I moved up to Santa Clarita a few months ago and while I love the house, it just does not have the layout / space for me to use my Espresso machine. The Macap M7D would not fit under the counter, so I even bought a Vario just to give it a shot. Used it for about a week, but it was too much of a pain. The machine ended up in the corner next to the fridge, and there is not enough space to use it. I need to get rid of it.
This is what I have. The primary use of this setup was for my use, and only 2-3 shots a day.
La Spaziale Vivaldi II (purchased from Chriscoffee about 3 years ago.) Naked PF Triple Basket La Spaziale Timer Led Lights just above the group head. Shot mirror Drain Kit
Macap M7D With custom bean hopper Original Hopper
Brand new Vario Ran only 1lb of beans through it.
For pictures of my old Mini Vivaldi II with the same light setup you can look through the below thread.
