    It doesn’t make the machine any better or worse at making espresso - the only thing it does is dump water into the drip tray from the Over Pressure Valve (OPV), that would otherwise and previously have been returned to the water tank. It means that otherwise good and usable fresh water is being wasted / dumped into the drip tray - rather than being put back into the tank for re-use - so you may get a fuller drip tray and empty water tank sooner, but that’s it. It would probably cost less than £5 for sufficient silicone tubing to correct this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yeah, this years crop is the first one where I’ve found such big blueberry notes. I think this years crop is the second best one after that very first one 5 or 6 years ago.

    Understanding was the teething problem. 1. They can't make a case like QM and Lelit who can press em out real nice out from thin steel (0.4-0.5mm), but they can and do use 2.0-2.3mm steel in the case apart from the drip tray cover itself (to give it spring for grip). The cases are simple for smaller hand built production runs and your not paying for a very flashy finish and a basic exterior. If you want to put accessories/replacement handles on you can. 2. It's a machine that's good on the inside and puts price/performance top of the agenda. It's very cheap for what you get. it's also all stainless steel, no painted mild steel frame. 3. It has an unusual shape, which once you use it for a few weeks, totally makes sense. 4. It has a solenoid group, which is fantastic from a maintenance backflushing with cleaner, descaling perspective. Marketing talks about preinfusion chambers in the Lever operated E61 group, but this only helps very slightly with rotary pumped machines. It's not necessary on the Minima with it's pump characteristics 5. It takes some selling and some explaining and competes strongly/exceedes the performance of more expensive machines. 6. It has a Vibration pump, some people like rotary pumps...in the end it makes little difference in the domestic environment Retailers need to get their head around the machine and customers who want performance at a great price, over looks are the ideal buyers. Plus those who just want a simpler experience. My V is off the counter for 4 yearly maintenance (must get round to it), but I have been using the only the Minima for months now...It does produce a very good shot indeed.

    ... well that is why I am asking... to see if any William owners are here? Or to see if anyone has seen both units side by side in one of the retail stores. Wow. Only just joined. While you probably intend to be helpful and the first part of your replay was not unhelpful, the second part of your reply... well just read it again. If you think that is okay, then good luck to you.

    Thanks Beano for your design and testing! Finally I've put My E37S to work and tonight I made and mounted my declumper Made it from a plastic jar. Feels a little stiffer than the thin aluminium you are using. It works fine and the grind is really fluffy. It will be interesting to see what you think about the thicker aluminium. .

    I'm impressed with your A.R.S.E as well and we've never even met...
