  1. Forum Admin. This is now sold. Thank you everyone for your interest.
  2. Thank you for your offer. Come up to £640 all in and it’s a deal.
  3. Thank you for your interest Allan.
  4. No worries, I’ve typed in a notional DA15 8NR, and Parcelforce 48 hr delivery is as near £40 as makes no difference, and that’s with me physically delivering it to my local Post Office. I have also typed in a more northerly postcode, and the price is the same. I hope this is helpful.
  5. Thank you for your interest. Parcelforce requires a full postcode in order to access the quote. if you are reluctant, I understand. Are we allowed to DM this information or do we contravene the rules here?
  6. I am not an early adopter myself either, but having bought the Mara PL62 after reading DavecUK’s recommendation and his input into the development phase, and having been suitably impressed with the machine’s build quality and coffee, I decided to upgrade after following the MaraX’s development. I have not been disappointed! The dimensions suit its niche in my kitchen, and the added ease of filling of the MaraX with the limited headroom under the cupboards makes it more user friendly. I’m tempted to say they are different machines to use, the X being easier for my relatively undemanding needs. Both are superbly built and a pleasure to own and use.
  7. Respectfully submit you try Google?
  8. Face to face delivery although desirable is wholly impractical. Carlisle is a 6-7 hour drive, Berwick is slightly longer, both one way!! Got to be a courier taking 3-4 working days, maybe 5.
  9. Nothing ever happens quickly here. Either charming or infuriating depending on how manic/laid back you are. All parcels go to Inverness by various local couriers and then the major players take over. No such thing as next day delivery😂. I’m contacting a couple of carriers.
  10. I have used ordinary tap water. It comes from the Loch just over the hill via a treatment plant. Soft water from peat run off. We have no problems with hardness here. I have descaled once and noticed no issues. Regular back flushing about once a week and Cafiza once per 6 weeks. Pretty arbitrary just eases my conscience! Shower head removed about every 3 weeks, but no build ups really. As mentioned elsewhere here, before committing to any shipping, I’d have to know a postcode. You’ll appreciate that we are in ‘Highlands & Islands‘. I would want to use a reputable firm such as DFS or similar. sorry if I’m vague, but this is new to me so be patient?
  11. I’ve bought a MaraX. Before committing to answering re: shipping I’d need a postcode?
  12. I am in Scottish Highlands IV49 Preliminary enquiries about carrier shipping suggests about £50 to most U.K. addresses

    Mara X

    I have the proper Rancilio naked pf from Bella Barista, not a knock-off copy and yes, it does fit my Lelit Mara. I can only assume it would be ok for the X.
