We have a delivery time for the IMS NANO Baskets right now, most of the models are not available in Italy at the moment. As soon we will know the delivery time, we will let you know. The Shower Screens are NOT affected. It´s only about the Barista PRO Nano Filter version.
The new range of Titanium Grade 5 Tampers is available now - all Sharp Edge SE. It´s incredible to see and feel the difference between a normal stainless steel and the Titanium Grade 5, where we offer a glossy finish for the GF tampers. The normal bases will have the polished surface at the trapeze side only.
To have an impression about the difference in weight. The GF stainless steel is approx. 540g handle included, the Titanium Grade 5 is approx. 320g. This offers a totally different way to work and a much better feeling for the sharp edges. Indeed the handling of the TI G5 Tamper is different but you will love it.
The TITANIUM range is strictly focussed to the size of the IMS and VST filter baskets.
We have been waiting for the 20mm H basket from IMS for a while, now we can provide it as E&B LAB version with the 715 holes. All Filter Baskets from this range are ridegeless. The 20 mm one can be also used as a Single. We use the supplier filling info for those baskets although we usually like to have more space on top of the coffee.
2T 12/14 g H20
2T 14/16 g H22
2T 16/18 g H24
2T 18/20 g H26
The E&B baskets might be the best money can buy but you can test yourself now to compare. We will also have them with X-TREME CC coating attached.

We have some issues every now and then concerning the portafilters, doesn´t matter if they are after market, OEM or bottomless ones - also if the chosen brand is the right one. To decide about the fit it´s helpful to provide pictures and some measures. We show here which are the most important values to check your portafilter in order to be sure with the new one you are asking for.
There is a new coating available - X-TREME CC. That´s the stuff we have been waiting for - AMAZING! We are going to start with the best and most important IMS items, more items to come soon. Any part you like can be applied with this coating but you need to wait for the next batch of course.

We are going to produce some new Titanium Tampers, made from Titanium G5 these days. There will be some new diameters and designs available of course as the acceptance of our TI G5 tampers is quite amazing. It´s also possible to add a DLC coating on top of the TI G5 pistons. There is not that much to beat this combination.

It´s no secret that non-stick coatings used for high-quality filter baskets and shower screens are excellent to keep all clean and running correctly. We can find this, e.g. when using Teflon® and Nano Quartz technology. However, most of those coatings are not hard enough. The DLC coating offers an alternative, but normally the non-stick properties are not as good as with Teflon® or Nano technology. Now we have the chance to use a coating that could be called TEFLON-DLC. We can find the durable properties of the DLC here, as well the non-stick properties of Teflon®. The material is of golden colour and in one word - it´s incredible. Final pricing, in the long run, depends on the quantities we will make and on the demand of the customers.
There are new IMS shower screens available now:
Reinforced 200 µm models for Marzocco, Simonelli & E61:
San Marco Leva
Gaggia / Saeco
Dalla Corte/ La Spaziale
Astoria Plus4You/San Marco

The mission was to find a good solution for a great, new upcoming restaurant in downtown Lisbon which will open the doors in mid-September. As the restaurant and bar is an open space close to the guest room the task was to find a very beautiful and silent solution for this stylish restaurant. We decided to go for a lever machine, of course, a Conti in this case, combined with a Ceado E37J /64mm burrs as speed is no issue here. The Ceado has only little retention and even after a while of serving no coffee, we have the chance to set the third extra button of the new Ceado display to a minimum, approx. 1 sec, to get rid of the older coffee. Both machines really work well together and we are sure that they will do a great job in the daily business. It´s amazing to notice how silent this set-up really is and how easy it is to learn to handle this couple after a short instruction. More info and pics to come soon....
Machine: Conti Lever 1 GR - Grinder: Ceado E37J - Extras: IMS Baskets 14 Gr + 9 Gr Single - Tamper: TORR Goldfinger 58.5 Convex - Glass Hopper: soon - Coffee: to be selected, should be organic
Yes, we love lever machines and here is a new baby. It´s beautiful, elegant, well made but of course, it needs some mods. In the beginning, we provide some pictures of the "Heart" - guess what it is? Sure, it´s the lovely Conti leva, made in Monaco. We will post some pictures of the whole Set-up soon, beneath a Ceado grinder with a beautiful TORR glass hopper on top. More lever and more about this Conti will appear these days but there is one info we can´t miss to tell you in the beginning. There are not many machines on the market where you will get so much value for the money. However, let´s see about the details, benefits, pros and cons later and how we can improve this machine to make it even better and more beautiful.
