    She oozes with style Ben. And if all the feedback and reports Ive read are just partly true, her performance will match her looks.

    While the Expobar has and continues to be a great little performer, I think the Elektra will be better. ;D

    We wanted a machine that would really stand proud, complement Dudley, and the feel of the shop. The Elektra Classic Barlume 2 Group with 13litre boiler, mosaic green fits the bill and when this one became available I couldnt resist (remember, Im "attracted to shiny, colourful, and often expensive objects").

    Im hoping shell arrive late next week and once she does, will possibly tweak her a little.

    In the meantime, were having some electrical work done so that there isnt a blackout throughout Sylvania when we fire her up.

    Were also going to change the counter to either a genuine antique Arabian shop counter or reproduction of a turn of the century French design Ive seen. I guess this means it will be a little while before the Elektra takes over work duties, but the wait will be well worthwhile.

    Thats a beautiful machine Den and will fit in very nicely with the cuppacoffee decor.

    Pity it couldnt be available for the launch tomorrow


    Whats happening with the Rancilio? Does that become your dedicated mobile barista unit now?
