  1. As above. A couple of days ago my wife was filling the Heavenly and splashed a bit of water on top. Since then, it trips our electric when turned on. We've left it next to a radiator for 2 days in case it is damp inside, but to no effect. Not got much confidence to take it apart. Any ideas?
  2. Anyone know the electric running cost of their machines? If so post the details:
  3. Hi. My piccino is tripping the electric and I wondered if anybody would have an idea why. I went as far changing the fuse but that's my electrical expertise exhausted :-) Help appreciated, I need some espresso!
  4. Hi All, I'm after some advice. I work in a large shop in a tourist town that sells vintage/retro/industrial furniture. We have a cafe that originally sold coffee/tea and cake and had one member of staff. Then after many people asking if we sold lunches we jumped in - invested in a small kitchen area and now sell vegetarian lunches and soups. Our problem is that an oven is on all day for the lunches to be warmed, the heating needs to be on in the shop (during colder months) so that customers can sit without wearing coats AND we require 2 members of staff so with staffing and electric bill the coffee shop is barely breaking a profit. Do any of you have suggestions for the best way forward? Many thanks Jo
  5. Hello. Simple question. What do you think will be a better option to buy a grinder for making a good espresso? Which one can be better in grinding consistency, settings, simply give better overall result? 1, Buy manual approx. 50€ grinder like Porlex or Hario Skerton 2, Or buy entry level electric grinder for around 150€ like Graef CM800 which option do you recommend and why? Thank you very much.
  6. Here's what happened. On Thursday my wife decided to treat the Heavenly to a good polish. We have the Heavenly on a timer so that it's nice an hot when we get up. On Friday morning, I go to the fridge and see the light is out. I then realise there's no power to other sockets in the kitchen, so go and flick the fuse switch and everything comes back on. Including the low water alarm on the heavenly. I then see that there's a pool of water on the counter top where the heavenly stands. I then notice that the switch you press to make a cup is in the "on" position. My wife says she thinks she must have pressed it by accident when polishing. Anyway, I turn that off, fill up with water and wait for the machine to get up to temperature/pressure. My wife then froths some milk for her cappuccino. I then grind some coffee, put the portafilter in the group-head as normal and turn the switch on. Nothing. Zilch. rien. We are then away for most of the weekend. So the boiler etc is all working fine. I know very little but I assume there is a pump that actually pumps the water to the group head. Presumably what has happened at 6.30 when the timer turned the machine on, given the switch that would normally be off was on, at some stage the pump started to pump water to the group-head to the point where the tank was empty (hence the alarm when the power came back on). And at some stage something blew to the extent that it tripped the mains fuse. So the questions are, any idea what this is likely to be? Given that I am mechanically and electrically inept, am I likely to be able to fix it? Does anyone know any firm etc ion North or North West London or hertfordshire who repairs Fracinos?
  7. I’m looking to sell my Gene Café CBR 1200 1kg coffee Roaster. Purchased from Bella Barista about three years ago with the intention of setting up a micro coffee roasting business. However, due to a change in personal circumstances, the business never even got started. The roaster has had very little use, its only had about 15kg of beans put through it. It has been well maintained and really is as good as new, with no scratches or damage. I’m looking for a fair price for what is a very good piece of equipment. Will accept offers. It comes with its original box, instruction manuals (manufacturers and Bella Barista) and everything else it was originally supplied with (roaster, hoses, exhaust pipe, metal hook tool, etc.). I also include the adapter so it can plug into mains electricity. Everything needed to plug it in and start roasting! I would be prepared to deliver the roaster within a 25-mile radius of Oxford, or the it can be collected. If you would prefer arrange collection by courier, then that is at the buyer’s risk. This is an excellent roaster and I’m sorry to be parting with it. If you have any questions, please do get in touch. All the best! Jon
  8. Hello and good evening to everyone. I'm Gaz and from east Manchester. New to the world of making fresh and a decent cup of coffee! I have yet to get all of the equipment I need so here I am to get ideas so I hopefully won't make too many n00bie errors. Although that is how we learn. I know I need a Burr as opposed to get an electric grinder. Although that is as far as my knowledge goes. I am looking to produce coffee from one of the Starbucks /Costa style machines (but obviously not as big! Lol). I don't want to buy a stupidly expensive one to start of with but don't want to buy a dirt cheap one that will break on me 3 months down the line. Same goes for a Burr. I'll be making coffee mainly in quantities of 2 cups but occasionally more. Any pointers to places in the forum would be great but I am going to be browsing around so will hopefully pick stuff up as I go along. Mainly after knowledge from you experienced peeps out there! Cheers all! Gaz
  9. I'm looking for a timed coffee machine to sit by my bedside that will make 1-2 cups of coffee at a set time. My parents used to have one a long time ago that did just that. It had a light, a clock and an alarm. They woke up to a ready made cup without getting out of bed:D The coffee only needs to be instant (I'm actually not a big coffee drinker). Any ideas greatly appreciated. (Preferably a really basic / quiet / easy to maintain machine.)
  10. At the moment I use a hand grinder. I generally make one mug (two coffee cups) each time. For health reasons I would like to buy a small electric grinder, coffee specific of course I don't want a thing with blades but a proper grinder reasonably priced. Any suggestions? Thanks
