  • Yet another happy VBM Domobar owner (pics)

    Ive been talking about it for more than a month now, here and there.
    Chris from Talk Coffee has been very patient with me.
    Well my funds finally came through and now I have, proudly sitting on my kitchen bench and serving me the most delicious coffee, the
    Vibiemme Domobar Super Lever Stainless Steel.

    A little pictorial of my excitement.

    All images are at 640 max, and all images are thumbnails to larger (1200 max) images.

    My wife and I went to Melbourne for a few days. One of the stops we made was because of a recommendation from a good friend, that I should go to see Erin Sampson from Pressings. So, not sure where to get off the tram, we jumped in a cab and found ourselves there.
    By the way I highly recommend the fruit toast. 2 pieces filled me. And 2 coffees of course.

    The first round...


    The 2nd round...


    And Erin at work


    So having phoned Chris from Talk Coffee on Friday afternoon and made the payment, then going to Melbourne, I arrived home on Tuesday afternoon.
    Came in the back door. Dumped my stuff. Opened the front toor to find this


    Looked so good, had to go for another angle


    From paying on Friday afternoon, it was on our doorstep in Tasmania 48 working hours later. Got to be happy with that!!!

    So we got it inside and unpacked it






    Now its time for the old guard to step aside...




    And the new guard to proudly take its place...













    So lets see what its got...




    Now, time to celebrate in style...


    I now have a bottomless PF care of coffeeparts, and today my water filter arrives from Bombora.
    While in Melbourne I also called into Veneziano and had a great chat with Craig. Picked up a couple of jugs and a knock box.
    Now all that is left is for me to shake this head cold so I can appreciate my coffee a bit more.
    And to buy the new Pullman tamper when it is available.

    A very big thank you to everyone at CoffeeSnobs for offering me advice with all the posts throughout this forum.
    And again, a special thanks to Chris. Thumbs up, mate!
    Ive been doing a lot of reading and had nearly decided on the Giotto. I am sure I would have been happy with it, but I just love this machine. I can already see so much potential.
    The crema that pours from the group head as the extraction takes place is just amazing.
    I thought I was getting good coffee from the old machine. I suppose I was - but there is a quantum step between good coffee and the great coffee this machine has the potential to produce - I can see that already, and I have a lot of learning to do before Im pulling anything near god shots.

            I was waiting for that about TNT. :-)

            Having used the VBM in question, I agree it is a fantastic machine and is on my shortlist when I can afford it! [smiley=tekst-toppie.gif]

                  Yes, but if you note the 4th photo, TNT are now using dogs to do their deliveries. Obviously an improvement ;D. (Hope you gave him a nice tip - soup bone, dog biscuit, etc.)

                  Seriously, BEAUTIFUL looking bit of gear there, Adam. Congrats.

                    And judging by the 7th photo the cat unpacked it - couldnt wait for a machiatto I bet.

                      This is my first post here, so not sure about the protocols—can the OP indicate the approximate price paid? This is the machine my lady and I are looking at, but we do not have a clear idea re. where to source yet. We live in Canberra. TIA

                        Hi there
                        Site sponsor CosmoreX Coffee are located in the ACT.
                        Try them or you can try the same supplier that Tasadam used, Talk Coffee, also a site sponsor. I have used them on a number of occasions and i cannot give them enough praise. Chris from Talk Coffee will give you superb unbiased advice on all things coffee.
                        They sell interstate and as can be seen by Tasadams post everything went as smooth as it should.

                          Youve done two things correctly so far.
                          Firstly, youve decided on a fantastic machine, and secondly, youve discovered CoffeeSnobs.
                          On the left is a list of site sponsors, and as indicated, there is a link there to Talk Coffee.
                          If you visit this link, you will find a link to "other Specials" for CoffeeSnobs members from Talk Coffee.
                          There was a VBM there a while back but I cannot see it now - doesnt mean you wont get a good price for a great mechine.

                          Thanks to everyone for great comments on my newest member to the family. Ill keep this thread updated with my world of discovery with it.

                              Shared madness just isnt madness at all surely.

                              If Id taken pictures of mine (yes I would have loved to) Id still be locked outside, but Id be drinking good coffee though.

                              Good job mate !
