My Lucca arrived today as planned...unfortunately for me it is now on the East coast, while I am on the west coast...I'll have to agonize over it until I arrive home Friday morning.

I've had mine since May, and I am still thrilled every morning when I get to make us great espresso!
Good luck and enjoy...

No matter how I try to seat it, it wobbles around as the side rails are not in contact with the length of the removable tray when fully inserted. I am having a hard time seeing exactly what is hitting, but it seems like the plug or the beveled area around the plug is resting on the bottom of the chassis as it wobbles pretty freely about the center point.

Is this normal, am I just installing it incorrectly, or is my tray not quite right?

Do most/all of the M58's have wobbly drip trays like the one shown in this video (i.e., "is this normal"?) or is this unusual?

Hi Josh (and anyone else that is interested),

Sorry if this question was not clearly spoken to before. This is definitely not the expectation we have for the machine, and the rare occasions it has happened have been from little tweaks in shipping (which our tech department has been able to coach through remedying). It seems like the previously posted solution of applying some adhesive rubber feet is also helpful for keeping the drip tray secure. But our techs also have been discussing future solutions with Quick Mill. A very small percentage of M58 owners post on the forums, so definitely contact the Clive team if you ever want to hear more data about the history of these machines.

Thanks!

My drip tray is like that. I don't even notice it anymore. The chassis will flex some, so if the machine seems like it is a bit askew on your counter give it a week or so. Mine flattened out and is rock solid.

Great pressure - good for washing the car etc. Full blast is too much out of a garden hose for most "garden hose tasks".



Hello. I was wondering how your water was in ft COLLINS. I am getting a lucca in denver and I have not tested the water yet. Did you need a softener ?

After months of researching I've come to the determination that the Lucca M58 is the machine for me and I put in my order last week with Ben from Clive Coffee. Now it's just a matter of waiting till they come from Italy... In the meantime does anyone see any reason why I can't get the plumbing started so that when it arrives it saves me a bit of time and if you have any tips that haven't been posted about plumbing I'd appreciate any input. Thanks and I'll post pics as soon as it arrives!




I'm in denver aLso... how did you end up treating the water with the plumbed in m58? Softner?
