great packaging and great product. Delivered as promised. The thing is a tank! I just wish it had auto shut off. Otherwise perfecto!
Extremely easy to use and clean up. Makes perfect froth every time.
Great machine, quiet and easy to operate.
