  1. thanks @Dallah that's good to know. Is it from EdekoDesigns by any chance? Been talking to him about his custom Eureka Specialita funnel. https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/784403131/58mm-espresso-dosing-ring-portafilter
  2. I bought a cheap one similar to yours and quite a bit of coffee tends to stick to the funnel. Probably due to static. Tempted to go for the wooden one on Etsy, looks really nice. Just curious as to whether it'll hold hands-free when docked onto the grinder and if any coffee tends to stick to it as well (probably less than on metal, I imagine)?
  3. This has been sold now through Gumtree. Please close this thread. Thanks all.
  4. Sorry for being ignorant, but what's the specific benefits of such a competition level basket? And what's the difference between this one and the other one you're selling? Thanks!
  5. Thanks @El carajillo. £350 was given as an estimate in the Valuation post for the machine by itself, if I'm not mistaken. The same machine, similar age and state, recently went for £400 on eBay. I'm selling it with a decent grinder and am now open to offers. If you're interested, please let me know.
  6. Bump - open to offers and splitting, if of interest.
  7. @jamielee what did you end up going for, if already decided? Having pretty much the same deliberations...
  8. Interesting thoughts. What would be the grinder you’d recommend if not the Specialita, as in which one is the next level up? And when/why would you recommend Synchronika over Technika (or not)?
  9. Hi @duncan-m-w have you made a decision? Also thinking about Technika or Synchronika, and not quite clear on whether a Technika would not be absolutely fine for my daily use (1-2 espresso, 1-2 cappuccino/latte). Cheers!
  10. Curious what you ended up getting. Thinking about the Technika V myself.

  15. @GlenW @Chriss29 my Vibiemme Domobar single boiler is advertised in the sales section. Feel free to take a look.

    Just bit the bullet and ordered some from Notes, seemed to be the best price available at £216. Could not find any used ones unfortunately...
  17. Hi everyone, I'm putting up for sale my Vibiemme Domobar and Iberital grinder which I bought about 10 years ago. They are both in v good working condition, no scratches or bumps. Comes with 2 original VBM portafilters, one single and one double spout (incl. single and double baskets). Asking price is £600 for the package, not looking to split the items. They served me very well over the years but I didn't use it very much for the last 2-3 years really. Before that I would probably use it for 1-2 shots a day, and not every day. It's always been v well-kept, only filtered/bottled water and
  18. Would you do £15 delivered? Will need to buy a new basket separately.
  19. Thanks @Rob666, that's useful info. It's in v good condition, so hoping for a tad bit more ideally. Cheers!
  20. I’d be interested. Do you only usually use it with a triple basket, or would it fit a double one too?
  21. Do you get this one already ground? Looks like you can only get “whole green beans” otherwise.
  22. Great thanks everyone, will check these out.
  23. Would also be interested to know which one you ended up getting @stingray
  24. Hi coffee friends, I've got a Vibiemme Domobar and an Iberital grinder which I bought about 10 years ago from one of my first pay cheques. Was a huge investment for me, but I had spend the previous 6 months working in a proper barista cafe and loved it, so wanted to replicate at home while studying. It's served me very well over the years but I didn't use it very much for the last 2-3 years really (too busy at work, not spending much time at home). Now I've been getting back into it, with lockdowns and all, and was very glad to see that it still works perfectly, and still looks stunning (
