EspressoMedic – BEAN HERE NOW – Double Lever Rebuild and Wood Windows Panel Job

WE MADE THIS: FROM THIS: This coffee booth Bean Here Now Consciousness Cafe got struck by a truck by accident.  The trailer was on a 45degree angle and the machine fell off the counter.  The groups broke and the panels were all cracked.  Panels no longer exist for this model therefore, we made new ones.  […]

Elektra BelleEpoque Double Brass Eagle

This was a nice repair to get into the shop.  Elektra BelleEpoque Double Brass Volumetric. It was in need of a good descaling and some wiring and pretty much all the gaskets. This kind of looks like a picture of nothing, but there is suppose to be a VacuumBreaker there, not a bolt.  It was […]

Elektra MicroCasa, 45 years old.

This nice Elektra MicroCasa came in.  Very tarnished.  Needed a new element, a full descaling, a new light and some piston rings and gaskets.  A bit of elbow grease on the polish just for fun.  Total billed: 2hours. A bunch of home levers came in at the same time.  These look nice.                  I think this […]

Faema Home Machine Repair

 Faema Amica2 Amazing vintage 220V.  This machine just would have needed a little descaling.  But after being stored, with water in it… it was frozen.  Two boiler fastening tabs broke off.  Need new boiler.  Actually found one at Genius Coffee’nEspresso, $88, not bad, complete with element.  Descale remainder parts, reassemble.  The steam of this thing is […]
