Move over Rancilio Silvia, the Crossland Coffee CC1 Version 1.5 is here. And it's got credentials in spades: an innovative PID built right into the interface, thermoblock-enhanced steam and even more intuitive controls for perfecting your shot and keeping it consistently delicious. One of the biggest complaints espresso enthusiasts have about other machines at this level is temperature variance. The Crossland CC1 minimizes that variance with a programmable interface that displays the brew temperature right on the front of the machine. Easily discover the programmed settings you enjoy and keep them that way, no guessing games involved.
Features & Functionality of the Crossland Coffee CC1
- Installed PID: The easily readable PID displays the brew temperature predominantly on this machine's interface.
- Thermoblock-Enhanced Steam: Pulling water from the boiler and through a thermoblock means you'll be able to switch quickly between steaming and brewing. This also means your boiler is constantly being refilled during the steam function, so no risk of burning it out.
- Large Water Reservoir: The two liter water reservoir on this machine makes it easy to keep the shots and steam coming fast without having to worry about filling the tank every couple of drinks. Keep it clean, though, and don't leave water sitting in there too long.
- Programmable Pre-Infusion: Did we mention consistency? The Crossland Coffee CC1 has the option for programmable pre-infusion, removing any inconsistency by pre-soaking the grinds prior to extraction to make sure the most flavor comes out of your pull.
- Shot Timer: No need to use the fingers, or the "one banana, two banana" trick to time your shots, just watch as the handy timer on the CC1 does all the work for you.
- 58mm Portafilter: Pretty much the industry standard these days, this machine uses a full 58mm portafilter.
- Articulating Steam Wand: This machine makes it easy to get your pitcher in the right position for steaming your milk, as it can rotate easily on it's swivel base.
- Programmable Options: The Crossland Coffee CC1 has three programmable menu selections, making it easy to remove pesky variables from your brewing process. Sort of a "set it and forget it" type deal.

I think that the set up and training are key to start.
1st, warm the machine up. I let it come to temperature and then run it over the brew head and portafilter without coffee.
Then let it come to temperature and you're good to go.
I adjusted one of the PID settings to speed recovery. Otherwise the reheat was way too slow. I currently have p6 at 3, p7 at 2, p8 at 4, and p9 at 2. I can't remember the defaults. Anyway, using this technique you get a shot in about five minutes of flipping the switch.
Oh, for frothing, open the valve to waste until you get steam, and then put in your milk and turn back on. (Posted on 4/23/2016)
