    Hello world!

    This is my first ever post. I have been a CS surfer for quite a few years now and loved the friendly environment and the knowledge people have over here. A bit about me:

    Based in Victoria/Australia and brew around 28-40 shots/week. I have a Mazzer Mini Electronic, paired with a Breville Dual boiler (BES 920). Sadly, the Breville decided to have steam/pump issues and was quoted $385-400 to fix (by espressofix). Not keen on fixing, I am in the market for my next dual boiler beast.

    Unable to justify the $8k LM GS3 spend, I am doing my final research before I pull the trigger on an ECM Synchronika. The top 3 dual boiler finalists for me were the Rocket R58, Profitek 700 and ECM Synch. Since I am really keen on the shot timer, I dropped Rocket R58 from my list so now its between the Profitek and ECM Synchronika.

    Heavily leaning towards the ECM synchronika at this stage (mainly due to the build quality over the profitek). As this will be a long term investment for me 7+ years, I am happy to pay a bit more.

    Will update once/after I purchase!

    Cheers

    Hi! Im new here. Go easy on me!

    Iíve owned more machines than I can count and one of the best was an Alex duetto.

    It was by far the quietest machine I have owned. More so than the Linea Mini that Iím currently using. Worth trying them all out in the flesh I say.

    I havenít tried the other two so canít compare them but did own an R58

    Hi all,

    Another long time lurker but first time poster here. The forum has provided me a lot of helpful info to date so I figure it's time to repay by contributing (well as far as my limited experience allows me too anyway...)

    My first foray into home brewed coffee started about 4 years ago with a Moka pot and supermarket ground coffee... It's fair to say I had unrealistic expectations of what to expect from a Moka pot.. I wanted to make espresso.. with that oh so rich crema on top.. Reflecting back on some of those early attempts the coffee was mostly horrible.

    Thankfully I soon bought an appliance grade grinder (Breville Dose Control) and sourced some locally roasted whole beans and things started to improve drastically.

    Since then I've dabbled with a couple of other brewing methods such as french press, pour-over and the Aeropress (probably my favourite acquisition to date!) but now I really want to start exploring the world of home-made espresso. I've recently acquired a Sunbeam EM7000 to start me off on that journey.

    Let's see where I end up...
    Dave

    Long time reader here but never jumped into posting. I usually brew at home with either an Aeropress or pour over. I have a Bezzera grinder.

    I have worked in restaurants and cafes for 12 years and owned one myself for 6 of those years. I am going to finally get myself a home machine. I have been lucky enough to acquire a Bezzera Galatea Domus machine made in 2013 for free off my parents (they bought it against my advice about a year and a half ago; they never use it, which is what i told them would happen).
    So now I am looking to sell that. Does anyone have any advice on what I should be looking for as a sale price? I cant keep it as it is overkill for my apartment. I am looking at getting a La Pavoni lever machine as I have used my friends quite a bit and I am in love with them.

    Keep up the great work on the forum, looking forward to getting more involved.

    Hi there. First post on this account but was actually a member a few years a go. Account possibly deleted because i wasn't using it?

    Anyway recently sold my LM GS3 and have gone full filter. After 5 years with the GS3 it was a tough old sale but to be honest moving to filter coffee has reinvigorated my love for coffee. I'm even thinking about getting back into roasting!
