Topic: espresso computer on youtube (11 msgs / 222 lines)
1) From: Ed Needham
It's not old news to me, but I can diagnose at least a few problems with the 
design.  The biggest being how to keep those silicone lines clean.  Coffee 
dust and debris being another, and shot volume being another.  It almost 
looks like the coffee was whirred in a blender just before being sent down 
those little tubes.  Cheater style espresso.

I did see the coffee. After all the processing, he used bagged coffee.
Still, it was pretty cool to look at.

cabinet.

Hi All,
The computer brewer looks "Clover" like in operation. Is it by the same
people?

No, it's just an assortment of parts put together.  He claims to have spent
$3000 on the parts, and 80 hours to build. Ugh.

he should have bought a refurb saeco from frys for 299 and a junk pc case,
and then maybe some salvage parts from the dump.  as for 80 hours, well, hi=
s
loss!   i could probably build a lego robot in a pc case to cook and eject
omelets too but that doesn't mean i'd want to eat the end result ;P

WHATS YOUR SOURCE?!?
granite alone is $70/ft.  last kitchen i did ran me around $6k, and i did
all the work myself, and used the 'high end' home depot stuff. none of that
low end custom order crap. (lol)
i estimate my kitchen now to run me 10-15k in materials..
