    My new coffee bar table

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi guys. About to set up a new coffee bar at home.

    The bench is a thick solid slab of teak. Approx 1900 length 450-500 wide

    Will be sitting on two solid slab legs at around 900 high.

    Once it's set up with all the gear in my little home cafe set up I'll post some more pics.

    I picked these little beauties up from an importer that gets the timber from Lombok Indonesia.

    Gorgeous slab of wood!

    Unless you're tall, 850mm is a good height for a coffee bench.

    Aim for a right angle at your elbow when you're on the portafilter.

    I'm 6.1". The machine is currently on the kitchen bench and that's at 900 high so all good I think.

    This way I can sneak two galvanised tolix stools underneath too

    My new coffee bar table

    Just about done. I also secured the legs with some brackets underneath (cannot be seen).

    Just need to wire everything up so cables are out the way and it's ready to rock and roll.
