The Junior DT/1 is a full commercial machine designed for small spaces and tight budgets (relatively speaking). It features high quality parts, a rotary pump, and requires plumbing in. Note - if you wrote a review for the Junior in another category, it will be moved here.
Rich C (quality: 9.0)
Bottom Line: It's price is beyond rubies.
Bob LOSS (quality: 8.7)
Bottom Line: When I bought this machine the salesperson said something like, “this is a very good machine and if you look after it you could well be buying your last espresso machine”. After using it for 15 months I think she may well be right!
Ken Fox (quality: 8.5)
Bottom Line: Buy a Cimbali Jr. if you are looking to buy your last espresso machine, because there won't be a reason to ever upgrade it.
K Russ (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: Awesome machine!
Barry Nielsen (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: An elegant and classic machine that will challenge any home barista to make the best coffee
David Blundell (quality: 7.7)
Bottom Line: Nothing beats playing on a machine of this quality and even my girlfiend understands.
Sherman Amsel (quality: 7.5)
Bottom Line: A high-quality machine for the espresso enthusiast. Must be willing to get your hands dirty.
Rich Westerfield (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: For a home machine, it would be tough to beat - for a commercial machine it's surprisingly excellent.
Andy Black (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: As well as coffee addiction there's the problem of being addicted to using a really fine piece of machinery.
Gerard Lombardo (quality: 6.4)
Bottom Line: Expensive initial investment more than justified by beautiful equipment and espresso that will put most commercial establishments to shame.
Mark McKenzie (quality: 6.3)
Bottom Line: Divine espresso from a beautiful machine that's a pleasure to use (if looked after) - what more could you ask for?
Todd Lando (quality: 6.3)
Bottom Line: Without a doubt, the finest single group espresso machine under $10,000. Incredible machine.
Bill Domenz (quality: 5.8)
Bottom Line: How can you possibly go wrong when for the price of 2 to 3 frothy coffee drinks a day, you can make as many as you want, so you might as well reach in that pocket or purse and spend your coin a little more wisely!
C. J. Eccher (quality: 4.8)
Bottom Line: Pasquini Livia 90 is to Jeep as Cimbali Junior is to HUMMER
Michael Di paolo (quality: 4.1)
Bottom Line: SIMPLY THE BEST..SECOND TO NO OTHER MACHINE..WORTH EVERY SINGLE PENNY !!!!
Warren Dern (quality: 1.8)
Bottom Line: the single worst consumer experience of my life
Callum Hale Thomson
Bottom Line: Fantastic machine, particularly at the price I purchased it out-however, weight and energy used may make it overkill for the home!
