I have been a lurker too long. Here is my Cremina with her best friend.

Some drink coffee to wake up. I wake up to drink coffee.

:shock:

Great score Vincent! What's the serial number on the group, since these were upgraded from La Pavoni Europiccolas? Please show us more photos of the heating element when you have a chance. I didn't know they replaced that part.

unfornately, the serial number is the nightmare of francesco! :mrgreen:
the seriel number on the group is 0731. or, if it is a pavoni's number , this is not really coherent.
Because francesco has a pavoni. number 600 of 08.1961.

the miracle would be to find these machines

Vincent, if you look closely, you'll see that the first machine you linked had a sightglass. Yours is earlier. :D

The heating element looks unchanged, but it's got a fancy bottom cover.

For the serial number, maybe La Pavoni did a special production of 250 machines for "Olimpia" Express, started them with a zero and with numbers beyond 500 to distinguish them from La Pavoni machines.

Zacconi riviera eagle Chrome + Ascaso i-Steel 54mm Flat Burr



Just purchased the grinder. Still toying with optimal grind setting. Going to have to get me some cheap coffee just for grind dialing in. :wink:
Call me vain wanted a matching look to the machine/grinder and the Ascaso fit the bill and produces a good grind with this machine.
Between order and chaos there is espresso.
Semper discens.
