Exciting news for those waiting for their DE1PRO v1.1; they are shipping!
Given how fast previous machines have arrived, some will receive them tomorrow, others on Saturday.

Who's expecting one?

I think only 40 are going out now, but as I understand they should be steadily shipping every week (or two).

What happened to their $800 lower model units?

Not possible to make a high quality espresso machine for $800 so they moved on from the original ZPM concept. They also cut out the $1999 version that wasn't going to be plumb-able. They start at $2499 and are worth every penny

They are going with the Tesla approach. At some point this year, the DE1+ will ship again and that will be their entry level model with a price that may be $2,499.

Hmm I didn't realize that was that ever an option.
