    1964 Boema 2 group Lever Espresso Machine

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Obscura has just taken delivery of a piece of Australian Espresso History. An original condition 1964 Bo-ema espresso machine. Said to be the second machine on the Gold Coast. It has been operating daily in the same cafe since its purchase in 64 up till 3 years ago when the cafe closed. In that time it has outlasted two modern automatic/volumetric machines!

    The machine is currently undergoing a full recondition to bring it back to its former shiny glory!

    Here are some teaser photos. We will keep you updated as we go along!

    Cheers

    Congratulations on the win, I would have loved to have got that fella myself, looking forward to seeing more pics as restoration progresses.
    Like to add I am looking for a lever machine myself for restoration, if someone can help pls PM me.

    Excellent find Thomas.

    Im sure the restoration of this bit of Aussie history will get a great following here too.

    I have a friend- a roaster by trade- who has one undergoing restoration. His only concern to date, I think, has been the asbestos insulation he found inside!
