Re: S1 Dream machine Now taking pre-orders

I just heard from Mary, she noted that they are supposed to get the software update on Monday from Italy so my Dream T won't be shipping until next week. This was over email so I don't know if the update is just for the 15 Amp error my unit was getting, or the pre-infusion issue others have mentione...

Re: Vario W or Mazer Mini E or something else?

Ugh, you guys are a bad influence on me! I haven't even received my machine and grinder and I already want to upgrade! :shock: I talked to Mary and can change my grinder order since nothing has been shipped. I am now debating between the Mazzer Mini E and the Super Jolly E. Is the difference between...

Re: S1 Dream machine Now taking pre-orders

I talked to Mary to see if mine had shipped so that I can change my grinder order and she said it hadn't shipped due to an error code. I ordered pre-infusion too but when I talked to her she said the error was due to to it being adjusted to run on 15 amp and they need to get an answer from Italy to ...

Re: Vario W or Mazer Mini E or something else?

As to other accessories, may I recommend the Espro tamper? It'll remove a variable from your early espresso journey by providing a consistent tamp - not to mention it is one very well machined tamper and fits the portafilter flawlessly. Good knock box, and you're ready to rock. If milk drinks, othe...

Re: Vario W or Mazer Mini E or something else?

I read more posts here, at CG, and at HB. I considered skipping the "entry level" grinder and getting one of the large grinders but then I realized I was probably over doing it. This is my first espresso machine and grinder and, while I want to invest in quality equipment to avoid wanting to upgrade...

Re: Vario W or Mazer Mini E or something else?

And I should also add that my question excludes the Pharos since I'm not devoted enought to see that as a daily use grinder. I am still very new to this and using a manual grinder each morning before I'm really awake doesn't seem realistic for me.

Re: Vario W or Mazer Mini E or something else?

Endo, thanks for your input! I've been reading the forums and some of your posts keep me going back and forth between a Mazzer and the Vario. On the one hand you seem to recommend the Vario for the convenience in everyday use but it also seems like an inconvenience considering the many problems you'...

Re: Vario W or Mazer Mini E or something else?

MDL - thank you for your advice! This is kinda what I'm starting to realize, the more I read about the Vario the more I'm wondering if the problems still persist. I'll start reading up on the Super Jolly vs the Mini E.

Vario W or Mazer Mini E or something else?

I understand this isn't really a new question and have read various posts about both grinders but I'm new and would like more guidance. I'm a total beginner and have just placed a pre-order for the S1 Dream T. I want a grinder that gives me consistency so that I can control as many variables as poss...

Re: S1 Dream machine Now taking pre-orders

I placed my order about an hour ago for the S1 Dream T along with a Vario W grinder :bounce: . I was surprised to hear I was the first pre-order. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I get my order just before Thanksgiving but trying not to expect it since it may take a little longer. Mary said they ...
