Hi john, that is very simple the LR! Why? Because you can just do anything with it, light or dark roasts, flat 6 bar shots something that very few levers are capable of, change the temperature using the pressure transducer.
I have had the original LR and although an excellent machine this is just the cream of the crop, I would highly recommend any first generation owners of an LR to do the upgrade.
I found the original L1 although a very good machine, just didn't cut the mustard with light roasts but still enjoy using both of them.
