My lever machine for local travel is a Faema Baby Faemina. I am really impressed by its performance. It brews a little cold, so light roasts tend to be a little sour, but it delivers great espresso when you use a "classic" espresso blend.

I used a lathe to alter the groove in the piston slightly. This enabled me to use a standard 46 X 5,6 o-ring as a seal instead of the original U-cup plunger seal which is hard to find.

That is such a great idea on the o-ring Baby Faemina mod. Wish I had tried it out before I sold mine.

So when is this happening again? I brought all of my levers even the ones I didn't mention lately... ;)

Finally, got a lithium battery, inverter and related electrical gear installed in the little camp trailer. Just did a quick test to see how the LiFePO4 200A battery (via a Xantrex ProWatt SW2000 inverter) powered the Ponte Vecchio Export; and it did it with aplomb :D. If you look closely you can see steam pouring from the steam wand/tip :D

Heading out for some remote backcountry travel, fly fishing and camping...and, of course, to put the espresso 'system' through its paces.
