Dear Domenic;

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Bob Kallotte from Sarasota Florida and I love my espresso. Thank you for publishing a great web-site .

Last year I acquired a Pavoni lever machine in very bad condition ( I could not afford one in good shape ). Being a part time machinest, I rebuilt the machine and bored out the pump cylinder and made a new stainless steel sleeve and piston. This machine now makes wonderful espresso with the Cuban roast beans that I enjoy.

The problem is that I need a quality grinder to get some consistancy and I can't afford it. I have been following the ebay auctions, but the used good grinders seem to go $200 and higher. I am capable of doing all sorts of repairs on a grinder if I can get one at a price I can afford.

Do you have any words of wisdom or suggestions for me?

Warmest regards
Bob Kallotte
