    And design decisions, component choices and location, drain taps on boilers, cup height under grouphead, capacity of drip tray etc. I agree on whether we can taste a difference between machines (most of us are not supertasters) but on high end machines there are other factors which we don't take into account until we're aware of them. It's why DaveC reviews are different to most.

    Treated myself again!!!! God I'm bloody good to myself
    As I was a lucky bugger and won a quality tamper I had to buy the Emc tamper stAtion to go with it. Sure it will make my coffee taste better 🤔

    Tally ho!
    Ha, I'm struggling with exactly the same dilemma. The Profitec 500 vs. the Mechanica IV profi. It'll be my first HX machine, so lot's of research has gone into it (and quite a bit of indecision, too.) The ECM machines look beautiful and I like the lever vs. the knobs personally.

    What machine do you have at the minute?
    Not sure if you have considered volumetric but it is a really fantastic feature to have, really helps keep your shots consistent, when you get over the honeymoon period with experimenting etc it's really super for using day to day. Personally for me it was a feature my final machine choice had to have and I'm very glad of it now.

    Looks great mate - please let us know how you get on with it? Have been considering.

    Been using a tamping mat and has been fine though kind of don't like pressing bottom of basket against mat - especially as there's sometimes grind fines on there.
