    Hi KF,
    I’m looking at this Vibiemme. How does this compare to Oscar Nouvo Simonelli since it is double the price? Does the coffee taste two times better?

    Do you sell the HX version and how much would that be?

    Ryoji,

    The Appia 1-Group cost around 12K. The Domobar Junior only 7.2K. It is totally a different category man. Domobar Junior is a professional machine. The Appia is a commercial machine.

    On the other hand, the Domobar Super Double Boiler (DSDB) may be comparable to the Appia in a certain sense. DSDB surely looks better. Espresso extraction may be superior. Steaming power, Appia is definitely better. But the DSDB only cost RM9500.

    And you have to plumb in the Appia unless I am mistaken as well as the Appia taking up quite a bit more room probably on the bench top…

    In terms of extraction – is it fair to compare the VBM with a fully commercial machine like the Appia? The Appia having a bigger boiler etc may be more temperature stable?

    Bigger boiler give advantage to milk steaming. Can serve higher volume.
    When it comes to brewing, it is a different game.
    Domobar Super Double Boiler comes with a dedicated boiler just for the brewing process and it is PIDed.

    * Actually the steam wand on the Domobar Super is really nice to use. Silky microfoam easily. But if you force it to make 20 cappuccinos in 30 min, then got problem lah. Recovery of steaming pressure no fight compare to Appia.

    Hi all,
    Any idea where I could buy a Domobar Super in Malaysia?
    Used to have a Pavoni – but it broke, only 3 years old and the central electric system is already falling apart. Not recommended!
    Much appreciated

    Best regards,
    Jesper

    Hi KF,
    I’m staying in JB,Work In Singapore,everyday traveling in & out. Visit H’Lander every month, As i know there are 2 model of home espresso machine from VBM; i) Domobar junior HX – SGD 2999. ii) Domobar Super Double boiler – SGD 3699. Thinking of buy one of the machine by this year end.

    Seek for your opinion:
    a) Compare Junior HX & DSDB,
    b) Compare Junior HX & Junior DB.

    Best regards,
    Grassman.

    Hi Chan

    What do you think of the Ascaso Dream series of espresso machine? I thought it looks very nice but not sure how good it is? Have you tried it or know someone who uses it?

  10. kfchan Post author

    Good things about the Ascaso Dream: Looks great, has a 3-way solenoid valve and an OPV.

    Bad things:
    Single boiler (about 7.5oz) means that you cannot use it well for even a small party. It’s gonna be brew, wait, wait, wait, steam, wait, wait, brew, wait, wait, wait, steam….

    Steam wand with an enhancer!!! If you cannot remove it or change it, then lousy milk is what you gonna get.

    Check out the video: http://youtu.be/J6dEuLR-vRA

    Unless it is really cheap, like sub-2K, it is not worth it. Get the Oscar instead. HX machine with a boiler almost 3 times the size of the Dream. Can make you really nice microfoam.

    Dear Chan,

    Thanks for running such an informative site and sharing your valuable knowledge.

    I am looking for a Rancilio Rocky and Silvia combo in Malaysia. Can you point me in the right direction as to where to buy one?

    Tried an online Malaysian site, but they were out of stock.

    Thanks a lot.

    Rectify is the story of a man who was sentenced to death for a crime he didn’t commit, and spent 19 years on death row before getting out. Much like in my own real life case, the local politicians refuse to admit he’s innocent even after DNA testing points towards someone else. In fact, there was so much about this show that mirrored my own life I began to wonder how much of my story had crept into the script

    Can you help me? Im looking for the jubi junior double boiler,cant seem to find it. Currently using the ascaso dream,pulls a decent shot but the steamer takes forever to heat up.

  15. Kek Yeong Shuenn
