The Junior DT1 Cimbali espresso machine is a giant for its size and is a machine we would recommend hands down. While only 17″ tall and 12.5″ wide, it maintains a commercial build quality that properly taken care of should last well past 20 years.
These machines can be seen in a number of different places such as nice Italian restaurants, wine bars, coffee carts, or even in homes that want a professional coffee setup. They are perfect for places with limited space that are still seeking to serve top quality espresso as well as those that are wanting to offer great espresso but do not have significant volume needs. Being only 17″ tall, it is able to fit under standard cabinet heights of 17 3/4″.
The M21 Junior espresso machine is also jammed packed with features. For example, it has a very quiet rotary pump which allows for uninterrupted conversations unlike a vibratory pump which is noisier and is often found in other machines this size. It also has programmable volumetric dosing, passive pre-infusion, dual gauges, and a new three hole steam tip with smaller holes which makes it simple to produce great micro foam even when doing small quantities of milk.
