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.
Just make sure by cheap you still mean fresh roasted quality espresso blend.
Yes, i you per this on an iPhone

There is a blend I can get with Robusta vs the all Arabica bean version. I would not be consuming it beyond a taste. Mostly for initial grind sizeing to establish timing and liquid volume of spring lever from bottom to upper raised position.
I don't do well with Robusta beans as the added caffeine has an effect on me.
Hate to throw out good arabica just for testing purposes.

What is the tiny square machine next to the Sama Lusso?

What I WOULD do for a good cup of coffee!

Looks like a Spanish made Campeona; and is that a Sama or the Bezzera?

That is a Campeona Modelo 5. One of the more rare machines that I have come across.

The machine is actually and Ater Family, although they are pretty much identical.

I find it amusing that it arrived with the lever handle and side handle in the wrong spot!
