    Lusso restoration complete

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Just ran the first gind after a few months of bringing the lusso back to its former glory....

    Its been fully stripped down & cleaned, new hopper, doser glass, burrs, aluminium doser polished, timer replaced with a backlit on/off switch, and a respray in metallic silver / black.

    What a difference to the Rocky; it really puts it to shame.... Nice fluffy uniform grounds and absolutely no clumps.

    The only downside is the amount of beans it gobbles up initially before the chute fills and grounds start to appear. The doser works well and even the counter works!

    All I have to do now is finish off the M27 and they should make a nice pair..

    Nice resto there Borat! Shes a beaut!

    Is the doser lever blinged out in gold? Or is it just the reflection/lighting doing weird things?

    Nope, not quite gold... hehe I think its maybe some sort of brass alloy. The handle was originally chromed, which was flaking off. When the doser came back from polishing, they managed to get the dregs of chrome off the handle and the brass colour was what was left underneath.

    Anyone know if the top of the doser glass is supposed to have a plastic flange / ring for the lid to sit in? My lid looks almost too small to fit on top of the doser.
