This Europiccola was produced sometime before 1996 and it amazes me how well it looks & works. I bought it second hand two weeks ago.
Since recording this clip, the Ascaso I-steel grinder has been modified to remore the little internal screw that limited the finess of the grind. Now tamping can be done lightly and less power is needed to extract a 20 second espresso through the naked portafilter. Also, a new single hole steam wand tip improved milk frothing.
