It's a La Pavoni PRH. I bought it new about 12 years ago. It's great for apartment living because it's small and quiet (no pump). Coupled with my hand grinder, I can make an espresso with my wife sleeping on the sofa.
I admit, though, that I haven't taken as good care of it as I should have.
You like Shaft. Is this also something you'd be interested in?
Further to my usual coffee shop raising prices, there are only 2 customers in here right now, & we're both long-term customers. I've only ordered a double espresso today, & the other guy a cappuccino (2 of his 3 cheapest drinks). The owner is giving both of us free (& very weak) oolong tea to keep our glasses full. He's also making a great effort to engage us in conversation, but he's always been pretty good that way.
The staff uniforms weren't what I had expected/hoped. 😁
Apparently, #Taiwan had more deaths than births in the first half of this year.
We had some leftover buckwheat & millet combo in the fridge. I added ricotta #cheese & lavender honey. That's just way too decadent to be this healthy. 😍
If you don't have lavender honey, you may need a pinch of cinnamon.
You can thank me later.
And here's the same guy making an oven & roasting a chicken.
I made my first ever ricotta.
