Hi Michael

Welcome and there's no sitting up to 4 in the morning arguing with grumpy and opinionated old men allowed on this site.  :laugh:

Has Steg picked the next batch of cherries?

Haha thanks Chester!

We just got the last of the husks off Yesterday. Still got the silver skin on them which apparently means that they were underdeveloped but we'll see..

Great to see appliances having their trip to landfill postponed!  Go the mighty Sunbeam!

I'm currently using the Breville Barista, though in the past I experienced to use the newbielink:http://http://www.espressoperfecto.com/best-super-automatic-espresso-machine/ [nonactive]. It was also pretty great but it's really expensive.

I use this little pod coffee holder or whatever you call it. I like the way it looks and it's a little nice thing to have :D

Dont know how I missed this.

My current set up:

Coffee machine:       BFC Junior ELITE (rotary pump / dual water connection ie mains or internal reservoir, but I choose the internal reservoir).

Grinder:                   An older Macap MXA with cut down bean hopper to suit home use.

Roaster:                  In use at work 60 kg Brambati, 5 kg Toper, double barrel professional 100g sample roaster, and 5 kg antique (c.1918)  Petroncini/Vittoria (nothing to do with an australian coffee company that took their name from the brand of roaster they first used in the 1950's...)

Tampers:                Whatever I like the look of that works ok for me, but I prefer flat based over convex, and lighter rather than heavier;

Other accessories:   small nylon bread board used for tamping, as well as swirling milk jugs, a 600 ml  milk jug, a group head brush that doubles as a filter basket leveller. Dedicated benchtop area. Using filtered water from undersink filter set up.

Cups:  Only 2 for personal use, my fave cup and the wife's fave cup (dont anyone touch my cup  ;)). Traditional coffee/cappuccino cups for guests.

Coffee-related toys that get me into trouble with my wife.

Coffee machine work:       LM GS3...not a fan.....will probably offload it by the end of the year as I've been thinking about something else.

Coffee machine home:      To me it's priceless......KVW...can be temperamental.......but I love it. Took 6 years to find one.

Grinder Work:                    Switch between Compak E10 Master OD, Mazzer Robur-E, Compak F10 master OD - all are newish.

Grinder Home:                   2x Mazzer Kony-E's (newish).

Roaster:                            Custom Proaster 30, Joper CRS 30, Geisen W15A - all profile-controlled. A new roaster on the whiteboard after I get around to selling the Geisen.

Tamper:                            The Great Leveller Mk 2. Because my machines have a propensity to channel....or is it the operator perhaps......I'm always in a hurry and I love using massive baskets and coffee that is way too fresh !

@ mycuppa how are you finding the Proaster now you have had her for a little while, any nuances with the brand?

Some roaster setup photos would be nice from the two of you gentleman, Fresh Coffee would like to see the old Petroncini.

CC - RE: Proaster, I don't wish to comment publicly or privately about it as I'm sure my unique set of circumstances and experiences will be distinctly different to others - as will owners of other platforms and brands.

There is already too much rubbish, gossip and bitchy nonsense circulating within the industry......mostly taken out of context or discussed by people who don't have any real idea what they are talking about.

However, take comfort in the fact CRA are great at supporting customers (as you no doubt know already).

I also have two Behmor Plus roasters which in theory gives me 1kg combined roast output (although this exceeds manufacturer recommendations) plus 4x 3lt plus output cold drip coffee setups and 1 x 500ml cold drip coffee stations - combined with various pour over and hand coffee grinders, and a Hario coffee syphon, and a commercial grade deli grinder, in addition to my usual coffee setup - I use everything but the syphon on a regular basis - but now that I've cleaned out the shed and made room on the bench I'm guessing that might get a work out more often as well !
