Re: Dream Orders On Temporary Hold

Hmm, never had any issues either - and I'm with PyroKerry on this one. I'm a "Threshold B" owner.

New Precision Shower Screens / Baskets @ CC

I'm just wondering if anyone had bought the "new" bottomless PF from CC with the precision basket; Mary says they are laser cut now. I have the same bottomless PF that they've always sold - with the standard triple basket. They also have laser cut shower screens. https://www.chriscoffee.com/La_Spazi...

Re: A Leak/Drip from the..discharge valve?

Great! Sounds promising - mine did come with a "steel wool" like material stuck into the end. I assume that's what you mean by the mesh.

Maybe I'll take some time out next weekend to install it.

Re: A Leak/Drip from the..discharge valve?

Chas - I did see the knobs, and the screws on top after you remove the tray; will have to look again at what I might have missed the next time I remove any panels. So, back to the OP - Tim from service sent me this fix; a new discharge "head" with a small plate welded on to divert flow. Haven't trie...

Grinder Cleaning Routine/Frequency

Did a quick search on this but came up empty; was just wondering how often people cleaned their grinders - meaning hopper removal, take out the burrs, sweep it out, etc. I single dose with my Vario, whenever I stick my face in it to smell/check my wife just stares and it smells fresh. Once in a whil...

Re: Setting up my new Dream T

Chas is right - it took me two full weeks to accept that wet pucks aren't bad, and that how it actually tastes is what matters. I also came from a super auto, and it gave me really nice dry pucks.

But I bought the dream for the coffee. Not beautiful pucks.

Re: A Leak/Drip from the..discharge valve?

eph85 - It's not hard; I found this "issue" day one, and I was pretty scared I'd break the machine taking it apart. I still don't know how to take off the side panels; almost got them off but I must be missing a screw somewhere or I just am too triad to pull harder. Anyways, there's one screw that h...

Re: Filter Alarm

Chas, Version 4 of the Dream T's user manual on CCS said by default it was 27 gallons - its on page 9: http://www.chriscoffee.com/files/124/S1+Dream+TankR4.pdf I then tried to go back into the filter menu but I couldn't make any changes. Interesting part is that today it now says 22 gallons, not 3. ...

Filter Alarm

Just wondering about the "filter" setting on the Dream T; I thought the default setting was 27 gallons if you clicked this option on (per the manual on CCS. When I went into the filter menu to reset it, it looked like it was defaulted to 3 gallons. I couldn't figure out how to change it. Anyone know...

Re: Double and naked portafilter problem

I'd agree with most of what's already been posted. I just got the Dream T, but it uses the same baskets - 14-15g dose gets me a small indent in the puck from the dispersion screw. I can't imagine cramming another 5g of beans in there.

Something with the Steam Boiler

Thought this was the best place for this post - had the problem not really "resolved itself" I would have certainly made a call for help; thought I'd post here to share the tale. It's been about 2 weeks behind the Dream T and the experience so far has been fantastic. I've dialed in a coffee or two, ...

Well - here's what I came up with, cut from a piece of plastic from a book/binder.

So far - a tremendous improvement. Nice and dry!

Re: A Leak/Drip from the..discharge valve?

Ah - neat, thanks! The tube in the Dream is slight different - it's held in place I think by a bracket, and there is a right angle fitting that diverts (poorly) the water down into the drip tray. Maybe I can lengthen and drop the tube right into the drip tray. Service dept at CC seems to be solderin...

Re: A Leak/Drip from the..discharge valve?

I gave Tim in the Service Dept a call today, and this is now a known issue and something that they are working to correct. It seems that the discharge tube/valve directs the discharge too forcefully, and therefore not 100% ends up in the drip tray. They are working to produce a part that will better...

A Leak/Drip from the..discharge valve?

My Dream T arrived today...and it's a little larger than I expected (yes, can't wait for my wife to get home and see it). Got a little late after the unboxing so I only attempted to dial in Chris' Black Pearl espresso blend to the point where it was drinkable; I'm sure there are lots of parameters I...

Re: Setting up my new Dream T

Dave, Well, I think my boiler was only half filled - the pump ran for about 8-10 seconds before I saw any water drip out of the group head. Didn't have any trouble at all navigating the menus, but the last menu option for me is "Factory." I can't seem to find the option (in the menu) to go to 15 AMP...

Re: Setting up my new Dream T

I'm supposed to be getting mine today too; expect to see it on my doorstep when I get home. I ordered the 20 amp version as well, but I intend to plug it right into a 20 amp circuit. I'll see if I run into similar issues with the menus. Looking at the user's manual (from Chris' Coffee) it looks like...

Same here. Should get it next Monday (Colorado).

How do they ususally ship? On a pallet? Crate? Something along the lines of direct signature required?

Re: S1 Dream machine Now taking pre-orders

I know mine hasn't; Mary left me a note this morning saying they had some challenges installing the preinfusion chambers at factory (at my request). They have a call into Italy and are waiting to hear back. This is the chamber getting installed as an option on the Dream T.

Re: Info From Chris

What's in the cup is what matters. That said, I'm glad I checked here again before committing. Was going to order a Vivaldi (upgrading from a super auto) and I think I need to at least see how the Dream prices out. If there's a significant cost between the two, it might not be worth it for me, as I ...
