    It really does look fantastic! Great seeing some pics of the process too. What paint have you used - it kind of looks like plastic coated!

    Thanks! The finishing took far longer than actually making the things. I used a few coats of high quality spray with a clear coat over the top. It’s certainly not perfect but it looks good from a distance ;-)

    With the machine finished in cream and black, the dark wood tamper handle seemed to stand out.
    So I went back into the workshop and machined another that I finished in matching cream.
    Job done. For now..

    next bit - hopper lid
    The peculiarity of espresso beverage is the simultaneous presence of three dispersed phases coexisting within a matrix, namely a concentrated solution of salts, acids, sugars, caffeine and many other hydrophilic substances. These phases are: an emulsion of oil droplets, a suspension of solid particles and an effervescence of gas bubbles, which evolves into a foam.
