I've tried both the Bezzera Strega and the Ponte Vecchio Lusso - both managed to produce better tasting shots than the visual characteristics of the pour would have suggested.

Achieved more easily than my pump machines too.

That's bloody nice.

The ribbed (for her pleasure) taps are quite striking!

I'd stick the little pointy ones in the drawer and forget about them  :rofl: Maybe use them for earplugs. Great lustre on the handle

Huge weekend ahead of us.... I've roasted some of Beangreen's latest COE special today so they should be degassed by Thursday arvo after 3:30 if you're around.  Any time before 6ish unless you want to get dinner for the kids  :rofl:

Gotta tell you... the wife had her misgivings about the 'handle' but she's admitted that she likes the feel and is glad of the knob on the end because it helps your hand not to slip off.  Her words as God is my witness!!!!  Once she realised what she'd said she went redder than a beetroot and said if I facebooked that she'd cut off my nuts.  Lucky she's not a Crema member eh... or is she... ???

Two projects currently in progress in our workshop.

One photo shows mystery machine No1 at first look inside before starting any work. Machine has some "nice" (and I believe quite acceptable if an older machine is to be placed back into service) mods under the bonnet where they cant be seen and therefore dont infringe on the original look. This one wont be "rechromed" or "newified", its condition is good enough that cosmetically it only requires a clean up and will look great in virtually as original form. The condition is as it was pulled from a fully working cafe environment about 8 years ago.

The second photo shows some "bare bones" work we have done to mystery machine  No2 which is in "bottom of the harbour" condition. The brass bits are leaning on the machine's boiler, the over pressure valve is also lying there. The rest of the machine is all over the workshop in various stages of repair, and the body will need to be rechromed (unfortunately). I prefer good original if old condition, to "I restored it to within a millimeter of it looking as if it came off the production line this morning" condition, because the kind of finish you can end up with today is far superior to the original new look and can just make them look too new.....destroying the old world charm.

Dont take any notice of the rubbish pods at the back of the photo. A client supplied them for testing purposes of their notgoingtomentionthename pod machine that was brought in for repair work.  It's income, and we dont turn hard earned away...

OK, i'll play since no-one else has had a guess, mystery machine no.1 looks to be an old Boema, can't figure out mystery machine no.2, maybe some more parts pics?
I'll also attatch a pic of a home lever i picked up recently, but awaiting delivery

Mystery machine number one.
Is that "CREMA CAFE" on the perspex?
I have seen one of these before, but cannot remember the manufacturer.
There are photos of this machine posted elsewhere on another forum I believe......

Seeya,
I was thinking of a La Carimali, but not the model you referenced to.
I do recall Fresh Coffee mentioning that he had a lever that he "might" be persuaded to part with, on a thread somewhere her, but memory fails me as to which machine he referred to. He did say it was in good condition, so it might be this machine.

Yes the "Crema Caffe" perspex is the giveaway on the Bo_Ema...

The other is not the Granluce which will have to wait a while. Decided to start on another one that we have. We are a bit miffed as to how we are going to get any parts for it as it is extremely rare. Cant even find a photo of it to help with the resto. Note rarity doesnt mean anything is worth anything much....just that something is rare! Although if we ever decide to sell it, I guess we will hope that it fetches a nice price.  At this stage, no plans to sell either.

Wow, WTF is that hand grinder ? Home made jobby ?

OE Pharos.  Great grinder and with a few mods even better!  On Home Barista voodoodaddy has some mods that make the Pharos really shine.

Posted speed limit, 186,000 miles per second, "because it's the law".  I think I need more coffee to get there :-)
