  1. Perfect! Sounds like we've got a deal! If your happy, let's go over to private message to finalise details! Cheers!
  2. Hi Wen, Great! I think I can better than that, my mum lives in St Albans, you could collect it from there, or I could pop it over to you? If so, mum should be visiting for a few days next week, but if not, I'm definitely up on the weekend of the 28th... Also happy to courier if you'd prefer, Cheers! Jon
  3. Hi All, I have a set up to get you into Espresso! I Gaggia Classic paired with an Iberital MC2. This is Pre Philips one (2002) and built by Gaggia in Italy so it boasts a larger 3-way solenoid valve (the newer Phillips models have a smaller 3-way valve and are prone to blocking). It has had the standard steam wand ungraded to the Rancillio Steam Wand for your steaming pleasure. I have adjusted the over pressure valve (OPV) to 9 Bar for a better espresso, and can include the porta-filter with the pressure-gauge if you want to play with it any more. I recently replaced the gasket. It also has a temperature probe to give an idea of the boiler temperature. I have just upgraded my grinder, so am selling my Ibertial MC2 grinder (Doser) - the classic pair to learn the art of espresso! This is a 2006 model. As well as the coffee machine and grinder, it includes the a regular port-filter, bottom-less porta-filter (which I’m going to miss!), single and double basket, and a tamper to get you going (although I imagine you'll want a new one soon! I'm based in Exeter, and would prefer collection, or even local delivery, but also happy to package it up if you're happy to organise a courier etc. Thanks for looking! Cheers J
  4. Hello again! Summer time is coffee time!* Still looking for that perfect intro into espresso?? Pairs perfectly with a Iberital doser MC2 (which I also have to sell!). I'd rather keep it in the coffee forum family, but will go to ebay soon! Make me an offer! Thanks! * Other times of the year are also coffee time!

    Great, I'm happy to offer the asking price of £225, assuming we can work out how to get it! If that's ok, lets pm! Thanks! Jon
  7. Hi rouge55, Back at home now, and having measured it up I think it'll be too big... Especially when my partner saw how big it was going be! I'm going for a mini instead. Sorry to disappoint, and good luck with your sale!

    Hello, that sounds great! It's a shame I wasn't more organised, my mum is on St Albans, and I was up there over the weekend, so I could of collected it then (but was too busy with a birthday BBQ!)... Does it looks like it has 320g hopper? And I can find type and b, but not type e? Any idea of the weight? I guess 10kg? I'll investigate couriers! Cheers Jon

    Hi Dunk, Sorry for the slow reply, missed these messages! I'll measure when I get home (tomorrow). I think it would for really well though. Other problem is my Exeter location! Cheers Jon
  11. Great, thanks guys, I'm away this weekend, and will have a look when I get back.i have a feeling I have 46cm... I am quite tempted though! Need to think about mini hoppers!
  12. Thanks! I couldn't find a page on the Luigi in particular. With the hopper I think it would be too big, but I thought I could get a smaller hopper, modify something. I couldn't find the size of the grinder without the hopper though, the mazzer web page (for their other grinders) only has the height with the hopper - could you please measure the height without the hopper? I'm based in Exeter, so I might be swayed by you're lovely South Devon location! Thanks!

    Hello, I've been meaning to upgrade my Iberital MC2 to something that will be better suited to my Izzo Alex Mark 2. I only have one or two cups most days. I find the MC2 quite difficult to dial in. Do you think that I would see a big improvement from the MC2? Also, what are the dimensions? I need to fit it on my kitchen work top! FYI, I am also wondering about the mazzer luigi grinder. Thanks! Jon

  15. Hi DavecUK, sorry, just saw the rest of your message, will have a look at that link first... thanks. I think I might have been overthinking this! Cheers J
