Beautiful setup.  The stainless steel counter top really sets it off.  Looks sterile which is exactly the way my setup is cared for.

Hi Mark,

My twin, where has the M3 gone?

Here is my setup however the Nino now has the short Mahlkönig hopper on it.

Ah, the M3.  Well, it's been relegated to the basement! :)  Soon to be sold to another lucky owner.  Great grinder, but the Nino is pretty sweet on it's own - now that I have 220 installed and have room for it!

Big ass box for the little speedster!

Posted November 30, 2009 link

 If you had to lift the Speedster out of that big box you might not think it was so "little". Lots of other stuff in there with it. The remote motor pump assy is huge compared to the units used inside machines. It comes with a fairly large resin water softener & there also was the "alternative" engine turned bodywork along with all the accessories.

Ah, you got the sweet deal on Paul's, eh?  I know it's heavy, but I remember it being pretty compact, albeit pretty wide.

That's a shame, no longer twins, but as you say the Nino is pretty good and if the pulse modification ever comes about it will be even better.

Yes this is the machine & kit that Paul advertized here recently. It's low but wide & deep.

My new home setup . . . the Baratza Vario replaces the Quick Mill Stepless/Doserless (and Hopperless).  Also, I replaced the Bummper tamping stand with one from Cafelat.
