Hi

I am seriously considering this machine, but I have some questions.

The machine stands about 15.5" high. The space under my cabinets in 18" Is that enough? Will the machine get too hot in that space? Will it emit heat from the top and damage my cabinets?

Also, how long does the machine take to warm up and be ready to deliver espresso. I don't want to wait when I need my first coffee of the morning!

Thanks,
Stephen

You will have plenty of room.  Like most espresso machines it takes a while to get to temperature.  It does not take long for the boiler to say its at temp, but it needs to warm a good 30-45mins.  Just buy a heavy duty timer and plug it into that and set it an hour before you will need it.  The top of the machine does not get very warm.

Answered in the first post! Just make sure the timer is capable of 15 Amp service; I think the CC1 uses about 10A-12A but you always want a little buffer in there. Like bossman said, you want 45-60 minutes of heat up. I set my timer for 30 minutes before I wake up, which is 45-60 minutes before I'm ready to pull a shot. It works very well for me.

Right before the shot you will want to run a blank shot through the portafilter to heat it up, and the water will also warm your mug. Grind while the boiler recovers.

This is what I do. I single dose, so I pull a blank 1oz or so shot (PF still in), turn the grinder on grind, and then dose and tamp and go. Right back at temp and the metal/brew path is stable. All machines need a flush right before use, h/x need a cooling flush, boiler machines need a warming flush to make sure the group is temp stable.
