New 1 group lever from ACS - Vostok 1 group


Recommended Posts

As there are plenty of lever enthusiasts in this forum - including myself - I thought I'd share this post, from CoffeeTime:

https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/vesuvius/1-group-vostok-dual-boiler-lever-or-is-it-t430.html#p5010

Seems like it's a single group lever, and might even be a dual boiler?

Obviously what I can say is always a side part just because I’m a designer. The machine flex yes, the double spring pressure is 300kg vs 180 of single spring. So mechanically speaking (if we want to s

Talking of STILL WAITING (above), I think we really ought to acknowledge the part that our mentor @Davecuk has played in all of this. His brainchild (if I am right) was first talked about in September

Even more so if it's £1000 cheaper!

 

P.S. Could be wishful thinking of course...

I don’t like – Sticks and Stones, beans that are sour, green…or rancid (horrible). Quakers hide until you roast them, then they scream out at you in the cooling tray, pick em out and flick them in the bin.. Lifes too short for bad coffee!

If this happens at the right price I'm going to have a serious case of upgradeitis!

Rocket Giotto Evoluzione v2, Eureka Zenith 65E, Niche grinder, Pharos grinder with VoodooDaddy mods, Eureka MDL, Torr Goldfinger, Smart Tamp. Various coffee stuff.

I really hoped this would be announced longer after I bought the MaraX 😬 

Dave if you make me spend even more after the Niche and the MaraX I'm going to be single really quickly...! 

One of the reasons I bought my machine. Should the worse happens, I could always say something along the lines of “It didn’t work out, and Elizabeth moved in”. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

OK, this is interesting.

With the Vesuvius on the bench, the only Machines that still tempt me is the idea of going Spring Lever (Londinium basically) for the shot quality:simplicity ratio , or maybe looking at flow profiling (even though I can and do, prepare long bloom shots on the V. Amongst many other pointless tricks) 

The Niche is a good enough grinder for me in so many ways, though a single dosing affordable big flat would defo raise an interest.

 

An ACS 1 group spring lever, at the right price is a proper spanner in the works here 🤣

The group heater/s giving a total warmup time of 15 minutes is (to me) very desirable. I have a Brugnetti Aurora lever machine with a PID'd heater blanket on its group and it totally changes the useability of a big lever machine.

I haven't tried the famed La San Marco lever group yet but all readings indicate that it is a phenomenal thing.

Also a real plus would be the overall quality and thought put into another ACS machine, if the Vesuvius is anything to go by.

I am really looking forward to hearing more about this machine!

Same here, I am excited to see the final machine. Hopefully, we will not have to wait too long!

I have been asked about the pump ACS want to use and whether it's OK. It's a nice quiet 24 volt rotary unit good to 4 bar. So variable preinfusion should be on the cards and perhaps even profiled preinfusion. Along with all the other good stuff of course.

After thinking 3 years of Bosco, this is now under the ice lurking... but it has the Rocket-effect: who wants real thing from Napoli called some russian term? I'd sure stamp some plate "Campi Flegrei" or some feminine, like  "Sofia Pozzuolese" ....no no, lets' get it just straight and clear. Let's call it Somma 😉

Very good! At first I was like.... Is this a reference to Aldous Huxley Brave New World? And then the penny dropped! 👍- I’ll let people do their homework, so no spoilers.

Genius.
