  1. Following an abortive coffee van venture, I am disposing of everything i gathered a few years ago, as I need the room and they're sat, unused: Izzo Pompeii/MyWay LPG Dual Fuel 2-group This may not be the best place for a full pro machine such as this, but I'm a long-time member so thought I should put it here first. Was purchased with the van (Piaggio Ape 3 wheeler, also for sale) in working condition, though it's been sat a while so will require re-commissioning/testing etc. Photos to follow. would like £1250 - am open to offers. based north/north-east. Cheers, NBN

  3. It is time for another restoration as my Gaggia is languishing for its replacement heating element and I want to keep my hands busy. With the recent purchase of the Faema Zodiaco I originally thought I would use it as parts for the President, but now I am going to use it a practice machine before doing the same thing to the President. The reason I am able to do this is because the two machines are very similar in layout and design with the body panels off. The biggest difference is the design of the boiler. The President has two large gaskets holding the boiler ends with 12 bolts each, while the Zodiaco boiler is one piece. Stuff like the water level, pressure gauge, water fill valve, etc are identical. What will happen is as I go through steps to get the Zodiaco running I will emulate similarly to the President, and if it goes well, both machines will be running within a short span of each other. It also saves on shipping costs since I will be ordering parts for both at the same time. Initially I was hesitant in buying another machine last year after already purchasing my Bosco, Gaggia Tell, and home lever machines, but I have decided to fall fully into Lever Espresso Machine Acquisition Syndrome (aka LEMAS). In the process I hope to learn useful things I can use beyond espresso, specifically in the handyman trade. Some before pictures. The seller was literally five minutes from where I lived in Italy and he delivered it to me at a Gas Station/Hangout that is managed by a friend. A few things were missing, notably a portafilter (the other one damaged as well), the manometer, and most of the gas flap on the front panel. He did provide a replacement portafilter and manometer. For the price I paid I thought it was fair enough. The pipe layout on the President is nearly identical to the Zodiaco so far. Loosening them has been simple and no extraordinary efforts were required outside of a wrench and mallet. I can already see the real issues will crop up with the loosening of the boiler cap bolts, 24 of them to be exact. I know there is a method of taking these out even if they are fused to the aluminum shims but I need to remember where I keep the link on doing this. The heating element was already removed and eventually I will also take out the two rusty flange bolts. Since this was a gas machine the element has never been used, albeit there is scale on it. It is a 2kW element 220V. Looking in the element hole there is still water held in the boiler!!! I am surprised it has never evaporated completely but I guess it could be worse...It does not smell grungy. I already took off the upper part of the groups to compare to the Zodiaco groups. The springs will definitely be replaced and some cleanup is required. The flow valve and shut off valve are completely fused on both groups and some heat will be required to take them off. The body panels are in very good condition. I will disassemble the lower parts as they have corrosion on them and need to be cleaned off. I will likely keep the glass back in original condition, but if I have enough funds laying around I may purchase a replica of a different colour eventually. In terms of chrome items the only parts I consider need rechroming are the levers, but I may purchase replica stainless steel ones if the price is right. For now I will leave them be. I sometimes consider myself a little overzealous in documenting everything I do, but I realize that this may prove useful down the road so I will continue nonetheless being this comprehensive in my process, whether you like it or not ?
  4. Now I promised myself the next machine I bought would be something a super vintage, early 50's chromed Gaggia or Faema lever, but I succumbed to an opportunity that I was not expecting initially: a 2 group Faema Zodiaco from the late 70's that was no more than 10 minutes from where I live for a very fair price. It works, albeit the heating element gasket leaks and caused some rust on the frame but is nothing serious. I also had to drain the boiler of old water but everything is there and it is also gas powered. The ANCC number is 119077, but like my Tell it is missing the 7th digit, or 1,119,077. This means (likely) that it was made after 1979. I will need to find a date on the machine to confirm this. It was listed since early November but I waited to see if someone else wanted to buy it since I already have other machines, but after checking the machine out in person the seller told me nobody was seriously interested in it. She was the original owner whose father bought it new for a bakery before it sat in the kitchen for a while. Besides the rust there is no serious damage on the machine. There is a missing corner piece on the plastic cup holder wall and the springs need replacing. Originally I wanted the machine to use for parts but here is what I will be doing. Since the springs need replacing anyways I will take apart the groups and borrow the lever fork and shaft for the President when I get around to restoring that to replace the damaged forks. When I am done with the President I will then buy replacement forks and shafts for the Zodiaco. Whether I switch back the parts with the original machine will remain to be seen but no matter what this will be a fine addition to my collection. Here is a comparison of the portafilters and levers. The President's lever is chromed and has a curved base on the base of the thread while the Zodiaco is more boxy and I think made of Stainless Steel. The left portafilter is the President, the middle portafilter the Zodiaco, and the right portafilter a modern reproduction. It appears the latter tries to copy the President style in the handle more. One final comment is the Zodiaco, though bigger in size than its predecessor, is much lighter than the President or Tell. I estimate it weights a little more than my Bosco, or 50 kg give or take.
  5. I was warned when I got my Pavoni that it would be the slippery slope to wanting more, did I believe them? Of course not, I scoffed and claimed that it’s totally ridiculous to suggest that getting your first machine could send someone charging head first down the rabbit hole. So anyway I now have this...... Bezzera Strega and Fiorenzato F64E. Oooops.
  6. Micro Casa Leva S1C is an espresso machine with lever offered by Elektra for several decades. I am selling my trusted Elektra after owning it for about two years. This beautiful lever machine produces amazing layered espressos and the steam wand is second to none. It has been just serviced by Ferrari espresso, the authorized dealer for Elektra in the UK, who have confirmed that the machine is in fine condition. Comes with portafilter, original box, and certificate. Please note that the grinder in the pictures is not included. I am selling this at a 50% discount (currently cheapest retail price is ~£1,100) so £550 on gumtree. I will entertain serious offers on this forum though as I want it to have a nice home. I have more pictures which I can share if there is interest. PS: I am selling it as I am saving for a DB machine.
  7. Bought this new at the end of 2015. Has been in storage for the last 2 years as I bought a Vesuvius and L1 and I wasn’t using it. In perfect condition and comes with the spares shown . These use a thermosiphon to heat the group and are very temperature stable, being able to leave on all day and is a good steamer (good sized boiler) Comes with 2 double spout portafilters, 1 bottomless, 3 double baskets, 2 single , 2 spare shower screens, spare set seals and gasket , Motta Tamper, OE dosing ring, spare heating element plus a piston removal tool. This makes changing the piston seals easier as it’s not as simple as on an L1. Collection only either from West London or at one of the Farmers Markets I do at Barnes or Stroud Green (near Finsbury Park) This is a great way to get into levers and am looking for £400
  8. I have a Cremina 67 lever machine for sale. I did a complete strip down and restoration which took about 3 months to complete. The asbestos was removed from the boiler and the whole machine was thoroughly cleaned. I have the original PF handle with double basket and steam wand but have upgraded these to modern equivalents. The pressure stat, power light, power cable and all seals have been replaced. It is a fully functional, reliable machine with a tiny (10.5" x 7.5") footprint and is very well made weighing in at 8 kilos. I'm looking for £1000.00 and am happy to deliver up to 200 miles from Edinburgh. Buyer would need to arrange/deal with insurance for delivery over a greater distance. Photos of work done can be found here;
  9. My final year of university has arrived as I moved in yesterday, and I brought with me some goodies to last me the one semester I will be here for: My Bosco Sorrento and Eureka Olympus 75. I got lots of accessories. This includes a Passalacqua Tazzino (a big cup to hold sugar packets), a Kimbo napkin dispensor, Motta accessories, and my framed barista certification. I have some cool cups as well including the red and blue cup from my favorite bar in Naples, Gran Caffè Ciorfito. My roommates (all well vetted for those concerned for safety) and I will probably OD on coffee within the week! ?
  10. Due to file size restrictions this will be done over multiple posts so bear with me! After 13 months of waiting after placing my initial order, my Bosco Sorrento finally arrived. As I partially type this out it is currently warming up for the first time without issue besides a slight leak from the manual water knob (if anyone has a suggestion on how to fix that please tell me!). A quick recall of how I ended up here today. I lived in Italy for just over five years, where I got into espresso, and due to that I was able to obtain espresso machines for prices that far undercut those in the US. This included purchasing the Bosco, which I got without paying for distributor and shipping costs, the latter occurring due to my affiliation with the US military, which pays for a move. I purchased two machines prior, a La Pavoni Professional and Elektra Micro Casa a Leva that I heavily used in sophomore and junior year in college in New England, and for my senior year I intend to bring the Bosco to my dorm, to the delight of my roommates (in terms of security for the machine I fully trust my roommates and the campus security for my dorm for anyone concerned). My Bosco is a 110V one group Sorrento with orange panelling and wooden knobs/handles as add ons Now to the fun part and namesake for the thread: the unboxing. The crate my Bosco was held in is quite durable and well built. There are 12 screws each holding the top cover and part that connects the upper wall to the secured bottom pallet. The machine is protected first by layers of inch thick styrofoam followed by bubble wrap. Finally there is cellophane wrapped around the machine that also secures the box containing the accessories for the machine. In the machine itself all removable panels (drip tray, grill for drip tray, and cup holder) had pieces of bubble wrap placed to prevent scratches from wobbling during transport.
  11. (Sorry if this is the wrong section to post in - please let me know if it is and I will move it). I am after recommendations for a lever machine upgrade. We currently use, every day, an Elektra MicroCassa Lever and a pre-milemium LaPav Lever Professional. My frustration is the over-heating, especially on the Elektra, as I have now to regualry make 3-4 drinks at a time and they are both incosistant. What's my upgrade options? Criteria: -Home use -Not switched on all the time: only used 2-3 times a day, but is used every day. -Reliable , needs to just work; I don't mind having it prof serviced. -Single lever, I don't want a big commercial dual lever. This is for our home kitchen, not a cafe. -Budget is up to 2.5K -Makes 3-4 constant drinks at a time. -Primarily used for milky drinks: caps, flat whites etc. Quality velvet milk is important. -Does not need to be plumbed in, but could be if needed. -No horrible plastic trim. -We are good at our grinding (thanks Simon for the Mazzer) and are precise. -We don't mind having to learn and 'get gud'. It can be complicated, I don't mind putting the effort in to learn. -Must be a lever - we love the theatre, simplicity, reliability and challenge. What should be on our shortlist?
  12. Let's setup the scene: Here I am just arriving in Italy to my parent's place for my last summer here before I move back, and the very first thing I am doing after waking up from the post-flight partum sleep is going out into the village I live in (Gricignano di Aversa) to buy and pickup and rather classic lever posted on subito.it: the Faema President. I got a pretty good price as well if I say so myself and I could not believe my luck when it listed its location! It is complete except for the following: the mercury pressurestat and neon light in the back (the wiring is still there for it). One portafilter is original with a chipped bakelite handle and another is a reproduction, as is the steam arms and manometer. I am pretty certain this machine was originally gas powered and hence explains the missing pressurestat and the fact it has a wobbler weight instead of a safety valve. One oddity is the copper tube connecting the boiler to the manometer is snipped, presumably with the original one! There is some rust on the frame but I can have it sandblasted when I strip everything off the frame. The chrome is very decent as well, and will not do any rechroming besides maybe the handles, which have some rust on them. The back glass frame isn't cracked but there is some flaking with the decal. The original cup panel on top is flawless which is a nice plus. I will obviously need to replace all the gaskets but nothing that is unobtanium (unlike my gaggia) is missing, which is nice. When I return to the states this and my Gaggia Tell will be restored. I estimate a few hundred pounds to fully get it running again. Just for kicks I weighed the drip tray, which clocks in about under 2.5 kg.
  13. I feel like I should start off by saying this is not a review. Rather just my thoughts on the machine and what I think the pros and cons are. And a little bit about my journey to this point. **I realised after writing this that I do go on quite a bit, apologies in advance A little background. I started off with a Morphy Richards machine which I found on sale for £50 brand new. It served me really well for a couple of years and when the group head gasket needed replacing I figured it would probably be best to replace the machine. From there I moved on to a gaggia classic and a bodum bistro grinder. I know the bodum grinder isnt great, but for another 2 years I was quite happy and getting some tasty cups of coffee. Results were however quite inconsistent. I stumbled across this forum a few months ago looking for some tips on how to service the gaggia and from there things escalated, quickly! It took me all of a week or two after joining that I had to upgrade my set up. I needed to. I was losing sleep over the lack of excellent coffe - see what I did there? I ordered the Niche as it seemed to fit me best all round, especially considering the price point. Next it was time to find a suitable machine. Thoughts flowed and changed daily. Budgets increased over night. What seemed ridiculous one day, was reasonable the next. Regardless after many many hours trawling through this forum and the rest of the internet I convinced myself I wouldn't be happy unless I had a Londinium. @The Systemic Kid was extremely generous and offered me the opportunity to come to his house with my grinder and some beans to try out his LR then to try his sons L1. This was something I couldn't pass up and it really helped me make my mind up. And so it arrived. My first thoughts were damn this thing is heavy. After several hours of removing all the protective film on the panels and getting it set up, I got my first taste of Londiniums excellent customer service. The pump sounded like it was continuously pulling air after several hours of turning it on for a few seconds then off for 30 minutes(as per instructions), nothing seemed to be happening. So I emailed Reiss asking when would be a good time to call. Within a couple of minutes we were on a WhatsApp video call with him talking me through how to go about diagnose and fix the issue. Which turned out to be just some air trapped in one of the pipes and it was sorted in a few minutes with Reiss giving me instructions. Being 10pm at this point, caffeine was not a great idea but I just couldn't resist. Ground up some beans pulled the lever and the coffee came gushing out. This happened on the next shot too. Third shot came out near enough perfect! A beautiful pour from the bottomless portafilter and steaming milk was far far easier than on the gaggia. I shared the flat white with my wife and she enjoyed it too. Always a bonus when the boss approves It's been a month since that first shot. Since then about two flat whites a day have been made on it. It's been and still is and absolute pleasure to use every day. That feeling of specialness hasn't gone away and I don't think it ever will. The panels so beautifully made and the wooden accents just ooze luxury. To me there is nothing quite like the sound of the coffee dripping into the cup during a pull with no noisy pump. The pump does come on during pre-infusion, but it's quick and quiet. A great improvement over the pump used in the L1. I am far from capable of describing how the coffee tastes. It's not my strong point. What I will say though is that I've had 5 different types of beans in the last month and with the niche and Londinium 4 of them were really easy to dial in and get excellent tasting coffee after 2-3 shots. Even the first few shots from each batch of beans were far from sink shots with the grind being quite off on some of them. The 5th one I did get right eventually, but I blame my lack of experience rather than the equipment. Build quality is what you'd expect - sturdy and strong. Nothing feels cheap or like corners have been cut. The inside of the machine is put together well, even for someone who is not very technical, I don't forsee any problems that people will face if they have to replace parts during the machines life. Along with having Reiss ever ready to help, repairs should be dead easy. Two points I'll make here is the welds on the inside of the drip tray are visible - not a big deal at all as you only see this when cleaning the drip tray. And secondly the water tank lid comprises of two parts, a metal plate on top and a black plastic cover underneath. These are held together by glue strips, mine has come apart I suspect due to heat. I haven't bothered contacting Reiss as I don't see this as an issue, a smal strip of double sided will fix the problem. Ease of use - with a lever once you know the do's and don'ts ie when pulling the lever down don't let go till it's locked into place, it's dead easy to use. Leave it to warm up for an hour before using(smart plug is highly recommend) and off you go. No need for cooling flushes between shots, temps are rock solid. This results in consistency which is what we all strive for. Something that was close to impossible on my gaggia. The LR is surprisingly forgiving too, so the grind does not always need to be absolutely perfect to get a great shot. Channelling has also been minimal and I don't consider myself to be a great barista. The only downside to a lever like the LR is you can't stop the shot at your desired weight and there is a max that you can get out of it.I knew this going in though and it's a bit of a faff for me due to my sink being quite far away from the machine, I've since become quite good at pulling my cup away and sliding another cup in its place with minimal mess. If you've read through all of this to hear my thoughts on the digital pre-infusion, I'm sorry to disappoint but I haven't played around with it yet. I wanted to get a feel for the machine and the grinder(which was only a couple weeks old when I got the LR) before adding in another variable. Currently I'm working my way through a KG of Rocko mountain from foundry, which as of yesterday I nailed the recipe so I may start tweaking the pre-infusion pressure this week now that I have more than 250grams to play with. I'll update this thread in the future. Hope my thoughts help someone out there, if not and I've told you everything you already know at least I killed some time on a quite day in the office. The bottom line is that if you're considering the LR but are unsure just do it. I had doubts. I questioned whether it would be worth it. I sat trawling through pages and pages of forums and watching tons of reviews on most of the machines upto that price point. And if I could do it all again would I change anything? Yes I would. I would've ordered the LR months earlier and saved a lot of time debating with myself!
  14. Ive just swapped the cam over on the Vesuvius and was going to just add some lube to aid it. What are you using for your cams or levers etc? Ideally something I can buy locally as im inpatient. Thank you
  15. Hello fellow members, I was wondering if Cremina is a good choice for my first tries with levers? I have not decided on 100% for it but just wanted to hear you thoughts about the idea. Why I liked it so far it looks stable I think it is important for levers, you can play with pressure, its chamber with piston looks bigger than Pav. Many thanks!
  16. Hi all, Last month I was able to snag a Gaggia Tell 2 group machine for an absolute steal, but part of that deal was given due to a key part missing from the machine: the drip tray. My machine has no tray or grill, and I have been hunting for a possible replacement for a bit now. I am posting here to inquire if anyone has knowledge on where to source a possible replacement. Everything else is present with this machine which is fortunate. I have contacted 10+ vendors at this point including Ascaso and Enrico Maltoni (he can do it but only if I have him restore it for me, which I respect but declined) with no luck. No matter what happens when I begin my restoration I will update the thread as it goes, which will probably begin this summer when I am off from uni. Cheers! The ANCC tag id is 107459 and Gaggia id of 81965 Ryan

  18. Courtesy of DFK comes a Mk1 Bruni Brunella - in theory a straight forward pimp as its complete, well straight forward apart from a passenger. The condition now and the passenger ! Ok its small but it looked alive - 'bejesus' I said or something similar
  19. I recently bought an original L1 on the forum. Unfortunately moving it from place to place resulted in the OPV valve giving up and restricting water getting to the boiler. Reiss supplied a new trombone pipe which solved the issue although not before I had removed the boiler, heat exchange pipe and carried out a full descale, bending two pipes in the process. Considering I'm not the original owner, Reiss's help in supplying replacement pipes and getting running again was absolutely amazing. Decided to do some temperature testing to see what pstat setting I want and what effect it has. Had one thermocouple on the group at 9 o'clock half way up the group. The other was in the portafilter, a few mm below the surface when filled with 16g of coffee. The way the lever works meant that filling with coffee was the only practical way for me to restrict the flow of water during a normal shot. Did 5 shots back to back. The red line is group temp, the blue the portafilter probe. All had 16g in, 32g to 34g out in 30s Shot 1 : Cold portafilter, 8s preinfusion Shot 2 : 8s preinfusion, flush just before shot Shot 3 : 18s preinfusion Shot 4 : 8s preinfusion Shot 5 : 18s preinfusion Once finished the group stabilised at 86.4c ongoing. Findings (on a very small sample) 1. To reduced brew temp by a couple of degrees use a cold portafilter. 2. A flush before the shot raises the group temp which in turn increases brew temp by 1c - 2 c 3. Didn't see much impact on temp between 8s and 18s preinfusion - I thought the longer PI would lower brew temp. 4. When I reduced pstat to 1.2bar, the group temp lowered by about 1c which should impact brew temp. The shots look longer than 32s but I left the portafilter in a wee bit to avoid the sneeze before removing. Happy that consectutive shots were temp stable although I wouldn't flush post shot if you are doing one after the other as group temp may creep up. With more time between shots I would as the group has time to regain its equilibrium. Both the group and shot temp look to be stable and repeatable and the shots are tasting very good as long as I dose lower. A basket that I can fill 18g on a Vesuvius was nearer to 16g on the L1. Otherwise the coffee would hit the screen. Will do a similar exercise on the Vesuvius as I know the group on that is stable from the group thermometer and as I have been using it longer know it produces some great shots with a lever type profile time and time again. So far, despite the initial technical issues, am more than happy with the coffee the L1 is producing. Just resisting the lure of 3 bar preinfusion on the LR!
  20. For sale is a 2003 Olympia Cremina. It has had three owners from new: Reiss Gunson when he was distributor for Olympia in the UK (pre-Londinium), me, wintoid of this forum, and then me again. It has been a working machine so is not cosmetically perfect e.g. the Cremina lettering on the frontplate has worn, the graphite grey of the casing has some variation in colour, there is some superficial surface scratching to the chrome on the top plate and to the edge of the casing where it meets the top plate. But that does not detract at all from its performance. If you know about Creminas you know that they last a lifetime - if you don't check out the multitude of posts on Home Barista. I bought this back off wintoid having owned it previously, but my routine just doesn't justify keeping it as I'm not based in one place and most days just have a quick cup first thing before I leave for work. The Cremina will certainly do that - it only takes around 10 mins to come to temperature and you can flush or circulate boiler water to preheat the group - but I just don't like owning kit that I don't use properly. It's a stunning piece of engineering and a real pleasure to use - having had a few levers, none has come close to the precision in lever action that really makes you feel as though you're an integral part of the shot. A couple of things to point out: 1) the boiler cap is Orphan Espresso (the original picked up a crack somewhere along the way) and this version doesn't have a vac breaker so you do have to bleed false pressure which to me has been no big deal. You can get OEM boiler caps from Cerini. 2) The pressure stat has a wider band than it used to which probably means it could do with replacing. I bought a replacement Mater but haven't got round to installing it as it hasn't bothered me. I replaced the p'stat years ago on this machine and IIRC it's a quick and easy job. 3) I replaced the piston seals a couple of months back with OEM parts from Cerini and the piston is working smoothly with a tight seal. Bits and pieces: 4x baskets (1x double original, 1x single original, 2x double Elektra for updosing) Original funnel for filling the boiler Original knock box 1x original 4 hole steam tip, 2x single hole steam tips Reg Barber tamper - custom fit from Londinium OE dosing funnel 2x milk jugs (if you want them) Portafilter stand (from HG-One I believe) Ball-end hex key for group head Lever pin lube I'm asking £1,000 (no offers) which I think is something of a bargain. The only reason I'm setting the price so low is that wintoid let it go to me for that so it only seems fair to pass it on for the same amount. It's more important to me that it goes to a good home and a new owner who will really appreciate it. Currently the machine is in Margate which is where I am at weekends, but I can bring it up to London for weekday evening viewing/collection. You may just need to wait for the transit, although I go back and forth most weekends. At this point I'd rather not ship. Any questions please do ask.
  21. Background: Having noticed slight, then increasingly prominent water leak from the top of the group I decided to replace the piston seals. Once I removed the piston and saw what colour it was I thought ok, I'll clean and do all the seals on the group. Then I thought hmmm maybe I ought to do the seals in the steam valve too....and a new steam arm wouldn't hurt either... so to cut a long story short, I've ended up striping this machine right back to the frame and built it back up over the last couple of months. Once it was all back together and I first switched it on there was a leak from the inside at the back of the steam valve. I replaced the recommended 'upgrade' plastic washer with a brass crush washer and that solved it straight away although there was quite a bit of water in the machine. Stripped down the power switch, dried off, cleaned and put back together then moped up remaining water and made a very acceptable espresso. Next morning I switched the machine on, waited for it to warm up then almost finished pulling a shot when there was a bang and a blue flash (the power light remained on). Obviously I switched off and after testing the components with a metre it looks like the 'ready light' bulb and Pressurestat no longer work. I have ordered these parts but don't want a repeat - my guess is the water shorted out the light and took the Pstat with it. I followed the 'Olympia Cremina Electical Troubleshooting Guide' on the Orphanespresso site which was useful although I'm not getting expected readings from the element. Any advice from someone who actually understands electrics would be good. Al
  22. I have just received a Savenilli lever machine from eBay . I believe this is a Zacconi baby . I just could not resist it .. I have checked it over and it heats up and no leaks apparent. I have taken the piston out and it needs replacing along with the seals .. Anyone know of a good source for spare parts for this machine please ?
  23. When doing some research found this guy in Oz doing custom and restorations of vintage levers. Some very very interesting projects, thought it may interest some on here... http://coffeemachinist.com.au/
  24. I have the R set to come on each morning at 06:30 but it's cold more mornings than not because it keeps alarming in spite of the tank being nowhere near empty. The slightest movement rectifies it. I've made sure the tank is tight and properly seated. I'm using Ashbeck at the moment, I know Reiss says that water which is too soft may cause issues but I don't know if Ashbeck is too soft? That said, why design a machine that almost relies on hard water while saying hard water will damage it? Seems like a seriously rubbish design if I'm honest, not what you'd expect of a £2400 machine.
  25. I’ve studied this machine for some time before pulling the trigger recently and watched many videos. Things got off to a great start but this morning I struggled to get enough water through the group. The pump seems to be operating normally and the preinfusion seems normal. After releasing the lever, the flow slows very quickly and I can barely get a 30g shot. I’m not choking it, the grind is good. Any suggestions? Thanks.
