  • Did you know?

    I have been watching a DVD I got for Christmas called Living Coffee by Paul Bassett (2003 World Barista Champion). Whilst I think the camera work is a bit to be desired (I think they are trying a bit too hard to make it similar to Jamie Olivers style show) I am picking up some interesting bits of information. (Whilst not that important to most people) it is stuff that I think CSs like to know.

    I would like to start this thread as a Did you know? topic (all relating to coffee of course)

    My first Did you know is;

    Did you know that the E61 group head was originally developed by Faema in 1961 hence the number 61.

    No. That explains the 61 part.

    I wonder where the E comes from...

      The E was just from the Model number "Faema E61".  It was developed by Carlo Valente

        E = Eclipse of 1961 - total solar eclipse visible in Italy in 1961...

        or I could just be making that up

          No, that is correct.

          I have a genuine 2 gp E61 and a 3 gp E66. The E66 is virtually an E61 but with a totally different, later style body shell around the front section of the machine.

          I think you will also find the E61 design doesnt just represent  the development of a particular style of grouphead on its own. It was a breakthough in commercial espresso machine design and the entire concept is basically the mother of the modern commercial heat exchanger machine.

                Some viruses are able to withstand extraordinary environmental conditions, from temperatures well below zero up to a couple of hundred degrees the other way. I wouldnt want to be a guinea pig anyway ,
