  • Damn Upgradeitis

    So I finally caved and moved into the Pointy End region yesterday, bought myself my first brand new machine, a Vibiemme Domobar Junior HX, care of Talk Coffee, unfortunately I can't actually get to Chris's warehouse to collect it until Saturday... And I'm literally itching to get my hands on it.

    Great choice... I hear that steaming power on the Vibiemmes is ferocious!

      A good anti-inflammatory hand cream will help until Sat.

                Got it home and dialed in pretty quick, had a pretty decent coffee out of it, spent most of the rest of the day cleaning up my old Zaffiro ready for sale

                It is a bit of a steam beast, but coming from the single boiler world (had a Silvia prior to the Zaffiro) it was always going to be an adjustment, my microfoam is not perfect but it's pretty close and getting better, first run out I overdid the milk but I'm starting to get a feel for the speed now, didn't find the angle of the steam holes to be problematic.

                Haven't tried the simultaneous shot+steam trick yet, I'm still very much in the linear "pull shot", "steam milk" mindset but I'm sure I'll get there in the end

                Not having to re-prime a boiler every time I steam is most definitely an excellent thing.
