Another Rancilio:

Whilst we are doing machinery here is a nice vintage coffee dryer:

Apparently this advert would make you want to buy coffee, I am not sure why:

Published in 1965 – has brewing coffee changed much in 40 years?

And finally, from “Modern Coffee Production” this should scare your kids:



  1. I love the patent coffee dryer .. i wonder if it comes with perm press option


  2. Hm, isn’t that coffee diagram from 1965 nearly the same one we got during Dublin’s ETCC? Interesting :)

  3. I’m looking for some info on coffee pests/diseases, such as the borer/weevil. Does “Modern Coffee Production” cover the subject with much depth?
    Ukers’ only has a brief section, which is a bit of a bummer.
