    One I didnt know about....

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    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...)
    Bigger Boiler
    Rotary pump
    Switchable plumbed/tank

    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...

    Maybe Chris,

    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 :-?,

    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 ...

    Correct you are- the update replaced the wands (now cool touch) and handles with Giotto Premium style stuff....
