Welcome mate.
I love Tassie - especially that overland track :)

Getting upgraditis and looking at good lever machines - up to the new fancy profiling machines.
If I can help cure that upgraditis get in touch. My K Bean Dream Machines website is right here: www.kbean.com.au

The Profitec Pro 800 is amazing. Here's a YouTube link showing me pulling a Pro 800 shot: https://youtu.be/OM9N385V0BQ

Take a look :)

Jeez, isn't coffee a tropical crop? I think limited to northern Qld etc if at all in Aust. wouldn't it be? I wouldn't have thought there would be any way short of a lit & heated greenhouse to get it to grow in Tassie and that would be very expensive. That ad was probably just for Tassie roasted coffee.

K Bean, been looking around your site. The Profitec 800 does look nice. Also seen that the (much more expensive - around $9000) ACS Vostok 1 group is coming soon (pre sales on some sites). Then I saw the ACS Vesuvius for under $4800 and it's interesting, but the Home Barista review didn't compare it well against the Profitec 700, but I suspect a bit of fiddling with the profiles may have changed that result.

Welcome mate!  Agreed that as far south as norther NSW would be coffee friendly but I'm happy to be wrong.  My big issue with the ACS machines is: insert Obi Wan:
(he's more machine than espresso maker), but that's an argument for another thread.
