use the proper thick wall italian espresso cups with a small surface area (but with a thin rim - thick rims are unpleasant to drink from)

reiss.

You certainly have that right!

gorgeous video (and gorgeous machine)... I thought it was funny that while you were saying that you didn't design the londinium with a cup warmer and designed it so customers could warm their cups in 10 secs with hot water, there was a londinium sitting behind you with cups on them.  They don't get warm sitting on top of the machine like that?

Are not those cups sitting on top of a Bosco machine?

rgunson Said:

you need to get the cup really hot, but only fill to 10mm below the rim otherwise the rim will burn your lips, which is daft

Posted November 21, 2012 link

and having them sit upside down on top of an espresso machine will do just that- get the rims super hot (which is why I just insulated my elektra boiler)...  i'm 100% with you on this but just thought the juxtaposition of the shot of the machine with cups and you saying no cup warmer was funny.  great machine reiss, i really could see my self selling my lever and my t1 and getting the londinium.

Measuring the scace pressure results sound pretty interesting.  6.55 Bars on the Bosco compared to the claimed 11 Bar for the QM machine.  Any chance you can get that Scace to test the Londinium when your L-I arrives????

Cheers!

Stephen

Reiss:  thanks for Posting this: the circa 6.55bar single spring value is the maximum value of the dynamic pressure that was observed

the circa 11 bar value for the twin spring is a static value

the static value for the single spring is 9 bar

the maximum dynamic value for the twin spring is greater than 6.55bar, but only slightly (remember this dynamic figure is governed by the pressure that the coffee can hold back before water starts to flow through the puck) & only right at the start of the extraction

the value of a twin spring is that it handles up-dosing (i.e. >16g) better

Harmonized Tariff Schedule online makes it look like a 3.7% tariff.  I'm guessing ~$100 for duty+fees without any local accommodations.  Here's hoping I know this week! :)  

1- Click Here (www.usitc.gov)


I will, and I know others will too!

cheers! will

Will:  That was a cruel exercise!  My head still is in pain from reviewing the "Harmonized Tax Forms" ; the words harmony and taxes should never be used in the same book :-)  I am afraid my degree was in electronics and not Tax Law.

When you finally get a bottom line please Post the Import Fees and the Model of machine you received then clarity will filter back into my addled brain :-)  I will Post the bottom line results for the Seattle area when it arrives.

I'll post more when I can later, but I received the machine (beautiful) and DHL didn't ask me for payment. So, uh, ? :)
