how about temp consistency at high altitudes? Does it work the same? 2006/9/13, miKe mcKoffee : <Snip>
Specific required routine may be slightly different, but it would be consistently different for a given HX machine with a given boiler = setting at a given altitude.

If you can count from 0 to 10, you can have HX shot temp consistency from ~206f down to 196f in ~1f increments on demand. Doesn't matter if you're pulling one shot or one hundred shots back to back. Simple, and verified numerous times with Scace Thermofilter.

Of course, it's not completely closed all the time and I'm just starting on my first cup of the day, so I could be wrong. John Blumel
