*jaw-dropping*

Okay okay okay... a few questions.  In case the elektra wasn't good enough, you've also got a novecento (or so I believe it to be...)

The second one isn't so much a question, but a comment... the cuisinart; the poor guy doesn't even stand a chance sitting next to the first two.  It's like sending whoopi goldberg on after billy crystal at the oscars!!

The Cuisinart Coffee Machine is only there due to the fact it won't fit under my kitchen cabinet, that spot was reserved for my Elektra SXC Deco Machine

Yes, the other machine is the Wega Noecento without the Neptune statue, I replaced it with a pewter eagle instead, like it better

And here's the rest.  This machine & grinder are borrowed from a friend for the summer.  Would you believe he got both at an auction for $200?!!

Here is mine...Nothing fancy...The reason why the machine placed sideway, is that I can remove the top and add water...

Hello to all,

here is my setup, hope you all enjoy

Tom

Tom,

Your Elektra machine is beautiful.  What model is it?  I have only seen the micro casa, which seems a lot smaller.

One other question - what gives with two machines?  Do you really use both of them?

The Elektra Machine is from the Belle Epoque series and the model is the Art OC, it is a commercial machine with an external pump, what a joy to use, it stands a stately 34" tall

Yes, I use both machines and have a third not in the photo, it is the Elektra SXC deco model, another great machine, nice to have a change once in awhile and a little variety

Here is mine.  I couldn't let Tom be the only one with two machines!  I just got the Astra Gourmet (GSP) pour over tonight.   The Millenium will be gone soon, so two machines is only temporary.
