Anybody recommend a good-looking and good-working hot water tower or something for americanos? I'm currently using a small boiler plumbed into a tap on the counter but it doesn't hold enough volume. I need something plumbed-in that can almost boil and that can hold 4 litres (1 gallon) minimum. It has to be good-looking enough to be on the counter! At least as beautiful as thick, caramelly crema!

Thanks for your ideas.

Right. I think I remember you saying that Newco was a family friend or something...I'll check out their small towers.

Its made by newco try to google newco coffee equipment. It's nice! Good luck. If there is something else you want I have some pretty good connections in the equipment side so let me know I can get pretty much anything at a great rate.

JP, let me know what model and I'll look at it on line while you're away. Enjoy the trip. Say hi to Costa Rica for all of us.

I can get one through one of my equip distributers at a good price and its adjustable on the outside on the tank. Its a pretty nice unit I leave tomorrow for Costa Rica to tour farms and mills should be sweet! I can call my rep if you give me a shout in the morning. Hacienda La minita here I come, so pumped!!

Thanks to both of you. The Fetco is pretty nice but 5 gallons is a bit big. I don't think I have space on the counter for that...Maybe. The Bunn is an option I've considered but I had hoped for something a little more post-modern, if you know what I mean.

You may want to consider the ugly institutional looking Bunn hot water tap, then purchase a pumpskin to wrap it in a design or your company logo.
