John or anyone from the Decent Espresso team,

I know you've stated in your videos that Decent machines are typically upgradable. I'm looking at picking up a DE1XL, but torn about the increase capabilities of the DE1XXL. If I decide in the future that I do indeed want the extra steam capabilities of the XXL could I possible buy the necessary parts from you and do the upgrade myself?

Second, any word yet what the differences are going to be between v1.43 machines and v1.5(next) ? I saw a part in the group head is changing, but nothing else. Is it too early to know the diff list between the revisions?

The XL/XXL upgrade is a big one, lots of things change, and it's dangerous to do if you're not an engineer (high voltage), so no, it's not field-upgradable. Sorry!

As to v1.5, we're working on a "next gen" machine for 2 to 3 years from now, but it'll be quite a bit more expensive. Otherwise, we're on v1.4x for at least 2 years, as we've ordered parts for that now. Due to COVID, innovation takes a back burner to getting parts in.

We take a break from the maintenance series and look deeper into the world of steaming and milk drinks with Paul Chan and Dennis Hew. We will go through a few details of what defines certain drinks in a region and how to steam different milk types like Oat, Almond and Soy as well.

As usual you can join and ask questions or even join in on camera!

Paul will be the student this week as he dusts off his jugs to hone his milk based drinks with guidance from Dennis.
