Vesuvius espresso machine portafilter handles and a steam, water and brew control lever in Bacote. The owner wanted the controls to follow the general design of the portafilters.

La Marzocco GS3 espresso machine parts. Side panels and group cap made from Wenge wood. The owner wanted contrasting portafilter handles and steam control turned from Macassar Ebony. It will look nice once they are installed on the machine.

And Dave what's the possibility of replicating the contour of the rubberized LM portafilter handle (I like Jim S.'s Kingwood myself :wink: )? Now that would be sexy...


It feels amazing reminds me of a wood steering wheel I had on my Mercedes, you will never want to touch plastic again
