Re: Wow, maybe some men really ARE pigs

Although the world is a much scarier place nowthan in 1980, so I am not sure it makes much of a difference. No one should have to endure that kind of harassment. The reality is that it is much much safer now than in 1980. The 80s were the worst, violent crime is now at all time lows .And if you are...

20-30% expansion is nice. thanks, good to know.

Oh, I'm just a nerd with too much time on my hands. I used to have an entry level espresso machine and did a lot of research before buying one.

Re: Coffee lovers... would you pay $349 for this machine?

Dee Jay: I believe the Aeroccino turns itself off when it reaches a certain temperature. So you may be able reduce the time that the whisk is spinning by zapping your milk in the microwave. Also warmer milk won't foam as much, so I think it should work. The milk should not be hot, just slighty warm....

Re: Thoughts on Costco Diamond

Right but if I use the % of crown and pavilion I get 1.0 on HCA [61.4% depth, 57% table, 14% crown, 43.5% pavilion, 0% cutlet] If i use the angle I get 2.0 Yes, that is true. However, you should not make any distinction between 1.0 and 2.0 without an Ideal Scope or ASET picture. The price is good.

Re: Coffee lovers... would you pay $349 for this machine?

You use aftermarket refillable pod thingies in the Senseo, I believe. There's a rule in espresso: spend half your budget on the machine and half on the grinder. The Costco Saeco machines are "automatics" with grinder built in, you just push a button or two and things happen by themselves. ...

Re: Coffee lovers... would you pay $349 for this machine?

350 for a Senseo??? That's not a good deal. $100 would be good. And the Senseo takes their own pods. How will you get the pods if Senseo is discontinued for the US market? Do you drink coffee or espresso? If you want the fake crema, any espresso machine with pressurized portafilter will do that for ...

Re: ACA Princess faces up small

No, the 1.544 round and the 1.815 princess have the same surface area, so they will face up the same size.

But the performance of the round will be stronger and may give an illusion of facing up larger.

Re: next steps beyond the HCA tool for 2.8 to 3.0 stone

The ACA is really nice.

The next step is to ask for an Ideal Scope picture or ASET picture, a regular picture may suffice if IS photo is not available.
