  1. I thought it worth starting a thread for the production machine as I think any more posts on the old beta thread is not hugely helpful. I am trying to complete the review and update the beta user guide to a final version as quickly as possible. I will try in the review to list many of the changed areas...or as many as is relevant and that I can remember. I think it's great that Bella Barista are carrying the machine and it seems to be proving popular already even though they were not sure about it's looks. Personally i think it's nice not to have the usual rectangular steel box. Here is t
  2. I have had my new Minima for around 3 weeks now. For context, prior to buying a Minima, I have owned: Gaggia Classic Bezzera Mitica Top Rocket Giotto Evolution ECM Mechanika Profi NS Oscar II Sage Dual Boiler Sage Oracle As you can see, I started out with HX machines and often spent the extra on things like build and a Rotary pump. The Oscar was me wanting to see what a lower budget would get, and the Sage machines were my first foray into Dual boiler setups. I really liked the Sage machines for the quick startup times and ease of use, but I always felt that I w
  3. Looking for help here. Could be that I am doing something wrong, but my steam boiler has started spitting lots of water from the top centre brass valve on heat up. This is causing the machine to short out and tripping my circuit breaker. If I restart the machine and continue it does heat up and I can steam but then it is intermittent and spluttery and steam/water is escaping from the ball joint of the steam wand and spraying around. Been happening for a few days and I thought maybe some air had got pulled in but a couple of water tanks through and it's not getting any better. A
  4. HI after company moving in the new wharehouse we have found some part of the Vesuvius frame damaged due of transport up and down, the damages consist in small scratches basically not noticiable but there are, we can build around 18 machines, i mean that the machine are not build yet but for how will order we will build a brand new machine with everything included. The price for each machine is 1900 GBP shipping and parts warranty included. Feel free to ask for any additional information. Ciao Paolo
  5. Other than the hilarity of searching for “Vesuvius Exploded View” if you forget to put espresso in the search. I have not had much luck finding something like this. If anyone happens to know where to find one I am curious about some of the details and I’m crazy enough to want to mess with the electronics inside. Thus, also a circuit diagram would be cool, granted if I got one I could just trace it out. I really like the Fluid-o-Tech's integrated controller with a 0-5V control link, as a simple way to get involved with a normally very complicated system for electronics. I’ve also not
  6. Hi all, I’m relatively new to this game, but have owned a Gaggia Classic in the past, and have just done the barista training with the wonderful Tracy at Pollards in Sheffield, and now I’m looking to get my first ‘proper’ machine. I’ve pretty much settled on either the Sage Dual Boiler or the ACS Minima, but keep going backwards and forwards between them. The Minima is an E61 machine, much better looking (although subjective I know), powerful steam delivery, probably longer lasting. The Sage has a lot more functionality and room for experimentation, although th
  7. I have 3 machines for sale because a small retail customer cancelled the order £2150 New Vesuvius, Stainless steel outside PTFE standard pipes inside...2 machines £2400 New Vesuvius, Stainless Steel, stainless pipework inside....1 machine I can add an E61 group pressure gauge to any machine for an extra 16 gbp. Subsidised delivery cost is £20 (this is for the UK normal postal addresses) for other destinations especially outside Europe, there may be an extra charge, or if you are in one of those special places where you know postage is ver
  8. This post is on behalf of ACS. I was going to use the for sale thread, but I realise this thread will do. The development costs for the Minima have been significant and Beta machines are priced purely to recover a small portion of these costs. Retail prices will be significantly higher, so this is a one time shot. There are only 10 machines available. The cost of a Beta unit will be £849 plus £20 contribution for airfreight to you (this may increase if your location has higher costs than normal UK locations). These costs all include VAT and are not negotiable. The warranty will be 2 yea
