  1. I think it possibly is.
  2. I am trying to get video to upload to show what I mean
  3. I have a Cherub and it’s quite noisy when I switch on in the mornings. My neighbours have even commented that they can’t work out what the noise is at 6am! Anyone else getting the same?
  4. Hi @foges, the portafilter from Fracino is spot on, heavy, chrome and well worth buying directly from them. I would say, buy cheap, buy twice. Call Fracino directly, they are really helpful, you will have to pay P&P but in the long run it is worth it. Good luck ☕️☕️
  5. I've had my Cherub since 2013, used every day and still going strong. I would recommend paying out for new, its a good investment.
  6. Bloody hell, I've literally just got off the phone to Fracino and ordered from them direct. Wish I had known. Will bear in mind for the future. Thanks
  7. Hey everyone, I haven’t posted for years but I’m still a coffee addict. My Fracino Cherub needs a new single portafilter (whole thing with handle and single basket). Any recommendations for where I can get one? I’ve had my machine since 2012/13 and it’s used daily.
  8. Have drained water tank, back flushed, cleaned gasket holder and generally done what I should've done ages ago! She's kicked back to life and I'm about to order a new water filter and thank my lucky stars I don't need to buy a new machine.
  9. Hi guys, I've been away from the forum for some now but I've been using my cherub every day. Today it's let me down badly. I purchased in January 2013 (a group purchase with other members) and have to admit I may have let the maintenance slide a bit. This morning it will make coffee but there is no pressure to froth milk. The bar is at zero. There is nothing on the pressure bar. Any suggestions? I live in Shaftesbury if anyone knows someone close who could take a look. Thanks
  10. Shrink, I have just seen this thread after posting on your for sale thread. I do hope you are OK and I hope things get better for you.
  11. Shrink - are my eyes deceiving me? You're selling the Cherub? Why and what next?
  12. I did try contact Costa/Whitbread but they were not terribly helpful.
  13. Thank you all for your help. Down Under Dylan, please let me know if you find out any more info on the make of the hot chocolate powder. Its the powder which makes the Choco Mocha Latte I am particularly interested in.
  14. Does any CF member here work for Costa coffee? I am after buying some Costa coffee beans but it seems they may be a little hard to get hold of! Also, I quite like their Cocha Mocha Latte and I would like to know which chocolate powder is put into their milk. Please PM me if anyone can help. Thanks in advance.
