Yes its able to do temperature profiling, i have been playing with increasing temp profile also, interestingly a increasing temp profile yields better results in terms of taste compared to declining. can search for this sutdy below:

Extraction of espresso coffee by using gradient of temperature. Effect on
physicochemical and sensorial characteristics of espresso
interesting...my experience with dark roast has been quite difference on the cremina (declining temp profile). Its a able to achieve that classic south italian style espresso without any unpleasant bitterness.

Seems the DE is a dream machine for experimenting....i think i'll get one

The picture quoted is not the r200. It is 45kg with packaging, so probably 30 odd kg once assembled. Can easily fit on a small table. But it requires a LPG tank.

Do you use water filter for your espresso machines? Like Brita, Cleansui, etc.?

Am using the Brew120MS for the espresso machine. Recommended by Jimmy Monkey. Can get 3m Singapore to install for you but for cartridges itís cheaper to get from webstaurantstore.com.

No problems with it after more than 2 years. Very easy to install and replace cartridges. It can last at least one year or when u reach 9000 gallons. Cleansui cartridge is more expensive.....

Not trying to sell the 3m brand but I have dismantled the group head before and there is no lime scale.

If you are not looking into direct plumbing your machine Iím sure 3m can recommend under counter alternatives.

Cleansui is probably the best I've tried so far but its the pitcher model. Not sure if the faucet one makes a difference. Can't taste anything in the water which is what it should be. Brita can still taste a bit of minerals.

For cheaper cleansui cartridges, you guys can get from Qoo?

I suggest that you specifically check with the producers if they really soften and how long can they be effective. Not all filters can soften.

I bought my softener from taobao btw.

Yes I find cleansui the cleanest tasting. But the cartridges sure are expensive!

Had a Brita but itís HB forums have mentioned that itís not suitable for machines.

How much was the unit and installation? Not looking to plumb in but rather use it as normal drinking solution.
