I started off looking at bean-to-cup machines and it now looks like I'm going down the rabbit hole. Let the ride continue!
Definitely not like a kettle, think of it more like turning on the oven and waiting for it to come up to baking temp, about 15-30 mins for most Dual boiler machines to be temp stable enough to make good coffee. It all depends on what you and other coffee drinkers in the house want, if nobody wants milk drinks, don’t buy a dual boiler, if everyone wants lattes, a DB or Heat Exchange machine could be your best bet.Definitely! Been looking looking for a dual boiler system at the moment but still not very well versed. Do you know how quick it would take usually for the water in the tank to reach temperature? Does it take quite some time to heat up or is it similar to a kettle?
