I would plumb the machine in at some point (we are planning a kitchen remodel later this year) but would like the option of a reservoir. Now if that cup tray on the Pompei could be cut off bringing the machine down to 17 inches...
My parents have a place in Refugio, so I come through the area on occasion. I will most certainly stop by.

Regarding thermosyphon vs dipper: if the Salvatore uses the same Bosco group as the Londinium, would it not be connected to the boiler in the same fashion? I assumed the Salvatore has similar group temperature regulation. Another question for Wendy and Salvatore, I suppose.

I forgot to post the height dimensions of the Achille and Pompei yesterday, sorry.
Measured from the table surface to top of back frame, the Achille stands 18 1/8" tall (not including the lever handle).
On the Pompei, I measured the to the top of the front corner. Andrew was considering cutting the top cup shelf in order to fit it underneath his cabinet and this is where you would begin your modification. To this point, it measured 16 5/8" from table surface to top corner.
I never imagined the Pompei to be "smaller" than the Achille without these shelves. To be fair, I remeasured the Achille at the location one would begin to cut if they wanted to remove the decorative rise of the casing. It then measured 16 7/16" tall.
So, all things being modified equally, the Pompei is still somewhat taller.
Please, no one get upset. No spring lever machines were injured during this excersise.
