This beautiful machine was a present given to me for my birthday by a dear friend. He bought it back in the 80’s in Italy due to its astonishing appearance! A super surprise gift which was stored in his basement for years. It has been used, no doubt. My friend is a fantastic jewelry maker but once a bucket of highly aggressive acid used within his field of specialism, spilled on top of the machine … leaving a life time signature and memory )).
I love the story so during its restoring process I decided to leave its undeniable signature. It’s beautiful in its imperfection. Nevertheless there is a lot of internal work to be replaced and fixed. Look forward having it up and running soon as her Lido-E hand grinder is waiting for her :-). Will try to create a God Cup of Espresso sooon!
