a: Silvia = Sideways
b: Grinder = Rocky
c: Pours *= Average *6- 10 *a day
Would like semi Auto, all be it for simplicity for the wife and kids. *They grind, tamp and do most every thing but it has a timer for the pour. *They*Hit the button and if they look away... NO problems.
Coffee and Steaming of Milk at the same time to allow those little dinner parties to happen with out extra long delays. *Do no want to get into after marker mods and temp surfing etc.. *Wife and Kids would o off in a huff...
I may not be able to afford till after x-mass so will be watching this thread closely and would expect that I may have to up the $1500 limit slightly.
Wife and daughter off to Italy next year and would love to have them bring back a "retro looking style unit" . Saw one her the other day on CS but can not find it for the love of me *>:(
