....and of course, no shrine would be complete without a 4 stool bench and stash of DIY green beans storage on the wall!  Agree?

actually my "shrine" was a former bedroom, but when we renovated our house, it became my COFFEE ROOM instead.  So to answer your question, the 4 stools is simply my way to create a coffee bar look.  Pretty authentic in my own biased opinion!   Plus it makes an extremely interesting topic for guests.

ahhhh...nice. But, what are the things on the wall? You mention green bean storage. What are these things? They look too small to hold very many beans.

I really wanted to buy a proper storage bean hopper, but a 2 cylinder type commercially done was roughly AUD$300 (around US$250).  So i decided to make my own out of 750ml water bottles.  It doesn't hold much beans per bottle but it has the desired effect on the wall and at AUD$50 cost all up, I think its very good value.  Here's the link to my previous thread on how to make these hoppers:  "Re: Please look at my new DIY coffee bean dispenser"

And finally one close up photo:

I know I already posted this pic in another thread, but it's just so nice!


...just replaced the steam tip with an aussie equivalent of the gold pro tip - I would support that advertiser if they were in australia and could get the part to me the next day!
