Also, after a couple shots the temperature will be temporarily too high and you'll need to manage that (with a cool portafilter, a wet rag, or 5-7min rest). I'll never give the Cremina up, but it's not always my pick for making many drinks back to back.
Another strategy would be to have a light roast available that will tolerate higher temperatures.

What I WOULD do for a good cup of coffee!
