I honestly hope where I apply to work that during the interview they ask me what interests I have. I may give a gift (bribe) to the interviewer and work if I am accepted. I think it would also break the ice in the office environemnt if I bring my Elektra or Pavoni to the office and share my experiences in the world of coffee and Italy. Prerhaps I may even bring one of my commercial levers to office events and bang out shots for the entire office!

I work in a major food org, and we have a Profitec 800 lever at our disposal, for use by anyone willing to learn how.
For those that use it, it brings us together at times to cross collaborate, compare notes, and just chat.
To add to that, the beans are provided for free, so is the milk. All we have to do is show up and pull shots.

It does create a terrific place to have different team members pause for reflection over good coffee.

and then there are those that opt? for the Keurig - sad!

Thought I'd post my Profitec Pro 800 which I recently powder coated with red sides. Always loved the look of Salvatore's lever machines with the colored side panels. I spend way too much time on this thread - especially love the posts by double o soul - some incredible lever machines in her collection!

What's the story on the Mahlkonig K30 hopper? Doesn't look like 'standard issue'.

Sporting a Mazzer short hopper with 3D printed adapter. Picked up a K30ES today.. The short Malkonig oem short hopper was multiple times more expensive $200cda vs $50cda hopper/adapter.

My Cremina's. black is a 1991, followed by 1987 Brown, 1984 Orange, 1983 Red. The movers dropped the orange but its still going, The chrome could be shined up a bit. The matte black grows on you, favorite is the orange, all have been daily's except the black. Time for a Fama Faemina I think next, change things up a bit.

I too enjoy orange, probably followed by red, brown, and chrome. I personally have no interest in owning a cremina but I know you have quite a collection of these machines! A Faemina would be a cool purchase in the future, and I may be looking for one in a while as well!
