Hey everyone,

I am thinking of pulling the trigger on the cc1/vario combo over at seattlecoffeegear. It comes with a free bottomless portafilter this weekend with one of their daily email deals, so it really seems to be a great deal for $1k...950 after the $50 off coupon they offer as well.

Before I do, I have heard/seen rumors around the net on "new" Crossland models that might be coming out....eventually? For instance:

2010 Expo apparently?

I am torn between grabbing the deal from SCG and (undoubtedly) having the new machine come out the day I get past my return window and waiting until...well who knows?

Just wondering if anyone knows anything google doesn't...

Thanks!!

It seems that no matter what we do, the next, the bigger, the better will always come out ..... next week.

There is no perfect time to get into anything. I really don't know very much at all about the NEW machine from Bill but the CC1 is a solid performing unit.

Bill puts a lot of effort into whatever he does but the heating system on that prototype scares me. I would need to watch and see a while after that comes out  to see how it would turn out. He is not the first one to use a coil of copper, Breville calls theirs a Thermocoil (lots of imiganiation there huh?) I am very unimpressed with how they have used it.

YMMV!

What ever happened to the Crossland machine that was mentioned in this thread in 2010?

Even though a proto debuted in 2010, given the lack of current buzz the new Crossland is probably many months away from production.  And, judging by its features and sophistication will almost certainly be priced well out of your range.  

If you want to know when the new machine will come out and how it will be priced, your best bet is to call a big Crossland retailer like SCW and/or Chris and see if they've heard anything -- or to call (or write) Bill Crossland himself.  Crossland is a straight shooter, and is pretty good about answering those sorts of questions.

Pressure profiling capability had been around since the Dawn of Time with lever machines.

Why not just get a Cremina 67.  Tried and true technology will always rule over whiz bang gizmos made of plastic and circuit boards.

But if you must have such things the CC1 is better now than waiting around for vaporware.
