Detailed Commentary

I bought my S1 after some extensive research and advice from some of the best in the business. I have no experience with espresso and I was intimidated by all of the science behind the art of coffee. I either underestimated my abilities, or bought the best machine available, because I am pulling the most awesome espresso shots right in my own kitchen.

I wanted a machine that could handle a house full of guests and not let me down. I settled on this double boiler unit for its quick recovery times. I received my machine and grinder just in time for my big superbowl party and brought in a couple of gals from a local barista to coffee bar tend. No disrespect to Peyton Manning, but the S1 was definately voted the SuperBowl MVP at my party. It handled my crowd of 60 without a whimper. I am very impressed with this machine and received lots of compliments on the coffee bar.

It seems my daily needs will create no problem for this beast. I can froth milk like a pro and with a good roast, can match or even outperform our local coffee shops.

My thanks to the great folks at Chris' Coffee for all of thier help.

Buying Experience

Awesome people to work with at Chris' Coffee
