  1. Fully working with original box and spare set of burrs. Black GLOSS colour. Great grinder and reluctantly selling as I seem to be using less and less - having a declutter! £200 but fair and reasonable offers considered. I 'd like to think like minded people won't take the mickey! Collection from Rugby (CV21) or Market Harborough (LE16). Happy to meet in localities / next to M1 or M6 if someone is passing. Can arrange delivery via courier for £10. Details of the grinder can be found here but the one I am selling is GLOSS finish not MATT (saves me tying!): http://www.myespresso.co.uk/product/eureka-mignon-mk2-on-demand-grinder-with-timer-gloss-black-free-1kg-beans/
  2. Newbie looking for advice. After my first bean to cup Delonghi ECAM I moved to the Sage Barista Express about a year ago. I like the ease of use but as make a lot of flat white/latte's, find the steam wand to take a long time to heat the milk, taking too long to make a batch when friends over etc. Big birthday coming up so have decided to upgrade again. New kitchen built so needed something to go with new design so have opted for the Simonelli Musica (yes with lights!). I tested recently and love the design and power. So now looking for a grinder to compliment the new machine. I've done a fair amount of research and think I have narrowed down to a choice of the Eureka Mignon, the Malhkonig Vario or the Baratza Sette 270. I like the automated features on the Vario and the Sette but both have mixed reviews on Espresso grind for the Vario and reliability on the Sette. The Mignon looks a bit more industrial without the ease but potentially better espresso grind. I know the Mazzer Mini will be recommended but don't really want to go second hand and really only for up to 5 uses a day. Budget up to around £400. Any advice very welcome! thank you
  3. (More photos in that photobucket album, hopefully visible if you click through.) Hi all, Due to downgraditis (discussed in another thread) I’m selling an old modded Gaggia Classic and a much more recent (European) Eureka Mignon, and basically all the other bits you need to get started except for the cheap eBay scales. (I’m keeping my scales, which are both a bit too soggy and too useful to let go.) About the Classic: 2004 Bought refurbished and already modded from MartinB back in June 2015 ( http://coffeeforums.co.uk/showthread.php?24300-Sold-Gaggia-Classic-Boxed-New-seals-descaled-OPV-mod-Rancilio-wand ); Has a Rancilio wand and is set at 10 static bar; Has 2 bolts “underneath” by the group-head where the spot-welds had gone; Condition is used but not abused – it’s a 12-year-old machine now. The bad stuff: Steam knob is scratched as per MartinB’s previous pics; the legends on the switches are part-worn; the grid is well used and there are surface scratches on the cup-warmer top and also on the plastic portafilter handle. There are also some minor rust markings on the steam wand side of the machine. I’ve basically tried to capture all the bad stuff in the pics so you won’t be disappointed. I’ll never make a great salesman. Used for about year with hard tap water, descaled a couple of times, frequently back-flushed with water and Dusty (Puly) Caff; I replaced the steam valve near the end of my year. (This was to try to stop a bit of dripping from the wand after use, though I think I only proved that the original was fine and it’s normal Classic behaviour. I suspect the dripping was simply water left in the wand bubbling out – I mostly drink long coffees so used the wand more for water than steam.); Comes in its original box (that was once temporarily used for holding a kettle and a toaster if you believe the writing on the top). About the Mignon: Gloss black mk2 with the timer (and the smaller hopper of two available, if I recall); Ordered new by me from Elektros.it in June 2015 (and I think I posted about it in threads here at the time), so it has a European Schuko plug on it. I’m including the (earthed) adapter in the sale, of course. Very good condition. There seems to be a tiny little dot of a chip in the black paint on the front-left leg that I didn’t actually noticed until I gave the thing a recent wipe-over – I can only guess it must have had a single coffee-ground covering it. I’ve found there are a couple of small part-cracks hidden inside the stem of the hopper where it slots into the grinder - something to do with tightening the securing screw or removing the hopper I guess, though I don’t remember having been violent. I ground my coffee into a plastic pot rather than a portafilter so I haven’t scratched up any of the metal surfaces and they’re basically about as good as they were when they were new. Was used for about 12 months and my coffee order history suggests it’s had about 20kg through it. Comes in its original box (but don’t get excited - it’s just a brown cardboard one with Eureka printed on it). About the “necessaries”: Comes also with a hardly-used unpressurised single basket, a well-used unpressurised double, a blind basket for back-flushing, a scruffy nylon group-head brush and… A nice black plastic knock box (knock bin, really); A hefty tamper, slightly curved base, slightly smaller diameter than the baskets. (It was billed as a 58mm so I guess it’s really a 57-point-something – don’t have anything to measure it that accurately); Half of a large tub of Dusty (Puly) Caff. I think that's covered everything. Hopefully this set will suit someone with more refined tastebuds than mine. £280 on collection from the Camberley / Bracknell area. I’m not currently considering posting. Cheers, Mike.
  4. I'm selling my gloss black Mignon Mk II that I have had for 2 years. Purchased originally from Bella Barista in Oct 2016 it still has just over 1 year of warranty. It has seen very light use at home due to my espresso set up being second to filter, around 40kg on the current burrs. I will include a brand new set of spare burrs. Selling due to all my espresso equipment being under used. Selling for £180. Pick up from Norwich or can deliver for £10
  5. I have been using my >2015 Gaggia Classic twice daily for well over a year now with inconsistent results, mainly due to the OEM steam wand (I don't want to modify the wand) & due to changing coffee type every 1kg bag through the MK2 Eureka Mignon..... So with that I have been thinking of buying a new La Pavoni Europiccola Lever Espresso Machine in lieu of the Gaggia. Would this be a wise move for someone who drinks 90% milk based drinks?
  6. Eureka Mignon Mk2 Gloss Black, complete with original box & instructions. Bought from bella Barista May 2014 (Have receipt) Has been used privately and now used as my 3rd grinder in cafe (used for decaf, so not so used so much) Want £190 as in great nick. Also have larger hopper will sell that for £10 (Has a very small crack in top corner (See pic) Can post, but you will pay. Based Hastings, East Sussex (If you want to collect)
  7. At the moment I'm using a Baratza Virtuoso grinder for medium and dark roasts and only throw in the amount of beans I require per drink and never store beans in the hopper. The Baratza is perfect for this, as there is virtually no retention and it's quick to clean, but I want to upgrade to a new Eureka Mignon MKII to complement my upgraded Gaggia Classic. Can anybody tell me if the Mignon would be suitable to use in this way? I don't mind losing a couple of grams of coffee with a small purge, but don't want to waste enough for an entire shot considering my current usage.
