You guys are killing me with these LM's all over the place! I just got my Silvia/Rocky and I am in heaven... but now I am starting to get upgrade-itis. I can't look... they are just too cool... but now I know what I am getting in a few years.

cheers

I put instant coffee in a microwave and almost went back in time.

Hey all

MarkPrince Said:

That's a heapin' cool knock box Corey! Where did you get it?

Posted February 18, 2005 link

Yeah it's a Sunbeam Bang Bang made from Oz. Everybody seems to like them. They are incredibly sturdy and heavy, they are also designed to be really easy to clean with removable molded pieces of plastic. I think Rob Hall and a few others have tried to source one in the US but they are a little hard to come by. I think there was actually two recent threads running for people interested. If you want a close up photo here's the link;

here is a question for corey and Mark....

I won't ask about the 1group LaMarzocco... I will leave that question for a time I don't want to feel depressed...hahaha....

but

what kind of tables are you using to store your coffee I am thinking of going to the 5gallon water bottles and taking my setup out of the kitchen for the wifes sake....

but I am having a hard time deciding what is a good idea for the same work space and enough room underneath for water bottles....

thanks

DOM

Here is my modest setup. Only 1 year ago I was drinkin' supermarket preground drip from an dirty under temp machine that had too long a brew cycle. Thanks Coffeegeek.com!

I've really been enjoying this thread. I check back periodically to see what everyones up to and it's actually a bit facinating. It's like visiting each persons kitchen. Cajun Brew I think your set up is quite handsome? Did I say that? :) Okay and I must say the tile on your back splash combined with your counter top color is quite cool too! Are those ceramic tiles or is that a pressed tin?

and here's my little setup.  Eventually in some years I want  to add a lever machine and a livia, another mazzer mini (two in total) and a shelf for all my cups

Hey Dom, here are a couple of shots of my set-up, particularly the island bench. I bought it from a nearby furniture warehouse. It took a lot of looking around before we found something that looked good and also fit the space. It's quite nice, it has a marble top, fits exactly in the space we had for the bench and also has a cool bottom shelf that could house the water bottles and the external pump.

Here is another shot which shows that there is quite a bit of room for drink prep.

Thanks Kevin

The tile on the back splash is tin. The first thing I noticed when me and my wife checked out this house was the color of the counter top.... we are in LSU country(Geaux Tigers)!

Gregor, i wonder if the pro peloton guys bring their own mobile machines in?  I'd like to see one of those setups for the pre-race.  Great photos.
