I just wanted to write and say a huge thanks (and a thumbs up) to Chris from Talk Coffee. I have just splurged on my first REAL coffee machine and grinder - a Diadema Reale (1.3L) and a Macap M4 grinder - and took ages to make up my mind on what I wanted.
Not only did Chris give me a very good price (the best I could find for new equipment), he provided time and advice to a person new to this level of coffee machine.
I know that most people would have had a good experience with using the site sponsors, but I wanted to just put my hand up and say that I highly recommend Talk Coffee. They certainly get my vote!
Oh, and I am writing this whilst sipping a beautiful latte from my lovely shiny new Diadema.
(PS: no I am not on the Talk Coffee payroll! ha ha)
Congratulations mate, an excellent combo for sure and Chris will certainly look after you..... [smiley=thumbsup.gif]
You will be truly impressed with just how easy it is to extract wonderful espresso from these machines and the steaming power available makes texturing milk a breeze too. Have fun.... ;D
