Best not to think about that...

My metal guy has very high standards for looks so if I did rechrome I would expect nothing less than flawless.

My 2 group is still in production. I could ask Roberta to have it plated but I will keep it bare copper. I like the rugged appearance. I ordered the panels to be hand hammered copper too.

Why did you decide to get a 2 group? Do a lot of entertaining?

Probably it's overkill John. There is 3 of us, coffee drinkers living together. In the morning when we leave out together at the same time, there is a little wait with a single group. I initially ordered single, but then found out that the price difference was relatively small so changed to two. It takes extra space but not that much more. I'm not very experienced, but I thought 2 groups can give even more thermal stability due to boiler size, when pulling more shots.

I don't know if the thermo stability of the one group can really be improved. It's pretty spot on once the machine fully warms up. With 3 people wanting drinks at the same time the 2 group will be more convenient. Looking forward to seeing some photos.
