I think the group boiler is nickel plated copper while the steam boiler and group head are nickel plated brass. Some of the newer machines have dropped the plating from the group boiler and it just looks like copper. Only the exterior metal panels of the newer DREAMs and the steam wands of all machines are stainless steel.
