It all makes sense now
Yes that video was from the showroom at Bezzera Australia,  the place I purchased the machine from

My Strega was the first unit that was sent into the country for pre launch evaluation

Ha! Well there you go. So I guess my memory was almost right.
I love coffee. It's as simple as that.

Nice score Brett.
You guys have tempted me to consider an upgrade, but I have certain restrictions from the boss ladies.
A new grinder must:
- be as easy to use as the current M4D.
- be doserless. (non-negotiable)
- have minimal grind retention.

I have spent a lot of effort teaching my household to use our current setup. Single dosing with only minute grind adjustments was the easiest concept for all to master, so the new grinder will have to be easy to use.

On the plus side, with so many shops closing down, there might be a unit or two available in the near future.......

I don’t think anything out there is much more fit for purpose than an M4D.  This will need some mods for ideal work in the home but.... I just had to own one.  It’s as simple as that.

Here's my humble stable of the Compak K3 grinder and the Rancilio Silvia with Auber PID  :thumb:
Not humble at all - that’s passion I can see on the bench :)

Here are a couple of pics of my last couple setup

first the r58 with some custom timber additions, and recently upgraded to a gs3 also with custom timber panels steam lever modification and had it powder coated in black.
Absolutely loving the gs3 and the only other machine i can see myself changing over to in the futere would be a slayer

Grinder is a mazzer Kony E

Faatshank’s GS3. Nice pick up - very nice :)
I love the wood but I’m more of a stealth guy myself.
Here’s my latest gear. La Marzocco Linea Mini and ECM S64 Manual grinder.

just sold my rancilio epoca and picked up a verona la rocca expres e61

Not the newest machine on the market but it makes a cracker coffee with long slow pours no problem

just ordered pesado coffee handle and replacement shower screen and seal

currently running with a mazzer super jolly which although messy again makes for great coffee - also have a sunbeam cafe series coffee machine and grinder sitting on the bench for when I need coffee subito pronto!

Just picked this up over the weekend. It’s amazing and frustrating at the same time! You nail a shot on a certain profile. Then think, hey I’ll try a different profile. Gusher!!!! Back to the drawing board. It’s like owning 20 machines and trying to jump between them!
