Just got done with project "Franken-Aroma".

Some say it's like slapping a spoiler on a Ford Pinto? Maybe, but it fun to do on a budget, and it all works. Auber PID, Silvia v.1 Steam Wand, LED rgb Lights w/remote, NPP Portafilter, and a homemade LED shot timer.

Any other CoffeeGeeks out there that Modded or want to mod their Aroma's?

Here are some photos of the project

Here is a short video showing lights and LEDs

good job! I'm about to start modding my aroma also! I've got the silvia wand and the PID on their way and got the machine all opened up... I also want to fit an OPV while I'm in there.

That's cool, mod away!

You have a little bit to go before you catch up here though! This one, while not a Saeco, is a little over the top mod but when you get lemons, you make lemonaid!

Nice work there, :D
