    Did someone say the original L1 looked more like a prototype than a production machine?

    It looks like they were right!

    So a small time roaster who was a distributor for Bosco machines, sees a niche in the market place. They develop the L1. Good for them, there was a demand. Now they are competing in the Commercial market against Bosco, Izzo and others.
    I would not touch it.
    Bosco and others others have been in the business for decades, supplying a quality product, tried and tested.
    Ego, with a chip on your shoulder does not equate to success.
    When KVDW visit Bosco, (as documented on their website) you know that they seek access to experience. I doubt an ex lawyer and Francino have anywhere the espresso machine knowledge that an old master like Bosco has forgotten.
    Good luck to them.
    In Australia CRA distribute Bosco. I would rather deal with them, and pay a premium, than buy from a start up company.

    Besides, the Bosco is hand made, with lots of "nuances". This makes it a work of art in my book.

      The L1-P is not a replacement but a separate product.

      The original L1 still stands and to my understanding over 500 units have been sold to approximately 40 countries. I'm very happy with mine.

          I am pretty sure the Bosco is cheaper once you factor in shipping and GST.
          Personally for that kind of money I would go an Izzo.

            I preferred and still do, the Bosco over the Izzo.
            Both have their own quirks.
            I just like the way the Bosco is made, small scale and individual.

            Nothing wrong with the Izzo. I have used one, and still prefer my Bosco.

            Both make great coffee in the right hands.

            RRP of a 1 grp Sorrento is $5500. The Posillipo is $450 more.

            As stated, cheaper than the L1-P, and with full Australian warranty.

            Remember, Australian consumer warranty guarantees the machine is fit for purpose.

              Still happy but it is time for a change so a shiny new L1-P is now on the way.
