  1. Never in my experience. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  2. One of the important things to consider is where you are in your coffee journey. Not sure if its clear from any of the posts above. 1. I'd say if you are starting out then there is consensus that you can get very tasty coffee from Sage DTP and Gaggia Classic. We can discuss their differences if you'd like. 2. As for grinder, will you be buying a bag of coffee and drinking that until it finishes or do you fancy buying several coffees and alternating between them. If it's the former then your choice of grinders with hoppers is quite vast. If you'd like to alternate then there is not much that competes with the Niche in workflow in its price bracket.

  3. Does anyone know if the rubber grip and ring on the milk wand in the DTP or BE is removable and if so how? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  4. I have the DTP. It's a good started but for steaming multiple drinks can be a drag. 2 at a time is ok. If you can stretch to DB I would. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  5. The grinder is the most important bit of kit you need to focus on. Everything depends on your budget. You can get a used Sage Dual Boiler in eBay for £400 to £500. Used Sage DTP - £170 Used Eureka Mignon - £220 Used medium to large high quality commercial grinder - £150 to £250 Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  6. I haven't used this machine so not sure if the thermojet can match the power of a dual boiler. It would be an achievement if it could. Beyond that the dual boiler will also be able to brew and steam at the same time. It will have better temperature stability. The dual boiler also has a heated group head which is really good. Finally the grinders on the Sages are not highly regarded. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  7. Yes I would. You have a used one? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  8. A bottomless old lady! That won't sell many Pavonis. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  9. Lol sorry. I stand corrected: Ms Europiccola. I goy excited that you had a PF for sale. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  10. Looking for La Pavoni Europicollo 49mm portafilter. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  11. Thanks. I will do soon. I was just wondering if anyone knew any professional services near me. The Duetto's steam boiler is not heating up and the motor is a bit noisy but I need to take it out to properly see what might be the issue. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  12. Any leads on coffee machine technicians in the East or North London area. I have some projects that I haven't got round to fixing. Was wondering if I could get someone more able to do them. Or even better a knowledgeable and charitable forum member nearish me who I could visit with the machines. Could learn a few things! I have a Casadio Dafne and Izzo Duetto in need of attention.

  13. Thanks for this. Really useful. Have you done these comparisons yourself? Answers my question perfectly! The only issue is that I was asking so that I could install it on my Sage DTP and maybe have a go at reducing the OPV to 9 bar or lower. I thought the DTP would have the same group head as the BE. But from the inside of the machine they are not the same. The BE has a custom outlet for the pressure guage. The DTP doesn't. I can still install the guage but after the pump rather than to show actual pressure in the group head like the DTP. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  14. Anyone know where on the guage 9 bar would be? 12 o clock? Perhaps its the same as the Dual Boiler guage. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  15. Hi looking for single and double baskets for BE or DTP. If anyone has spare gasket and water filters that'd be great as well. Please let me know and we can agree cost and postage. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
