Topic: Rancilio owners on the list? (3 msgs / 98 lines)
1) From: michael brown
Does anyone one the list own a rancilio?  If so, what kind?  What do you li=
ke about it?  What don't you like about it?  I'm contemplating a purchase a=
nd have found some good prices by a local rep.  Don't know much about the b=
rand though.  If you own one can you give us a review??
Thanks so much!
Ohhhh and i should add something else.  I got an Estro espresso machine as =
a kind of "tradition" when i attended the SCAA show from a fellow SM's list=
er.  I'm thoroughly enjoying it.  Making some good shots.  Does this compan=
y exist anymore?  I think i remember someone saying that Estro was bought b=
y someone else.  I'm not finding much info online.  I actually went through=
 two tampers before purchasing the right size.  So i'm more curious than an=
ything else about the Estro's...anyone else got one of these?  Anyone know =
if they are still being made?
I'm thinking about making a short lil video of my espresso pulling process =
so you's guys can critique my process and offer insights on how i could do =
it better.  I'm pretty happy with the results and have read the tips and tr=
icks sheets on Tom's site and others but am always looking to improve my cr=
aft.
One shot at a time,

I have an older Rancilio S24. It's great! It steams fast and quiet, makes
great espresso though I found it is possible to go too fine and tamp too
hard. I didn't think it was possible with professional equipment. ;)
It pops and creaks a lot. There's a lot I don't know about it or
professional equipment in general. Need to learn, need to go to coffeegeeks
and post my questions I guess but who has time for all that?

The folks I bought my Nuova Simonelli Aurelia from also service Rancilio,
though they don't speak highly of them.
Personally, I have no experience with their commercial machines.
La Marzocco is what I have also had good experience with. Very easy to work
on.
cheers,
Scott
