sorry, Im having trouble uploading directly to the thread, so bear with me...

first up, a shot of the whole "bar" Click

The "gas station" funnels are for WDT.  I also use that little strainer sometimes, depending on the coffee.  It takes a little more time, but the results are so much better.  My WDT tool is not in view.

That red mat, is similiar to a Silpat, just not that brand.  I like it alot, I hated having the bare counter cuz we have tile, so tamping and cleaning grounds on tile was never fun.

The Pede is a 550, I LOVE IT.  The cuisinart is only presspot.  But, when I get my new machine, I MAY buy a electric grinder for it, so the PeDe will be presspot, and the cuisinart will be gone.  Idk tho, because I dont think ill NEED an electric grinder for the Anita/Office lever, but I may WANT one.  We'll see.

Here is a picture of my BarLight, for when Im doin the late night shots.  very useful.Click


And here is the cabinets above.Click Left Side: Lattebowls, shot glasses, measured shot glasses, cappa cups, Wine glasses for guests coffee specials(my stemware collection for wine is elsewhere, and much nicer then these deartment store glasses.)  Ya know, Iced mochas and the sort.  Right Side:Containers for beans for cupping/bagging.  Some extra storage jars, rice for grinder cleaning.  Presspot, with percolater filters for the finer grind I use, RO water for the espresso machine, filtercone, more specialty coffee glasses.  My regular coffee mugs are on the other side of the kitchen, in my toaster over, which is my warmer.

So.. only days ago I posted my OLD setup...

Here is the new one :)

Click here

This will be added in the next few days, once im finished cleaning it up...

Click here

New burrs will be here tuesday, and shes gonna get painted whatever color I have the most of.  Likely metalic blue or gloss black...but I do have some funky colors.  Neon green, and pink.  A pink major would be funny!  I might also go and get some hammered texture paint, maybe in copper color, that would look cool.

I use the PID for temperature display only, the thermocouple is in the grouphead.  
I used to do a countdown for the flush as part of my shot prep.  As the PID always displays 92C at the end of the countdown, I just skip the counting part now.  I'm eager to see if the PID helps when I'll have to pull multiple shots during a dinner party.  It's always been a bit more of a hit and miss for me during those times.

I bought the machine used exactly a year ago, and it was already 11 years old then.  Some things get better looking as they age  :-)

Ahhh, makes sense - thanks

mmm, I've been hunting high & low for a used T1/A3...not an easy beast to find used. And yes, it ages quite nicely :)
