    Engadget: How-To Mod your ECM Giotto

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Gadget blog site, Engadget has a front page article for tech-geeks about modding the pump on an ECM Giotto.

    http://www.engadget.com/2006/08/08/how-to-mod-your-espresso-machine/



    "The quest for caffeine leads many a geek down the road to espresso, as we know all too well. We havent gotten around to turning a MacBook into an espresso machine... yet, but we just cant resist modifying our stuff. Todays How-To is a bit along the lines of Tim Taylor, but its all about the espresso

    Todays victim is our prized ECM Giotto. It was misbehaving recently, so we took it apart. While we were visiting her innards, we just couldnt resist making a small upgrade to the pump system.."

    Niice.

    ok, so Ive no idea, even owning one - does Giotto have two pumps, one for brew water and one for boiler? I *know* I get two different noises when Im brewing and the water level in the boiler drops, but are they two separate pumps, or is there some other magic trickery to do it all with one?

    Perhaps two rotary pumps is a silly idea......... yeah, but that still may not stop me, the noise benefits would help my neighbours greatly

    Hows the new house going? You wouldnt have to worry about the noise from Giotto there would you??

    Im on a "low interest level" on this mod right now. Perhaps you should go first, youll be waiting for ever if you dont!
