    Looking good Tom, the eye cups make a great look!

    Now you can relax and enjoy the simple serenity...

      Really nice stuff. I've always imagined myself having a few machines to choose from but then I imagine I get some anxiety in deciding what to use.

      How do you choose between the Decent and the Lever? Also, how does the Decent Lever profiles compare?

        Great question. I'm planning to do some back to back comparisons with the Decent v Valexia on the weekend and will let you know my thoughts. As you likely know, theoretically the Decent can emulate any other machine because it can be set for any temperature at the group head, any pressure or any flow rate at any stage of the shot including preinfusion.

        But what it can never emulate is the feeling of the lever.

      Yochiya, that is like asking how these new AI computerised sex dolls compare with the real thing! 😄

      One is a Lever, the other is a machine trying to emulate a lever.

        Funny but also some truth in that. Time and place for both? (And ... don't knock it until you've tried it"?)

      I don't know man, the modern sex dolls are feature rich and don't complain when you buy more coffee kit...

      On a serious note, I've heard this before a few times. Sounds like it's hard to say exactly why but the real thing is just better.

      Wish I could rent a Decent for a week...

        tompoland would love to hear your thoughts and experiences once you've had some time to compare.

        Out of curiosity, what is the size of the boiler and does it have a drain plug?

          What he said. No internal water tank so I have it set up with a 15L water bottle and flojet. Works well. I have it on a smart timer to turn on an hour before I am up.

          It is a cracker of a machine.
          I am envious.

        plumbing it in is easy. Use some John Guest fittings and run a line from your nearest tap. You can install an inline filtration setup as well or even an RO system. PM me and I will send you a link for some local contacts if it interests you.

          Thanks, may be moving house, hence the reason for not plumbing it in just yet. But if we do move, I've be sure and come back to you.
      Working...
