Greetings to all. I rarely post but I have lurked on and off for years. Generally I have nothing to add but I feel remorse in not posting so here goes. I've had the subject line machine for about 3 weeks and I am having fun with it. I still murder the milk steaming but eventually I'll get there. I switched from using my Elektra MCAL to this new machine. Using the same Macap MXK conical grinder and still dialing in my grind. Find the bottomless set up which came with the unit (from CCI) more appealing than the double basket setup. Usually only have one cappa and one espresso each morning but so far I've been adding a third (espresso) each day in an attempt to play with grind and dose. The Rocky and the Silvia Miss Audrey have been sitting on a shelf for years and the MCAL sits in the kitchen unused. The Rocket takes up too much room in my small kitchen so I put it just outside into the dining room and let the drain run into a bucket. I fill it with poorover method as I did not hook it up to the plumbing. Don't have questions yet, but felt I should actively participate at this wonderful site.
