To: Stan Anyati
 From: Stella Gerraldi
 Date: May 1
 Subject: Cafe Marti

Dear Stan,

I called your shop yesterday and spoke with Andre about my vintage espresso maker. I was surprised that he was able to find replacement parts for such an old machine. He also re-created some parts that are no longer made. Apparently, there is a brass holder for the manufacturer’s nameplate that has not yet arrived from Italy. Once that arrives, the restoration can be completed.

As we discussed earlier, I need the machine delivered by May 7. On May 8 we will celebrate the tenth anniversary of the café’s opening. The espresso machine has always been our centerpiece we use it on all our advertising. Even without the nameplate, I need to have this vintage machine working for our celebrations.

Ink & Toner



Product: Stylero RD525 Three—in-One Printer

Price: Regularly $120.00 Now $99.99 (Offer valid March 1—March 15)


Includes one complimentary Stylero—01(black) ink cartridge with purchase! Stylero color ink cartridges sold separately.


The RD525 is one of our most popular models: a wireless color printer, scanner, and photocopier in one. It’s perfect for everyday printing needs in homes, classrooms, and small offices. Though compatible with many brands of ink cartridges, we recommend our own Stylero-brand ink, which lasts up to twice as long as other products. A three-year warranty is available for $7.95.




(April 3) I bought the Stylero RD525 last month for my home office. I give digital photography lessons out of my home several nights per week and need easy access to color prints for my students” work in my classes. I haven’t had any trouble with the photocopier or scanner, and the quality of the prints is excellent in both color and in black and white. However, I've been experiencing delays with the printer feature at times. There is a five-minute lag between sending my prints from the computer and when the printing actually begins. I can’t use this device for instant prints in class, or I lose valuable class time. I wish I’d bought a different printer, or at least bought the warranty to get it repaired!


Alicia Boisvert




(April 5) I bought this printer for my classroom and noticed the same issue that Ms. Boisvert described. There is a relatively simple fix though. Most printers go into “sleep mode” to conserve energy between prints. If the length of time before entering sleep mode is set for too short a time, there will be a delay between sending the photos from the computer and the actual printing because the printer will need to warm up each time. Make sure you adjust the sleep mode feature to wait at least an hour before going to sleep. The instructions are in the manual. I always turn the printer on a few minutes before class and it doesn’t pose an issue. It’s an easy adjustment and I think the RD525 is a good product for the price.

(B) It can function as a photocopier.

Issue with Baardsen

Posted by: Patricia Canton


I bought my Baardsen washing machine five months ago for use at my bed and breakfast inn. Overall, I have been satisfied with the appliance features. The extra rinse cycle is helpful for guests who are sensitive to Chemicals or perfumes in laundry detergent. I needed a washer with the largest capacity so it could handle my typical volume of bed linens and towels. The main issue with my machine has been an annoying banging sound. It happens sometimes when the guests use the machine. It is a problem because the laundry room is situated just off the patio where guests often dine. I sent a message to the company asking for help and they informed me that the load needs to be evenly distributed in the wash tub. But that didn’t prove to be the source of the problem. How can I get rid of this noise?



Patty’s Bed and Breakfast Guest Services:



Enjoy the lovely spring weather by taking your breakfast, served between 8:00 and 9:30 A.M., on the patio. We offer self-service for coffee and tea around the Clock. The household coffeemaker and tea kettle are next to the stove, and supplies are stored in the cupboard nearby.


Laundry Room:

Fresh towels are provided daily and bed linens are changed weekly. If you would like to use the washing machine, please choose the eco-saving setting. Select your preferred temperature and power setting. When adding detergent, make sure the detergent drawer is closed tightly before you start the machine. If not properly secured, it may open during the rinse cycle and cause a bothersome noise. Also, the extra—rinse option is recommended if you have any sensitivity to laundry soap.
