Pleased to see this thread alive. Update on new plumbing and a slightly more convenient espresso station. Especially pleased having combined inlets and drains for the dishwasher and the coffee machine properly.

Did you have an oven and stove there at one point? Are you using the outlet for that oven for the machine?

Hi Ryan Lee, Yes, I took out the non-used gas cooker, as we have a combi-oven on the left, outside the picture. Suddenly created a lot of space. In my old configuration photo, which is somewhere in this thread, the coffee machine was where the white dishwasher now is on the left. It was more cramped. I was stupid to have been hugging a cooker that never ever got turned on. I do have an inability to dispose old unused things. We use the combi-oven 100% for the last few years.

I will be buying a matching MDF board to cover the pipes underneath the coffee machine as there is the usual 55cm appliance gap underneath it!! So there is a gap on the sideboard right under the coffee machine. The legs on the coffee machine rests on either side of this 'gap'. I was embarrassed to show that bottom part in this photo.

I'm a long time admirer of this thread but this is my first time posting my setup. I've made many changes to it over the years but I think I finally have it dialed in (for now.)

:) It helps when the wife drinks more coffee than me since she quit smoking! Kitchen has become gadgety, thankfully the rest of the house has her feminine touch I guess.
