I know the machine inside and out as I have taken every part of it apart. I can tell you that the Appia I have performs very similarly to the Aurilia. It is certainly identically rugged, just smaller tank, 120v instead of 240v, and smaller group head. The head is plenty large though.

The head normally makes the temperature to be quite stable, usually within 0.4 degrees. But I modify that temperature by hand adjusting the pump pressure during the pour.
