    Invisible Oscar ?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    There is an add on the Brisbane "Eucalyptus" site for a NS Oscar with a fully transparent casing !
    Apparently it was a special edition from NS . ?
    It certainly is unusual and a novelty being able to see all the internals as you brew.
    PS..I have no connection to the seller.

    The title got me interested my wife would love an invisible machine on our kitchen bench. I dont think the terms invisible and trasparent are iterchangeable.

    Its definitely a cool idea - but surely only for a coffee nerd. Im sure most would think it looks uglier than even a normal Oscar, let alone shiney bling of an E61. The Maling Room in Melbourne has a lever machine with a transparent case. Very cool.

    The orangey tinge of the case makes it look dirty and plastic.* If it was a real clear glass-like plastic or even real glass moulding with some strategically placed etched stainless plates to contrast the glass effect and some internal mood lighting I think Id buy it* ;)

    Yes, it seems the temperature / UV / Coffee have taken their toll on that plastic.
    Doubtful that it could be cleaned up or restored to original.
    It was probably impressive when new and crystal clear.
    :o :o molded Glass ! ;D .. wow yes that would be something ..and a little pricy to make i suspect !
