Hello Folks, I was very fortunate and acquired a '96 Olympia Maximatic from a fellow CGer a couple of days ago and man oh man! What a world of difference from my Gaggia Color I've been using this past year. The Olympia heats up so fast, the temp is so stable, the crema and taste of the espresso is far and away so so much better than my other machine. Of course the Gaggia Color is not in the same class and could never have been expected to produce similar results. But jeez, I actually thought I was drinking decent coffee at home once in awhile ....boy was I mistaken. Love this machine. Completely restored, beautiful on the counter.

Touché mon frere. You are right about that. I'm at work now but when I'm back home on my desktop. Imputed i'll be posting a couple of pics of my new baby. I guess I was so excited I just spaced that part. I also have t sorted out uploading a photo to CG via my iPhone ( there must be an app!) so I can't do it while I on the set. Admission: I actually got out of bed last night past midnight and went to the kitchen just to look at it.
