Oh, yeah, the club is great for groups-and Americano's, but the Cremina is my girl...The club is a very good machine - smaller basket size 45mm vs Cremina at 49mm. Both great machines, but The Bezzera may be pulled soon.

I posted it to unveil my world debut of two items. My preferred tamper, consisting of a long bar for extra control. AND, the sliding bean doser, which is still in it's prototype stage.

I am not breaking in to your house- that tamper is a killer! And I am glad you spared me the question about the wooden contraption behind the grinder 8)

;>) we are brothers of tinkering! Keep us informed on the project :wink:

A work in progress...

There's a major in the basement getting a major overhaul - wish that were done already!

Cheers to all, I like to see folks that have a nice place to enjoy their machines! I sometimes envy you the space!
Just an average day in the life of my counter, Cremina across the room by the sink. Faces change as I try new things / machines to enjoy. :)

I think the Ponte Vecchio Export would fit nicely between the Bezzera Family and the Cremina - just a coat of orange paint. What a three-group!

Bricoletta and my doserless Major. Knockbox sits in the drawer under the machine to slide out whenever needed. System is plumbed/drained to a utility room directly beneath in the basement. Milk products courtesy the bar fridge.

Surprised how I have never missed having a sink nearby.

Edit: Updated picture to new one....

I thought about getting all the kit/players together for a group photo, but gas is so expensive nowadays. One day I'll get the Silvia/Rocky team together, and all the tampers, cups, frothing pitchers, and other paraphernalia together for a 'family photo'.

Man that is a set of vicious looking "guards" on top of the microwave! :shock: Of course that just prepares you - kind of - for the espresso factory in the next shot-- Cannon Fodder blows me away with members of his army- - but your troops are some big, big boys! Hats off- EYES RIGHT- SALUTE :wink:

Settle down Francis... Here they are, Major Decaf and Major Espresso, posing a bit...Image

I have a tray that fits the SJ under them (and both are now sporting Mazzer's cutdown version of the hopper and I'm still looking for a cover for one of 'em) and would like to try and find a Major version of this, or maybe two. I'd be happy to part with the SJ version if I could find a pair of Major sized trays.
