  1. Hi Sean - very sorry, I've just been away on holiday and stupidly did not think to check this forum whilst away! Back now and if you'd still like these I'm happy to do £30 posted if that works for you. Please PM with your address details. Thanks and regards, Bill
  2. Hi All Having just sold my Fracino Piccino, I have found three brand new unopened filters in the cupboard! These retail at £19.99 each on Bella Barista. Happy to sell for half price ie £30 the lot as they are no longer any use to me. I guess postage would be £5-ish for the three (or collection from Gerrards Cross if you are local). Please message me if you are interested. Thanks and regards, Bill Hester https://www.bellabarista.co.uk/bwt-bestcup-premium-water-filter-type-m.html
  3. Thanks guys! Great to know I'm not the only one loving the MaraX One question - does the walnut knob upgrade include the portafilter handle? Or is this a separate purchase? If so, any worries in getting them to match? Lovely setups - this is a wonderful hobby isn't it? Cheers, Bill
  4. Hey guys - thanks so much for the interest! Sounds like NitJay this one is coming in your direction Incidentally, I did try disconnecting the limit stat and reconnecting (as that had gone about five years ago and I learned about that issue! - replaced with a new part). However this didn't make any improvement. The water pump was working (also replaced a couple of years ago ) and the water was flowing - just coming out tepid. Seemed to be consistent with boiler element. Later I tried it again just to see (my wife urged me, she was DESPERATE for coffee!!!) and when I turned it on it tri
  5. Hey fellow coffee lovers The short story is that I bought a Fracino Piccino c.ten years ago, and it has been the love of my life. Two flat whites a day and - paired with a nice Ascaso grinder - it has long remained one of the best purchases we've ever made. One morning a couple of months ago the water went luke warm from the group head, and I suspected the boiler element had packed up. As I had been thinking of upgrading for a while, I went ahead and coughed up for a Lelit MaraX (which we also now love). So I now have the Piccino sitting to one side looking very lonely! Whilst th
  6. Hey Coffee lovers Newbie to the forum here. So quick potted history - I have spent the last ten years getting to know a Fracino Piccino - two flat whites a day for my wife and I, and it has long remained one of the best purchases we've ever made. A couple of months ago the water went cold, and I suspected a boiler element. It was time for a change, and after MUCH deliberation we were so pleased to catch one of the new Lelit MaraXs that came into Bella Barista (they sold out within the day!). Couldn't be happier with the new machine, it's beautiful inside and out. Matched it up with a
  7. Very good idea - I will do that! Thanks again guys, hope you are keeping safe and well Warm regards, Bill
  8. HAHA Well I have spent the last ten years getting to know a Fracino Piccino - two flat whites a day and it has long remained one of the best purchases we've ever made. A couple of months ago the water went cold, and I suspected a boiler element. It was time for a change, and after MUCH deliberation we were so pleased to catch one of the new Lelit MaraXs that came into Bella Barista (they sold out within the day!). Couldn't be happier with the new machine, it's beautiful inside and out. Matched it up with a Eureka Mignon and never looked back. So I'm going to put the Piccino and Ascaso gri
  9. Ah okay thanks guys. So does this count as post #2 or do they all have to be OPs? Sorry - so lame / high maintenance I know!!!!!
  10. Hey Guys Sorry for the newbie request!! I'm just baffled as to why I can't open a new thread on the For Sale forum, but all others are fine. Is there something more I have to do in terms of profile etc? Very grateful for any guidance Thanks and warm regards, Bill Hester
