    I had a laugh sorry about that muppet man, better luck next time. Yes the next step is getting a grinder, I am thinking of starting out with a little sunbeam for now and upgrading when I can afford to. However I cant wait to get my hands on a Pullman Tamp!!!

    Re: I won a Wega!

    So my shiny new machine arrived on Monday, so naturally I was pulling shots on it all day!!!!! As I didnt have anything to use it with, my Sunbeam cafe series grinders also got a chance to stretch its legs and I am actually loving the combination. It takes all of 10 mins to warm up, about the same as my Dalla Cortes at work, extracting and steaming simultaniously not a problem at all. Mum does complain about the noise it makes at 7 in the morning, but soon wavers as I hand her a ristretto latte in bed. Needles to say it is actually appart of the family now and am in the process of teaching my brother to use it! I did however had a little trouble steaming with the pressure, but I concluded that I am a bit spoilt at work my my plummed in Dalla Cortes. I would highly recommend this machine, it gives smooth consistent espresso and I LOVE IT!!! ;D ;D ;D

    Nice one Nadya. Wish mine was free. There arent too many of us Wega mini owners on here. I have the rotary pump version (plumb in).

    Just curious what is pressure is your machine set at, e.g. does the pressure go down to 1.1 bar before the boiler element fires up again? I just recently set mine around the 1.1 mark and the cooling flushes have reduced to around 120ml.

    The 5 hole wand has a crazy amount of output. I was thinking about a different wand for mine, it does 200ml of milk in around 7-10 seconds.

    Pm me, its ok if you pop around and have a muck around on my Wega mini to see if it suits you. Dont worry i am not a freak, just a generous person when it comes to coffee.
