    For a moment there, I thought it was a slayer. Still a very nice machine. Do let us know your impressions.

    The first image is a Slayer. The second is an Alpha Dominche Steampunk. Both nice machines. I've only played with them during training sessions, so I'm really looking forward to getting them installed and having more time on them.

    That's a hell of a setup there.

    Home or commercial use?

    If commercial, please do let me know so I can make a note to stop by if I am ever nearby.

    We are opening a few cafes around the South. These machines are for our training lab (which happens to be downstairs from my apartment, so semi-home use?). I'll PM you details as I don't want to get flamed for using this thread to plug my company.

    This is too. They only use levers/ Three group Bosco is the one they use daily

    I really like the Boscos, but I wouldn't want one in a retail setting. They are a lot of work for really high volume output.

    This isn't a high volume place. Only open Tuesday to Friday from 7AM to 11AM, Saturday till 2PM. No paper cups, so no coffee to go. If you want to take it with you, bring your own to go cup. This place is sort of relaxing and enjoyable to hang out. I never feel hurried or am in a hurry when I go there.

    They are mainly a roaster and this is the retail/public side of their business, sharing the same building.

    Cool. That makes sense. There's a place near us in Seattle that has a Bosco. They are mainly a food place so the coffee volume isn't too high. They pull some really lovely espresso.

    Some of the best espresso I have had was in the Greenwood and Ballard sections of Seattle, IIRC. Loved it there.

    Hey guys, I'm pretty new(ish) to SF and the coffee game - so far have been using a French press, but a few weeks ago took the leap on a Chemex set up (gooseneck kettle and all). Any other Chemex fans here??

    Still not operational, but slightly better pic of the new Slayer.
