  1. Can someone help me identify this machine? Any info appreciated. Thanks in advance, Matias
  2. This is an advert for my recently replaced espresso machine. I bought it new from BellaBarista on Jan 4 2013 (I still have the receipt). It suffered a leaking relief valve in 2015, which was replaced and throughout its life has been regularly de-scaled and cleaned. Otherwise I have had no problems with it. It has delivered around 3000 espressos in its time with me and provided an excellent follow-on from a Gaggia that I had used before treating myself to a retirement present. A slippery slope. Initially I used (Brita) filtered water and then moved over to Volvic bottled water.
  3. Looks in decent nick and saying only home use? Good price if so. https://www.gumtree.com/p/coffee-machines/expobar-leva-dual-boiler-coffee-machine/1254050720
  4. 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
  5. I have around £500 to spend on a machine and before I take the plunge on a new machine I would be interested in a decent quality used one must have original box and be willing to post Thanks in advance
  6. I am selling my Expobar Brewtus IV (aka Office Leva). Double boiler, rotary pump, plumb only. In good condition, some scratches on drip tray. It's a 2013 model I bought it in March this year, it was used lightly in a commercial setting for 1 year (grinder that came with it had 800 shot count), they sold it as coffee wasn't selling. I have used it daily for 2-3 espresso. Only been used with bottled water (I cant plumb it in). It's been backflushed with calypuff. Comes with naked portafilter and regular pf. Double basket and whiteyj's 3d printed pf holder. I am selling
  7. So I finally got to decaling the brewtus and foolishly thought it would be easy. I had the idea of syphoning the descaler in and out after a few hours before flushing. In my mind this would have been a lot quicker and easier than running the pump. Turns out I couldn't get he wrench on anything and even if I could I wouldn't have been comfortable with removing anything on there. Can anybody give me a tip here? What's easiest and best to remove? I was thinking the manometer fitting on the brew boiler and temp probe on the steam boiler, but could go for the vacuum breaker too. Al
  8. Hello again, So, I received my new Leva DB yesterday evening and seem to be having some issues with getting the Brew Boiler up to temp. The PID has been set at 92, but I cant get the temp past 65. When the machine was turned on for an hour to heat up, the temp displayed on the PID only rose to about 35 and when I ran the pump constantly the temp eventually crept up to 65, but no higher. Tried it again this morning and left it to heat for 45 minutes but the temp displayed on the PID was only 19... Tried resetting the PID a couple of times but this made no difference. Could it be
  9. Hi All, I purchased this in June 2015 from Bella Barista, it is the plumbed/tanked version but I have only used the reservoir with bottled water. I used it quite a lot to start, but then I moved house at the end of last year and have never really got back into it and am drinking brewed pretty much exclusively now. Will have a year of warranty from Bella Barista assuming that it transfers. Always back flushed with water & puly caf regularly. I also have a Eureka Mignon MKI for sale, a Rocket naked portafilter with 15g & 18g VST baskets + stock basket. Also a Made by Knock 58
  10. I'm not sure which thread but i seem to remember someone mentioning the prospect of pressure profiling on a Brewtus by adjusting the OPV during extraction. So for you more experienced Brewtus users I ask: - Has anyone tried playing with adjusting the OPV during extraction? - How low can the OPV go without risking damage? - What else should be considered if you're planning on doing it? - Should I even bother with trying?
  11. Hi all, I have a minor issue with my Expobar and was wondering if anyone would care to recommend a mobile technician who covers south east London. TIA Greg
  12. OK, this is now driving me crazy. I'm an impatient guy and need to get a new espresso machine to replace my cheap, now broken, machine. I had purchased a machine on here, but that fell through as it developed a fault. I have a wanted ad for an Expobar Dual Boiler / something similar, but it seems these machines don't come up that often. I'm thinking of going for new, but that doesn't put much in my budget range (£800). So I'm thinking of upping the budget to cover an Expobar Dual Boiler from Bella Barista; this would be on a credit card so not a general budget for used items. I can't
  13. I'm thinking it's an Expobar leva dual boiler? Anyone confirm? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/111927609938?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

  15. Hi Took cam out and regreased following chemical backflush. Got cam back in but having problems - pressure not going up to 9 bar.....sitting at 2 bar. Is it possible that the cam is in the wrong position as at the mid point, the pressure goes up... Videos: Any help appreciated. Thanks Paul
  16. Hi All, forgive me if this is posted in the wrong area! As soon as the machine is powered on, there is continuous leaking coming from the safety release valve. If I turn on the machine and pull the pour lever, small amounts of water start coming through the group head but still leaks on top of the main boiler. Machine only has 2 months of usage! (not descaled yet which I know is bad, not sure if this is the culprit?) Not sure where to go from here, I'm in Devon and am happy to recieve any recommendations from pro's who might be able to help. I unfortunately bought this from a co
  17. I'm cleaning up a used Expobar Office Control and am thinking I'd like to insulate the boiler. I like what I see here: #3 For those of you who've insulated a boiler on an HX machine of this size, have you noticed any downsides? I'm concerned about unforeseen consequences. Thank you.
  18. I'm interested in this machine listed on ebay: http://www.ebay.es/itm/Cafetera-expobar-office-leva-eb-61-1-gr-/161892836418?hash=item25b190a442:g:7ssAAOSw~bFWJT4b But it bothers me that it doesn't say "Expobar" on the logo and instead it says "Stracto". Makes me believe this is a capsule or pod machine. Do they really do capsule for E 61? Searched like crazy on google for Expobar Stracto, but can't find any info about this machine. On the Crem int. site I can see that they sell a group head conversion kit for the Office Leva. Could this be it? If so, would it be possible to rip out this k
  19. Had my expobar office leva on a timer, unfortunately my daughter went to fill her cup up with hot water, but as the machine was on a timer and was off at the time , obviously no water was coming out . But sadly she didnt turn the hot water tap off, and when the expobar came back on in the morning the hot water was running through the tap. I reckon it must have been running the hot water through that tap for at least 30 mins. Anyway now the expobar will not turn on i tried to reset the little red button inside the machine but it keeps tripping the electric. Any ideas what i could do to solve
  20. Bought the 3 pack of steam tips from bella barista this week. These fit a wide variety of machines and have an 8m thread. I'm keeping the 3 hole tip. I am selling both the 4 hole tips - one with central hole and the one without. Price is £10 each tip including registered post.
  21. Hi, I'm sure this must be here somwhere but I can't find it. I'd like to know how to reset the PID to its factory default - just in case I mess it up whilst playing with the programming. TIA, Tim.
  22. Picked up my Expobar dual leva and mignon today. Thanks to bella barista for a good few hours! Have spent this afternoon dialling in with oldish beans. I got it at a ratio of 17g 32g 25 seconds. It's spending about 10 seconds of this in the preinfuser. It is still a little sour. I am tamping quite hard to try and slow it down. Would it be best to leave it a second or 2 longer therefore a higher output and hopefully capture a little more sweetness? The grind is as fine as it can be at the moment because it is clumping quite a bit and I can't make it any finer because the grinder just stops. I
  23. I'm after a good portafilter for my machine. i have one already, but it cups around the base of the basket far too much. When using an 18g basket the outer droplets that form always end up running around the rim and down the bloomin handle! What a mess!!! looking at pics online, others seem to be much more open, allowing the droplets to merge normally. Recommendations welcome.
  24. Having finally given into the temptation to upgrade to a Rocket R58 my Expobar Brewtus II is now up for sale. I've owned it since November 2009 and it's served me very well. I can't really justify the difference between this and what I've spent on the Rocket based on the coffee produced - I just fancied one. I would describe it as well used but also well maintained and cared for. There are only a few occasions that it's been used for more than one morning coffee a day as that's enough for me and my wife doesn't like such strong coffee. I live in a soft water area and have only
  25. Still looking for a DB myself only sold on the Profitec after visiting Bella Barista Ends Wednesday http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/391115948786?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
