    Try the "Bean Alliance". I think they have an office in your neck of the woods but youll have to "let your fingers do the walking"!

    Regardez,

    Yep your right.

    Ive contacted the Brisbane office today.

    Unfortunately they only import the larger commerical unit and not the S1.

    Ive asked them to cost one up to see what the damage would be.

    Anyone else interested in an S1?

    I like the idea but I think the damage will be more than I can take :(
    If they come in at less than $3500 Ill be amazed.
    Have you looked at the Reneka Techno? These two machines seem to be compared to each other on other forums. I investigated the cost of importing a Techno a while back and from memory I was looking at $3700 plus and I had to pick it up from my nearest international airport...

    I like the look of the Reneka Techno but I agree with some of the reviews Ive read with regard to no steam adjustment :o
    Just a push button steam on/off... otherwise it ok.

    For the S1 Im expecting a price under 3k, if not someone is making a hugh profit. >:(....

    The S1 sells at an everyday price of $1895US (Im sure better deal can be made) @ todays exchange(1AUD=0.783US) approx $2421AUD, Id have to check duties etc, but I know of a few people that have import CRT projectors (60-80kG) from the US for less than $600.

    The Aust importer normally only brings in a container of the larger commerical machines once evey 6months or so, and If a get one it will be thrown in, so Id expect freight costs to be a minmum.

    Wait and see I guess...

    Sounds like things might come together for a reasonable price. I hope they do, Id like to hear a first hand report of the La Spaziale S1 from a fellow coffeesnob ;)

    Rebirthing this thread. Wondering if any CSers have purchased one of these and if so what you thought? I used a few (unfortunately not calibrated for temp) on various gigs and found that out of the box they ran waaaaay hot...In theory, they should be really good if tweaked. Interestingly, there is a single boiler tank model and the twin boiler is plumb only....

    I had them on my range list for a while, and then dropped them due to lack of interest...
