Pimped Espresso Machine by Complete Cafe Services.

Every now and then we get some time to mess around. This is one of our near finished projects. Started with an Original Bezzera Lever from around 1956. Added a 5000w element for ultra-quick heat up and response/recovery. Chopped the cup tray to allow for larger cups. Added PID Electronic for ease of boiler temperature adjustment, as this is non-heat exchange it’s good to get a better idea of the temp hitting the head. I fitted the thermocouple as close to the head as possible... 1960s La Marzocco taps were fitted along with some La Pavoni knobs. Might change these to rancillio "clever" taps when I get hold of some. A full set of new springs and seals were put through the groups once they had been acid washed and re-chromed. I had a naked portafilter made to fit and a deep double outlet to fit 21 gramers. It was a hard choice for the body, so as I am still undecided, I had a piece of white acrylic cut and folded to slip around nicely, added some LED lights and here it is.
