    The ergonomics of the wand controls is great, flick the toggle lever any which way you like & you have full steam pressure. Gentle tap, it springs back to the centre & steams stops instantly.
    One downside is you cant regulate/control the steam pressure, its all or nothing.
    Ive gone from Silvia to this and the quantum leap in milk texturing has surprised me. I managed to get fantastic microfoam on my second attempt.
    The machine is running a bit hot, 1.3-1.4bar boiler & 9.5-9.75bar brew pressure, I might see if I can find info on adjusting it.
    Also Im not overly keen on the whole hx flush routine, so Im considering the Brewtus ( ;) Chris).

    Hmm- I would have thought that 0.95-1.1 bar should have been adequate with a big boiler like that....As for pump pressure, 9.5 bar is not too bad....could be 8.5-9.0 however my demo Minore seemed to want a touch more....and I settled on 9.5 bar....

    As for the Minore (1 month away at the moment :-/) no problemo, however you will however still require a short initial (say perhaps 50-75 ml) warming flush with the Minore II/Brewtus...In between shots though, a short cleaning/rinsing flush is fine....
