S1 mini vs Dream T

This may be a silly, but. Other than more electronic controls on the Dream (T and std) there is no difference that I can see in reliability between the two machines. To adjust the temp on either machine the control board has to be accessed, so the additional electronics control the other functions o...

Re: Users/owners feedback

I've been follwoing your travails with your machine and am glad it is finally functional. So far everything I've heard confirms a leaning toward La Spaz.

Users/owners feedback

I'm assuming that since there are few new posts in any of the forums that either everybody that owns a La Spaziale machine is absolutely happy with their choice or have gotten rid of a lousy machine. Since I'm contemplating a Dream T buy this summer some feedback would really be appreciated. Thank y...

53 mm group vs 58 mm

I am planning upgrading from my current 920 to either Lucca 53 or mini, I think. My big question is what are the major stumbling blocks to adjusting technique to the 53 mm from the 58 mm, if any?

53 mm group

I'm looking at the Mini VII as the cure for my upgrade illness. I have been looking ever since I became convinced that my current machine was not going to be my end all be all espresso provider.
