Kees remembers it as a good fun project, building this espresso contraption for the good cause. Thanks for showing how to actually use it, even if it is once only!

@Stoney3K That is actually a light bulb. The original one was better-looking. It was an old fashioned bulb, the one currently installed is some kind of a led-type. The light bulb goes on and off with the heating element, regulated by the pressostat of course.

What does the white-knobbed handle with the bike sprocket do? Is it just there to be able to move the machine?

Kees van der Westen I second the collaboration idea. This looks to me like an espresso machine that Dr. Who would use. Very TARDISish

What a brilliant machine. I love the sight glass to check the water level. It’s like you’re both the driver and the fireman of an old steam locomotive.

I'm so surprised that you needed a pump. I'm vacuously ignorant about how espresso machines work, but shouldn't water mains pressure be enough to fill a chamber?

Something tells me the guy who made this is a fan of Warhammer. This looks like the thing the Fabricator-General would make his morning espresso with... If he even drank liquids that aren't oil

This is what I imagine my brother who was a car mechanic for 30 years and then switched to a construction worker would use if he drank espresso... To be fair it would be a mixed project with my oldest brother, the second oldest one and my dad since the last two are electricians. Also, there's a Swedish song about a mad scientist making an eternal engine from a bicycle which he also can make pancakes on, and possibly boil coffee? Song: Michael B Tretow - Den makalösa manicken​

Would be cool to put that behind plexiglass and automate the scary bits. Might make a nice addition to the Square Mile Roastery Museum of Coffee, which would be the logical conclusion to all of this interesting coffee content.

This is fantastic. Should definitely be used for entertaining, and as a conversation piece. I love my equipment, and leave it out in the kitchen because I feel it adds an aesthetic that friend's homes lack frankly. If I had that thing, I would be obsessed with it.

"That's kind of a thing" and "just a little bit unconventional". The statements are civilized and understated accompanied with the all important eye stare. I love the subject matter but equally the intelligent delivery. Quality stuff James. Love your work....from Billy down under.
