Congrats!  Like your logic.  I have a friend that has the Andrea
Premium and I've pulled many great shots with it.  The rotary pump
will make an already great machine, even better.  The presurestat
upgrade is also a good idea, I replaced the stock one in my friends
machine a few months back

Yep.  I'm rather excited because I've not been having terribly good luck
with my Pavoni.  No doubt its a great machine, but I have having a heck of a
time getting any amount of consistency from it.  Sometimes there is no
resistance, sometimes a ton.  I'm hoping Silvia will help me actually
produce some good shots and in the mean time teach me enough to use the
Pavoni successfully.

Steve, what grinder are you using?  Do you measure the grounds for each
load?  Eliminating variables is the key to getting consistency, which in
turn should let you move toward the shots you desire...

Grinder: Mazzer Mini
Measure: I suppose by volume.  I just fill and tamp.
Interesting thoughts.  Maybe I should measure by mass the coffee going into
the puck.
