  1. I can't quite stretch to £2000 I'm afraid at the moment and don't want to insult you with a lower offer. Travel costs would not be an issue. I was working in Coventry on Tuesday 😩. Good luck with the sale.
  2. Hi, hard to tell from the photos but are there any marks / scratches? Thanks
  3. Hello, i have relisted the ECM Synchronika your interested in here 

     

  4. @Benandjaney Not yet. But I've heard the ACS minima is a good machine.
  5. You're probably right!
  6. Are you sure that's not too much coffee?!
  7. Thanks but I'm not sure I could live with the water tank
  8. Hi, I am currently looking to buy my first real espresso machine. I like to make informed decisions and intend to live with my choice until it is beyond economical repair. I want to make great coffee and will enjoy the learning process and using the machine but I'm not really looking for a hobby. Wake up, make a couple of coffees, go to work kind of thing. More at the weekend. I have decided to buy from BB as they are an hour away. Perfect for aftermarket support etc. So I'm deciding between a Rancilio Silver Pro and an ECM Syncronika with anthracite panels.
  9. True. But to be fair it shouldn't have gone faulty in the first place. At least it was within the warranty period. I'm beginning to wonder if anything is made properly these days! I'm struggling to pick a machine at the moment to be honest. Sure I want to make great coffee but coming from an engineering background and appreciating good design, styling and build quality come high up the list for me. I'm not saying I won't buy one...but it does make you think....
  10. I was looking to possibly buy this largely based on perceived build quality. I guess if BB resolved it for you then it's all good. Doesn't fill prospective buyers with confidence though. Hope you don't have any more issues.
  11. What about this? It's just proof of concept at the moment. 60ml black tin jars. I'm thinking about adding self adhesive felt to the bottom of each tin. 227g bag of coffee is approx 12 tins with an 18g dose. I'd be looking at a nicer tube(s), maybe a bamboo one with a magnet on the bottom then keep 2 tubes on top of the microwave. A magnet in the base will stop it from sliding around but allow it to easily be moved for restocking. I've found a suitable bamboo solution that I can butcher. I'll keep you posted...
  12. Thanks. Yeah I hadn't really given much thought to used but will keep an eye on the for sale section 👍
