I recently got a La Marzocco Linea Mini in matte black and Mahlkonig EK 43 grinder.
I have added a Luminaire shot timer to LMLM, and some walnut customizations from Pantechnicodesign, plus a black drip tray and aluminum high legs.
The entire setup is placed on a kitchen cart retrofitted with industrial casters (600lb capacity), purchased from Overstock.

I will detail my experiences so far in another dedicated post.

Hi, I'm on the fence between a black and SS Mini. My concern is whether the matte finish on the black is difficult to clean and if certain oils and dirt are hard to clean off. What has your experience been?

This morning set up with increased height allowing for added scale under cup.

Also makes it easier for cleaning and viewing shot.
Between order and chaos there is espresso.
Semper discens.

Very happy with the black...no issues.

I always forget you can adjust the height of the boiler on a Faemina!

Hi there!

This is my first time posting on HB. I've enjoyed looking through this thread in my downtime over the past several months, and I love looking through some of the rebuilds you all post in other threads. I work for an espresso machine retailer, and my setup is ever changing, as we get to loan out equipment. Currently I'm having a blast with the Profitec Pro 500 PID and Ceado E37S.

Thanks to three incredible Craigslist scores my entire rig has transformed in three weeks time from a Gaggia Classic and Smart Grinder Pro to what you see below!
