Cha-ching!!!

Voodoo - has it shipped yet?  LOL

;-)

PS - obviously Breville changed the strategy slightly and let SCG be the first retail distributor.  Not surprising, different comms from different people at big corporations is common.

SCG's Spec Sheet lists this as the 220V 2200W rest of the world machine.  Presumably that's wrong, but -- in an abundance of caution -- call and check before clicking the Add to Cart button.

SCG listed below the steam boiler temp range has been increased, that's a pretty high steam temp/bar pressure level ?  

Additional Upgrades: You are now able to adjust the steam boiler temperature at a range of 265F 285F.

It's that way on the Oracle and I found it really helps to go to the higher temperature.  I can use the auto feature or do it manually (which I prefer).

Be careful buying from Canada.  They sucker you in with lower price, but neglect to tell you about customs duty, and delays as it clears customs.  But I see you live in NJ, so you may be planning to hop across the border?

Perhaps not the best word choice, but a righteous "Head's up!"

(They) neglect to tell you about customs duty, and delays as it clears customs.

Never happened to me with stuff from idrinkcoffee, even purchases worth more than $200 total.  Also, never happened with my other Canadian purchases, even larger, bigger-ticket items.  Could have been luck.

It also could have been the nature of the contraband purchases; there are a lot of exclusions in NAFTA. I'm not sure whether or not duties are imposed on coffee equipment.    

At least ask Slawa (who owns idrinkcoffee) what's what before ordering.  He'll know.

But I see you live in NJ, so you may be planning to hop across the border?

One way of eliminating the risk of delay, but driving from anywhere in Jersey to Milton (Ontario) would cost more in gas than it would save in duty.

I just got the BES920XL (in red!).  The bottomless portafilter for the BES900XL does not work with the new machine.  Does anyone know where I can get one for the 920?

On the handle, right next the the filter housing, the new one has a cutout to allow the filter to go up into the machine just a bit.  It could probably be ground down in the old portafilter, but I don't have a grinder.

Congrats on the 920!  I personally would love to hear your thoughts, especially from one that owns the 900 also!  (I am assuming since you have a bottomless for the 900 you own that machine to - but you did not say to verify that - do you own the 900?).

I have one eye on the 920, I never got the 900 for various reasons, and wondering how owners of both stack them up.
