Through the counter Espresso set up ??
Anybody know what the brewing equipment is in the new Espresso bar (Silo) in Manley.
I just caught a glimpse of it today, but could not stop to investigate or try.
They appear to be just E61 groups on "through counter" up-stands, with the main machine hidden under the counter.
Much like the "Modbar" system from the US , but this is different in appearance.
Certainly a very different ergonomic layout to any other local cafe
This looks awesome! Probably a more intimate barista/customer environment as a result.
Hmm...no place to hide my phone whilst making coffee - wait..did I just say that out loud?
Just kidding. Looks awesome. Much more incentive to keep your area clean and tidy and a unique experience for the customers. Would love to see a shot counter in there somewhere
Very cool. Who makes them?
OK, at the cost of a few coffee's and a friendly chat,.. i can reveal what this is..
Its an "Espresso Deck"
and made right here on our doorstep apparently .!
It really does make the cafe more like a bar to sit at and chat to the barista.
just to complete the picture,..
they also had this beast on the counter..
LM "Volcano" grinder.

This is along the same lines, but even nicer.

You most certainly did, however, I suspect Feuoros may well have a vested interest, its his first and only post, promoting a product with a live link to a non sponsor.

Its a "commercial" spec machine, very rare, so most likely custom built to order..
... you would probably need a commercial grade cheque book too !
