  1. Hello, I’m just finishing my coffee van and all I need now are, an inverter and 2x leisure battery’s. So after recommendations for a pure sine wave inverter and a couple of battery’s. My setup is a Fracino 2 group Contempo, flowjet pump, and Compak e5 grinder, in a VW T5, so plenty of room. I’m thinking a 1500 watt inverter and 2x 105ah battery’s, which I’m hope will get me through a 8hr day? Thanks Richard.
  2. Hello, what type of inverter do you use? Getting confused with pure sine, modified or just a standard inverter.
  3. Great thanks, I’ve gone for 2x 6kg bottles as they fit nicely in the van.
  4. Hello just after a rough idea on how long the gas bottles last on a 2 group dual fuel machine, it’s for a coffee van and unsure which size bottle to go for. Thanks Rich.
  5. Hello and yes I'll go for that offer, makes it nice and easy if you can collect both. I'll take the grinder off eBay now. Thanks Richard.
  6. Hello I've put the grinder on eBay now but would prefer to sell on here. Open to offers on both grinder and machine. Thanks Richard.
  7. Selling my Gaggia classic and Mazzer SJ grinder, I've upgraded both so no longer need them. The grinder came from Daren the forum and had been refurbished by Coffee Chap for Darren. I got it in 2014 and have used it 2/3 times a day. It's got a couple of small marks on the paint from moving house but is in great working order. Has the clean sweep mod and think the burrs were new for Daren but can't remember for sure. It has a crack in the plastic dosser lens but can only be seen from the inside and doesn't effect it at all. It's a great grinder and I've had some really good espresso from it. My Classic is a 2012 model, comes with a brass dispersion plate, 18g vts basket, naked portafilter and HasBean tamper. It's been descaled regularly and the last 2 years only run on bottled water. First couple of years was tap water before I knew what I was doing. Again it's in good working order and has served well over the years. Looking for £195 for the grinder and £115 for the classic. I'm based in Swanley and would rather have them collected or I can meet up if it's not too far away. Happy to package them up and the buyer arranges for a courier to collect. Any questions just ask, thanks Rich.
  8. Drop bar cafe in Westerham and Velo House in Tunbridge Wells are both good.
  9. Just replaced my classic with a Verona and have a SJ grinder.
  10. Anyone do training in Kent, based in Swanley and could do with some help. Thanks Rich.
  11. I got my Verona yesterday and super happy with it, just need to get some training now as I don't have a clue really. Only had a couple of shots and it's very good compared to my old Classic.
  12. Got a upgrade today, going to need some training now!
  13. Just blew the budget and ordered a Verona from Bella Barista.
  14. Hello I'm looking for a nice secondhand DB machine before I go and buy either a Sage DB or a La Spaziale S1. The cost of the Sage is around £1050 so that's my budget but can move a little for the right machine. Thanks Rich.
  15. Shame it's only the red one, I would take any other colour. Been looking at the Sage DB a while now, as no secondhand DB machines seem to be coming up in my budget.
