    Improvised Milk Jug

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Brought the coffee machine away on holidays but realised this morning I forgot to pack the milk jug. Normally the milk jug gets used 3-4 times a year at my house but there's a couple of extra people on holiday who think coffee only comes with milk. Found this in a drawer and made do. No latte art today but we'll see if I can improve over the next week or two. I think it's actually a milk jug but meant for cold milk.

    Yep. The descale access ports in the front make draining boilers for transport a breeze.

    Here's a fun story on this topic. A customer brought his Oracle to me for a repair and drained the boilers before transport. Unfortunately, he drained them when the machine was on.
    Once I completed the planned repair, it wouldn't heat past 65C or so. Sure enough, blown steam boiler fuse.

    Turned a 1.5 hour repair into a 3 hour repair.

    Anything will do the job really. Iíve used plastic and glass measuring jugs before and even a mug one time when there was nothing else.

    I was actually looking through the mugs trying to pick the best one when I found this.
