Jon,
Great setup.  Between you, Nicholas and Bill, that's a lot of  GS/3's! (EDIT: forgot to write "In Houston")

Hopefully you will have another jam as I still haven't experience that machine up close.

Will the Wega be going up for sale?

So far, a very satisfying upgrade (still in the starry-eyed in the first day of ownership)

I'm sure you'll still feel that way after a month or two Jon, heck., even a year! {;-)

Congrats!!

I think it's a lot more than that!

I moved into a new place and with no 220volt...my La Marzocco Linea 2EE had to be put away in the closet :-(

But I managed to get a gently used 2003 Brasilia Portofino America.  Its got plenty of steam and a big enough boiler (2.5liters) and it works on a standard outlet with 15amps :-)

My Shrine update.

You mean a bunch of GS/3's in Houston, right?  There are probably more....

Posted October 15, 2009 link

Yes.  

But first I plan to give her some TLC and do a full refurb and descale.  The Wega has been "ON" for about 4 years and I want her to serve the next owner as well as she has served me.  She'll be in the BST soon.

Jon, you are really rubbing it in, aren't you!  I have been tempted, but would probably be smothered in my sleep if I bought a GS3.....which would be good for you guys, as it would show up on BST.

I swear, when I get the two groupd Synesso Hydra (or the Slayer, or perhaps the new, yet to be unveiled LM) I'm posting it on this forum, HB, AZ Coffee, Stagecraft Digest, Speed, and some of my fencing sites as well.  Try and stop me!  ; >

I didn't get a paddle....it's just a "plain ol' GS3"
But I did post to both already-existing threads with pics of my new toy.  Yes, I'm excited  :-))
