Prosumer / Pro Espresso: La Cimbali Junior
Previous Product Prosumer / Pro Espresso Next Product

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.

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.
Gerard Lombardo (quality: 6.4) 11.11.2003 Rating: 9.6
Bottom Line: Expensive initial investment more than justified by beautiful equipment and espresso that will put most commercial establishments to shame.

Bottom Line: Pasquini Livia 90 is to Jeep as Cimbali Junior is to HUMMER
David Blundell (quality: 7.7) 04.18.2004 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: Nothing beats playing on a machine of this quality and even my girlfiend understands.
Mark McKenzie (quality: 6.3) 08.21.2004 Rating: 9.6
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) 02.10.2005 Rating: 9.8
Bottom Line: Without a doubt, the finest single group espresso machine under $10,000.  Incredible machine.
Andy Black (quality: 6.8) 04.08.2005 Rating: 9.4
Bottom Line: As well as coffee addiction there's the problem of being addicted to using a really fine piece of machinery.
Warren Dern (quality: 1.8) 09.06.2005 Rating: 3.2
Bottom Line: the single worst consumer experience of my life
Bob LOSS (quality: 8.7) 11.09.2005 Rating: 9.0
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!
Sherman Amsel (quality: 7.5) 04.02.2006 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: A high-quality machine for the espresso enthusiast.  Must be willing to get your hands dirty.
Bill Domenz (quality: 5.8) 05.20.2006 Rating: 8.2
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!
Rich Westerfield (quality: 7.0) 10.30.2007 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: For a home machine, it would be tough to beat - for a commercial machine it's surprisingly excellent.
Barry Nielsen (quality: 8.0) 06.08.2009 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: An elegant and classic machine that will challenge any home barista to make the best coffee
Callum Hale Thomson 06.05.2010 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Fantastic machine, particularly at the price I purchased it out-however, weight and energy used may make it overkill for the home!
K Russ (quality: 8.0) 06.12.2011 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Awesome machine!
Rich C (quality: 9.0) 07.15.2011 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: It's price is beyond rubies.
