  1. Hi all. Just purchased a Cherub from DripDrop on the forum, paired with a Sage Smart Grinder I've owned for a long time. It's been ages since I have owned an espresso machine, having dialed the grinder in for aeropress/V60 for the last couple of years at least. I used to own a Gaggia Classic and could never get consistency in milk or espresso, so here's hoping there's some improvement! A few really basic questions: * I'm looking at getting hold of some descaler and cleaner. Back when I owned the Classic it seemed Puly Baby was the descaler of choice - still the case? How about cleaner? * Is there a "beginner method" for getting consistent coffee/milk from the Fracino HX machines? Time to allow warm-up, pre-flush, etc.? * Tips on how to dial in my grinder for the machine? * Anything to watch out for maintenance-wise that I might not have thought of? * We have a Brita tap filter - will this be sufficient or should I consider further filtration? I see that Fracino sell a filter unit, that might fit in the tank (I think this is a 2013/2014 model) - worth it? They seem pretty expensive... Thanks in advance!
