This is not the normal type of project here, but copious amounts of coffee is absolutely critical to my thought process!
I have had this late 1950’s Gaggia Monte Carlo two group lever coffee machine sitting around begging to be restored for just too long. I recently I found the seals and parts that I have prevented me from using the machine, so I thought I would spend a little bit of time to give it a new life.
It is a sensational looking machine! It is almost done now, with a bit of tuning and a pair of original steam wands and a bakalite knob and an original indicator bezel – the coffee will flow once more!
