  1. So now how do you put it on the sold page, any starters for 10???
  2. Sold, many thanks Jim have sent you a message with details.
  3. 2008 La Pavoni Professional along with many accessories, too many to list, £220, buyer must collect as I am a Disabled guy and it would be impossible to pack and send. The machine has had extras put on as you can see from the pics, the only thing wrong with it is that some of the chrome has come off the boiler and the boiler needs tightening, have a tool for that which is yours if you want it. I have used it since 2018 and the coffee is just the best, I have a spinal injury and am unable to pull the main arm down so pointless hanging onto it when someone else could have the pleasure.
  4. Having a scale in a grinder does nothing for me as I like to weigh beans before putting them in the grinder, also what happens if you put too many beans in and you are over weight, the cheaper one is fabulous, been running it for a couple of weeks now and the grind quality is excellent.
  5. This indeed is the only difference between this and the Plus, my only concern with that is if you put too many beans in for your favourite brew how do you then get the extra ones out, you could grind them and them adjust the weight on scales, much easier to weigh the beans before you put them in the grinder.
  6. Just ordered the new WILFA UNIFORM from youbarista.co.uk, at a cool price of £220, can't find any site that can beat their price, so anyone interested go to youbarista.co.uk.
  7. Sad to hear, I got done on Ebay 2 years ago with an iphone 8, I tried the police (NFI) tried a few online agaencies, even contemplated going to the address of the scammers, did not in the end, I too learned a huge lesson that day.
  8. It worked fabulously as long as you use the bag sealer which I didn't, found and used it and worked a treat.
  9. I just purchased this from Amazon, bags are perfect size for the amounts we are likely to freeze, https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07HRKPSBB/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  10. Just bought my Rocko Mountain from @foundrycoffeeroasters.com, if you want a coffee that does as it says on the tin (pack) then this is the coffee for you, think its my 5th bag and always buy when it becomes available, be quick though as it invariably sells out quickly
  11. Great answer, way over my head, just like good homemade coffee, still an interesting read.
  12. Any one read this article found it via La Pavoni Owners on FB, maybe been mentioned before, if so then sorry. https://www.smh.com.au/national/international-scientific-study-says-your-barista-is-making-your-coffee-all-wrong-20200122-p53trn.html

    I had various Nespresso machines over the years, I recently took the plunge to a Lavazza and I have never looked back, they actually taste of decent coffee especially if you are looking for a good coffee hit first thing, plus I am only using one pod whereas I was using 2 Nespresso to get anything like a decent coffee.
  14. Have it in stock now, mine should be arriving today me thinks, can't wait love the taste of ginger.
