  1. View Advert Profitec pro700 with 1 year warranty. I am selling a Profitec Pro 700 with flow control adapter and gauge and IMS Competitition shower screen. There are three portafilters: a single spout a double spout and a rather tatty, but functional naked portafilter. A kit for mains plumbing is included. The machine is in perfect working order and there is only very light cosmetic marking on the drip tray. It has only ever been used with filtered water to remove both chlorine and calcium. I have looked after it well and have used it sparingly. The unit is just one year old and the warranty from Bella Barista extends to 23 June 2022. The purchase is the result of a geriatric brainstorm… I only drink small amounts of coffee and getting the best out of this very nice machine is, quite frankly, beyond my competence. I will buy a less complex machine to replace it. My terms are that collection must be made from Cardiff in person. I want the purchaser to satisfy him/herself that the machine is as described, is in good working order and makes coffee to a high standard. The machine is, I think, realistically priced because I am looking for a fast, straightforward sale. The price I paid was £2300, so there's quite a saving on the new price. I have sold items on this forum before and always to everyone's satisfaction. Advertiser cogent1 Date 01/06/21 Price £1,500 Category Machines

  3. Strangely enough tripleshot, because I have a benign tremor in my arm, I can't hold the jug suspended, so I use your technique. I rest the jug on the smaller grid that comes with the Profitec and position the wand just on the surface of the milk. I get good silky foam, so that's not a problem. Perhaps I should tolerate the slightly long steaming time. But on balance, I think I'll try the 4-hole option. Is there such a thing as a 3-holer?
  4. Thanks for all the advice. I have a 2-hole tip. I always purge the wand well before steaming. I purged before steaming this morning, waited for the pressure to stabilise at 1.9 bar and then steamed 200cc of milk at 10c: The pressure immediately dropped to 1.4 bar and stayed in that region throughout. It took 35 seconds to reach 60c, by which time the temperature had dropped to 126. It took 45 seconds for the pressure to gradually recover to 1.9 bar . I upgraded from an ECM Barista, where the steam pressure never went above 1.5 bar and which took about the same time to reach the correct temp. I thought that a dedicated steam boiler would perform better and I believe when I first got the 700 that it had much more oomph. I'm not a speed fiend, but I'd like the process to be over in 20 seconds or so. Perhaps a 4 hole tip is the answer, though I feel that the machine is actually underperforming in this respect and the 4 hole solution should not be necessary....
  5. Well done! After many years, I have perfected the Great White Blob of Latte art!
  6. Sorry, my error, it's 2 bar, not 3. The pressure rises back to 2 bar after 10 seconds when the wand is shut off. It just doesn't seem to be a very powerful burst of steam for a dedicated steam boiler...
  7. I've got the flow control on my Profitec 700. The main gauge shows 9 bar, but the flow control gauge never exceeds 8 bar. is that normal? Can you tell me what is the standard flow on a dual boiler machine with rotary pump? Is a gradual ramp-down the basic technique that works best? Thanks for any advice you can offer.
  8. I've got a recent (Jun 2020) Profitec 700. When warming up, The steam temperature gets to 133, the pressure to 3 Bar. As soon as the wand is opened, the pressure drops immediately to 2 Bar. The temperature drops to 120 after 20 seconds. It takes over 30 seconds to steam the milk to the right temperature. Isn't this rather slow for a dual boiler machine? Or am I being picky?
  9. I've had my Niche Zero for two years now and it's never given me any problems. I am always amazed at how little is retained in the grinding chamber after many months of use. However, grounds from oily beans do tend to stick in the chute at times. That is inevitable, I think. But anything that is retained can be easily dislodged by gently rocking the grinder (and I mean gently) back and forth a couple of times. I don't find that there is any retention inside the chamber itself as a previous post remarked.
  10. Great! Please PM me to arrange payment/Delivery/collection
  11. I think the photos have uploaded correctly now.
  12. Yes, it is as described, but hold back until I can upload photos which will verify what I am claiming. I'll edit the post and load some photos of the actual item. Thanks.
  13. Please see my answer to Timpo. I have had a lot of difficulty uploading the files and I don't know why the system converted my photos to links. I'll try again!
  14. Hello. Thanks for your interest. I did upload photos and they appeared in the draft. Somehow, they must have disappeared when the item was posted. I will try uploading them again.
  15. I am selling a Eureka Mignon Specialita coffee grinder in gloss black, with Chrome chute and touch screen display. This small prosumer coffee grinder has an stepless adjustable grind range suitable for French Press, espresso and even Turkish coffee. Grind duration can be timed or manual. If you own a coffee machine with a portafilter, you can take advantage of the hands-free holder. The large capacity (300g) hopper is ideal for those users who have a large throughput of coffees every day. The grinder is suitable for light commercial applications (eg, a small café) as well as domestic users who drink coffee frequently. The grinder is in almost “as new” condition. It was bought in April 2018 from Bella Barista for £379 and has been used once or twice daily, so usage has been minimal. The transferable warranty extends to April 2020 (see warranty card in images). I am selling because my son has given me a new Niche grinder, which is more suitable for my single-dose usage. The Eureka is in full working order. It comes in its original packaging together with warranty card to April 2020 and instruction manual • Touch screen with 2 Programmable doses, total control of grinding time and continuous model. • ACE system which prevents the formation of clumps and guarantees cleanliness and dose precision. • The large 55mm burrs offer excellent grind dispersion, speed and performance. • “Hands free" fork suitable for any type of filter holder. • Stepless micrometric regulation system patented by Eureka guarantees incomparable grinding performances in terms of quality and precision. • Grinder Motor: 260Watt Bean Hopper Capacity: 300g • Height: 350mm Width: 120mm Depth: 180mm Weight: 5.6kg For a quick sale, I am asking £200 for the grinder, which is almost half-price compared to new. The grinder can be collected from my home in Cardiff or despatched at cost by courier. (this is likely to be no more than £30)
