Hallo all,

I'm in the process of upgrading my faithful old coffee setup (Doserless Rocky / Gaggia Classic w/ PID).

I have a Bezzera BZ35 being installed next week, but my new M5D arrived today.

On factory settings, it actually choked after grinding one dose. Took me a while to clear and wind it way back from the turkish-like talc it started with.

Anyway, an hour and maybe 500gm of beans later, it's tuned beautifully for the Classic. Completely different level of grind tuning possible with this thing, compared with the Rocky.

Amazed at how many new flavours I can taste in the espresso (without the bitter / sour I'm used to). Flat white tastes suddenly super-sweet.

I'm mad keen to see what this beast will do once the Bezzera arrives :-)

Thanks to the many posters here who said nice things about the Macap. You were all right :-P
