It looks practical, but too much like a hand-wash soap dispenser. :lol:
Three Francesconi (CMA) espresso machines - Rossi, San Marco, LaCimbali, Faema and 2 Mazzer Major grinders- CoffeeTech Maggionlino, Hottop, Alpenröst and HW Precision roasters.
I decided I needed a bit of a change so I roasted some Monsooned Malabar. That was a change!

Love the music in the video, classy. Seriously though, I'd love to test drive it. The concept is solid, I'd just love to know more about the grind consistency/burrs etc.

Saw them and played with them in Copenhagen... they're lovely. Might be scary expensive and undistributed in the UK, but I'd buy one tomorrow because for looks, useablility etc they knock spots off the clunky, ugly, noisy, enormous messes currently available in this country....

Bless the scandinavians for their design style. I'd like them to work their magic on espresso machines next...

We asked them to work on Cakey, they said there was nothing that could be done, he is beyond help even for their skills!

Looks really nice... but cost-prohibitive in our shop, me thinks :( We offer 4-5 different coffees for FP. No way Mom & Dad are gonna shell out over C$10K for FP grinders!!!

I'd rather see them develop espresso grinders... can't be that huge of a mod, could it?
This week, I'm mainly recovering :DAll I've got is my Aerobie AeroPress | 70's Aurora/Brugnetti HX Spring Lever | Mazzer Mini E & SJ (on loan) | Hottop | Nestor Martin (Toto) Gas Roaster | Eva Solo | Moka Pots

saw one of those in the local micro roaster/espresso bar. I had almost slipped it into my big rain coat pocket when I realised it wasn't actually mine and I wasn't allowed, as such, to "borrow" it from them either...
But ooh, what a nice grinder it seems to be. Like the la Marzocco S, but obviously not vapourware.
