I had the basic stainless steel, then I got the Rocket, which I decided was too narrow and gave away. I'm wondering how long the bar is on this one so I can compare it to the one I have.
Help me decide between this and the regular IV - are there any benefits to the standard model besides the slightly lower price? I guess it is not quite as tall, but I have owned an Expobar Office Control and I don't trust those tiny feet. I ended up keeping it on a teflon cutting board so I could slide it to the front of our counter for refilling.
One commenter suggested having the machine "set up" for espresso. What does this mean? Is this a real option? Also, the specifications say you can grind directly into a portafilter, but another commenter said he is grinding into a juice glass and then putting the grinds into the portafilter. Why would he do this?
