Londinium Compact.

I think the reasoning behind small levers is for minimal usage. For 1-4 espresso a day who needs a big prosumer machine? That is why folks love their LPs, Creminas, Strietmans. It is possible to manage their idiosyncrasies for the small volume of shots and make excellent coffee. I think it would be wonderful for someone to make a

Londinium Compact.

I would personally consider output volume as one of the important factors when deciding. Currently using a Pavoni and I'm pretty sure I would like bigger output from my next machine. From what I understood the Vectis would not help me much in that area. This also comes down to coffee preferences, I mostly enjoy the lighter end of the

Londinium Compact.

so is this aimed at the more traditional drinker then? till we get real world data, its all speculation- heat up times, temp stability, profile etc. im sure in good time we will see that presented. the little lever 'cant' be as good as the big lever or it would negate the point of the big lever. i

La Marzocco Linea Mini User Experience

(Not sure if this should be in a separate thread?) I've just noticed the "New Zealand price" for a new Linea Mini has gone up quite a bit from NZD$6,649 to $7,935 ($1,286 increase) .

Lelit Bianca v2 for $2200 or Breville Dual Boiler for $1700. Please help me choose

I disagree with Henry totally, but I have used and own a Bianca. They are both dual boilers. The Bianca is a much better build quality than the Breville to the extent that Breville have just bought out Lelit to try and improve their reputation. Don't take my word for it do a bit more digging around. The Breville is

Breville Dual Boiler Steam Boiler Leak

Post number two/deux, further thoughts on the three beeps, the theory about descale/water-hardness condition . . . First off, this will work for your BES920XL Dual Boiler as it has the drains, where as the 900 series doesn't have the drain (I believe, someone can correct this if wrong). I remember reading on another forum a
