Can't afford it as much as I would love it.  If you can't sell it (as if) you can give it to me.... I will make you some cookies....  Oscar is a steaming monster now!!! You should see it.... and the cone on the shot I just filmed. You will not believe it, it is not perfect but the cone is huge for me.

Excellent cone! And the photo of that steam reminds me of a steam locomotive; Kudos :)

As far as the cookies are concerned I think I would be competing with the Girl Scouts for many years to pay for it. :-)))

Looks like you have the market cornered on Oscar performance.

A little more than $100 in parts and 6 hours of time and I believe I have the equivalent of a 2-3k machine now.  Can't blame a girl for trying to bribe you.
Edited for bad math.

Not at all, love the spirit!

That sounds like a good upgrade to Oscar.  Was it taking Musica parts to make the upgrade?

Yes, Musica parts.  I added wrong a bit more than $100 but not a lot more.  Musica Vacuum breaker and restrictors and steam wand stuff from AURELIA.

Here's my CC1/Major Combo. That's my Dad's Mr. Coffee in the background. I bought it for him for father's day two years ago before I got into coffee myself. The Vario is hiding behind the picture. My Dad and I both use it for our drip (he uses the Mr. Coffee and I use a Hario cone).
