Thank you! Wouter is taking off for vacation, so lead time is about 8 weeks.

I was thinking about it since a while... I just pulled the trigger. I am excited and the wait will be sooooo long.

Congrats! Going to be a long wait, but certainly should be worth it. Good to buy a hand-crafted product like this from such a stand-up guy.

My 6 week wait for the CT-1 has turned in to three months...supposed to have shipped out Friday. Be prepared for a bit longer wait than expected, perhaps. Hope it got shipped out before Wouter left town...

Expect it all to be worth it when it arrives.

Well, it's not like I don't have espresso setup at home. I can survive a few weeks. I expext to receive it in somerhing like 12 weeks. Not too bad for such a nice and beautiful handcraft lever.

Looks like you have a couple of nice options. Will be curious of any thoughts you will have comparing the CT1 to the MCAL.

Yes, I would like to keep the MCAL too, but I'm not sure I will have room for two levers on the counteer top. My wife like the CT1 ( in picture), but I would be surprised if she would be willing to share the counter with two levers.

I hear you there, mine liked the CT1 as well. I've been very curious to try an MCAL, perhaps one of these days I'll come across the opportunity.

Cheers.
