No photo Chris :-?,
With the recent shortage of machinery, I have had some time to do a little research and the Giotto has done a fair bit of work as a demo machine....which started me thinking...looking...and then an attack of the dreaded "upgraditis".
Id thought about the ECM Veneziano A1....given that the Veneziano did soooo well in the Australian Barista Comps....oO( A rotary pump would be nice....) and was heading in that direction....What would have been missed was the much loved lever operated E-61 group and I wasnt really all that crazy about Volumentric...
Whilst getting an update on arrival of a few ordered Giotti (Is that the plural?? *;) ;D), I mentioned the Veneziano....and the response was "Which one"?
Little did I know that there is a Veneziano S1....Imagine:
E-61 Lever and Giotto premium style wands and handles (updated since this pic...)
All I can say is *:o.... SOLD!
Ill feedback when it arrives.
FYI all stock of the Giotto will be back to normal in a couple of weeks but a price rise of around 4% due to increasing metal prices seems unavoidable...
No photo Chris :-?,
Not sure why Mal- a forum thing?
I tried loading the JPG file from the link in your post and this is blank too..... might be worthwhile trying to attach it again perhaps :-?,
Nope Mal- no matter what I attach its no go....perhaps the forum is short on space?
Dont be a tease, please can we have them photos loaded. Forum managers unite, must see... :(
Just post it up at www.imageshack.us or similar and give us the link here.
Seeing the photo of the S1 must have something to do with the browser youre using. Using IE on my laptop I get a missing picture icon where Chris has inserted a picture. Using Opera, I can see the picture.
Beats me.... *:-?
Tried a few different things including imageshack....with no success. The trusty old snagit solved the day :) Image now up....
Interesting ... photo seems to be quite old; no burnless steam wands and funky valves ...
