Detailed Commentary

Going from a single boiler machine to the Duetto is life changing.  

Make espresso got infinitely easier and better.  Looking back I don't know what I was doing trying to make great espresso on a Lelit.  Even though I recognise that the price of the Duetto is relatively very high, I do not regret spending that kind of money on this machine considering how much I love it, and I would do it again 10 out of 10 times.  It has reduced the time to make espresso and lattes, as well as significantly raised the ceiling for espresso quality (and I really mean significantly).

With the Duetto espresso preparation is a lot less frustrating than it used to be.

Buying Experience

Buying from Chris was great - easy and fast.
