  1. Both bought in July 2019 (Minima from BB) and treated and cleaned as should be. Minima only ever on Ashbrook and regular backflush with and without without Pully. Niche burrs cleaned regularly. All boxes and documents/manuals etc. Both work perfectly. I have protected Minima cup shelf and drip tray although latter factory finish could improve. IMS screen, VST and Decent baskets (18, 20 & 22g), 2 and 3 hole wands. All stock bits and pieces. On average probably about four or five espresso per week and similar through the Niche. I'm 'pondering' on selling both, together or ind
  2. Looks very nice! Was it the Exobar for £25. Where was the cupboard from please? Nice also!
  3. They do all sizes. Lovely and thick too!
  4. Well that's what I thought....then I asked one retailer who had loads of them in stock, which one for the Minima, he said none of them! https://www.theespressoshop.co.uk/en/Nuova-Simonelli-Bottomless-Portafilter-with-21g-Basket---98050037/m-2860.aspx?gclid=Cj0KCQjwupD4BRD4ARIsABJMmZ-FWjK_6Cdq3tHryFY1yBBdrNNkveF8TXm49PK2w5w2pFcKhUARAAMaAmcBEALw_wcB
  5. The BB recommended bottomless portafilter for the Minima is out of stock. Could any Minima owners using a Bottomless PF please let me know which one they use? Cheers.
  6. Nice looking machine....if I knew what it was! 🤔
  7. https://www.waitrose.com/ecom/products/method-stainless-steel-cleaner/080414-40926-40927 this is good
  8. Very nice clean and uncluttered set up.
  9. The rechargeable batteries in our cordless dect phones are showing their age and run down quickly now. They are AA 1200mAh 1.2v. Will any AA rechargeable batteries be okay. ie 2400mAh? Cheers
  10. Ah okay! Didn't know either about that. Hopefully then it will just be a tweek to resolve this. I really like the Minima, and even more so for its DB value.
  11. Just re read your post. I didn't realise that BB had stopped selling the Minima. A shame but then clearly, if I was @tuchop, it would have to be the Mara. But if it was me I'd still go for a DB.
