It could very well be the best dual purpose boiler machine (single boiler for steam and brewing) on the planet - our full blown Detailed Review will tell the tales, but for now, CoffeeGeek takes a First Look at the Isomac Zaffiro espresso machine.

The Zaffiro machine is not cheap, but as with many things in the espresso world, you get what you pay for. Just looking at the machine reveals where a lot of the cost goes - the beautiful and function E61 grouphead is right up front. Loads of polished steel.

Two portafilters supplied. Excellent styling in the Bauhaus motif. Inside there even more to the story. Solid, commercial connections between pump and boiler, boiler and grouphead. A 0.8 litre boiler, one of the biggest dual-purpose boilers on the market today. 42 pounds, dry weight. Quality build, inside and out.

As always, this is a first look only - you'll have to wait for the detailed review for our definitive say on this machine.
