    The madness continues...... with upgrade photos

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    What is it about this addiction.... !!!
    That forces normal rational people to go out and spend money on shiny toys they dont need , but lust after.

    It just makes no sense ,.... but still I did it.

    ah .... when will this madness ever cease ? Im not loosing sleep from too much coffee , Im loosing sleep about the next bling upgrade........ enough, enough , I tell those voices in my head * :-/

    Oh well here it is.... the setup *in an undersized kitchen to start with , and a very tolerant wife *( I think ).

    The new addition is the BFC junior semi auto , & a set of Lateral filing cabinets.. ( which will get an artistic make over soon ).... The cabinet is brilliant , 3 huge draws. Top draw has Knock box bin on one side , cups and sauces on the other *with tea towels.
    Second draw Espresso tools cleaning brushes and products, spare PFs, Tea towels in waiting , and mini vacuum cleaner .
    Third draw Coffee supply with roasted beans in various *ages *of development , and roasting data sheets ..... Very handy.
    Plus we were already setup with the twin cunhil grinders and the VBM Piccolo......

    Hmmm... your case is serious. Very serious indeed.
    I suggest radical therapy; the VBM Piccolo has to go. Just pack it up and send it to me. I will dispose of it free of charge and you will once again be normal.

    And as a psychotherapist, I will be happy to take your money for reducing the cravings for shiny things.

    Congratulations HS.

    Now, it seems like just about all the VBM Piccolo owners have succumbed to upgraditis (aka the Magpie syndrome).

    I blame Buschy - he started it :).

    Hi Warren ,

    Your a lucky man , I had to drive to Brisbane to pick it up.
    Thornside if I remember correctly.
    The gentleman concerned is a dealer , but I told him what I wanted, had to be H/Duty and certain HxWxD approx,straight , no dings , etc ,etc... 3 weeks later he rang back with the goods.
    Its 930 H x 900 W x 500 D Aussie made "Schevillo" and weighs heaps.
    Cost was $150 ..... he had similar for $70 + but made in China and felt flimsy in comparison.

    Id suggest you ring Greg .... I just checked with him before posting his Ph #.... 0417 638 789 ... He has none at the moment but will look out for them if he knows your interested.

    We are considering a couple of make-overs for it. Either a coffee theme , or a Pro Hart rip off of desert scene and ants , or a Ferrari theme , I have always like the adoption of industrial fittings for home use.


    Cheers
