And to go with that massive grinder how 'bout an 11 foot tall espresso
machine! Remember that thread about the BIG espresso machine that was on
Discovery Channel? I recorded it and finally got around to watching it. What
a hoot! They actually succeeded getting the Guinness World Record for the
largest functional espresso machine. While it wasn't plumbed it has a 120gal
tank and 30gal boiler and even functional giant steam wand. Cool show, their
team of guys & gals built it in 5 days. The 2003 US Barista Champion was
there for the whole time and kept them wired, she even helped build the
monster machine.
If anyone didn't get a chance to watch it and would like to I recorded it on
my PVR and burned it to DVD. (Do to recent events I'd ask, oh lets say $3,
to help cover the DVD cost and shipping.)

Mike,
I watched the show!  I couldn't believe the hand tamping and the load
of coffee they dumped in that puppy!  I wish they had given the specs
on that shot!  I would love to turn a tamper for it!
