Just looking at the PCB and I'm trying to work out if that's a "sim-card" or "memory-card" holder or if it's a "wi-fi" module.....hard to tell from the gallery picture (low quality when enlarged).....interesting though 😎

EDIT :- too many pins on the "chip" to be a memory/sim card holder...it might be a BT/Wifi module or neither (possibly a uPC)

@Marocchino Is it actually available yet?

On FB, they said they would start building 5 machines in February with pre-orders starting after those 5 have been built and tested.

If their timeline holds (& it’s always a big “if”), it should be available fairly soon. 

They also say price: $800 (which after shipping and customs should still be less than £1000)

They could be onto a winner at that price. Certainly makes some stiff competition for the Londinium Compact (Vectis) and Pavoni..

If it’s well built, it could even gobble up Cremina market share (added functionality for less $$$)

What is the steaming like on the Cremina? It looks like the steaming on this is much the same as the Pavoni - so limited? 

EDIT: when I say much the same, I mean the principle of a small, direct fill, boiler. 

I am not sure if we know what steaming capability the Vectis will have, but surely if someone can bring a better 'steam game' to one of these machines at this price point it will open up a much wider market?

Cremina is fantastic at steaming!
