Crema Machine

5 stars

After doing exhaustive research on the espresso machine interwebs, I called Clive. Ben, Adam, Victoria, and the crew at Clive, introduced me to the A53 Mini! I received my beautiful machine yesterday, perfectly packaged and issue free. I set it up, and was pulling amazing shots in about 15 minutes. Took me a few shots to dial in my grinder with my favorite Chromatic Gamut Espresso. Once dialed, amazing results! After taste testing several shots, and then a few more, I went out and did two PR's on Strava, and completely rebuilt my mountain bike, I guess caffeine works! The steam wand is very powerful on this machine, it produces beautifully frothed milk in seconds. The bottomless portafilter exposed many of my tamping flaws; I'm now producing MUCH better shots thanks to it. I'll update this review once I've had more time with the machine. For now...I'll hang it up and see what tomorrow brings. Bravo Clive!
