Yeah, it's a gorgeous machine...but I think it's really sad they don't know how to make the most of it.  There's a French restaurant in Houston that has a beautiful shiny chrome 2group spring piston lever machine. Maybe it's a LM Mirage? Next to it they have a commercial Mazzer grinder, not sure what model though. Sitting on top of the Mazzer is an inverted can of Illy beans! The dang setup is center display in their restaurant, as the seating area is U shaped covering 3 sides of the bar and this setup is like on the end of the peninsula! It makes me want to pull my hair out.

Right off the bat, the pic is on it's side so it is hard to see!

yeah, Wayne, that pic is from a year or more ago. As bad a photo as it is...it's my bad...sorry!  I've been there several times since, including this past weekend, but haven't made an attempt to get a better photo...sorry 'bout that too.  Trust me in the fact that they have that gorgeous commercial Electra without a grinder of any sort in operation - it's a dam# cryin' shame!  btw, in case it's not obvious enough...I go there for the food, not the coffee :)

I know of a local supplier that sells the Illy hoppers.  The sad part tho is when they showcased them to me he pulled I think a 1.5 kg full hopper out of a large box sitting in the back for god knows how long.  I hope at least they are nitrogen flushed to preserve some freshness.  I've tried the pods and they aren't bad for pre packaged coffee.  That picture is a hell of a nice setup tho your right!  Shame that grinder isn't being used.  You should go there and order a coffee but ask to make it yourself. :P

LOL, only if he wants a job! After tasting the difference (he may need his own beans though) he may be offered a job!
