  1. Some developments on this. So based on the many useful comments on this thread (thank you!), my wife (a lawyer) has decided to reach out to CoffeeHit directly to see if there is anything they can do. They weren't able to offer anything initially but have promised to get back to us later this week or early next. As such, I've decided to put the sale of the grinder on hold for the time being. If I get a positive resolution and end up with a fully functional grinder, I'll look to re-advertise the grinder. Again, many thanks for this wonderful community for your support regarding this. It is greatly appreciated.
  2. @stockportman I still have it and haven't done much about it truth be told. You interested?
  3. Thanks Dave, all very good points. The grinder was purchased new from CoffeeHit in April 2017 and was used daily for 2 espresso until early March this year. There are no other unknown issues. To clarify, the machine powers on and works perfect fine without any beans. The addition of beans causes vibrations and noise although beans are still being grinded, just at a significantly reduced rate. Please see a picture attached. Happy to provide more if required.
  4. Hi all, I have a Baratza Sette 270 that I'm looking to sell. The unit has recently started to present with a slippage issue within the motor & gearbox. At best, this could be a minor issue requiring some screw tightening or worse-case a complete replacement of the motor/gearbox. I've been in contact with CoffeeHit (authorised repairer) and they have advised that a replacement motor/gearbox will cost approximately £80. Based on the above, I'm hoping to receive £120 ONO and will be sold as-is. Even if a replacement part is required, the final cost will be £200. However, as mentioned above, this maybe not be required and somebody could end up with a complete bargain. I appreciate this isn't for everyone. I have the original packaging and am based in London E1.

    Gaggia Classic

    Hi Jonny, Not sure if you are still interested but, I have a 2012 model Gaggia Classic (Romania) purchased in Nov 2012 that has just been gathering dust in the cupboard. It was last used March 2017. The machine has the Silvia steam wand modification although hasn’t had the OPV set to 9. It has been exclusively fed with Ashbeck still water. Backflushed with water weekly, and bi-monthly with Poly Cleaner. It was fully descaled every 6 months whilst in use. Comes with the original portafilter, bottomless portafilter with single and double baskets. I also have a spare group gasket and shower screen. I’m based in London E1. In terms of price, I would be looking for guidance as I'm no sure what these are currently worth.

  8. Morning all, I'm interested in purchasing a E61 Grouphead Thermometer and was wondering if anybody is keen to move theirs on. Thanks
  9. Non-weighted version. In good working order. Cleaned regularly. Purchased from Coffee Hit back in May 2017 and used daily since (for two double shots). Complete with original packaging. Based in London. Looking at upgrading to the Niche Zero.

    Terrible Horribly inconsistent. Some days the results it lovely. Others, I won't finish the cup. Hoping to have some time on the weekend to stand in-front of the machine and just practise.
  11. Could I please grab one (58mm) as well? Thanks!

    Hi Farravi, I've recently purchased an Rocket Appartmento. It's a HX machine and doesn't have a PID. I've played around with ratio of 1:1.5-3 and tend to prefer the 1:3 when drinking straight up. I'm currently using a Ibertial MC2. I have plans of upgrading Using bottled Tesco Ashbeck water at the moment with standard full fat milk. Greatly appreciate your help!
  14. Could somebody please PM me the code I'll be sure to use the link on the first post when ordering. Thanks in advance
