  • Synesso MVP Hydra arrival and install!!!

    A few of you have been following my thread where I was asking for some advice on new machine ( https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?url...4&share_type=t

    Synesso MVP Hydra 1 Group, thoughts? )

    Well this is finally the post that reveals the choice I've made, thank you everyone for your contributions.

    Now I'm sure a few of you are shocked at the decision, but basically it comes down to a few simple things.

    When I tested out the machines on offer, I found that the Synesso was by far, the machine I like to operate the most. It has a great feel behind the wheel and the controls are perfectly placed and beautiful to use.

    The other main thing was that it offered me volumetric control as well as manual profiling, none of the others could truly do this.

    Yes it's a large machine and on my current bench it looks to be rather imposing, though I've bought this to go into a new house we are building and I'll have a dedicated coffee nook. There I believe it will fit in perfectly.

    I got called into work today so I haven't really had a chance to play, but I'll update this thread as I learn more about the machine. Thanks again for your interest and feel free to ask me any questions you might have.

                Awesome! What's the plan for the grinders now that the Mythos doesn't match?

                  Congratulations! Thanks for the behind the scenes look, amazing how much of the machine is outside the casing.

                    Yeah, why does it have to be so big?

                    I think one reason is it's the same design as always, but I truly think it's because the ergonomics are so good they keep it this way(unless they are too lazy to change it).

                      they match, don't they???

                      I can't begin to think about that, the Mythos will have to do for now.

                      What do you recommend? ha ha

                              I think /hope he is messing with you on the Mythos 🤣

                              If you want imposing you could go EK43 or one of the Titan Grinders. Or perhaps the Lyn Weber EG-1 would match "better".

                              It's the espresso overdose talking... 🤡
