    Brewing Nicely
  1. I'm in central London. I am interested in the machine but not the grinder only though as I have a grinder I'm happy with. I am slightly conflicted due to the size increase etc. But equally very tempted. I could possibly come this weekend to have a look, if that is ok?
  2. How temperature stable is it? It doesn't have PID I think? At the moment I have a Rancilio Silvia with "the daring dutch" PID which is working very well. But at the same time it's tiny, and the temperature seems to cart a bit through the shot, and steaming isn't all that exciting. Basically to stop rambling - what differences would I expect?
  3. Provided that sais what I think, that it does fit vst baskets, I take it at asking price.
  4. Have to say I was a bit shocked by the amount of interest it had! Sent it to Korea in the end... eBay Global shipping is crazy. Appreciate your honesty @DavecUK It was actually a nice machine in my view, but I do kinda prefer a rancilio with PID in several ways for my modest morning coffee.
  5. Credit where credit is due, I also had email correspondence and Jan was helpful and never took more than 36h to reply. The MeCoffee has also transformed the Silvia to something that is able to make great decent espresso and steam milk with very little fuss. Of course I have only had it a month or so, and it might still break. So far though nothing but praise for it.
  6. After about a week of use I have to say that I am incredibly impressed. The temperature control is of course a game changer (who knew just how annoying temp surfing really was). The unexpected hero though is the dimming function of the pump.
  7. So slightly scared I bought one, and I have to say Jan responded quickly and shipped the next day. Installation was easy and took about an hour for all steps. One day in its working really well and has dramatically improved my coffee (especially my girlfriend's coffee).. hopefully it will stay that way.
  8. I bought one of the new batch and we shall see how it goes...
  9. A friend of mine needs a real coffee maker, would you accept £100?
  10. Is this still available? I'm keen at asking price of £250 for the heavenly. Sorry - missed above two posts somehow
  11. Do you know year of manufacture? Looks sweet

    Thanks for that idea, if I can't work this out I will register and put a post there as well! Now that you say it that seems like the obvious next step.. now on to find a 49mm double basket in London on a Sunday.
