  1. Haven't used one myself but they seem to get recommended here quite often. Common sentiment being they last very well and considering the one listed is almost 20 years old, that's a good thing. They also tend to sell upwards of twice that price second hand.
  2. Have you looked on adverts? https://www.adverts.ie/small-kitchen-appliances/mazzer-super-jolly-grinder/20875521
  3. https://www.adverts.ie/small-kitchen-appliances/mazzer-super-jolly-grinder/20875521 Located in Ireland but postage costs aren't that bad, probably needs new burrs but great price anyhow.
  4. Time is my only problem with that strategy, I have none of it right now. I baby my stuff too so buying and selling is no problem for me if I am to upgrade in steps. That was my only concern, the 57mm group. But I like the stock look anyway so once replacement stock parts are available it's not so bad. I might keep an eye on second hand machines for a few weeks and see if anything pops up.
  5. Hey ho, back again, roughly 2 months after purchasing a gaggia classic and a europiccola in the same week (can never make up my mind). Both are superb machines, pros and cons to each though. Bought them while on lockdown to tinker with, and while I'm now back at work and minding 2 wreckers on my days off, I don't have the time to tinker at the minute. So I want to consolidate them to one machine for the time being. My end game is something like a rocket apartamento, simply because I love the look of it and it makes coffee. But that's something I'll need to save a few bob for going forward and treat myself to on a birthday or xmas. My needs are very simple. 2-4 americanos with cream per day, no frothing of milk generally, so dual boiler etc not really an important aspect for me. Maybe 1 day a week I'll need to make 4 coffees in a row. Would like a pressure gauge & PID, and I do love my aesthetics. So I'm looking to spend ยฃ500'ish right now on something that looks nice and makes a nice coffee. I've narrowed it down to the Lelit anna 2. Looks nice, has a PID, pressure gauge and can be got under budget. So is there anything around that price I'm overlooking that might be a better buy? Is there something in that price range second hand that would make sense? Maybe something to post a wanted ad for? Do I already have my answer? ๐Ÿ˜† Cheers.
  6. I know, it's a good thing I didn't put that on Instagram, I'd be mortified ๐Ÿ˜‚ Ya I had a look under the base and there is a bit of light aged rust throughout, the kind that will come off with a bit of sanding. The rust under the tray looks ok, but would need a bit more work to fix I reckon. The screw goes in and out fine so it'll be grand if it's kept dry by a careful owner. Exactly, it's the metal one. ๐Ÿ˜
  7. I would describe the overall condition as very good. Slight bit of rust under the drip tray but not something that bothers me personally. The manometer was retrofitted, there was serious scale buildup in the boiler which I've seen to with a mix of different descalers. I pulled some shots and it works great but at this moment in time, with 2 small kids and a seriously clumsey wife (not a coffee drinker/forum user thankfully) ๐Ÿ˜‚ it's just not the best machine for this household. I can see myself owning one again in the future but I'd rather someone enjoyed using it over me hiding it in the attic for 10 years ๐Ÿ˜„
  8. Thanks guys, it's pretty much stock and well looked after. Have enjoyed using it but I've got a roaming eye unfortunately, which usually costs me money ๐Ÿ˜‚
  9. Fair price for a 2014 gaggia classic in perfect condition? Just cleaned and descaled, replaced group head gasket with a silicon one and comes with original portafilter and a naked portafilter with 21g basket. Cheers!
  10. Have a 1989 Europiccola I picked up recently in ok condition. It was leaking from all over so I striped it down and replaced the seals, now it works perfectly. It has the sight glass manometer which was not working properly when I got it but I've fixed that. Comes as stock with original portafilter. Wondering how much I should be happy to get for it. Have my eye on something to replace the la pavoni & gaggia classic so will likely sell the two of them. Cheers.
  11. Got a lovely new towel from @MildredM today, thanks a mill! Love the packaging ๐Ÿ˜‚
  12. Bottomless portafilter for the classic and some new beans today. Came with a 21g basket so I'm looking forward to trying out a larger amount of coffee than I'm used to (16g) in the cup.
  13. Cรฉad mรญle fรกilte! ๐Ÿ™‚I think you've skipped to the top of the list as far as gear is concerned, that's actually my dream combo right now. I'm hoping to go another few years before treating myself to those though, enjoy the set up!
  14. Last pizzas I made, not my best but tasty. ๐Ÿ˜‹ It's funny how once you make pizza from scratch you never get the craving to "order pizza" anytime afterwards!? It's like "sure mine are better, I'll just make one!" ๐Ÿ˜‚
