  1. I loved the way the Sette worked, and I tried to convince myself to keep mine - I just couldn't get over how flimsy it felt. For 500 quid I wanted a bit more reassurance. To be honest, I think it's bloody ugly too. But then I hate the look of Niche, so I'm probably in a minority of one.
  2. Nice to see some Carvetii cups there. Excellent roasters!
  3. I got a Sette 270Wi. Chose it because of the 'gravimetric' dosing and ability to switch relatively easily between grind settings. Had to return it as the grind adjustment was faulty and the hopper lid kept popping off every time I ran the machine. I decided not to replace it with another as I was so disappointed with the build quality. It just felt really insubstantial, and I couldn't be confident that something wouldn't go wrong as soon as it was out of warranty. I thought I'd spend some money on a decent set of scales instead.
  4. Not that I'm aware of, but I've had communication from the buyer and I get the impression it's gone to a good home, which is a relief!
  5. As expected, Dave's valuation was unerringly accurate! I'm happy with the final price, I just hope it's going to a good home.
  6. I appreciate the advice - I am by no means an expert, and meant no disrespect with my reply. I think I would just rather not have to sell the machine at all! Thanks for your input.
  7. I've done my homework though. A used Gaggia Classic should get around £200, so I don't think £250 is over-ambitious as a starting price. I've got 25 watchers already, so I've not given up hope yet!
  8. Some chancer's just offered me £130!
  9. Thanks everyone for your helpful advice. Since I've got no realistic idea what the Hexagon will fetch I've decided to see what the market says! I've listed it on eBay here if anyone's interested: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Isomac-Hexagon-Coffee-Machine-/193833786534?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292
  10. Thanks everyone - I suspected it would be difficult to value. It's probably a design that divides opinion, but if it was an HX machine I wouldn't be looking for a new home for it. As it is, it's going to be a wrench. It's actually a brilliant shape for placing in a corner, much neater than a rectangular machine, but it's still a bit of a beast. I'll wait to sell it until things have (hopefully) settled down a bit in the new year. I think the whole Covid/Brexit débâcle means people have got other priorities just now and may not be looking to splash out on a machine like this! Merry Christmas/
  11. Hi everyone, I've just [email protected]'s Izzo Vivi which he sold through the forum - a lovely machine, and an excellent transaction, thanks Gaz! So now I'm coming to terms with having to move my Isomac Hexagon on. I bought it 10 years ago, when I was told it was one of only two in the UK. Don't know how true that is, but I've never seen another. I believe it's basically a Zaffiro in a fancy case. It makes fantastic espresso, really stable temperature and a 700ml boiler which makes pulling several shots a breeze. Once it gets up to pressure it steams really well, but obviously with it being
  12. It looks exactly as I expected - I'll have it! Do we continue this via PM now? Sent from my Mi 9 Lite using Tapatalk
  13. Right, it's nearly Christmas, so I'll take the machine and grinder at the asking price, please! (I know that's impulsive, and I'd still like to see photos if you've got them, but I can see the Izzo in the background of the photos above and I can't resist it.)

  14. Great to hear from you! Leeds is within reach for me - I'm in Cumbria and it's a lovely drive down the A65 - so I'm definitely up for this! I'll enter into negotiations with my wife and get back to you! Sent from my Mi 9 Lite using Tapatalk
