    What brand of espresso machine do you own?

    Thanks for your patience people and apologies for any confusion with the first version of this poll.
    What seemed like a simple exercise quickly turned into a bit of a monster, I now know that once polls have been set up and votes cast you cant change the list without messing up the votes already cast.
    Ive double checked this list, all seems ok, and have included all machine brand names suggested, my apologies if Ive left a manufacturer out.
    Lets hope this effort goes a little more smoothly. ::)

    I just voted.

    Its a super long list, it will be interesting to see how it averages out over a period of time.

    Voted. Thanks for putting the poll up Jon. I dont see any manufacturers left out from what i see.
    Perhaps over time another poll for roasters can be held?

    Thanks Gary, its been an interesting exercise.
    Not sure but Ive a feeling roasters has been done, will do a search.
    Im contemplating grinders for the next one, will make sure I have compiled a complete list of brand names before I start another one. ;)

    Pardon my ignorance Dennis, how does an ECM Veneziano S1 differ from an ECM/Rocket?

    Boiler capacity: 2.5 litre
    Fresh water tank: 2.9 litre
    Voltage: 230 v 50 Hz.
    Other: Rotary pump, pump and boiler pressure gauges
    Watt: 1800 w
    Dimensions:(W x D x H) 390 x 480 x 480mm
    Weight: Approximately 30 kg

    Re: What brand of espresso machine do you own?

    Looking at the list we have, La Nuova, Nuova and Nuova Simonelli, none have yet received any votes, Im wondering if there is duplication here? if so now is the time to rectify it, once there are votes against the names were stuck with them, any thoughts? :-/

    I did mention it in the last thread to drop Nouva. the other two are seperate brands, it might just be safer to change the poll option to blank rather than delete it?

    Thanks BF, must have missed your comment, maybe best to leave sleeping dogs lay rather than risk stuffing the whole thing again, doubt leaving it there will affect the result.

    No surprises on the rocket, vibiemmes and rancilio topping the list... looks like the giottos and silvias are extremely popular amongst CS-ers. One that suprises me... Izzo?

    I started the thread and set the poll up over 4 years ago, seems the poll has been lost in the miasma.

    Evening Mick,

    Moonta is pretty much the same as usual, great part of the world to live.

    I don't collect coffee machines, my interest is in what they dispense into the cup, I bought a Bezzera Domus Galatea about 7 years ago, excellent machine, it produces great coffee with a minimum of fuss, it's teamed up with a Mazzer Mini, don't anticipate replacing either in the near future, simply don't see what a new machine would do that the Bezzera doesn't.

    In the past I owned a Krupps for a brief period then upgraded to a Silvia which I owned for 10 years, from there to my current machine.

    My progression has been:

    Breville BES820 > Saeco Via Venezia > Sunbeam EM6910 > La Pavoni Europiccola > Wega Mininova > Breville BES900

    Currently using the BES900 with a Compak K3, no immediate plans to change.
    Not sure what my favourite has been, they all are good in their own way.

    I went from Moka pot to Breville BES900. Currently using it with Macap M4D. No upgrade plans but will replace with something like Minore IV when it eventually becomes fuber.

    I started off with a cheap little Breville thermoblock unit which took some real punishment (even survived a short stint at my brother's army barracks) before it finally packed it in a couple of years ago. I then upgraded to a Rancilio Silvia which I paired with a Compak K3 which was a total game changer for me.

    The Silvia got some rust problems after a bit of neglect in a share house (and going away on holiday for a couple of months while leaving water in the spill tray).

    Was about to fix up Ms Silvia when I got a good deal on Breville BES920 with the smart grinder a couple of weeks ago. Still have the smart grinder in its original packaging as the Compak is still going strong and I also have a Brasilia which was inherited from the folks (which has pretty much become the girlfriend's grinder)

    My girlfriend is a barista as well so we have an assortment of every other coffee gadget imaginable from syphons to pourover kits

    Hello,

    I just purchased recently a Diadema Unico Splendor and upto now I am still adjusting with her and for sure sooner or later we will build a special connection between us.. hehehe!

    Back in the Philippines my first machine was Sunbeam Piccolo and used it for 3 moths or so. And then my partner gave me a new machine which was Sunbeam Café Latte EM5600. Both machines collaborated with entry level grinder (see pics..hehehe) . When I moved here to Australia and my vampire coffee blood is started to arise, I decided to get a Breville 800ES and Breville Dose Control Pro. These two are amazing combination and let me do a decent latte art with a good taste . I had a good learning experience with her (the machines) but sometimes I feel like I want to do more and she cant keep up... For now I am looking for a new home for her...

    After playing with my Breville machines for about 3 months, I felt like I am ready to go and step up a bit to satisfy my coffee addiction, hehehe! I scouted for over a month of what machines is best for Home set up that is not too big, not too pricey but still can perform as a PRO. I came across with Giotto Rocket, ecm, vbm, expobar and finally the DIADEMA UNICO SPLENDOR.

    When I unboxed her and set it up on my counter and performed my first latte, it feels like this is the taste I been looking and searching for... she brings out the best aroma and taste of the coffee ofcourse with the help of Mazzer Mini... just PERFECT... And now I am waiting for a decent tamper "great leveller" and tamping stand. As I said I still need to know her better and day by day I am very much willing to adjust to the best of ability to use her (not abuse her) with a heart.. hehehe!
