Good morning

I lost this picture and can't find it anywhere

It's a picture of an older female barista in Italy using a lever machine.

I only found a photo of the oldest barista in Milan (the beautiful lady she was 97 when she passed away this year after 77 year of work), but she is working/posing with a Faema E61, i think you can find it too googling "Lina Orsolina".

I remember an image of a very small in stature older woman standing beside a two or three group lever. She may have been standing on a wood box to reach the lever handle. The image has been posted here, but I can't find it ...

This link is not the original place it was posted on HB (which is in a thread about lever machine placement or the force needed to pull a lever I believe) but might be what you are looking for? :wink:

Since 'Barista' is gender neutral. I want to share one of my favorite coffee images,
