  • Barista Towel Hook

    I might get one of these but my machine sits a bit back on my bench and Im trying to work out how it would look if hooked to one of the legs. Does anyone have a photo of one other than the stock one used to advertise it? I see various sponsors have it for sale.

    I have one on the work machine that "sits a bit back on the bench". It looks ok and still works fine.

    If I think of it today, Ill snap a picture for you but I say just get one, theyre not all that expensive and they do a very handy job.

      I tend to hook them under one foot of the grinder. Keeps it all neat and they dont rattle around as much

        Not a bad idea but $35 plus post 10 mins in the shed with a length of light stainless should see the job done.

            Yeah- I was pretty surprised too. In the good ol days when they were introduced at the coffee academy, they were $15. Times change I guess

                How about a large safety pin?

                Or for the handy-person, a safety pin and a bit of ribbon. ;D

                    Im sure thats true in terms of function but I do like the aesthetics of a coffee machine and its related items. Im not sure Id want a safety pin with ribbon tied to it hanging of a $3000+ coffee machine.
                    I think theres lots of things such as tampers, knock boxes, levelling tools, brushes, and cups, where people pay over the odds for things where they could have paid an awful lot less and still got the same functionality.
                    It is expensive perhaps for what it is but its not going to wear out and itll serve a useful function.
                    I like things that look nice. A sponsor has ordered a Reg Barber knock box for me and I could have probably gone to Bunnings and bought items that would have served the same function for a fraction of the price.

                      I use these generic towel hooks from Howards. $4 for 2. They attach by double sided tape to edge of kitchen cabinet, then u can squish any towel through the holder.

                      I guess it all depends on position of your machine. It does need somewhere u can attach them and if you have a nice/new kitchen the double sided tape might be a bit of a problem. Luckily for us we have a daggy old kitchen and my machine is at the end of the bench so its quite convenient.
