Posted Thu Jul 4, 2013, 4:47am Subject: First/Initial shot on NS Musica
Last night I got my NS Musica Lux in the house. Since it was quite late when I took it out of the box I didn't want to stress with the first shot. Anything I should think of with regards to the first shot on this machine or in general? Potential questions are: - How long should it warm up for, 30 minutes it seems like? - Cold flushing? - Should I run a litre or two of water through the machine?
The double portafilter seems to be a bit loose in the filterholder, but it comes with a spring I probably should install?
When I get to know my machine better and pull consistent shots I will revert with my experience. This should hopefully be an improvement from my Gaggia Classic;)

Yes you'll need a cooling flush for the first shot. Only if you've just pulled one within five minutes can you skip it- understand that's a general rule of thumb to follow while you get to know your machine. Congrats on your new Musica!
