The grinder is MUCH more important than the espresso machine!

LOL, I got busy this morning with my camera too; I'll have to post later.

What kind of equipment are you shooting with?  Your kitchen looks like it has good lighting (and stainless steel cabinets!).  Nice work man!

Thanks again. I use a Nikon D2H--a fantastically intuitive device (a whole separate and equally geeky conversation). Shot those images with a 50mm 1:1.8 D.

Yes. Stainless all around.

*speechless*

*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!!

This pic was taken about a month after I got my rig which was a little over a year ago.  It looks pretty much the same except I've upgraded the cups.

Looks good, Anthony...

Is that a digital thermometer behind Silvia?  How is it hooked up?

G'day Ron,

Yep ! Just a "K" type thermocouple attached to the boiler top just near the left hand thermostat. Plugs into matching digital thermometer.

I had a good look at Randy G's experimenting on taste verses pulling the shot at various boiler temps on the Silvia. After reading it and trying differing temps I now use 212 deg F (100 degC) as the temp to hit the brew button.

This happens around 33-35 seconds (on my machine) after the lower thermostat clicks the element on (light on - after steam wand bleed) ....

I can now also bleed  steam wand to get dry steam and then wait for max steaming temp when using large jug ..when making 4 lattes/cappas at once.
The steam temp gets up to 300 deg F (150deg C) before element clicks off.

When steaming large amounts of milk (over 1 minute steaming) the boiler temps settles on about 250 deg F (120 deg C) for the duration.

It was easy to install and is easily removed ...I can truely temp surf instead of time surf. I have another port in the thermometer to which I'm connecting another thermocouple to finally see brew temp at the portafilter verses boiler temp. Hoping to get around 195 deg F (90 deg C) at basket consistantly but need to know what temp boiler is at for 195 at basket.

Regards
Anthony
