+2000

I just received my gaskets from steve96822. Looking forward to tomorrow's morning lattes, the first ones with the new gasket.

Re: Vivaldi Pheonix

Ha, I do still have them. It's taken me a very long time to find them but I did tonight. I haven't been on here in years! Years! Which isn't to say it's not valuable but rather that my restoration went so well that I'm now going on 8 years of daily espresso with absolutely no trouble. That's pretty...

I apologize, I had moved the pictures, and broke all the links. They should be back up again. Good luck!

Re: S1V1 Motor

First remove power from the machine. Then take the inlet and outlet fittings off of the pump. Then remove the pump/motor from the machine by unscrewing the four small nuts located on the bottom of the machine. You can lay the machine on its side for this. gschroeder81, Is there any chance you still...

Re: Vivaldi Pheonix

Gregor, Me and many S1 V1 owners will be glad with you :) Bumping this thread in hopes Gregor still has his photos. Our 2004-build S1V1 is headed for some TLC. It has been absolutely flawless but it's definitely time for an overhaul. I've been busy reading through all the maintenance/restoration th...

I *think* mine's on order - submitted it the other day but haven't yet received an e-mail confirmation. I'm jealous of the folks who've already received theirs!

Code Brown

I got some time yesterday to play with temperatures a little, as I was using up some old Code Brown to test the Espro tamper and re-dial-in my grinder for that blend. Now granted this was old coffee (12/6 grind) so I wasn't expecting much in the way of taste from the shots. One thing that was clear ...

Hi Chas, I wish we'd been able to use the S1 at our normal "rate" - we were out of town for an extended weekend so many fewer shots pulled and pitchers steamed than usual. I did get the opportunity to make lattes with our Saeco Gran Crema (and Braun burr grinder) in the motorhome to remind me how mu...

Installed! Initial impressions/results (long)

A minor shipping issue - the boiler gauge wasn't centered in the opening - it had slipped down. We had to take the front panel off and re-align the gauge. Also, my Estro tamper was nowhere to be found, so I sent a note off to Chris. Steve (husband) almost regrets saying he could plumb a machine in ;...

Chas, Well I am forever grateful that you took that step and got the S1. Between this site, Bob's posts here and on CoffeeGeek, and Dan Kehn's review and Buyer's Guide article, I knew the S1 was the right machine for us and the only place to consider purchasing it was Chris' Coffee. As the newbie, I...

I asked Chris about this when I ordered my S1 last week. He said the change back to 20 Amp was as simple as flipping the 15/20A switch and replacing the plug on the end of the cord. Since the units all start as 20A models (his techs do the swap to 15A), all components are properly rated, including t...
