Subject: Breville Dual Boiler BES900 Road Trip!!  (Need a few more good geeks...)
 

Hello all,
We are organizing a road trip for a test unit Breville Dual Boiler BES900 machine.  So I am looking for a few good geeks who would be willing to take the machine for a week or so and run it through the paces and then post some detailed results and impressions.  

Each participant must be willing to re-box and pay postage to the next participant.  

We are looking for just a few folks (maybe 5?).
All should be Senior Coffeegeek Forum members with active participation in the forums.  For this one, we will probably be posting more formal reviews following a CoffeeGeek article (by Mark Prince).  Participants will be more experienced users, and will probably get to post some background information about experience, equipment owned, etc.  



If you're seriously interested then please shoot me an email and post to this thread.  

Cheers,
Jon

With MY luck, I'd be the guy who'd have to ship it to CHINA! LOL
Let me check with the wife.
Jon, thanks for getting this going. I'm sure without my "expertise?" you'll have worthy participants, and it's a nice way for fellow Geeks to interact!

BUMP

I'll give it a go. Being a HX person, I have no problem giving a DB a try. I don't have a very high opinion of Breville and I would like to be supprised. This would be a better evaluation for me personally than against the starter class machine. I don't have a lot of use with a SBDU machine in the last few years. Silvia is going to change that for me at work but that is still future use at the moment.
OH, BTW, the RR-45 offer still stands though it will probably up the shipping costs a bit. Yes, please route the shipping schedule so that it goes in a circle, not cross country time after time, lower cost for everyone.

Email has been sent.

Anything I post is personal opinion and is only worth as much as anyone else's personal opinion. YMMV!

Feed the newbs, starve the trolls and above all enjoy what you drink!

I won't send a separate email since I already did in the CC1 communications, but just to "officially" offer that I'd be willing to test both, I'm posting it on this thread.

Not a senior member, mind if I swing by and be supervised.
Been waiting for this to hit the market, looking to buy an upgrade from my Silvia.
