GOD shots, one after the other, without fail. Continuous steam and water on tap, 24x7. Get one.
Positive Product Points
Very easy to setup -- connect water line and plug in Very quiet, internals are insulated and protected NO expensive chrome e61 brew head to polish, nor shiny chassis to rub. Four hole tip produces excellent microfoam
Negative Product Points
Stock steam arm a little too short, a longer one is available at low cost.
I lusted for this machine for three years! After years of using Gaggias, Saeco (semi) machines, Silvias, stock and with my 'pid' system installed.
My wife always was asking for milk drinks, but with the above machines that is NOT a fun task, even with my Astra I had for a brief time, the milk part was easy, but being an HX, the shots were inconsistent, to say the least. And I felt NO need to learn the onerous "flush" ritual.
I went back to a 'pid' silvia. Shots were consistent but then I was back to the single boiler dilemma.
A brewtus II was here for a week or 2 getting a mod, and it was very easy to use, but the quality of the machine was NOT reassuring, and a pressurestat on the steam boiler? Why?
Superb as expected, from Chris and his dedicated staff.
