No problem. I know what's it's like to get a machine without a manual and be left wondering "do I know what I'm doing".
I see you're in Sydney. I've been to Sydney once and absolutely loved it...I was just chatting with colleagues the other day (who were with me in Sydney) and we agreed that it's the best city we've been to and would love to live there.
A few more things about the Brasilia:
- standard 58mm tamper fits well, I have a regbarber, it's a nice tight fit - 20 minutes of warming up and it's ready to go...I only use one flush of water just prior to grinding - the rancilio blind filter fits the PF, I do a water flush every few shots to clean the group (PF loosely attached and you do a pf wiggle) - 2 hole steam tip is powerful but not great for microfoam/art

I have also just got a 2ndhavd Lady. A beauty in red! But... She has an about 10 cm "silencer" on the stem tip, keeping the milk away from th small hole (Why??), and of course I removed it. But the "silencer" part was screwed onto the steam nozzle, and now the milk is sticking to the thread. I bought a new steam nozzle (with 2 holes as I could not get a 1-hole) but it didnīt fit. I guess the thread was another kind. Btu where can I get one that fits?
