Hi guys ive got an ECM Technika with rotary pump, havent plumped it in yet and just upgraded the grinder to the Eureka Atom
I consider my gear to be a "double boiler" setup, although it isn't really ;-)
In the middle is my Quick Mill Alexia Evo which I bought a few months ago and which is currently my main machine for espresso. On the right is my Elektra Micro Casa a Leva, which I now use mainly to steam milk (that's why I consider both to serve a sort of a double boiler machine). Also pictured is my Compak K3 grinder.
Setup in the kitchen with the new kid EK43S Black, ft. Rocket Giotto Evo plumbed in with Everpure water filters and drain to the kitchen sink next to the machine. Retiring Macap MC4 soon, next goal probably a GS3 or Linea Mini
Refurbished BES920XL with Rancilio Rocky(skipped the Breville Smart Grinder) paired with a pesado tamper. Love the daily shots pulled, easy machine to work with.
New Niche Zero, but this just about sums up the equipment. Got a few tamper's and milk jug's, a Behmor roaster too.
the collection of toys or as i like to call them, tools of the trade, keeps growing.
Pesado modular portafilters, 1 x naked 1 x double spout
Pesado depth adjuster tamper
decent espresso baskets
decent portafilter stand
tiamo dosing cup
scott callaghan dosing tools
cheap ebay distribution tool
Have another 3 tampers retired and the 2 original la marzocco portafilters also retired.
All items in the pic are in current use.
Have a couple new side panels for the gs3 also coming shortly, and hopefully that should be it. (yes i know, famous last words )
got a phone call today from the coffee machinist to say my new side panels for my GS3 are back from the anodisers and ready to pick up.
Only 4 of these panels in existence i believe, billet aluminium and hand polished.
They turned out an absolute treat, and thought it was something completely different from the usual timber which i have been use to now for a long time.
The beauty with these also, is when i get sick of the colour, just a quick strip down and anodised again in any other colour i may want
That is amazing. Blue being my favourite colour maybe makes me bias. Strangely Iím not a fan Iíve learnt of wood but that is just what Iím interested in.
New machine arrived today. Have a new Knockbox etc to come through from the USA.
Great future wife I have as we were late to a family dinner last night so I could unpack it when I got home. Few shots late last night and this morning.
Doubt it will be any better than my ecm synchronika I had but I love the style of this machine.
This customising becomes very dangerous and expensive
