I am of the same opinion, though a few places tend to just give paper cups when you sit in like Starbucks, though I don't like their coffee. There was a coffee stall at my Uni that had a refillable cup where if you bought they would give you 5 refills and then reduced price after that. Some better places will refill travel cups too, sometimes you have no choice and need coffee.

Congrats! A green Werra. East German. I love the way the film transports/the shutter tensions. The shade is nice too. Doubtless the lenses are good.

Is there a shoe on the bottom to mount the meter?

Erik.

A recently gifted Ricoh 500 (3rd Version). It was super-dirty and likely hadn't been used for many years. A bit of elbow grease and it is now a beautiful, fully-functioning camera.

Along with a fresh cup of morning Nespresso, life is good

Not on this one.
Is there a Werra with a shoe mount on the bottom?

I was asking you because there is a lightmeter in the picture. I wondered if you could mount it somewere on the camera. There is no shoe on top of this Werra. My question was not clear enough, sorry.

Love the whole Werra lineup. I've got a number of them from the regular Werra like this one to Model II, III,IV, and V some in black and some in green. Also have the accessory lenses 35/2.8 Flektogon and 100/4 Cardinar in black and green. One of those cameras I was fascinated by about 10-12 years ago and bought everything in sight I could find. They seemed a bit rarer back then and somewhat plentiful now. Still love the whole design of them and the lenses aren't bad either.

Thanks, I've had it for many years now. ...my morning ritual. It works very well, but takes practice and attentiveness. I usually run a couple of shots as I us a smaller carafe of milk for 7 ounce cappuccino and hate to waste half of the milk. It foams very nicely too btw.

To get both shots just right, it takes a good grinder for consistent grind, but also attentiveness to temperature which can be controlled by the second switch on the side of the machine, and regulating steam.

I've owned two of these machines, and they are as people will tell you, all a it different with regard to how they heat up and so on. They're not that tricky though and worth the time getting things down. I'd say they're a bit of an M9....worth the quirkiness. or even better, like a good Rollei 35 - fiddly but worth the effort.

As for availability, they come up on ebay, and I actually found the one here on Craigslist here in the states for cheap (@200) from a couple who like many wanted a simpler solution to churn out multiple lattes fast.

Hi David,
in Italy it is considered a classic and luxury machine.
On Amazon.it they run from circa 450 euros to more than 650 like this gorgeous one in copper gold and wood:
https://www.amazon.it/Europiccola-ER...macchina+caffe
When I was young I had GAS for such coffe machines.
Alas! Subsequently my doctor asked me to get rid of coffe. I did not obey but I only take one coffe per day for breakfast and do it very light and long (with the Bialetti, another Italian icon).
Just the opposite of Italian espresso
I am pretty and pleasantly surprised that someone in the States appreciates this Italian jewel

Thank you gentlemen! I remember staying at a hotel outside of Lucca and the ladies would serve espresso in the morning from a Grand Pavoni. I mentioned having a small one at home and they lit up with enthusiasm....and served me another on the house I also try to keep to one a day.

The Pavonis on ebay here are pricey so Craigslist is a good option. And I have a couple of friends each of whom own a couple. We joke, you have to have at least two, one for when the other needs to be in the shop for a tune up Mine will be needing a tune up soon because it's been at least two years. I baby it and it serves me really well. I'll try and post another pic soon in color.

Today its Dolce Gusto Cappucino with the Zorki 4 and Konica Pop, Friday it was 2 Desperados and a large Coke with the Zorki at the Red as I'm driven there.

I like a good coffee shop but mobility of late has made visits difficult, I do have the Reusable Starbucks cup that gets a little off the drink price when produced as some places have a cup charge now due to pressure on cutting single use plastic usage.
