Firstly hello to you all. I am allowed one coffee a day, thus it must be a good one - thats why I am here :)
I have had a couple of machines but after a hiatus I just bought an older Nuova Simonelli Personal 1 in need of a bit of love. Initially I want to set it up without plumbing it in (kitchen being redone) and I wondered if there are any dangers or drawbacks to just using a gravity-fed reservoir before the new kitchen goes in?
Also I would greatly appreciate any information or experience specific to this model anyone can offer - particularly in respect to cleaning regimens.

One a day?? And with a plumbed in NS to boot!
I already asked something similar to this because I was about to buy an NS Mac 2000V and wanted to do the same thing. I think these machines require the positive water pressure of the main plumbing line to work properly. However, if you get it to work with a gravity feed, please let me know and I'll buy that Mac in a heartbeat.
