  1. Fair one, it's been pretty good, but I tend to only steam a small amount for one flat white, so the combination of commercial tip and living at 2000m means it's perhaps a bit too good and tricky to handle! I think it was up to temp in 2 or 3 seconds this morning! I was thinking of trying a La Marzocco slow flow tip to see if it was any better!
  2. Anyone have any idea where I could get my hands on (or better still have a spare!) an adapter to fit a La Marzocco steam tip to a Nuova Simonelli Musica, would need to be a male to male adapter like this one: http://clean-machine.com.au/Adaptor-for-Tip-to-suit-NS.html Can't find one anywhere, only a website in Denmark which doesn't ship to the UK...
  3. Could someone possibly PM me the discount code, the one I have must be a bit old and out of date? Thanks!
  4. Unless you don't actually need to spend any money, you just need a lot of free stickers from other customers. Or it's £42 :-)
  5. +1, they are great, only downside is you’ll want to buy all the other sizes as well!
  6. That's what I did, piece of metal and a coffee hessian sack, it was free and ideal :-)
  7. There is a way to switch off the delay, I can't remember how to do it, but I switched mine off somehow...
  8. Barista Magazine has an app, very similar to caffeine but for the US - I came across it when espressoparts put a copy in with an order.

  10. Do these include saucers - I'm interested in a couple but they only cost £15 new with a saucer...?
  11. Looks to be missing the top adjustment ring, not sure how much they are to replace but not the cheapest I think...
  12. The old Oscar was plasticy, but I thought the newer one was a bit more sturdy? The Nuova Simonelli Musica is available for £1050, mine has run perfectly since since I've had it. I find the volumetrics a big plus, when properly calibrated with a consistent on demand grinder, it takes a lot of the steps out of the process!
  13. There are loads on ebay from UK sellers... That's where mine came from, what about http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/262883484435
  14. Indeed, it's 94c, although presumably that only affects anything once it leaves the machine (given the machine itself is pressurised)? Everything certainly sounds high pressure, pressure relief after shots is loud... The only way to reduce the machine temp would be the pressurestat, but it's a campini one, like this: It doesn't look like it should be tinkered with, anyone have any experience of altering these?
  15. I'm now based at altitude (1850m/6500ft) and have immediately noticed my Nuova Simonelli Musica doesn't operate quite as it used to! A couple of things in particular: - uneven extraction: a large divot appears in each puck/gushes through this point. - powerful steaming: the steaming is wild, pretty difficult to control, so my milk has been pretty poor. I'm guessing this may be related to the boiling point being lower/pressure changes, but I'm not quite sure, and wouldn't know what variables are change! My initial thoughts are to lower the boiler pressure, but I've not done this before, and don't fully understand the consequences of doing so - boiler pressure is currently sat at 1.5 bar. Thoughts welcome!
