  1. SOLD PENDING PAYMENT I'm selling my R60v espresso machine as I'm finally getting round to opening my own coffee shop, so have no use for a home machine anymore. It is finished in the black option, serial number 15/57. I believe they retail for just under £3000 new. I am the second owner of this machine and it was supplied by Bella Barista In January 2016. The warranty expired on the 05/01/2018 - so still a little bit of time left. It includes the bits from new you would expect including PID, spare Portafilter, Rocket tamper and plumb in kit. No box. The machine has onl
  2. Hello guys, I am struggling to choose a present for my close friend and was hoping you can give me a hand. Some inputs: - doesn't need steamer (only drinks black coffee) - uses machine rather infrequently (maybe once a week) - ease of use is rather important (this includes cleaning) - size is important (the smaller the better) - looks is kind of important, lots of cheap plastic slightly turns me off (mostly the fact that it is fidly and doesn't feel like it can last for a few years) - looking to spend up to 400 GBP I was initially thinking about bean to cup machines
  3. For sale is my Sage Barista express. less than a year old, complete with all accessories including portafilter, single and double baskets, cleaning tools, Sage Razor, tamper, milk jug and original box. Excellent condition as shown in pics. Collection from Middlesbrough area. £350
  4. Hi all, im selling my beloved Gaggia classic espresso machinee with a few extras. I have owned this for about a year, and I bought it second hand from a guy who had owned it for 2 years - it is definitely still the model that was made in Italy. This machine has seen a moderate to low usage, and it has always been descaled and backflushed regularly. I have really loved using this machine and have always looked after it well, I'm absolutely gutted to be getting rid of it, but I think it's time for an upgrade. I have also done the Silvia steam wand upgrade as can be seen. I've also on
  5. I'm quite new to posting to this forum but i have read quite a bit. My (very average) Delonghi Icona packed up so i looked into getting a Gaggia Classic as a step up but read a lot about how the older Italian models were better quality machines. I ended up getting a 1998 model off someone on eBay for £60 which she said had been stored away in a box for a long time but is in good condition and when tested worked fine. Does anyone have any advice on what I will need to look out for do? Is there a steam wand upgrade I should be getting? Or am I just a total idiot for buying a ne
  6. Hello, For a sale Expobar Brewtus IV (tank/vibra)verison. Bought in August 2015 in original packing and with everything that came with it: - portafilter - filter basket (single and double) - blind filter. It is 230V/240V version with schuko plug (germany, italy, austria, swiss etc). For UK it is just need a 3pin uk adapter. Machine was regularly maintained and always used with water softener. If you have any additional questions let me know and i am able to send any additional pictures. Joystick are sold. I did apply the original. I'm ready to sell it fo
  7. 2008 Gaggia Classic with: Rancillo Silvia steam wand - gives much better steaming capability than original. Double portafilter with new basket Good quality tamper Coffee scoop Machine has been well looked after - descaled regularly with Puly descaling powder. It has a new shower screen, new shower screen holder (upgraded to brass version) and new group seal / gasket. They were all fitted a couple of weeks ago. It's in very good condition - as you can see from photo - the markings on the switches have worn slightly. Iberital Mc2 - ideal grinder to partner the Classic. G
  8. Recently purchased a Krups Calvi Espresso machine during the Black Friday promotion (120 pounds), it has some interesting features for a budget machine like auto-purge and 3s low-pressure preinfusion. Although it can make some really decent shots, I found the steam wand to be a bit too underpowered my liking (it's even weaker than my previous 3-year-old Delonghi Eco310 without the Panarello attachment). It struggles to even froth (not to mention heat up) a small volume of milk (120-150ml) before the 75s auto shut off feature kicks in. Unfortunately, the steam wand issue is a deal brea
  9. Hi All, Have recently agreed a couple sales for machines off the forum, one of which is to replace the machine currently at work. This is that machine. Its a Sage DTP, in good condition, currently fed bottled Ashbeck, previously Volvic. Cleaned regularly after use, and backflushed regularly (using the disc and occasionally tablets). It has no warranty, but has caused me no issues and has never had a fault. Its had an easy life, making no more than 5 doubles a week for the last 18 months while at work, previous to that it would've made approximately 10 a week. Its got some gener
  10. For sale is my Quick Mill Anita. Comes with double shot portafilter (no single unfortunately). Used with bottled water only, in great condition apart from the front right leg is a little bent due to transportation. Really only drink filter these days and I'm moving house so I guess we could use the funds for something a little more appropriate... Like a new bed... or a chair... Sigh. Has been a great machine - really good at bouncing back after multiple drinks, lots of headroom with the steam and can pull shots whilst steaming without issue. Looking at collection only fr
  11. Hello all, I have a Londinium L1 and Eureka Mythos with the anti-clump mod, I've had this combo for something like 4-5 years. It's served me well but I want to replace the grinder and think I might also benefit from replacing the L1 as well. I'm currently thinking a Vesuvius (or perhaps the R 60V) and something like a Compak E10, ideally a grinder that works well with single doses as I don't make a lot of coffees, I've fancied a conical grinder for a while now hence why I'm considering the E10. I have the L1 plumbed in so I do enjoy the silence and ease of operation/maintenance
  12. 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
  13. We at Horsham Coffee Roaster are selling our 3 year old Linea Mini. Mainly been used for training once every one to two weeks but now isn't needed as we've replaced it with a 2 group Strada. It's in good mechanical condition with just a few paint chips that would be less noticeable with some black touch up paint. Selling for £2595 inc VAT which is just over £1000 less than the RRP price. Collection from our roastery in West Sussex and I'll include some free coffee too. Here are some pictures:
  14. Posted previously without any traction. I need these to go to a new home as I'm moving house at the end of the month. New thread due to splitting sale and reducing prices slightly. Mods feel free to delete the old thread. - - - Both machines are forum purchases and have served me very well. Collection from Portishead, Bristol ONLY but I will consider travelling within reason. ------------------ Photo Album: https://imgur.com/a/UISZoWa ------------------ 1) Gaggia Classic [Dec 2012] - £125 NEW upper boiler NEW steam valve (original suppl
  15. Hi, I have a brand new ECM Synchronika espresso machine for sale, ready for collection (or can be personally delivered) in the Edinburgh area. I also frequently travel to Yorkshire so a drop off en-route can be arranged! My preference would be to not deliver due to potential damage during transit, but I still have the original packaging including protection which is double boxed, so this is possible if necessary. The machine is in as new condition and has been used for one day having pulled approx. 30 shots of espresso. Bought on 5th November (boxed since) and comes with a 2 year tra
  16. I am addicted to a latte from a cafe in my city. I am using their beans (buying beans directly from them) to make lattes at home with my Gaggia Classic + Compaq K3 setup and although it tastes wonderful, it is still so different than what they produce. Significantly different and no matter what I do, I cannot replicate their tasty coffee! The cafe uses a VA388 Black Eagle and a Nuova Simonelli Mythos One. My goal is to create a coffee/latte which tastes exactly the same (or gets as close as possible) and I was hoping if you could point me to the right direction. What equipment do I need t
  17. Hi All, New here and looking into purchasing a first "real" espresso machine (i already have a grinder), Mostly drinking Americano's, occasional Espresso generally around 2 - 3 drinks a day so not a huge demand (currently using a Wacaco Nanopresso). I started off looking at the Gaggia Classic and Rancilio Silvia E models (either can be picked up for ~£400), though the further I researched more and more features became apparent of what I might prefer / find useful in a machine to ensure I wouldnt be looking to upgrade in the foreseeable future such as PID, 58mm Portafilter, E61 Group
  18. This is the updated version of the Gradisca, it is a 2008 and can be run on a 13A Plug. The RE-styled version has updated touch pads, raised group heads for large takeaway cups. It looks great and is a workhorse of a coffee machine. These things were built to last and this machine is in great cosmetic and working order. It has been given a full de-scale service, tested and can be demonstrated working. Please view the ebay listing via this link: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/173682439268?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 It includes a double and single por
  19. Gaggia Classic with Rancilio steam wand and OPV set to 9 bar Bought a couple of years ago on this forum from the chap who refurbishes them. I've since replaced the dispersion plate with a brass one and added an IMS shower screen. Backflushed after every shot and backflushed with pulycaff every other week. Regularly descaled although I'm not sure soft Yorskhire water warrants it. Comes with the following Original double portafilter Fairly new bottomless portafilter Single and double baskets Shot glasses New replacement gasket, which I haven't need to fit yet Plastic
  20. For sale a Vesuvius espresso machine I bought here two years ago. Manufacture date: 07.2014. Machine has served me well and was used daily (2-4 shots a day). I decided to sell, because I need some cash, and me and my wife are happy with switching to filter only. The machine is soon going to be sent for a full service to BellaBarista. The machine will be packed and delivered (insured) to Bella by a professional company (https://www.mbe.co.uk/newcastle) in their own van. I never had a single problem with the machine, however when I examined it while taking pictures for a sales thread,

  22. Hi, I am looking to replace my Sage barista machine to a more high end one. Budget of about £1200. Something like a Rocket or al a spaziale. That kind of level. Purely for home use, so not needing anything big. One group will do. Anyone have any views please, or recommendations? Thanks.
  23. Hi all, I have had my trusty rocket giotto since 2012, taken great care of it with Volvic water from the beginning (and regular descaling) to then a plumbed in set-up (Britta filter). Back then it was one of the nicest HX machine with a smooth rotary pump. Recently changed the E61 rubber seal, all in perfect working order All the gears, including extra naked portafilter and couple baskets however I am missing the original box (I have the papers though) https://www.seattlecoffeegear.com/blog/2016/10/24/rocket-espresso-evoluzione/ Pick-up in Tooting, London only [sO
