Hello all,
time for a small update to the equipment list.
I now have a Breville smart grinder, to go with the Macap.
A new espro tamp and some spanky new espresso glass cups and saucers.

You people are crazy.

All I have is a Lelit PL041EM, a Behmor, a Super Jolly, a Pullman Tamper, 6 x 70mL ACF brown cups, 6 x 90mL Duralux Glasses, 6 x 160mL Duralux Glasses, 2 x ~170mL ACF Red Cups.

Oh, and my new coffee bench that I had made up to match my kitchen.

Ok, I have a problem too :) - Not bad seeing as this obsession is less than six months old.

Bezzera Mitica, Mazzer Super Jolly, Behmor 1600, Pullman Deluxe Tamper

Opps I see it now... Toowoomba and that's a big cockroach under the kick panel, reminds me of FNQ  ;D ;D

Actually, in the old photo, that was my dog's Kong. I've since uploaded a new photo to replace it - it's probably cached the old one on your computer though.

I've lived in this house for 18 months and no cockroaches. It's only a matter of time though :(.

Yes I beat Wotb to posting !  One reason I don't post as much as he does is because he's said just about everything, except this :)

Machine: San Marino CKX
Grinder: Mazzer Mini manual
Tamper: Pullman Deluxe Redgum and black EazyTamp (personally I love the Pullman but Wotb prefers the black thing)
Roaster: 2kg Solar Autoroast

And I think we have about 70kg green bean to burn through still...

What you mean you don't get a word in edgeways... Next time he starts talking over the top of you... Just give him that look... 

That one that says "Shut-up OR go on a starvation diet !!! "  and  "I mean it"

Works for my wife  ;D

Starvation diet will be on me because he's the one who cooks at home  :-X

I guess that explains why Wotb is 'well-padded' then (and so are our cats) !  ;D

Must get some better photos of some of the toys, not with the phone camera. As to listing it out scary prospect it might make me think about insurance or replacement values ::)

Bezerra Domus Galatea

Mazzer Mini

Reg Barber flat base tamper

Coretto roaster

And of course jugs, cups, and other assorted stuff.

Have recently made a "successful" concerted effort to dispose of a lot of the unused coffee paraphernalia I have accumulated over the past 40 years. ;)

Hi everyone I thought this would be an appropriate spot for my first post, I just migrated here from that other forum.

I have a rather long list of equipment, and as I keep promising my wife, will one day trim it down but it instead it always gets bigger.  It includes:

Home: VBM Domobar Junior & ECA/Anfim Best Chrome Grinder & Sunbeam EM0480 for decaf duties
Office: Nuova Simonelli Oscar & Gino Rossi CC45 with electronic doser (i.e. push button doser and no lever)
Shed: Rocket Giotto PP (immaculate condition), La Pavoni Europiccola (resto job), Bezerra BZ35 (resto job), Nemox Junior (immaculate condition), Eureka MDMCA (considering repainting for fun), Isomac Professionale, Nuova Simonelli Grinta (been trying to source new burrs for months now).

Kind of scary now that I read back on what I've written.

Anyway look forward to blogging here and learning more about my obsession from you all

ahhh gear. toys. there's never enough is there?


Espresso Machine:   Miss Silvia
Brewed coffee:        Clever coffee dripper
Grinder:                  Compak K10WBC & Mahlkonig Vario
Tamper:                  Pullman Barista Convex, Deluxe convex, Espro Convex
Roaster:                  Genecafe


trying to decide what needs to be upgraded next .... roaster or espresso machine? I'm leaning towards replacing Miss Silvia at the moment

quoting myself so I can add in what I'm using at work -

Espresso: La Marzocco Linea - 3 group volumetric, PID, high cup, .8 restrictors
Grinder: Mazzer Robur-e & my Vario for decaf duties.

brewed coffee options likely to come soon ...
Miss Silvia + K10WBC & Abid CCD + Mahlkonig Vario = home deliciousness

realised have long neglected to add my home collection here:
main unit: Diadema Reale; when it's not working - which thankfully is not often:
backup: second-hand Giotto [not the 'Premium', the earlier model].
grinder: Anfim 'Best'

cheers

PS tamper - bit of a 'no-name' [heavy aluminium] I'm afraid

Hello
I remember when I first came across all these great coffee forums, the very first thing I would ever do is find the section where everybody showcases their setup. It
