    Rick Bond - @coffeemachinist

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I just wish to complement Rick on his work done on my machine. I'd picked up a 1 year old La Marzocco GS3 which had been looked after internally however the outside was a little scratch up from home use.
    I called Rick and he was extremely helpful with helping me work out what I wanted done. He's professionalism and work done on my machine in my opinion one of the best I've personally ever experienced.

    I use my machine on my coffee cart I do occasionally and people know the machine from before and over the weekend just gone I got many compliments on the look of it.

    Anyone wanting something done I suggest you get your ass down to see him as you will be more than happy with his work.


    Regards,

    Chris

    Saw this one in the metal and sorry Chris, your photos don't do it justice .

    For mine, Rick is head and shoulders the most talented in Australia (and I am being conservative here) for custom work.

    The side panels are amazing and they look great from every angle. It was a hard choice on colour to be honest. Although i ended up going to darker colours I had all these different ideas in my head originally. Im glad i went with the look i did as I've used it for over 150 coffees over the long weekend and it still looks clean and I've not had to wipe much off.

    So i'm glad I went for the black base and grey side panels. hes advice on the cup tray and drip tray was to not go with the black colour as in time hot water will cloud the appearance after time. My mind forgets what the process was he did on the cup and drip tray was but it added a very nice contrast to the machine.

    I watched this on insta and was amazed at how good it looked. Congrats.

    Also have to second the notion that Rick is insanely talented.

    We are very lucky to count him as part of the community here.
