Two Boilers

Babila is a dual boiler machine. In general, water used for milk steaming has to be hotter than the water used for coffee brewing. In dual boiler machines while one boiler heats the water for coffee brewing the other boiler heats the water for milk steaming and since these two proccesses require different temperatures such machines are faster as both boilers work simultaneously as opposed to the single boiler ones which have to wait between steaming and brewing sessions.
