    What Next?

    Id love to get some of your thoughts on my next machine. *I have an Ikon at the moment & was considering a Sylvia, but I notice for a few hundred dollars more I could get a machine with an E61 group head & temp gauges for better stability?

    If I am only making 2 to 4 cups per day & occassionally needing to make 6 to 8 in a row for mates, would a high end single boiler be OK? *I dont think I could afford an HX machine, although you guys in the know may think that a low end HX would not cost much more than the better single boilers out there!

    I appreciate your help guys! 8-)

    Warm Regards
    Andrew

    Gday Secksy,

    Just going from the equipment list in your Sig, Id recommend that you purchase a decent grinder before putting the Ikon aside. The Ikon is quite a capable little machine and coupled with any one of the Prosumer type grinders available from our esteemed site sponsors, you will be able to produce some truly excellent espresso.

    Get the grinder first mate and worry about upgrading the espresso machine later, you wont be sorry.... :)

    Mal.
