  1. Is this dependent on having the warranty card or can you claim via reciept? I think I may have lost the card...and I can't drink coffee anymore / find good LSOL decaf so I am going to sell my gear. Thanks
  2. I have joined this party, my E5 is due tomorrow. Have wanted an OD machine for a while and BB could not speak highly enough of the machine. Give my height restrictions and want for an upgrade the trusty Mignon is off to a new home ( I hope ) or will become the Decaf grinder and the mis adventure with the Mazzer will be forgotten! Cant wait, mis remember to read the instructions first before I plough in like the usually impatient bloke ( read Child ) that I am. Will update further...
  3. bella barista stock Sage anymore? I have seen in some of their review videos they clearly used to.
  4. Finally went with the ECM Mechanika Profi IV and the Rocket Fausto. Love it. What a nice upgrade from the super automatic I had before. The shots are coming out great but struggling mightily to get the right foam for latte art. Thanks to all on the forum for advice and personal experiences. And as many others have experienced, Bella Barista was terrific to work with.
  5. I'm looking to upgrade sometime soon & thought this looked like an interesting machine but on another thread someone implied it's very overpriced as it's a vibe pump machine. I know you can't plumb vibe pumps but are there other issues with them? And what are peoples thoughts generally on the machine & it's pricing? Link below, thanks in advance https://www.bellabarista.co.uk/profitec-600-espresso-machine.html
  6. Hi all. I've recently decided to take the plunge and upgrade my coffee experience. I've owned a pod machine, and then experimented with a bean to cup machine for a few years but have decided to take more interest and control. I've been doing my homework by lurking on forums such as this one. However the first proper step is a barista training course in July so I at least know a bit more about what I should be doing when I'm in control of more of the process. I also have the option to purchase a new espresso machine on the same day if I like the results. They apparently have the machine I
  7. Well, for the next 17 hours anyway... I decided to upgrade and reluctantly parted with my Alex Duetto - a really lovely machine that has delivered hundreds of enjoyable coffees over the past 4 years. After careful consideration and some hands-on time recently I have opted for the R60V - from Bella Barista. The machines were out of stock for a wee while but landed this week. It has been bench tested and is now somewhere between Wellingborough and London. The purchase via the new Bella Barista website was also smooth. I can't wait to get it set up and start dialing in
  8. Bella Barista will be opening on two Saturdays in the run up to Christmas 2017. Saturday 25th November 9am – 2pm and Saturday 9th December 9am – 2pm Details here
  9. Hello everyone I purchased this CBR-1200 roaster from Bella Barista 2 years ago but due to moving house and now renovating, I have rarely had the opportunity to use it. Hence the sale. I have perhaps roasted 25kg on it so it is ​almost like new. I am looking for £2550 for it (£3695 new). Depending on distance I can either deliver or meet halfway. I am in Holt, north Norfolk. Any questions please ask.
  10. I might do without the machine for a bit and just use v60 with a coarse grind, it depends how I do on budget. If you had to buy new and needed everything except kettle, v60, and coffee, what would you get instead?
  11. Hi Folks, Any recommendations for online suppliers of coffee machines/grinders etc?? Thanks
  12. First pour after 2 weeks of having no machine on my bench. I popped into Bella Barista to collect my machine after it's service yesterday. My Duetto is 3 1/2 years old, gets well used and abused but still is amazing to pull shots on. It needed a few seals replacing (which is normal for its age and use) and although I'm tempted to get a new machine I will wait until I move house as I am reluctant to part with this one... The team are all buzzing - it's getting close to Christmas and they are pulling great shots of Gaslight on their demo machines. It was my first visi
  13. I am selling my 50th birthday present! This is an ECM Mechanika III Profi bought from Bella Barista in 2009. It has given me years of good service, and is in good working condition. I have attached some pictures of the machine, and also some showing scuffs on the nuts where I have undone them to replace the gaskets over the years. I also have Eric’s thermometer (included) which is shown in the pictures but not attached at the moment. It was serviced by BB a couple of years ago, and I have just replaced the cam lever gaskets, and the brew head gasket. I still have the BB recei
  14. After some sound advice from forum members and from Marko at Bella Barista, I picked up what I hope will be my last big coffee purchase yesterday. Paired with the EK I picked up from @EricC a few weeks ago, I'm hoping this combo will last me a very long time. Technically it's not quite my first setup, but it's the first "proper" espresso setup I've owned, which definitely qualifies as jumping in at the deep end I think. The whole buying experience from BB was great, Marko threw in a whole bunch of extras above and beyond the bundle they already offer with new machines, including a k
  15. Hi I've just found the Forum and joined. I've bought my first serious espresso machine just over a year ago from Bella Barista, a Quickmill Silvano. I also have a Eureka Mignon mill and have been very pleased with both. In the last couple of weeks I've bought a dual boiler machine and am now busy practising with it. As well as espresso we also use an Espro French Press and an Aeropress. The Aeropress is mainly used by my wife. Still searching for the perfect cup!!!
  16. I think this is going to be my next purchase. I have a Gaggia Classic, which i've had for a couple of years now (since being a member of this board). I'm thinking that the Evo would be a good upgrade which I dont think I'd need to change again for a long time. I like americanos with a drop of single cream, 2-3 cups per day. Espressos are rare now. People from bella-barista have given me some good advice as I thought I needed a twin tank, but a HX is more my cup of tea/coffee.
  17. Hi all, I have been lurking for around 6 months and joined a couple of months ago so thought I should say hello. I have resisted asking a series of questions whilst buying my kit, learning how to use it and making good coffee. I have to say I have found this forum an invaluable resource throughout, and have found answers to all of my questions here so thank you all for your help! After a lot of research, I have ventured into entry level machines after never having owned/ used one, and bought a Silvia v4 and a Eureka Mignon grinder. Shout out to Bella Barista - very glad I chos
  18. Hi All Been lurking for over 6 months and found all the conversations and advise to others excellent. Having got sick of Starbucks and then inconsistent shots from the coffee houses I decided to do it myself! We have no local decent coffee shops! So on Wednesday I took myself off to Bella Barista, 105 miles from home and 2h 30 minutes later, I'm greeted my Claudette and the information starts to flow. Following great reviews and recommendations here I was looking at the Expobar Dual Boiler and the Eureka Zenith 65e. I was going to opt for a cheaper setup but saw/read the messing

    It landed this morning. None of the fuss or drama you would expect in unpacking it. All I had to do was screw the lever in and away we go. Now, I have been without a lever for 2 months so my mind has become infected with pump charachteristics! The machine had been bench tested so I just filled the resevoir and away we went. The pump taking the water into the boiler is extremely quiet. I have forgotten what they used but it is not silent but very gentle. My L1 used to rattle when it drew water through! I set the machine up, vented the steam wand and did the same with the water arm, which is a

    Bella barista

    Hey guys, what's the verdict on these guys. Ive only ever ever drank supermarket coffee etc and want to step it up a bit. I like the look of Bella barista as they have lots of variety and are reasonably priced. Are they good beans? Regards, James
  21. Here is a once in a life time opportunity to get your hands on a prototype machine, the very first edition of the quickmill veloce lever machine. Sporting the same lever group as the Kees idrocompresso and the Londinium l1, this makes a great shot of coffee, it is PID controlled so easy to adjust the pressure on in the boiler and is temperature stable due to a thermosyphon. Some of you will have read my thoughts on this machine in another thread and know that this will lead to some subtle modifications to this prototype. It has only had around 50 shots pulled through it while evaluating it so
  22. Lets get the irritants out of the way. Probably because I 'm the first with the Machine & it was pushed through for me there is no User Guide/Manual. Only thing available apart from Bella Barista's Closer Look is a rather scrappy set of explanatory instructions in irregular English. A 'cheat sheet' type of explanation at least to get you installed would be invaluable. I was told it had six adjustable feet, it came with four. I was just about to notify BB of the shortage when Davec told me there had been a change in the spec. With the Machine came a beautiful thick ply fi
  23. I have heard rumblings from within the bowels of Bella Barista that they will shortly have a new lever machine for sale. It will be unique to them and just waiting for the final specifications to be made available. Might have some photos and info tomorrow.
  24. Anyone tried this? Seems like pretty good value. I didn't know they also sold beans....
