I know that "kind of love"!

Could someone greet Jonine Versace for me?
Maybe on the Chapel Street Bazaar Facebook page by linking this post?

Challenge: Get David Francis to contact me!!!

As late as a few weeks ago, i stumbled over a Bon Trading coffee maker sold with a maintenance leaflet dating 2005 made by David Francis.
The email address is dead.

From what i can see on many websites around the world, many users would really benefit from his expertise.

Anyone has the leaflet? Or can get me in contact with Dave?

Confirm/Infirm: ECM Coffee museum Heidelberg, Germany ???

Fantastic Jug on this Stella 110E!

(I wrote to them - of course - but until now, no answer)

Indiana Jones and the last crusade (1989)

[Indiana slips and nearly falls into the abyss, but Henry grabs his hand]

Professor Henry Jones: Junior, give me your other hand! I can't hold on!
Indiana Jones: [reaching for the Grail] I can get it. I can almost reach it, Dad...
Professor Henry Jones: Indiana.

[surprised, Indy looks up at his father]

Professor Henry Jones: Indiana... let it go.

(coincidence: STEMAC closed its doors in 1989)

When a Swiss meets an Australian...

Consider this as an Addendum to the Post starting with "Dear readers,..."

The Pregnancy of this Blog took place while i faced a fierce opposition some years ago on an Australian Coffee Website.

One of my "methods" was to find statements that nobody can contradict...
... of course, by meeting the family members, or gathering documents... But also by stating facts.
By this, i mean: calling a cat, a cat.

Yes, "Atomic" is a trademark.
Yes, Giordano Robbiati patented (a little difference to "invented") a coffee maker for personal use.

The list could go on and on. and on.
These "Facts" fill most of the 1900+ posts of the last years.

Let's come back to the mysterious title!

Imagine a Swiss meeting an Australian, this is what the Swiss would say:

"Fritz Lüdi-Zumstein invented the Culinor"

I dare any Australian to say the contrary!

Thank you Lucio for always putting a smile on my face!
