          I've run a few shots now, gotta say it's a pretty darn impressive unit. Quality fittings- nothing plastic fantastic about it. Quiet as a mouse compared to the Expobar, amazing shots (we're finally getting those little black specks in the crema) and textures milk like a dream.
          There seems to be a fair bit of controversy about the unit, feeling a little intimidated by the response. More then happy to answer any questions.

            Guess we caught the coffee bug. No apologies for that.

              Yes Chris, I understood it the first time - the implication that your view and only your view is worthy of a clear conscience? All I'm saying is there is no need to make this point to the OP. He just bought a machine that he liked, probably without knowing the politics behind it.

                Yes, I think it will be a great machine. Honestly at the price point of these machines you'd have to be unlucky to get a bad one and La Pavoni know what they're doing look at their other machines and the feedback on them, universally favourable.

                You have the group's sympathy and good wishes, overwhelmingly anyway...

                  Good on you hellgq, don't worry about the controversy, just keep making coffee that you enjoy on the machine you enjoy.

                    I notice that the chassis and body is made of Stainless Steel. I think this might be the only Giotto that does. It is a good idea as a chassis is prone to corrosion if done in mild steel. I mean my Bezzera is 20 years old with only minor corrosion of the chassis but it is a nice touch.

                      Yep, a thick 304 SS chassis. We all know that costs big $

                      All of the HX La Pavoni's have commercial (Sirai) pressurestats as well. Again, that means more $.
                      The vibe version has a well damped and quiet pump. It's not "almost rotary" quiet like the Profitec Pro 500, but it's definitely rattle free.
                      They have gone all out to make sure that these machines are best in class. AUS spec improvements are the cream on the cake.

                      ---------

                      Post post edit: Some took the above to be a wild claim these these are best in class. That really wasn't my intention. What I meant was that they haven't cut corners and built a cheap machine. They have spend extra $ and gone all out with the intention to make these best in class. Have they succeeded? I'll let others comment on that.

                          I think all $2000 plus machines should use stainless steel for the chassis. It does cost but I would be surprised if it added more than $100 to the price. The makers do it because everyone else does it. Just lazy.

                            Could you email La Marzocco to suggest that?

                              Chris are saying makers should be encouraged not to use stainless for the chassis?

                              List the benefits please.
