for me, the price is the game changer especially when you are comparing it to similar high end entry level machines. Match this with a Baratza Preciso and for a $1000 bucks you got espresso.

It doesn't take as long as with a SBDU, but you still have to wait for the thermoblock to heat up the water for steaming.

On the other hand, the wait to go from steaming back to brewing would be virtually unnecessary, so compared to a SBDU machine, the time to make multiple beverages would be greatly reduced. The preinfusion function would also go a long way to consistency, again compared to the often-mentioned SBDU machines. After years of using a Silvia and knowing what I know, the CC1 looks very good, particularly comparing their functions to price.

I have the cc1 machine for a month now.  I order online and when i got my shipment.  It was all damaged.  It was mainly shipping problems but this also show the build quailty is not that great.  The cup tray was bend, same with the drip tray cover.  My 3 way valve was also bent at an angle.  So I took it back to get it replace.  My second machine was better. I think my main problem is with the temperature of the machine.  I set my machine to 202 F.  The boiler get up to temp  in a few min and then it will struggle to get to the set temp.  My first run, I got an error code of HH.  Dont really know the cause of it.  I restart the machine and it's fine.  Maybe i ran my shot before my set temp.  But even when i get to 202 the shot come out to be not so hot, not what i wanted.  I'm not sure but maybe i really have to warm the machine up for a long time.  The steam, I have no problem with that, a bit slow but still works great

Hi Bure32, Here are some tips if you haven't gotten it sorted out yet, first get a manual, 2 of the things you mention are covered in it. Email Crossland for one, or I can scan mine for you this weekend if you need.

Basically the HH is saying your temp is at 230 or higher, so as a safety, it is shutting down. Shut down, let it run setup and as the temp starts increasing, press menu to get some water in the boiler, to prime it. This is in the manual, section 1.3.

On the 202 F struggling, here is a tip I've found, after setting a cup mode to a higher temp, I do the preset settings, hit menu when done, then power off, and back on and the higher temp then sticks. I'm not sure if that's in the manual, but it works for me.

The unit should get up to temp pretty fast. For me, getting to 200-205 from ambient 75ish is just a couple of minutes.

I'm hoping to steam some milk the weekend to answer the previous poster requests on this.

The manual is available in PDF format (with a couple of small typos, weirdly every instance of the letters "fi" are missing hehe!) from the link below:

i have the manual. i read it . didnt quite understand. as the screen wasnt even showing that high of the temp. anyways that only happened once

as with the temp....you have to go to setup and set new temp and restart the machine everytime.  that's pretty annoying

Here is a link to the User's Manual on the Crossland Coffee Website.  The manual from Brownbean seems to contain some errors.    If you have questions about using the machine or why it is doing something, please do not hesitate to email me.
