I had the opportunity to stop in here for a cup today. I thought that I would share that with all those here. Buon appetito!

...no wonder Italian wines always seem to have that "little something extra"...

This is one of the videos showing continuously at the Caffee. I found myself in it twice. I imagine some others from this forum are in there too!

7 years essentially.

2022 is a bust for me, anniversary weekend.
I do intend to make it to 29 years.

Thanks so much for beginning this thread Don Lon!

As I began going through the images I kept thinking "...so where's la macchina da caffe?"

Then is image came up -


...note how the digital age as done its bit with coffee machines...

the machine has a touch screen/vdt for each of its two brew groups with a third one off to the side on the right

had been hoping they would be using a FAEMA piece of equipment since this manufacturer sponsored a professional racing team - a natural tie-in for a cycling themed coffee bar...




even Eddy rode for the team at one point in his career. here is his personal team ride of 1968 -

Oh that's right! Aren't you into espresso machines and the like? I am happy to have provided some new images for you. Had I remembered there could have been many more. Mie scuse!
