    That looks absolutely stunning, I've been thinking lever upgrade lately, the VBM badge got my attention. Any more info/specs?

    No details at all yet.

    Looks like it's being launched at Trieste espresso at the end of the month...

    Hey Chris

    Did VBM ever release a single group of this lever? I'm hoping not if you get my drift...

    'fraid not Javabeen. I did see the 2 group at HOST in October. FWIW, I'm still a massive fan of the San Marco group over the CMA group. We both have Izzos to prove it

    Cheers

    Worry not- we have more and I'm sure that when it does go, there will be something just as good to follow it.

    I have generally not been a fan of Brazils as singles- but I am now

    Yes ditto, this one has changed my opinion of good quality Brasils.
