Want to talk espresso but not sure which forum? If so, this is the right one.

the host trade show is coming up in milan. this huge event is held in odd numbered years and is one of the more important gatherings for coffee trade folks.

if anyone will be attending perhaps they could post a report(s) and /or photos here at h-b.

thank you,

I'll be taking loads of pics but probably won't be able to do any posting until I come back the weekend of the 27th.

That VBM is huge! Is that a commercial single group or something special, or is it a play on perspective and Angelo is standing further behind that machine than I think?

hv has posted this album of pictures taken at the sunbeam of australia booth: ... 811273657/

they are demonstrating a dual thermoblock home machine.

alan frew wrote a detailed review of an earlier edition of this product at his excellent site:

sunbeam of australia is a separate entity from sunbeam of u.s.a.

hv reports he still has about two hundred more show images to post. check the thread again later.
