    Youll be lucky. Even in the US these machines are pretty much untried and untested. I seem to remember a few good links in a discussion on the home-barista site. For a dual boiler machine, the price is good (in the US).

    Cheers,

    The price is probably pretty good here as well, if you can track one down. The lack of a temperature display and the reported need to dismantle the machine to change the temperature are big negatives, in my books. Pity, because the machine otherwise looks like it could be good. 53mm portafilters, like the la spaziales, so Id expect it to behave somewhat similar.

    Cheers,

    Was it only the commercial machines that came with the handheld control unit thingy that let you set temps?

    I can get a Mini from a local distributor here in sleepy old Perth ;D....... however he wants $2997 + GST :(

    I think the 2 single group machines have a manual temperature dial on the fascia, which are meant to be fairly accurate and stable.

    However, since playing with a two group Synesso yesterday :o, the upgrade from silvia at home could be put on hold............
    until after I buy a cafe, to justify playing with one of these beauties all day long ;D
