Thx. It's a Bezzera Strega. Originally not my first choice when I was looking for a lever to replace a Quickmill Vetrano. I didn't know much about Bezzera and levers. Bezzera machines looked industrial and plain to me. Bad bias.

HB has a really good review and a long thread on the Strega. A solid machine with exceptional extraction control at a very reasonable price. After about 3 weeks I'm really liking it. It's like a really good fully manual performance vehicle. Once you get to know it and find a feel for it you start drifting around obstacles and finding power band sweet spots without really thinking about it.

Thx. They're walnut and an after purchase upgrade. I had lots of fun putting them on. Don't know why but Bezzera loctites their handles. An unexpected challenge. You need heat to soften the loctite before wrenching the original handles off. I think I used a breaker bar.

Just received my SS LMLM last week. Had some initial trouble connecting with IOT app, but all good. Steam pressure is insane compared to the Lucca M58, but wii get used to it. Very happy with this setup!

Yes, good eye. I have only broken one in 7 years, and replaced it. They have served us well.

new setup. started out 7 years ago with a La Spaziale Dream and a MACAP M7D and decided to switch it all up after the steam boiler failed on the Dream. Was waiting for the EG-1 to show up before posting. Just about complete, UNIFilter is still on the way but I'm 99% done. And I still need to build the under sink reservoir and stop re-filling the machine reservoir, got all the parts, just need to make it happen.
