We can say after 2 years it's the most rock solid and precise espresso machine we ever had.
General settings :
1 second pre infusion
2 seconds hold
260 units water (for a double shot - naked porta filter)
91 degrees PID
In 2 years we installed the same machine at Beanoteca, Livingstone, The Village, Fanny's en De Superette. And everybody happy so far.
Maybe it's lacking the possibilities of the Strada, but with 8 different Barista's rocking 'the boat', i prefer this one for sure.
What did we change?
We have a GS3 steam tip on the left.
A triple Vortex knife tip on the right.
The newest LM shower screens.
and now we want the new soft ware on it (easier to copy recipes).
Thanks Piero Bambi.
