Seems really cheap for a dual boiler machine. Half the price of the next closest thing (Breville BES9xx series) and a fraction of the cost of an Italian machine.
Wonder who makes this for kitchenaid?
Found info. This is made for KitchenAid by Gaggia. It has the same internals as the Syncrony Logic series. So basically it is a cosmetically nicer looking machine than, say, the R5, which is plastic. But the R5 is a full automatic with a burr grinder and tamping machinism for basically the same price.
I actually just bought one of these last week. Red one. So far so good. Pretty good deal at this price IMO.
I had a Gaggia and loved the performance. My Syncrony lasted about 6 years. Honestly, that’s probably the longest living machine i have ever owned. Ive owned a couple Brevilles and a Nespresso over the years, and would totally go for this !!! I also have the Kitchen Aid Burr grinder that looks like the KA stand mixer…if you can find one it’s great!!
I would stay away from this one fellas, appears to have some major warranty issues and uses a design flaws causes leaks with a provider that doesn’t replace parts or offer replacements.
Is this 110v? Or can use it with 220v?
Your specs don’t speak to the coffee and espresso making abilities. How many bar pump? But, I’m really glad to know the WEIGHT. You know–since shipping is $5.00, not by the pound.
If it is a dual boiler , which I don’t think it is. You would be able to have the espresso going and at the same time use the steam to heat up the milk . I’m the video it shows steaming the milk for froth first and then making the espresso.
This is signs of a single boiler … just my two cents.
I had one of these for six years, replacing it with a Rancillio Silvia. I must say this is an exceptional machine, and its espresso capability is comparable. It is a dual boiler, though I found the steaming capacity is a little lower than I would have expected. It is beautifully constructed and very heavy duty. As with any machine, you need a good grinder, like a Rancillio Rocky, to get good results. Without a good grinder, the coffee won’t be any good.
seems pricey for an item thats pitch disses coffee shops.
It is a dual boiler.
A primary complaint about this machine is that it lacks temperature control. The pictured red machine has temperature gauges that simply indicate the temperature as “ready”. However, the pictured silver machine has temperature gauges with numbered temperatures.
