I found that youtube video I was talking about. Gotta love the meticulous care taken to prepare his cappuccino. Even uses the steamer on the moka pot to heat the water in the Mypressi twist to just the right temp before pulling the shot.

It looks exactly the same, just an electrical version, I'm sure everyone who uses this forum is even more precise in their coffee making, but if I had to go through that ritual of a morning I'm not sure I could manage it....my word

That's why your picture caught my eye- looks just like mine except for the bottom. Does yours say CX30 on the bottom? Mine says CXE30, E for electric. That's why I'm thinking they're related to the Bellmans, the Bellmans are CX25 and CXE25.

I checked the bottom of mine and it was blank, there's nothing anywhere on it to show what or where its from, but I have got the instruction leaflet but, again no reference numbers.

That's almost spot on Len!  There are two valves, one for the coffee and once the coffee has come through, you close off the bottom valve, wait for steam to start escaping via a side valve and then you open up the top valve to steam your milk.  The coffee comes through very smooth rich but with no crema.  The steam comes through very hot and makes a goodly amount of dense foam.  I'm really pleased with it.  The smell reminds me so much of my Gran's stove top Gaggia.  She lived in Milan and we used to visit her and my Nono when I was a kid.  I remember the lovely smell of coffee and fresh rosemary she used when she cooked.

That is interesting how the valves work.  So essentially you can keep both valves closed until steam escaps from the side release and then open it up and the pressurized hot water will go through the grinds kind of like what Brikka does with their weighted release mechanism?

I'm thinking the valves actually offer some temperature control of the brew. I may try some stick on temp. strips to show me when to open the brew valve. Sounds like when the side release opens thats when you're ready to steam your milk.

And it actually keeps enough pressure for some decent coffee? and steam milk? If so, that's impressive, considering some basic home machines can't even do that.

Hi Franco,
 I was wondering if you found out any more about your Colombia? I am very curious as to when these were made.

I couldn't find out any more about it so far (I even asked some relatives who have lived in Milan for many years) The Instruction leaflet with it makes me estimate its at least 20 years old, I've even checked the address and it doesn't seem to exist any more.
