    Cheesecaked Steam Wand

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I just had to share this picture of a Lelit that's currently on the market... check out the steam wand. I wonder if the Camembert adds any flavour to the latte. Have you ever seen anything as bad as that?

    For a comparison, here is what the wand should look like.

    Looks like the one I saw in the Cafe at La Cité du Vin in France, I took one look and said 'Un expresso, merci'

    You're game - if that was what the steam wand looked like, imagine what's behind the shower screen!

    It’s okay as the seller presented it wonderfully on a sheepskin rug hahaha bet the ad says something like always looked after or well maintained.

    Surprisingly honest: "Used Coffee Machine Spare parts or repair required. Coffee Machine does not work.*2010 model."
    It reached $155 on eBay! I'm guessing it was never descaled or backflushed, and the group got blocked with coffee resin and sludge, or perhaps our friend neglected to refill the boiler whilst becoming fixated on the marvels of their wand crust, and fried the element, or most probably both. What a waste...

    Just when I think I am sometimes a bit harsh about 'the great unwashed' along comes something like this.
