  • New Izzo Alex Leva owner

    Finally put some money down on the Izzo Alex Leva I've been lusting after for most of the year.

    Chris from Talk Coffee has shown me this beauty in the past, and the coffee coming out of this lever group is just stunning. Unfortunately I can't take delivery until early next year when we move into the new house, but the butler's pantry already has in-cabinet plumbing ready to go. Just need to hook up a filter, small hole at the back of the stone bench top and we'll be ready to roll. Hg-one grinder is well and truly broken in and awaiting the step up from the Breville dual boiler I've been using for the past three years. Pics when everything in its rightful place.

          Couple of nice shots and a few chokers. Will take a bit of time for consistency. Struggling a bit with the sheer power of the steam output after the gentle Breville dual boiler - not getting great microfoam yet. Going to take some practice.

            Looks awesome Mark!

            Remind me next time you're planning to pop in and I'll have you all fixed in 5 min.

            Cheers

            Chris

              Thanks Chris. I'm sure I'll start producing shots like you in no time.

                  Absolutely mate. Bit sparse on the other hobby front equipment wise, but Stuart is on the job!

                    Day two and significant improvements already. Have my grinder dialled in better and have dropped dose a touch. Radical change to my steaming technique has produced much better microfoam, though with room for improvement.

                      Nice buy! That's certainly on my list too. Haven't stopped thinking about it ever since Chris poured me a cup in his showrooms.

                        Maybe it's time Leon? http://coffeesnobs.com.au/sponsors/3...tml#post552371

                            Stop thinking Leon, just do it. It's a brilliant machine, and I'm getting consistency more quickly than I thought I would. That package with the Macap grinder is very sharply priced too.

                              I want to but I've got to pace myself. I'm curious, looks like you have a HgOne. Do you prefer that over the Macap grinder?
