    Caravel from Santa

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Santa just dropped off my unexpectedly early christmas present - a beautiful old Caravel lever machine in near perfect condition.
    He has travelled from his previous home near lake Como to my place in sydney and is just about to get a clean and rebuild once the new seals turn up from Orphan espresso in the states. I pulled two shots straight out of the box, still need to tweak the grind but still got great crema and a really nice classic lever espresso.
    I will post some beauty shots tomorrow when i am not so worn out from dancing around the machine grinning like an idiot.

    Nice one Aaron, it looks like its in great condition and if your "dancing around" was excitement and not electrocution thats even better.
