The thermoblock is fed with 200° water from the boiler.
If the latter in #1, that means you cannot steam milk while making espresso, correct? If I steamed milk first would I then have to wait for the water to come back up to temp for my espresso shot? If so is the difference between this and an SBDU that it has shorter wait time. Or am I wrong and there is no wait time? No criticism implied - just seeking to understand.
It is a single, 500ml stainless steel brew boiler with PID temperature control, but it also has programmable pre-infusion which is programmable for length of time, and the "dwell time" between pre-infusion and extraction is also programmable. Extraction time is also programmable. If the steam function works as well as it seemed to at the show (no milk- just steam blast to view when I was there) then I think it is a good step above a SBDU with added PID.
Well, yes there is, a few weeks back, a new member posted that he (she? I don't remember) bought a CC1 as a first machine along with grinder etc. I have not seen a post from them but I think once they get it or get to working it, they likely will post again.

I believe not. It also inspire me to do some mod with the tank. I am planing to extend the tube/hose to an external water tank. It can save me a lot of effort to remove the tank and put it back (especially when there are few obstacles when moving the tank). I am sourcing the suitable pipe/hose to reconnect the inlet/outlet hose, and some ideal size of tank can hide behind this machine. It will be better if I can install a water filter (brita) somewhere too.
