Question for an owner of a Nuova Simonelli Oscar II
I just bought an Oscar II with Grinter grinder for a family member.
I've obviously been doing the reading. The buttons for single shot and double shot are programmable based I believe on time, not volume.
The question is:
If you press the shot button whilst it is extracting, does it cancel / end the shot?
If so, assuming you only ever use the double basket, I would think you could simply program the single button appropriately for what is about right, and the double button can be set for about a minute. That way you press the double button, keep an eye on your shot, and end the extraction with another press, thus using it like a manual extraction timer. Sure you could do that anyway with the button programmed correctly - but only if you want to stop the shot early. If you need to go over time, you cannot - not without preinfuse and slight pause on beans that have already been extracted, for the sake of a few extra seconds on a shot in case the beans are a bit fine or oily etc.
That's what I'm hoping anyway. Anyone?
