About Lucca X58
Founded in 1945 in Milan Italy quick mill has become one of the pioneers in the world of home espresso. This is our second espresso machine collaboration with Quick Mill and we couldn’t be more excited this compact heat exchanger combines proven technology with beautiful design. All while keeping a sense of traditional italian heritage.
Newest Lucca Machine
Coffee today we’ll be taking a closer look at the newest lucca machine, the Lucca X58 from Quick Mill. Let’s jump in at first glance the X58 does look related to the widely loved Lucca M58 from the curved side panels mesh style drip tray sleek cup rail and of course our favorite joystick steam and hot water knobs.
But let’s not forget that we’re looking at a completely new machine the Lucca X58 is a compact heat exchanger with a stunning E61 style group head standing at 15.2 inches tall 11.5 inches wide and 19 inches deep the X58 is an attractive choice for those who might be short on counter space in the kitchen.
As a heat exchanger you’re able to quickly pull shots and steam milk at the same time without any delays in your workflow however it’s important to note that a cooling flush is necessary before pulling your first shots of the day for the most optimal brew temperature inside the machine you’ll find a 1.8 liter stainless steel steam boiler paired with a 1400 watt heating element.
Maximum Steam Performance
Resulting in maximum steam performance on the face of the machine you’ll find a pid for precise steam temperature control which also doubles into your integrated shot timer with just the flip of the brew lever the timer will automatically start timing your shots easily reaching 1.5 bar steam pressure you can certainly brush up on your latte art to impress your family and friends simply lock the joystick into place for instant on and off steam action and the insulated steam wand will get to work in testing.
We found steaming an eight-ounce pitcher of milk only takes about 15 seconds with the included two-hole steam tip. If you wish to increase steam speed you will also find a three and four hole tip included in the fully loaded accessory box.
Also within the box you’ll find a premium wood-handled stainless steel tamper, a double spouted portafilter as well as the coveted commercial style bottomless portafilter for those who are looking for something elegant and unique with just a touch of modern tech.
The Lucca X58 is an excellent option from the proven E61 style group head to the charming joystick knobs.
We know this machine is special if you’re searching for an upgrade or stepping into the world of home espresso. This machine is certainly worth a second look. We hope you’re as excited.
