Mark, I hadn't been on your site in awhile, and dropped by yesterday to look around. Maybe out of curiousity, I read this article. Ironically, on my way back from downtown L.A. today, I stopped at the SCAA headquarter offices in Long Beach. (I live less than an hour from there...). While chatting with the staff, I walked into the test kitchen/lab, and was really taken back to see the NS machines in place of the LM's that I'd been used to seeing. Outside of the fact that a qualified barista can adapt to any most any machine, I will always be partial to double boiler design. And to address the comment of "stale water" sitting in a DB machine that isn't cycled regularly, I always do a flush on both steam and brew boilers for that very reason. I can't attest to the chemical changes in standing-heated water, but my instincts say that it's best to do so, and doesn't cost that much more. Interesting and timely article, given that this represents a rather major change in competition gear. I'm hopeing to go back to SCAA as soon as I can, to spend some time in the lab running some shots. I'm sure I'll visit the NS booth at Coffee Fest, Las Vegas next month.

FYI: near the end of this article you wrote 8kg grouphead, you may want to change this one to 5.7 too.

While the machine sounds awesome on it's technical merits, I'm just digging how cool it looks with the lights behind the group heads.  It's like an espresso machine from a space ship.
