The current iteration:






The cabinet below holds all the other stuff. Coffee, more cups, portafilters and baskets, etc. Also a bunch more brewing devices. Overall I like the setup. I wish I wasnt lazy with plumbing and draining, but Ive gotten used to filling and emptying again. Currently the only reason I want to hook up a flojet is so I can do line pressure pre-infusion, far as filling the tank goes, I dont mind, I just top it off at the start. I do remember how lovely a plumbed machine was though.. soon Ill take care of it. So, yeah, thats the current setup. Who knows what Ill change next.

-You might notice Ive gone a little scale happy.. Yes, this is true. The scale with the white bowl is AC powered, its for weighing beans for brewing, and checking the dosed PF. The Hario scale is used during the brewing process. And the 2kg AWS pocket scale on the right of the duetto, is for weighing extractions. There is another pair of scales tucked away that used to be used for weighing the beans for single dosing the K10, which I dont do anymore.

Thank you Gary! I'll make sure to update it regularly. I think I should actually change the title of that thread to something more appropriate since I've answered most of my questions.

I've been a lurker for quite some time and have drawn inspiration from all the posts on this thread. I'm glad I finally brought up the nerve to create an account and give back to the community!

Cheers!

Sebastian
Full stop. No half measures. Thankful to be in such a supportive community.

My new work setup. I just got this vintage (circa 2006) La Valentina off of eBay, and it shows almost no wear whatsoever.
