    Welcome to CS.

    Take a look down the LHS of the screen and you will find some sponsors in Adelaide. There are others that arent sponsors that you will find by other means, & you wont have any trouble finding someone to help.

            I bought my Giotto from Talk Coffee in Melbourne and I live in Perth WA. It all went very smoothly and I was able to track the goods on the way. It was insurered. This can be discussed. Good thing about most sponsors is they will check the unit and make important adjustments before they send it. You know what you get has been checked out, is tuned correctly and works. I think sponsors like Talk Coffee have warranty arrangements in the owners state. I have found I could ring for help and it has been a very happy experience. Being so close to say talk coffee you could pop over see them!! Perth was just too far away but I really wanted to.

                Caution:
                Instructions on how to make great coffee on a "manual" machine are all very well--but it is a skill and will take some time to acquire.
                The step up from a super-auto is pretty big--enjoy the trip.

                    Are you suggesting CSers are on some kind of perpetual coffee break!? Outrageous.

                            A great combo, and I look forward to hearing about your great shots too. The search may be long but no doubt worthwhile. 8-)
