Always nice to have my name mentioned.
I agree with Chris that this machine has been all I asked for and more.
Lucky customer has the benefit of adding some improvements that werent available to me at the time, like the cool touch wand (though I want it more for the different tip) and the cup rails (which I added later when Chris was able to get some).
I was never interested in the extra electronics of the Minore and although Chris is the expert compared to me, Im no spring chook and have some experience under my belt.
Together we came up with a brilliant machine for me.
Chris says it punches above its class, hes wrong, it is in that class.
Great value for money. I had a good sized budget but dont see the logic in paying for a name badge.
The heritage of this machine is just as good as some of the machines still made in Italy as far as Im concerned.
I still cant picture this machine lagging behind my needs at any stage in a home situation.
Im the one who cant push it to its limits when it comes to making multiple coffees.
By now Im sure youve gathered that I highly recommend to anyone that you buy one of these from Chris and join me as an Expobar Leva owner.
