...time for a shrine update; starting with this gorgeous piece of custom woodcrafting by the master, Mr. Dave Stephens.
He replicated the original E61 style handle in Macassar Ebony for me  :-)

No need to spend mega $ and build an new extension to have great espresso.

With a bit of shopping around and patience, I built this setup for a little over $1000. The total kitchen space occupied by the whole setup is about the size of a 14 inch cube (14x14x14) and I'm ready to pull shots in only 10 minutes from cold.

With the manual pre-infusion, pressure and temperature profiling, taste is only limited by your barista skills.

Small is beautiful !
