Here's my updated setup.  Addition of new PID on Silvia care of Jim G on eBay (fantastic solution, thanks!), new Vivace Ergo-Packer tamper care of CoffeeMe's visit to Seattle (another thanks!) and a new set of four Bodum 'Hole In One' cappuccino cups - fantastic quality and design.

amazing setups.. all of you have inspired me :D

since i cant fit my grinder, espresso machine, tea kettle and coffee machine all on the same counter, im thinking of either getting a cart or building another counter behind my sink (which is where my breakfast nook is anyway, as well as water/drain hookups..).

rather than build something which im not sure ill like or will fit into my kitchen, im considering a cart.  my concern is that most are only 20" deep.  my machine is 18" deep.  2" = a lot of grinds on the floor..lol.  
for those with carts, do they work ok for you or am i thinking too much?

Replace silvia. Squandered $$$ putting in PID, even PID'ed silvia did not come close to a HX. Very happy since replaced silvia. Listen to your inner voice UPGRADE... UPGRADE............. UPGRADE!

Alas.....I haven't shot my new S1 yet, but we're in between homes and everything is temporary. I do miss the Expobar; I didn't sell the MDF. I kept it for decafe and "experiemental beans." (However, I did eat the bagel.)

With so many thoughtful setups and well framed photos being posted, I guess I'll have to pull out the old Oly E20 and bounce units and go "studio" on my next group of coffee photos!? "Just when I thought I was out of pulling the shutter, they pull me back in!" (Godfather III was not my favorite, but that line, paraphrased, is sooo classic.) Very impressive photos in this thread. Point of interest.......Coffee related subjects do really well in "incadescent-filament" bulb light. I prefer not to correct for the color temp, as I enjoy the warm tones.

And here is the new setup to replace the Elektra MSC and Semi-Automatica. Pretty humble setup compared to some of the earlier, but it gets the job done and the Maver Marte is a joy to work with.

normally have the top of the machine stacked with cups, but this was taken just after I got it...

***Shrine update****

I’d like to announce the arrival of a new addition to my espresso family!

I am the proud owner of a new M4 stepless/doser----nothing like the rush you get when new coffee stuff comes in.

About 3 years ago I did a Google search for “coffee maker” and stumbled on Mark’s review of the Capresso MT500. I thought it was a little strange someone taking temp measurements inside the brew basket with a thermocouple (I now own one and 2 probes) but I bought it. Then I found out I needed a grinder and started investigating……….well you know the rest. Click the link for a little slide show with music: “Evolution Of A Coffeegeek” which shows one man’s journey from swill to espresso Nirvana.


******EDIT******
1st link didn't work try this one..... http://timandyvette.tripod.com/
