    Zebrano bling - so nice. I have some serious bling of my own on the way. Not saying what it is but I will say is isn't wood.....

    Jeepers!! That's quite the upgrade. I would say they must be paying you too much but if you're gonna risk your hide everyday at work you should be fairly compensated. That is one very nice looking unit.

    Aaaaaaahhhhhhhh...... Upgraditis. It's unstoppable. I have had my "dream machine to keep forever" more than a few times now. My wife always reminds me of this when I change. My recent changes have been to a slightly cheaper machine, and to cheaper grinders so I guess for me it's now changitis.

    Recently moved and the Bezzera and SJ are fitting right in to the decor. (although the SJ is not exactly fitting in the space)

    Wow - tight fit. A 300 or 600g hopper will fix that up

    I picked up a dirty old Gaggia Classic for $60 recently. It had been in storage for 2 years with the PF in place.....WITH COFFEE STILL IN IT!! Seriously, what's wrong with people. Anyway it took some work to detach the dispersion disc from the group head (that involved a bench vice and a rubber mallet), but I got there eventually. Thankfully the rest of the machine is in great nick and has cleaned up nicely after a full rebuild that included an OPV adjustment and steam wand upgrade. It's currently my home machine while my Brugnetti is at the service centre.

    You're very welcome. I hope you get those super gloopy shots and that silky milk soon. Great choice on machine, grinder and bling.

    G'Day fellow coffee snobs, first post and long time lurker, thought I'd post a pic of my machine and accessories. Been making coffee for while at home as my first machine was a ECM Giotto around 15 years ago and only now updated to a ECM Elektronika Profi 2. Plus had the ECM Best grinder with my original Giotto purchase and will likely update next year? Any grinders recommendation are welcome

    The current ECM grinders really are excellent.

    It might just be a low res pic. I personally hate picture hosting sites that require you to log in to view the image and on general principle I refuse to use them/log-in.

    Using an image hosting site to put pics on which are then linked to from here is generally a poor option as when the pic is removed for whatever reason (It ages out, the company goes bust, whatever....) it then becomes unavailable here. Which is why it is much preferred for people to attach their pictures here, which MFR can do after making a few more posts. That way the picture will always be viewable on the site.

    Thanks for the thanks. It's an awesome machine. This one was fully modded by Rick (The Coffee Machinist), then shipped to SA.

    Well this is my learning machine. Practicing with Aldi beans at the moment. And if you guy think these beans are bad I can't wait to taste some of the beans from the roasters on here

    The work rig.

    My pride and joy, Kees van der Westen Mistral series 1, no. 32 of 116 and restored / customised by me with input from Kees. Next to it is the 'Bond Villain' mark 1 grinder, a BNZ conical flipped upside down and reversed. It's early days but the start of another cool project!

    Ah geez Matt...

    You've gone and made me drool all over my keyboard...
    Wish I had some of that biscotti to take my mind off the cleanup.
