I'm putting my Piccino up for sale as upgradeitis is getting a hold on me.
Amazingly small for a DB machine. My kitchen is tiny and this doesn't take up much space.
Fed Ashbeck/Volvic its entire life (I bought it a few years ago on this forum for £420)
Totally reliable, produces very decent shots and froths milk quickly - I upgraded from a Gaggia Classic with PID and this machine is much more consistent.
Grouphead regularly stripped down and cleaned.
VST basket included.
It's not in showroom condition - the chrome on the top is scratched, as is the chrome drip tray inset, and the paint on the right hand side panel is scratched (see picture)
The down side of the Piccino's tiny footprint is that the steam boiler is effectively a closed circuit so can't be easily descaled without returning the machine to the factory. However it's never been used with tap water while I have owned it and I understand the same was true of its previous owner.
Looking for around £300. I'm based in SE London (BR3) and would prefer collection or could deliver within a reasonable distance.
