Conti Lever & Ceado E37 - the perfect match

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 

Team "Silent" - Conti Lever & Ceado

Lever - just love it!

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.
