Thank you. I look at it every day - sounds sick but its true ha ha ha! I would love to say yes or that it is at least on the bench getting some TLC but the bench is full. I have a Zacconi getting work done and then there's some drama (or was) with my Elektra Mini Verticale which will have a thread at some point. It had been literally dropped on its head by the movers and had a surprise or 2 more once it was figured out how to straighten the base.

I am finally back in the US! I arrived six days ago but I only was able to go up to my storage unit and retrieve my espresso equipment used in college yesterday. It about an hour drive from where I live, and I was presenting my senior project to my advisor where my stuff was located so it was very convenient for me to get both of them knocked out at once. I needed to change the Elektra gaskets and had to leave my Eureka due to its size (I could only fit so much in my car) so I brought back my trusty Lido E. The final countdown for my Bosco has started, probably to arrive within two weeks! I am currently helping my family repaint and recarpet the house, so the MCAL will be well used during that time :wink:

I'll throw my portafilter in the ring

Looks like it was time for some machine maintenance.

As someone who advises and examines a number of senior projects each year, I can suggest that you continue to give equal weight to academic and lever pursuits - the two are far from incompatible, and for many they are mutually-dependent. My Exports have stood me in good stead as office mates these 15 years, from PhD student to senior researcher. I can't tell you how much I value the calm, 10-minute espresso pause I take two times a day - the backbone of the workday really. Each experience a little Torna a Surriento, a moment of reflection and revitalization.

It's been a while since I last posted but I figured I'd put this up since I have 2 machines I'm wrenching on for the summer. The orange Cremina will eventually find it's way home to James Freeman :) I'll be sure to update with more photos, one it's all tested and dialed in!
