  1. So, I'm flying to Karachi, Pakistan tomorrow to sort out 8 Marzocco linea 2 groups - Some quite new (PID), some working "ok", some not. One ransacked for spares (so a rebuild), and one or two to convert to PID. Should be fun...and an interesting challenge! I'm going to try to post updates on twitter: @spressotech Wish me luck! All that to do in 5 days.....
  2. Popping my posting cherry after lurking on here for some time. So I bought a second hand 2 group Rancilio Classe 10 and it is truly an amazing machine, but my problem is I can't figure out how to program the presets. The machine work's like a dream manually and I have been using it like this for a while. I've downloaded all the relevant manuals, I've even been a little cheeky and contacted Rancilios UK agent but still after hours of time and kilos of coffee I can't get the buttons to program. Although this is not effecting the great shots it pulls it is niggling me. Cheers.
  3. Hi, I wonder if there is a Fracino Engineer anywhere near Nottingham? I have a few problems which are beyond my level of understanding, so it's time to call in the professionals! Whilst I know that Fracino are based in Birmingham, which isn't a million miles away, I thought I'd see if there was anyone more local. Thank you in advance for your help.
  4. Hi all. I am a newbie to the forum so please go easy. I am building a mobile coffeee van and have purchased a used (fairly old) CMA Astoria AL2 lever machine which runs on LPG and Elec. I was wondering if anyone could offer any advice on finding an engineer (ideally based in the north of England) who has the skills to service the machine. Clearly being a lever machine, AND dual fuel puts it in a rare space in terms of finding a suitable engineer and I have heard that most engineers won't touch them because they are no longer used to working on them and/or dont have correct tools to work
  5. I've just left my full-time job (as founding engineer/machine guru) working for a fairly major London and national coffee and machine supply company to go back to being self employed, which was where I started nearly 20 years ago! For the last 12 years I've been working on espresso machines (you name it, I've probably fixed it!) after helping to set up a now well respected service department. The real base of my skills are in La Marzocco machines, and I've also worked extensively on Spaziale, San Marco and Conti gear, Mazzer grinders, Lever machines (love them!), and Giotto Rockets amongst
  6. I am on the verge of booking in my 2group contempo for a full strip down service with the dealer, whilst I have had good service from them in the past the logistics are a bit of a pain in the butt. would you be able to recommend an engineer local to Lincoln who could give my machine the full works? Thanks bob
  7. Hi, Could anyone give me any recommendations for good Fracino engineers in the London area? I'm based in East London and have a commercial setup (Contempo dual fuel semi-automatic machine in a Piaggio Ape). Thanks, Caroline Perky Coffee http://perkycoffee.co.uk

  9. Hi.. I have a kitchen aid espresso maker ( dual boilers for coffee and steam) It must be nearly 8 yrs old and has just recently stopped passing water through the main boiler.. Everything else seems to be working. The milk steamer side works perfectly.. Both boilers get hot and it seems to be making all the right noises, but just no water coming through the coffee making side. Does anyone one with any experience of these have any ideas as to what could be wrong or any troubleshooting ideas. ( I have cleaned all easily assesible parts and tried to run descalent through) i also called kitch
  10. Hi All, I'm currently seeking a position within the coffee industry. I am a competent engineer as well as an accomplished barista trainier having trained such names as 2 michilin starred Gidlieigh Park & Tanners Restaurant as well as being an authourised Union Hand Roasted Barista trainer!
