Beginning of what may become an epic restoration story.

Beginning of what may become an epic restoration story.

I haven't posted in years. I have been busy moving my roastery and opening more shops so not much time for rebuilds and coffee geekery. But two days I managed to bag three vintage levers in South Africa, which is very rare to do because we don't have a very old coffee culture here and any vintage machines that are here have probably come with a italian family long time ago. The machines are a Gaggia Esportazione, a Celemex Torino and a La Pavoni Modello 54. I dont have any information on the Celemex, have any of you got any information on this machine? I will need to get/make a Gaggia Esportazione 2 group drip tray, do any of you have a spare one lying around gathering dust Or does any one have one of these machines that I could get measurements from so I can get one made here?
