Seattle Coffee Gear has posted their crew review, seems pretty positive.

Unfortunately there really isn't much information in the review about the features and how it impacts the quality of the shot (I'm not one for milk)...

Hehe, Breville uses the preview from Mark on their USA site as a 9.5 review.


"In an extensive Independent Review, May 18, 2011, CoffeeGeek.com - the "biggest coffee blog site in the world" - awarded the Dual Boiler a "First Look Rating of 9.5"


I doubt that that read the fine print on the first page of the first look...

It just might be??? I wonder if their warranty is global, plus I suppose we just get use to things being dearer down here. Probably the difference might not be that much if you take in the difference in the dollars and shipping and insurance etc.

This machine is starting to sound pretty good. interesting to note that on the seattle coffee gear crew review of the machine that you will need to have a commercial descaling done on the machine every three years. and you can't do that yourself. that would be an expensive shipping problem. I would like to get more info on that.

I just noticed that some discussion of this has occured earlier in the forum. sorry for the repeat. however, if someone does know what the plans are for servicing the machine that would be great. for example, will dealers be able to service or will they need to return to the manufacturer.

The price in Canada is 1399$ on Breville website
Click Here (www.breville.ca)

The 1199 price point had me but at 1399 I'm reconsidering my purchase

Why 200$ more than the US, our dollair is par??

Breville has announced on Facebook that the machine is on the shelves in the US:

The Dual Boiler has just hit the shelves in the USA http://ow.ly/1ycNtu

Their link goes to Williams-Sonoma, and Amazon has it listed as well (but out of stock.)

The prices is $1199.95 at WS and four cents higher at Amazon.

no descale, no home repair possibility, one year warranty and I have heard through one dealer that the availability of parts is limited. I am not finding answers as to how this machine can be serviced post warranty. has anyone heard anything?
