Hi to all you espresso-enthusiasts...
My name is Kris and I'm from Utrecht in The Netherlands.
After a few visits to Italy and Rome in particular I got hooked up with the espresso fever.
After a long quest for the right machine for me I was disappointed to find out that none of the current models under 600€ suit my demands
I've seen a few successful restorations of older (semi)professional machines and decided to accept the challenge.
After strolling ebay and marktplaats.nl I found an ad of an old Futurmat Milady machine (build 20-feb-1996 I think) with two portafilters and an Anfim grinder.
I'll be busy this winter!
If anyone has information on any of these two machines I'ld be happy to hear from you!
I'm especially interested in:
- technical specs
- availability of parts in Europe an The Netherlands in particularly
- similar projects
- converting this machine from a "plumbed in" to a reservoir - type
Of course I'll show you the pics from the ad!
Owjeah..... and the best part: This deal set me back €40,00
