1) From: Sue
Bob, or anyone else with an Andreja! Has anyone connected their
machine to a water supply and a timer? It sounds perfect. I have a
couple of teenagers that are already sucking out all my hot water for
hot chocolate! It seems like I'm filling the machine a lot between all
the espressos and the kids hot water! Otherwise, I'm really enjoying
it. It came with some strips to check our water, and it seems to be

Check out Terry's Silvia auto-fill mod, likely can adapt method for Andreja.http://www.terrystockdale.com/coffee/journey_6.shtmlIf you have problems, send your Andreja to me and I'll do the mod. I promise 
to get it back to you in a year or two:-)

all that bad if you drive!   Serious SHOPPING!

Mike, just a year or two? I would have thought you would need it a
little longer! No, really, I appreciate your help. I just wish I lived
out there near you guys so I could go to your gatherings and learn how
to really use this machine - you know, from the pros!  It's kind of
wierd, but fun,  learning this stuff on your own. Kind of like taking
on-line classes!

Thanks Dennis, I do drink Americanos. It's my #1 drink. We have
several tea drinkers in the house also. Lots of hot water use around
here! I have already packed up my water boiling pot to take up to our
little cabin in Canada!
