  • My new distraction: Miss Dalla Corte Mini

    Miss BFC Junior Automatic (aka La Valentina, Diadema, Vittoria)  Vs  Miss Dalla Corte Mini

     
    Well got her fired up ... When the wife exclaimed...  "Look at that ... Oohhaaa Dear "  

    The power meter jumped much higher than, when Miss BFC was on..

    Ans:  1800w  Vs  1300W

    Note: Have made enquiries and looking to add the Super mini mod that will allow just the group boiler to be turned on...  This should save power and time.  Further more, as we often have straight shots for any number of reasons including affogatos it will reduce waiting time etc....


    Some flashing lights and then I thought a jumbo or one of the tunnel trucks had mounted the gutter...  Nooo   The Em6910 had returned...

    Bugger me...  After the mod to add the thermal dampening to Miss BFC, I had totally forgotten how noisy a non rotary pump can be  ;D

    Ans:  Thermal insulation and DynaMat sound proofing to be implemented this weekend

    Chant: Change is good for coffee toys... Change is not not always good for the Wife  

    1:  Got to now re learn many things...

    A: Grind
    B: Tamp and dose level
    C: Steam... Bloody froth every where  ;D  Powerful and 3 holes in the tip..
    D: Space for cups and mugs the same as Miss BFC
    E: Puck came out with two thumps and not the usual one

    Chant: Change is good for coffee toys... Change is not not always good for the Wife  

    After a couple of shots... What was in the cup was what was there yesterday..

    After trying to stretch milk... What was in the cup was what almost what was there yesterday..

    Chant: Change is good for coffee toys... Change is not not always good for the Wife  

    Here is a shot of the two ladies side by side  8-)

        Congratts AM,

        The carbon group head has got me thinking about my side panels now...

        Your Coffee Machine Altar will please the coffee gods and may there be daily offerings of freshly roasted coffee beans sacrificed to honor the gods.

        Thanks be to Coffee!

          Will do... A few things to get done yet...

          But once Miss Dalla C is bedded in; then Miss BFC has to find another CS to care and love her

              When I was at Tobys Estate (near Newtown) last weekend I saw that the shelf model Speedster that they have had as pride of place amongst the models that they sell has now been connected behind the counter. It is being used exclusively for short blacks. Its current RRP is AUSD12,000.

                    didnt know too much about the mini.....did a search
                    Where.... On Google  ;D ;D ;D

                    Here is a review that I found; however it was done at the end of 2007.  I can tell you that there has been changes and they have been for the better.

                    A: Most noticeable is that the temp control panel is much neater looking.

                    B: 54mm not 53mm baskets

                    C: Insides are clean and the splash guards and wiring is very neat.

                    D: Standard SS bolt for teh shower screen, now a nice SS counter sunk unit.

                    Bug has got me however and now I need the following to set the kitchen off....

                    http://www.mahlkoenig.de/en_products/VARIO-home.html/?setLanguage=en_EN

                    Note: Sound proofing added this morning and Miss BFC moved to allow her to be cleaned and ready for inspection / collection...
