Thank you! I hadn't made the connection to the space program before, but now that you mention it, it definitely fits.

I have always been a NASA fan and do enjoy slipping the surly bonds of Earth. Perhaps there was a subconscious connection that influenced me when making my purchase.

Just received my Super Jolly E from Prima coffee. Loving the speed and low noise so far!

I had a hell of a time dialing it in, needing almost 12 shots. I've never used a Mazzer before and was therefore unfamiliar about how sensitive the collar-adjustment was.

My miscellaneous shelf, Mazzer included a pretty nice (convex) tamper and tamping stand, yet I didn't get a lid with my mini-hopper. Lame.

Alex, let Prima know. They'll get it sorted out. I love the Super Jolly. The first time using it, it can be difficult to dial in, but I think being new to any brand of grinder would be a similar experience. They are consistent machines, though. I can now set-up an unknown mazzer and get it dialed in with just a couple shots. By the way, what a great view from your espresso station! I wish I could stare at something other than a wall whilst I make coffee!

Folks, here is my precious setup. Consists of:
  • Domobar Super DB
    Ascaso iMini grinder
    Scales for exact bean dosage :D
    Digital thermometer for frothing
Sorry for poor quality of pic...

I just ADORE my Domobar.
Absolutely microfoaming BEAST

Long term goals:
  • Place it somewhere prominent to show the world...not tucked away in the corner
    plumb the water in
    plumb the draining
(These are both features that the DB is fitted for...awesomeness...)

Also not pictured: La Pavoni pre millenium Professional that the Duetto replaced.


Randy, doesn't frying splatter on your precious? We have a kettle in similar proximity and it is always dirty from the fry pan

I'm a member long time and I've never posted here... Now that I have a renovated apartment and a space in the kitchen for me (wife is a saint, of course), here it goes...

Testing this ProM Espresso and using Elektra Semi with pressure profiling from a small board from Korea (PWM, of course, I was lazy to make something with Arduino)... These days I've used the Achille but it seems after some high pressure something is leaking. Not news... And the work in progress:

Actually one Mini Gaggia (yes, have another...), Elektra MCAL and Caravel are working. I plan to add a shelf above the whole counter top (160cm) and it could hold 4-5 machines.

BTW, I got this Faema Velox that I'm restoring and I plan to add it at the right corner, above the sink.

Day one of my Quick Mill Anita, Mazzer Mini E setup:

Supper happy with my new gear.

Kitchen island isn't the permanent home. Have a bar/buffet thing on order.

Not for household use?! I'm telling!
