Isomac Zaffiro Due Coffee Machine

Unlike some coffee machines, which are designed differently for professional coffee makers, or beginner coffee lovers who aren't trained in making espresso shots, the Isomac Zaffiro Due is a multi-purpose machine that’s appropriate for all levels of experience.

This machine boasts one of the largest boilers on the market, which clocks in at an impressive 0.8 litres. A large boiler has a variety of benefits and some of these include a faster recovery time between drinks as well as the capacity to have more steam ready to brew coffee quickly.

The machine itself is very simple to use and equipped with easy switches and levers for ease of use. Additionally, the pressure gauges allow users to monitor exactly how much pressure is applied to the brew during extraction, which helps users make a great cup of coffee.

Isomac has added the tried and true E61 group head, which is known for its simplicity, consistency and quality for every brew. This group head will make sure your coffee is perfect pre infused. 

This top-of-the-range appliance features a massive 3 litre water reservoir that will remove the hassle of having to frequently top it up. Once the water eventually gets low, the Zaffiro Due coffee machine has an auto-off built in to stop the machine from brewing without enough water, helping to add years onto the life span of the machine.

Thanks to these impressive features, the Zaffirdo Due Coffee Machine is capable of making an exceptional cup of coffee.

  • Boiler size: 0.8 litres 
  • Weight: 19 kg
  • Height: 410 mm
  • Width: 230 mm
  • Depth: 430 mm

Isomac Pro Dual Boiler PID Coffee Machine

If you’re looking to up your at-home coffee game, and are looking for a great coffee machine, then the Isomac Pro Dual Boiler PID is the perfect fit.

Equipped with dual boilers, this machine is able to pull a shot of espresso while steaming milk at the same time. This technology streamlines the coffee making process, which is beneficial for residential or commercial use.

Each boiler has its own pump pressure gauges, helping to ensure that the quality of the coffee shot is of a high standard. The Isomac Pro Dual Boiler PID has also been equipped with a long-lasting rotary pump that helps with the longevity of the machine and keeps the quality of the coffee more consistent.

Like the Isomac Zaffiro Due, this model also has a very large water tank. It’s 2.9 litre capacity means that it can make a large amount of coffee before it needs to be refilled. Furthermore, Isomac has added the option to have the tank connected to a main water source, completely removing the need to refill. 

Not only has the Pro Dual Boiler PID been made with quality in mind it was also created to be one of the safest on the market. Isomac has added a no burn wand. A no burn wand is a milk steaming wand that is insulated, meaning that the outside of the wand won’t be dangerously hot to touch, helping to protect users from getting burnt.

  • Power output: 220-240 watts
  • Boiler size: Dual 1.8 Liters steam /0.6 brew 
  • Weight: 40 kg
  • Height: 425 mm
  • Width: 300 mm
  • Depth: 425 mm

Isomac Pro 6.1 Coffee Machine

There’s no denying that the Isomac Pro 6.1 Coffee Machine is a good looking appliance. Its stylish and sleek design ensures that it looks great sitting on any kitchen top, or cafe counter. However, the impressive features of this appliance go much deeper than just face value.

Isomac has created this appliance with longevity and value in mind. Firstly, the insulated copper heat exchange is certainly a stand out feature. Copper is well known for its temperature consistency and stability, helping to produce a great espresso every time. Thanks to its stability, copper ensures that heat isn’t transferred to parts of the machine where it isn’t required, adding longevity to the life span of the appliance.

Another high appreciated feature of the Isomac Pro 6.1 is its cup warming feature. This will ensure that when your shot is ready to pour that the temperature will not change, even when being poured into a cold glass. Without this feature, the taste of the espresso can be compromised, and commonly produce a more bitter taste.

Isomac has installed a rotary pump for a quieter coffee-making experience. However, rotary pumps don’t just make the process less disruptive, they also help to offer a very consistent pressure, which is essential to making a great cup of coffee every time.

  • Power output: 220-240 watts
  • Boiler size: 1.8 liter 
  • Weight: 22 kg
  • Height: 410 mm
  • Width: 300 mm
  • Depth: 410 mm
  • Pump: Rotary

The Bottom Line

Isomac have perfectly balanced high quality features with affordable prices. Their coffee machines are able to create espresso shots of professional quality, without the accompanying sky-high price tag. If you're after the very best coffee machine - that provides reliability, value and quality without breaking the bank - then this brand of coffee machines is the perfect fit.

Reasons to buy an Isomac coffee machine


Over the years Isomac has built a solid reputation for producing some of the highest quality machines available. When purchasing an appliance from this brand, you can be confident knowing that you’re getting a high-quality product that will last a long time.

Customer support

Isomac coffee machines are of such high quality, that often there’s very little need for any troubleshooting or assistance. However, should you find yourself in a situation where you do need support from the company, the customer service team is known for being very helpful and easy to contact.


Isomac espresso coffee machines are certainly considered a premium machine and considering their quality, their price tags are generally surprising affordable. In fact, when comparing quality to price, Isomac cofee machines are commonly considered one of the best options available.

Reasons to avoid an Isomac coffee 

Lack of portability

Like most espresso machines, the Isomac espresso machines generally aren’t very portable. Of course, they have smaller sizes available which can be easily moved. However, these machines aren’t suitable to take somewhere very remote, like on a camping trip or weekend away. If you’re constantly on the move and looking for a coffee maker that’s very portable, you’re better off opting for a Moka pot or AeroPress.


Isomac machines are very well priced when considering their exceptional quality and extensive features. However, they are far from budget coffee machines. If you’re a casual coffee drinker and looking for something very cheap to quickly brew a coffee, you may be better off opting for another brand.
