  1. @grumpydaddy, thank you, this is all helpful in my decision.
  2. Good to hear the taste results. (The grinder is also in the air as I work through this decision.) Thank you.
  3. I have a Kinu grinder. I read the link you provided, and thank you for that relevant post. I didn’t see the results of the side by side testing, or did I miss it in my haste? I’ll look again.
  4. Medium to medium dark is my roast choice, so far. What adjustment for preinfusion is tolerated on the Londinium 1, or to what extent could I preinfuse on the L1 as compared to the LR? I would not want to find I had restricted myself, and then needed to upgrade in a year or two, should I then decide I wanted to use a different roast level. (I have preinfused with the Pavoni, using medium dark roast, and like the result.) Difficult to predict my taste in the future of my espresso making, and therefore difficult to suggest, I suppose, but I ask anyway. 😁
  5. I think “dark” would be darker than I go. I am in the medium-dark camp, I suppose.
  6. Perhaps I posted my first post to CFUK in the wrong category? I put it under “levers”, thinking it qualified. I will repeat it here, and hope it is not an annoyance to do so. I am new to owning an espresso machine (although I have used the Pavoni with good success). I prefer the more “Italian” style espresso, which seems increasingly difficult to find. I specifically want to avoid future machine upgrades, so my question is, do I go for a used Londinium 1 (I am considering one I saw that was advertised as a “first run Londinium 1”... what exactly does “first run” indicate?) or do I forget the used L1 I saw and instead save up to buy a new Londinium? Thank you for any insight you can provide.
  7. I am new to espresso machines, although I have used the Pavoni (with good success). I prefer the more Italian style espresso, yet I don’t often find a great one to be had in most cafes these days. It is time to make the espressos I like at home (& for our guests, as well). I want to avoid future machine upgrades, so my question is, do I go for a used Londinium 1 (interested in one I saw that is advertised as a “first run Londinium 1”... & what exactly does “first run” indicate?) or do I forget the used, save up & buy a new Londinium? Thank you for any insight or guidance you can provide.
