  1. Hello and welcome aboard (though as you have been here for a while it's a rather stale welcome 😁)
  2. I'm far from authority but I'd say if you will be making 4 or 5 drinks back to back then a DB is the way forward if you are making milk based drinks. it will reduce the time between drinks as you are able to brew and steam at the same time. Maybe a Profitec 700, Bianca or the Synchronika. Obviously the Bianca has the addition of flow control out of the box if that is something you would like to play with straight away though both of the others you can add at a later date. I have heard the build quality on the ECM machines is really good, so much so that I am waiting to upgrade from my Marax to the Synchronika for similar reasons to what you say, I realize now that I need a DB to deal with the demand of family and visitors. I am not at the stage of profiling yet and still enjoying learning how to make good back to back shots but somewhere down the line I may with to dabble and the option is there to add the flow control kit later if I chose. Maintenance of the E61 group is not really all that big a deal. Backflushing and lubing the cam is pretty straight forward and really shouldn't dissuade you. There's plenty of advice on here and the videos from DaveC are an excellent resource.
  3. Welcome aboard Graeme. there is a plethora of advice on here, enjoy the journey
  4. As the title says, looks good in black. I've spoken to Marko at BB and asked if ECM are making a flow control kit with the olive wood handle, he has heard back from them today and they like the idea and are contacting their supplier to see if it's viable.
  5. @Cully I have MaraX for sale in the for sale forum, feel free to have a look, I may also part with the Niche before October as I have a weber Key coming. The Niche has been used for a week.

  7. View Advert Lelit MaraX Here for your perusal is my very fine, near new condition Lelit MaraX, it comes with the wooden handle kit, a bottomless PF and a wooden handle for the double spout PF that comes with the machine, this hasn't been fitted. It will come with the original black wood kit, original packaging and a lelit distribution tool. It was purchased on 28th December 2020 from BB and the warranty will be transferred. It was used for 2 months around 4 shots per day then I went away to work for over 4 months. It is now back in use as I got home 2 days ago. It has been backflushed weekly when in use, has had 1 chemical backflush and the cam was lubed after it. Only bottled water used, filter is still in the wrapper. original costs: Lelit MaraX - £949 Lelit Distribution tool - £34.99 Wooden kit - £89.99 Lelit bottomless PF - £57.90 Wooden PF handle - £13.44 (unused) Motta Bubinga 58mm tamper - £17.33 (the original lelit tamper is of course included) Tamping matt - £10 This is great kit for anyone starting out on espresso and I'm only selling so that I can upgrade to a DB for making more back to back shots. If you are making 2 or 3 espressos this is ideal, unfortunately I often need to make more or else I would be keeping this. Asking for £950 collection in Central Scotland or buyer arranges courier/pays postage. Advertiser AlanSky Date 19/07/21 Price £950 Category Machines

  9. @NiallJ I will have a maraX for sale soon, just looking for valuation advice (see valuation forum)
  10. Hi folks, looking for a valuation for my MaraX, it has the wooden handle kit, also comes with a bottomless PF and a wooden handle for the double spout PF that hasn't been fitted. It will come with the original black wood kit, original packaging and lelit distribution tool. It was purchased on 28th December 2020 from BB and the warranty will be transferred. It was used for 2 months around 4 shots per day then I went away to work for over 4 months. It is now back in use as I got home 2 days ago. It has been backflushed weekly when in use, has had 1 chemical backflush and the cam was lubed after it. Only bottled water used, filter is still in the wrapper. What am I looking at?
  11. @Stevebee yeah that would likely be what I would do, though I think I'll wait to see what the 1.43 slide in stand is like. Thanks for the info 😀
  12. @Stevebee yes but would also leave the velcro on the top of the machine. My preferred choice would be the tablet at the side or in a drawer out of the way unless I'm fiddling. I would also like to see the usb connection at the back, though I'm being fussy.
  13. @arellim yeah that would be a solution but the 3 holes would still be on top of the machine I guess?
  14. Are you doing a video of this update John? Interested to see how it looks.
