Good on ya tony!,
Remember not all 6910s go belly up, i would say the majority that have here, are the result of a small percentage breaking and the owners searching the net and finding coffeesnobs.com.au! Your right, it wont last as long as a silvia and rocky but your having fun now, and now is what its all about!
What browns did you get from Andy? please say the Espresso WOW.....they are all great but the WOW is.....well......WOW!
enjoy your new machine and stay in touch on teh forum, great bunch here, with a wealth of knowledge on teh 6910 and in general, great conversationalists! ;D
