That's a puzzler alright. I was trying to figure out if he's making a statement on the equipment quality or something.

Hello there.

Thanks again Frans, for the beautiful story!
I know.. the plastic tamper is a disgrace...
Been neglecting the tamper issue for quite some time.... I urgently need to get myself to the Lathe, and make some proper samples!
But a custom tamper will come standard with the ES3, and it won't be plastic!

Hehehe that's a relief--I thought the statement was you were going to do the same thing Italian makers did...offer a plastic tamper! :lol:

Mmmm... Yes.
I could live with such a machine. Wallet emptied, order made. Now planning the rest of the rig @ work and how to mount it to the work bench instead of the wall. It shouldn't be too hard, my main problem with that is that I keep getting too many "cool" design ideas for the bench mount...

Was gonna get an HG-1 for the savings, here's hoping that they will be making them next year too...

Wouter, better than the tamper would be a nice stand to hold your beautiful machine... for all the world to see on a countertop! :)

I think the music is Herbie Hancock on Blue Note with Dexter Gordon. It is Herbie's first album, Taking Off, with Watermelon Man.

I want one of those ES3s.

The machine looks superb -- congrats and well done Wouter!

Has anyone got one yet? If so, how are you finding it? I might have to try and get my hands on one when I move to Europe later this year i think :D

Yep, thanks Frank for the hint. I was off. It's Driftin' by Herbie Hancock from 1962. Let's assume this does not refer to the temperature stability of the machine;)

Here is a post on the es3 blog about why he switched from countertop to wall after ES1:
