Welcome Michael and Beltrán! (Good choice with the Profitec Michael! I bought one from Paul also and it has far exceeded my expectations for sure!)
Great to have you, don't be shy and post away! And yeah I use Tapatalk, really good, a few little kinks here and there but easy enough to use.
Beltrán maybe post your question in a thread of its own in one of the coffee topics, just so people will see it and hopefully try and help out :)

Hi All,

I'm new  :)

I started a thread labelled "New HX machine + grinder - ideally transportable" as I thought there was too much content for this thread.

Look forward to being part of the club!

Thanks KK. On that note, would you care to comment on the separate thread I started called "New HX machine + grinder - ideally transportable"? I would greatly appreciate any useful thoughts and feedback.

Hi coffee people, I'm a newby

Iv been trying to make good coffee at home for a while now but still just an enthusiastic amateur.
I worked in kitchens for 20 years so I got to drink a fair bit of coffee...

Now I'm an architectural draftsman in an office with a pod machine  :-[

My set up at home is
 Lelit pl41 plus t and a  Fiorenzato f5
I'm keen to upgrade to hx machine....

Welcome Mrh! :)

Yeah pods.. I've actually managed to squeeze a semidecent result (relatively speaking, relative to the usual pod extractions..) on a pod machine when on a Tassie devil scientific expedition in Tasmania. Coffee felt incredibly necessary for those grueling days haha, the normal espresso button was usually far too much volume liquid for the mere 7g or so in each pod.. I used two pods consecutively, and pushed I think the middle extraction button for the first, and the shortest extraction button possible for the second, both into the same cup, was the best I could squeeze out of what we had haha.

Anyways enough about that! Enjoy the forums!

Thanks for your welcomes guys,
Thanks kbean for the buyers guide, it is nice and concise with many questions answered.

Im trying to weigh up just how much better a shot I can get from an hx.  When I get my act together, I'm pretty happy with the double shots from the pl41plus
Possibly I just need an E61 group head to look at!

I'm glad you like it :)
I was in the same position many years back. I had a Silvia and was looking at a first HX.
I asked a retailer "will I notice a big difference between a PID'ed Siliva and an HX." He replied "if you have to ask that, you haven't experienced one."
At the time I thought that seemed a little salesy but when I got hold of my HX I quickly understood.
"Driving" an HX machine is an experience.
Single boiler:HX is like small hatchback:big V8.

Hi Fred and welcome!  Your shed has a second floor??  You'd better work out the picture thing because I'm intrigued and a fair bit jealous. Welcome mate!!

Hey everyone,
I'm new here :) and here is my first post.

Started with a Silvia and rocky
Got rid of the rocky and moved to a super jolly,
I move on to heavily modify the Silvia with every gadget and contraption I could.

In the end I couldn't do the things I wanted with it so I moved on to my next and current machine. The GS3 is lovely but i needed it modified to have the Strada gauge pretty much immediately. I also run a compak e8od. I hated the compak for a long time compared with the SJ but have now grown to love it.

oh thats a nice set up - must be fun to play with!

can you pressure profile with the paddle or is it more about controlled pre-infusion ?

Hey everyone,

Welcome CA :)
Nice gear.
Did you do those Silvia mods yourself? That reminds me of a heavily modded Silvia I saw several years back.
Cheers, Paul
