Although I can't get there this year I love looking at the exhibitors :)

I want a popcake machine :D

Oh and those chocolate on a stick things, they look cool and so easy to make hot chocolate happen  :)

Probably decide the day before it's due - if I can remember :o.

I've decided not to enter this year.  I'd only send Monsooned Malabar as an espresso roast anyway  ;)

Not sure how safe it will be to use in public a few have owned up to wanting to "borrow" it. I think I now might have sufficient Pullman tampers too, at least for a while :)

I intend to visit the costume shop to pickup an outfit before my unannounced visit to Kitheouse Port Fairy in Jan at which time there will only be 1 objective...............grab me that TAMPER.

C'mon Timbo, how about we setup a time-share arrangement - you can use it in Summer and I can use it in Winter.

I'm dying to get my hands on one......can I swap you a medal ?

Might consider swapping you for your old clapped out Giesen  :rofl:

Time to dust off my wireless security cameras and logger  :D

Tap, Tap, Tap ..... Well it is finally in the mail I am led to believe so there may be a chance of me getting a slightly early birthday present instead of a Christmas one  ::)

A photo will follow along with the fitting of the safe under the home coffee bench ;)

Slow mail in this part of the world. The GB Tamper has at last joined the other couple of Pullmans I own and has gone straight into service.

Theft protection measures have been made with the safe to be fitted this afternoon  :)

Looks like a gathering of mushrooms  :pan

If you place in a  "secure dark place"  (safe), do they  breed  :stir

I can show you the son of a gun love children of my Pullman collection if you like. I have accumulated 3 or 4 more of the worst tampers in the world to go with 6 of the best  :)

Time for a proper clean of the machine and grinder too looking closer at that shot  ::)

Nice Tim.  The base looked a bit gold in their promo shots, but it does look nice on your bench.  Did you get it sized with a basket?
