We enjoy 2 or 3 milky coffees a day as prt of our retirement. I am at the end of a long journey with various machines and would appreciate advice from users of possible replacement for the Sage dual that has the joy of a buzzing solenoid. Repair is not an option as we are in the middle of Portugal.
saga started with Silvia and Rocky
then NS Oscar x2 both corroded. Mignon was an improvement
decided to splash out on Quick Mill Verona following a good review by DaveC. Also a Compaq k10 which is only just run in after six years. A few months after moving here PID died and no replacement possible.
went back to a Silvia but missed the dual boiler so when Amazon had an offer on Sage moved to this. I am looking for a replacement that is going to last with minor servicing.
Longevity. I will probably last 10-15 years so this time scale
manual operation so that I can play. I don’t want to just push a button.
rotary pump would be nice. Needs to be tank fed
price is not crucial if it meets my needs.
thoughts are Lelit Branca, Protec 600.
comments will be welcomed
