Sage DB to VBM Junior DB

Recommended Posts

I’m considering changing from a Sage DB to VMB Junior dual boiler, I’m happy with the Sage but it’s a few years old now and I had a few problems with my all in one Sage as it got older, I’m also getting a new kitchen and I think the VBM is quite a striking design. But I’m not too sure what the benefits and negatives are of moving, would this be an upgrade? Thanks in advance.

What grinder are you using?

Never owned either, but I don’t think the difference will be as pronounced as upgrading a grinder (assuming there’s a room for an upgrade).

In terms of taste and predictability, controllability its a downgrade imo

Sage has controllable pre-infusion and some form of heated brew head

Vbm has exposed e61 which is lovely though usual caveats apply - unpredictable heat loss depending on environment.
