  1. SOLD (but not to you). If I could work out how to move it to ther Sold subfolder I would.

  3. Reposting as all the pictures seem to have disappeared from the original! I am selling my 5 year old Gaggia Classic, below, having recently up-caffeinated to a Rancilio Sylvia. I've used the Classic every day and had no serious problems. It has been regularly cleaned (but not back-flushed). Used with soft water only. I haven't fiddled with any of the settings and all the working parts are original, apart from the gasket and steam wand. (New Panarella wand fitted.) At one point it started leaking from the boiler, which I rectified by replacing the sealing washer - no problems since. Pump is a bit noisy. Steam/temperature lamp hasn't worked for a year but I get lots of steam, so it's probably just the lamp. I'd much rather sell it to someone who is happy to get into the innards if and when it needs fixing. Spare gasket included. Comes with original filter holder and naked holder. £100 including UK postage and it's yours. The proceeds are going to YMCA Roomsponsor (shameless charity plug here) so your coffee will taste twice as ethical. Make me an offer!
  4. As requested. Bought from Coffee Italia. As per the ad, it comes with a new-ish Pannarella steam wand and an additional (naked) portafilter. If your tamping skills aren't good I'd advise using the original gizmo, as you have a much better chance of getting the coffee in the cup.

  7. Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, which is my favourite everyday coffee. Mellow and kind to my aged stomach! I don't know any better so I buy it from Booths.
  8. I've enjoyed my visits to Coffee#1 near Coventry railway station. Decent coffee, loyalty card, and good for people-watching. If you have to visit the everlasting work-in-progress that is Coventry, this is probably as good as it gets.
  9. Probably the first film I watched as an adult - Star Wars (the original).
  10. The walnut brings back fond memories. I worked on the Rover Sterling (800) back in the day, when I was actually working in Cirencester. Nice car, if only the build quality had been better.
  11. I received an encrypted message from the Illuminati. Seems they like good coffee too.
