1) From: W. Scholtes
I just ordered (online, 'cause they were closed) a Zaffiro from Chris.  I 
couldn't get more than a 'decent' shot on the Briel no matter what I 
tried.  I finally pulled the trigger on the upgrade after deciding life was 
too short for less than stellar espresso.  I think I might move my 
D-terminator scale up to the kitchen for a while.  Nothing like shots 
weighed out to a hundredth of a gram to encourage total anality about 
coffee.   Did I mention that I have four electronic thermometers (including 
a dual probe remote model).  Oh yeah, between this and bbq, I'm definitely 
doomed.

Well, basically 'cause I'm only home on weekends.  I prefer the small fresh 
batches out of my modded FR.  I happen to work out of a facility that gives 
me access to all the free stainless steel (plate, pipe and screen) that I 
desire.  Building a nice SS drum roaster would be trivial for me, I just 
don't require one.  This is despite the fact that I have a nice pit I made 
out of 1/8" stainless.

Congrats, Wayne, it's an awesome machine. BTW, the 
E61 head is very forgiving, so you'll only need to 
weigh to the nearest gram ;)

Now where's the fun in that? Now if I could just get the coffee to meter 
correctly through my spare Redding measure....
