2020 Quickmill Andreja Review Model 0980
None of your friends are going to own a Quickmill Andreja. Frankly, this is too much espresso machine for most of them. But, if they did and bought it years ago it would look nearly the same and would still make amazing drinks. Quick Mill hasn’t changed the Andreja espresso machine much with time. The idea is that once you perfected something, keep doing what you are doing.
The Quickmill Andreja has some of the very best brewing and milk steaming and foaming found anywhere. This espresso machine produces coffee drinks every bit as good as the skill of the user. So, if you are looking for a manual machine like this, you could do a lot worse.
Andreja: Classic Looks, Timeless Perfection
At first glance, the Quickmill Andreja Classic looks like it may have been built in the 50s. Actually, this Milan produced espresso maker was updated in 2018. This includes some color and chrome accents. But, the core of what makes the Andreja special is unchanged.
True Commercial Power and Quality
The Quick Mill Andreja Classic E61 Model 0980 has a group head heat exchanger instead of a traditional boiler or Thermoblock. As a result, it CAN make perfect espresso and steamed milk all day long. So, it you don’t want to learn to manage the coffee grinding, tamping, the temperature and pressure of the steam, and the milk steaming and foaming then bow out and review our list of the best super automatic espresso makers. The Andreja is not for people who don’t want to learn how to make great espresso.
Quick Mill Andreja model 0980 Classic comes with a very nice tamper and great single and porta filters. So, you don’t really need to upgrade the accessories. Just buy a grinder and coffee beans and get brewing.
Quick Mill Brewing Technology
You have a lot of control but also a lot of room for error. If you want to treat making espresso like an art form (and we get it if you do) then this is a great choice.
It has an adjustable expansion valve on the top of the machine and a heat exchanger. This allows you to brew and steam simultaneously and both can come put perfectly.
Everything on the Quickmill Andreja is commercial grade including the Sirai Pressure Stat. It has an audible low water warning and a true commercial grade vibratory pump.
Quickmill Andreja Microfoam
Espresso machines with heat exchangers like Quick Mill’s Andreja model this tend to have larger mechanisms than boiler-based machines. So, machines like the Andreja make amazing milk-based drinks.
If you want the very best milk-based drinks you can get them with this.
The Best Coffee Grinder for the Quick Mill Andreja
The Quick Mill Andreja is a manual machine and does not come with an integrated coffee grinder so you will need to by one. We recommend either the Rancilio Rocky or the Eureka Mignon Specialita grinders, both of which are best in class and will do a machine like the Andreja justice. If, you prefer there are plenty of options to the Quickmill Andreja that come with integrated grinders.

Quickmill Andreja Review
We hope that this Quickmill Andreja review was useful. The Quickmill Andreja is an excellent, but challenging machine. If this is intimidating, the Quick Mill Andreja may not be ideal for you. then a more automated machine like a Delonghi ECAM22110SB could be a better option. If you want commercial grade and top quality, and feel your barista skills (and precision and discipline) are up for the task, then take a look at the Nuova Simonelli Musica or it’s slightly more user friendly cousin, the fantastic Simonelli Oscar.
