Well yes, this would nicely solve the problem of enough steam for making microfoam for a real cappu. The espresso problem (water at 92 deg C and 9 bar pressure) isn't solved with a steam boiler... however, I could envision a small, steam powered pump and an auxillary water tank with steam pipes for heating and a purely mechanical thermostat. I'd like that, but for now a have to be content with my electric powered Miss Silvia (waiting to be PIDed).
