    Upgrade Miss Silvia

    Such heresy.
    BUT, is it possible to upgrade Miss Silvia and/or Rocky with a non-plumbed in machine?
    Has anyone upgraded or given consideration to a non-plumbed in upgrade?

    Re: Upgrade Miss Silvia

    Ive just bought a Cimbali Junior s1 (pourover ie not plumbed ) and if all goes to plan it will eventually replace silvia.

    No real compeling reason to upgrade, Im very happy with the quality of silvias output and dont expect a qantm improvement in taste although volume production when required should be much easier. Im also hopeful of greater consistency between shots but this may well be fantasy!

    The Cimbali is second hand, thus I had no choice for plumbed or not plumbed, however depending on the price difference I may well have selected the same model. You always have the option whether via a manufactrers kit or DIY to convert to plumbed in anyway.

    Good luck, I rather liked the look of the S24 as well. Have you seen the Oscar sienna are clearing for under $1k? Cheapest HX option by far for a new machine.

    Thank you Maurice. I looked into the Oscar, but will hope a member/owner will give me a good report. Yes, like you, I would like a machine than can produce faster under number pressure! By the time I have prepared every one elses I end up drinking alone, even though I only drink ristrettos. The doctor said I drink too much coffee. Now I just tell her the total volume without dwelling on the fact that they are all ristrettos. I love ristrettos.
    An owner please, do you like your oscar?
