(Geek alert)

Niels Winther Hestbech of KaffeMekka delivered an important batch of machinery today (the stuff i tried to visualize in cardboard the other day)
No unpack video, I'm affraid, but a few snaps to share my excitement:

The hot and newly rediscovered classic grinder "EK43" is seriously heavy. The production principles  behind this grinder are as old as the grinder looks; from a time where good stuff was made in Germany, by hand, of metal.  I kid you not: Good lifting technique is required!

Totally bling! Below is a 2 group Nuova Simonelli, the model used for the World Barista Championships. It has an amazing temperature control system: one in the huge steam boiler,  one in each of the boilers dedicated for each group, and even dedicated temperature control of each of the (massive) group heads. The machine allows brewing at different temperatures at each group head.

Can't wait to get the stuff up and running, but hookup awaits the water processing system I am hoping to get really soon.
