What beans did you use? What is you brew temp set at? How many bar at the group during the pull? Have you used the steam to froth milk? If so what were the results?

Wow, that's alot of chrome!  Reminds me of a 59 Cadillac Eldorado I used to own.

Congratulations on your fabulous new machine.  Enjoy!

That looks great! I don't really see much of a mess either. I've never used my bottomless pf without super-fine mists of coffee spraying somewhere.

Please tell me that there's a bit of a mess somewhere that I'm not seeing. :)

That shot was pretty decent but the grind was too fine.  The pull took about 50 seconds.  There was a little mess from follow up shots...  The beauty of working with my 500$ Breville for the past couple of years (think block heating element) is that I got pretty good with that so this is unbelievably easy in comparison.  I was having anxiety about not spending a little more for the Alex duetto 3 but after trying it out, this machine really is a better fit for me.
