    Finally... New toy

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Today I paid a visit to Simply Coffee and came home with a new toy.

    A Simonelli Oscar.

    Mr Taxman, whilst being very generous, wasn't as generous as I'd hoped so instead of my dream machine (giotto), I showed great restraint and stayed within budget. Very hard thing for a coffeesnob to do.
    So far I have pulled off a few shots and whilst not perfect, they will get there. The frightening thing is the superfast steamer. Looks like I will be getting in some practice again I had a laugh.

    Overall, for my first HX, I am very happy with my purchase. Although it looks like a visit to IKEA for a new benchtop thingy is in order to fit it on as it is a lot bigger than I realised.

    I still have felix, my old gaggia, but he is off for a service and may be going to my daughter.

    Congratulations. Awaiting the obligatory 27 8x10 colour glossy photographs with circles and arrows etc. Enjoy.

    The Oscar is probably going to be next on my upgrade list when I get the $$. Any pros/cons?
