This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Hi all,

I have created a new very "Retro" coffee maker, by request, based on a real one:

It is cloned from the "Ciao Time Expresso Machine" and fully functional.
I made also 8 recolors of the mesh:

I can't believe! I always wanted to buy THAT coffee maker, I mean the real one, but it was so hard to choice between red and orange one because both of them were my favorites . Now my sims can enjoy even more colors. Thank you Maylin, you did a really great job on this, looks so real, just amazing!

Thanks a lot for all these nice messages,everybody!

burningglare Sorry, but it's not a Sim in the picture. It's just a wallpaper for Windows...

Sorry I can't take requests anymore!
And I will probably never convert my creations for TS2 to TS3.

LOVE IT!! Thanks for making/sharing this. I like it so much better than the regular coffee maker, so I will be using this alot!

This is so good, it looks very realistic.

Love will humiliate you and hate will cradle you.
Jealousy would be far less torturous if we understood that love is a passion entirely unrelated to our merits.

Maylin! I LOVE this! I collect old kitchen appliances like coffee makers and handmixers and you have NAILED this one, my friend! Absolutely stunning. (My sims never used to drink coffee but you can bet they will NOW!)

Thank you so much.
#23 Old 15th Jul 2008 at 6:52 AM
This is simply great! I love everything, the shape, details, colors, style ... it's perfect. Thank you forever, Maylin, my game wouldn't be the same without your sets Kiss and ciao
