Yeah, yeah... it's cheating... but I don't care.  I still love my setup, no matter how 'commercial' it is!

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.

thanks Corey... that is an awesome photo.... that is exactly what I needed

I will probably go consignment store shopping when I get back to the Bay Area...(or I might wait until I get a house)

So this is the alter I pray to each morning. It's amazing how fast I've gotten back into the old habit.... I used to get out of bed, trudge down two flights of stairs, and start building my morning shot or americano before even really waking up.

Now I get out of bed, trudge down the hall, enter the shrine, and start making my drink.... then wake up. Some mornings I don't even remember walking to the room ;)

Opposite the machine's placement is one of the remaining butcher block tables. When I beef up the wiring in the room, I'll be able to put one or two testing machines in there for compare and contrast for reviews. For now, they sit in the kitchen, about 5 steps away.

BTW, isn't it spooky how freakin' huge the Mazzer Super Jolly is? It makes the LM look small. Yikes.

CoffeeKid,

I wish I had a  LM Linea 1 Group, 110V.

You are a Lucky Man.

I finally have mine all set up to share. I know, it's not as fancy as others on this forum, but it serves my son and I well. He is the only 7 year old that goes to school with a Cappa in a stainless stell travel mug. :)  I found that the Innova I-1 is a great match for Miss Silvia. I also kept my Solis Maestro for grinding beans for my French press.

nyc_crema Said:

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

Posted February 19, 2005 link

I really like the setup of this picture.  It shows visually how teh espresso worlk really is.  The grinder is the main focus of the pic, miss Silvia is in teh background almost unoticable.  great pic.

I also really liked cremamagic's photo, from a photographic standpoint.  the light comming through the blinds makes a really nice picture.  I think tomorrow I will setup a more artistic photo of my "shrine"  Thanks for the inspiration guys.  I'm really envious of the 110v LM machines.  Are these availabe anywhere or are these "test units that you got from a guy that knows a guy."

Matty,

What machine is this?  I don't think I've ever seen it and it looks "serious".
