  1. Placed my order but forgot to use the code! Next time
  2. Yea, Midlands based. Worcestershire way. Never had much of an issue with scale in kettles, but just want to ensure I am feeding the machine the best she can get... I will order one of the aquarium/ppm paper testers this evening to be sure on the ppm. There seems to be a lot of information on filters out there but hard to navigate it all and figure out what is the best option for my situation. Ie I have read great things about the bestmax premium filters but have read that the added magnesium can cause issue. Happy to put the money on the table for a RO filter, but th
  3. According to the water table (not actually measured it myself) I am in a soft water area at 60ppm.
  4. Ok, so does anyone have any input on which in line filter system I should go for? Seems like a bwt bestmax system would fit the bill but want to ensure I am treating the machine the best i can from day 1... if that means going the RO/osmio HT route then so be it!
  5. Afraid not! I think I just missed out on batch 1 by one or two places I think it shall be worth the wait though... just breaking the news to the better half that she has lost a bit more worktop space... eye brows were raised.. I need to think of a way to justify the second group head now
  6. Does not look far from completion! May go without saying but whom ever ordered the 21st unit will now be in batch #2
  7. Colour? Do you mean the side panels? I got the standard chrome and black
  8. @Jony and his machine may have had a hand to play in this.
  9. So, I unfortunately am no longer in the family I regret to say I have cancelled my order.... I have however ordered a 2 group vostok, so I shall still be keeping a close eye on this thread for tips and advice. the reasoning for me changing was purely cosmetic and the fact I was going to plumb in the machine either way. The single group (if I am being honest) would have been preferred but interested to see how I get on with 2 groups and how I get on with it!
  10. Great, thank you. So no pump needed unless I have poor flow after the filter is installed. That is a shame regarding the 2 bar max pre infusion... I think I am going to still go with the 2 group vostok though. Not entirely sure on the implications of this and if I will ever need to adjust above 2 bar... I feel very fortunate having the dilemma between two very good machines! The 2 group, although will not be used to its max potential in my home, is just too pretty to pass up - I shall just have to invite some people over for coffee!
  11. Morning all, so I have decided to buy either a vesuvius evo leva or a vostok 2 group. I know with the evo I will not need a pump as it has one built in and even if I do plump it in it pulls the water from the tank. Which ever I decide on I will like to treat it well and get an in-line filter. filter system I am trying to decide between the osmio ht+ or a bestmax, does the osmio offer that much more over more traditional filters? I may end up routing the water to a tap for drinking water, but my main focus here is the coffee machine. Pump (edit: is this needed?) A
  12. So when I placed my order last month I also ordered the black side and back panels. So i shall have the chrome front/top/drip tray with black sides for mine. This is the image of the vesuvius in such a configuration.
  13. So, I think the big one here is that it exists and we can buy it obviously a clear positive, is the vostok 1 group still planned to be released at all or is the vesuvius leva it's full time replacement?
  14. Out of interest, what advantage does the vesuvius leva have over the vostok 1 group, other than the addition of the water tank? Sorry, playing devils advocate slightly here.
