        Sweet machine, looks really solid. Do you know much about it? Any relation to the pasta company of the same name?

        Looks like that 4.5ltr boiler really helps out maintaining pressure, that looked like a decent amount of steam for a setting of 0.9bars. Interesting placement of the pressure gauges also.

        Just as a matter of interest, how old was the coffee being used? Virtually no co2 and a really decent crema. And lastly, how you finding the c-ripple reg? any positives or negatives in the cup (besides general aesthetics).

        Thanks for putting that online

          hey,
          thanks for the replies..

          Maheel, good eye, is a KitchenAid mixer :-)

          AM, its Cocobolo.. beautiful wood, mail me if really want some stuff done for you..

          PBerry,
          doubt there is any relation with the pasta company,
          here is the SanRemo site http://www.sanremomachines.com/index.php?lang=1

          The boiler is suppose to work at .8-1bar, giving PLENTY ENDLESS team, Im sure the 1950W helps a lot..

          the coffee is a Costa Rica I roast two days ago..

          Lastly,
          is not a C-ripple, I have the C-ripple RB and unfortunatelly have nothing good to say about it.. the ridges are VERY SHALLOW and is hard to see any difference in the puck,
          the tamper I use its cheap base I bought and I made the handle,
          there you can see the difference..
          the one good thing I can say about ridged tampers is that help avoid pig-tail... ANNND give a cool look to the puck..:P

            Some good info and stuff...

            I must admit... I liked your Tamp over teh RB... I have always wondered about teh ridges...

            And one day... If my lathe ever arrives ( error 404 page not found - Dammed financial controller) I was interested to attempt something similar.. But more of a spiral, rather than separate rings...

            PM sent...

              Spiral out? To push the coffee to the edges? Is that the theory?

                Just a concept in my mind..

                1: When twisting you will break the surface and it does not work..

                2: If Tamping straight down, then more of a Pattern and water flow..

                A the time of my post it was late and I was also not thinking as clearly as I should have.

                I tend to do a funny rocking tamp, so for me it could work... But the putting it into practice is another matter.

                        The machine certainly ticks all the boxes in my book. Procon pump, hx, thermosyphon group heating, pre-infusion. Nice buy, you turned the pre-infusion on though? Can you explain the pre-infusion system on this machine? Like the water set up, was planning the same.

                          RG,thanks,

                          the pre-infusion on this machine can be enable or disable with few clicks and turns here and there.. fairly easy.

                          I like it ON, it just wet the puck before going to full 9bars of pressure..

                          thats from the manual:

                          To enable pre-brewing
                          With the appliance switched off, put the on/off switch (D) to position 1 and at the same time keep the button (M1) on the left-hand group pressed until the
                          indicator light corresponding to the button (M5) remains lit; then release the button (M1). Now put the on/off switch (D) to position 0 and then to position
                          2 in order to store the operation.
                          To disable pre-brewing
                          With the appliance switched off, put the on/off switch (D) to position 1 and at the same time keep the button (M2) on the left-hand group pressed until the
                          indicator light corresponding to the button (M5) remains lit; then release the button (M2). Now switch the appliance off and then on again using the on/off
                          switch (D) in order to store the operation.

                              David,

                              fairly simple, its a ceramic bowl with some modification in the fitting, and a 1 gallon Spring water.


                              for the fitting I use a rubber leg of a Livia90, shaped to fit in the bowl and a hole in the middle for the fitting


                              straight to the rotary pump


                              thats the set up


                              it works great.!
