Re: Living The Dream

Some interesting differences in the temperature settings as set by CCS. Mine was set to 201F/248F. I bumped up the steam temp to 253 but so far have left the group boiler temp the same.

Re: Living The Dream

You're right, that's the problem. It definitely should be fixed, the current behavior is very non-intuitive.

Re: Living The Dream

Dream T came yesterday. I set it up with the timer, but it didn't turn on this morning, something I need to still look into. So far, so good other than that. It's going to take some time to get used to it, experimenting and all, but out of the box I've been impressed so far.

Re: Setting up my new Dream T

Eric, I believe the 15/20 amp switch is inside the machine.

Edit: I was thinking of the older Vivaldi model.

Re: S1 Dream machine Now taking pre-orders

Does the steam knob pivot or does it just turn to release steam? If you look at the pictures on the Chris website, you'll see both machines now use a steam knob. It seems most people prefer to be able to adust the force of the steam. For many not used to commerical steam power, it can be just too m...

Re: S1 Dream machine Now taking pre-orders

Mine has shipped as well, but being in south-east Alaska (i.e. Seattle), it's going to take awhile to get to here. Maybe next weekend I'll be pulling shots with my new Dream T since UPS is showing a predicted delivery of next Friday.

Re: S1 Dream machine Now taking pre-orders

Still waiting here, no word on whether mine shipped, but if it's first-in first-out then mine will ship later.

Re: S1 Dream machine Now taking pre-orders

I ordered the pre-infusion chamber also, no doubt contributing to the delay. At first I was hoping to be experimenting with my new machine as early as this weekend. Now, I'm hoping by next weekend! I'm still far more interested in them getting it right than fast.

Re: S1 Dream machine Now taking pre-orders

No, but I can dream about living the Dream! I just got off the phone with Mary at Chris' Coffee. They wanted to fuss with the machines a little longer yesterday and this morning, so they've just packed them up for shipment this afternoon. I'm two days away in Illinois by UPS ground so I should see ...

Re: S1 Dream machine Now taking pre-orders

There is an updated manual for the Dream on Chris' site. Several new items added including a section about creating User Profiles. And, a few words on the 'MAT' option: "The MAT option has not been enabled yet on the S1 Dream and is a feature that will be available in the near future. The MAT syste...

Re: S1 Dream machine Now taking pre-orders

I guess it could be a considered a "Pulse" button if you push it 2x fast. However, it's really intended for continuous flow; i.e water flows from the group from the time you press the button once until you press it again. I think the assumed use is for cleaning but like all the other features is li...

Re: S1 Dream machine Now taking pre-orders

Has anyone that pre-ordered a Dream machine received a committed ship date yet? Yes, just ordered one (Dream T) from George, was quoted a ship date of Monday, Dec 03. I vastly prefer the look of the Mini, and called to order same but after a long talk with George changed to the Dream. Price is the ...
