Jcm800 Said:

As for the grinder, the wife occassionally does french press and drip. Some reviews suggest that the Vario can produce grinds that brew up muddy coffee for these types. Something about more angular grinds? This is mentioned in the Bella Barista UK grinder comparison. It seems also that some Varios are - or were shipping with slightly different set ups on the burrs which needed to be adjusted.

It's more about the range of adjustment available, limited because of the use of levers rather than say a "dial".

With your location being Devon, ensure you buy an Espresso Machine that's

  • Well supported and easy to service yourself
  • Something you won't want to upgrade from for a long time (if ever)

The warranties for the prosumer machines are only covered by the Retailer, not the manufacturer (bought out warranties)....who you buy from is critically important.....if you see a vendor who doesn't carry spares, you might want to think quite hard about whether you want a machine from them! If you buy an HX machine, you will "possibly" want to upgrade in a few years time...an expensive process. Think hard about whether to buy an HX or  Dual boiler machine.
