how about temp consistency at high altitudes? Does it work the same?

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.

		Weather changes may change needed grind but has nothing to
do with HX
		espresso machine shot temp. 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.

Without thinking about it too hard, altitude should not be a  
significant factor with an espresso machine since it is essentially a  =
closed system and, unlike a pot of water, it shouldn't really be  
affected by the local atmospheric pressure. 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.
