  1. Hi all, my melitta varianza cps machine isn't working well! It runs a drink process fully, but the beans aren't dropping through so im just left with hot water. The grinder is working and seems to think it has beans as the machine doesn't stop and give the "refill beans" on display Its out of warranty so any advice is greatly received!
  2. For Sale Black Mazzer Mini Electric in lovely condition with little use approx 5 years Old No marks as you can see by the Pics Price £275 can provide more images if required
  3. Serious grinder , excellent grind consistency for Filter coffee. 65mm burrs and 780W motor. This unit is used and has typical scratches etc but perfect working order , the burrs would last forever in a home use setting as its only had approx 10kg through it over the last couple of years I suspect they are barely run in. In terms of results in the cup this would give the EK43 a run for its money, very different cup profile to the EK but very clean and arguably sweeter. If I had no need to do espresso ** at home I would have no issues running this as my home grinder. ** Ive never
  4. As above with 54 mm ceramic burrs by Ditting, also comes with conversion kit back to steel burrs, all accessories present and unused. Only bought the grinder as new in `July and at most 2 coffees a day, can grind by weight and/or time into a hopper, also grind by time into portafiller frame. Grinder is as new been thoroughly cleaned, comes with a 1 year warranty which I am sure is transferable, any other info tech etc Baratza.com Price £620, live in Wigan area, would be willing to travel up-to 50 miles to deliver or meet half way, same price if someone wants it posting.
  5. Hey guys, I currently have a nespresso, I really want to get into the espresso hobby and I have been reading a lot for a few months while I have been looking for a good deal on a coffee machine. I don't live in the UK and here in Portugal is not that easy getting used machines or even good brand new ones. I have been waiting for the Duo Temp Pro to be on sale again, but yesterday I found a used La Pavoni Professional with around 5 years and seems to be in perfect state and has been serviced a few months ago for £175, which seems like a great deal. I have been reading on it and since I wo
  6. Hi guys, For sale is my Mazzer Mini E Type A grinder, with 4 month old burrs fitted. I bought it from a user on this forum about 18 months ago, and it’s seen one or two 18g shots per day since I’ve had it, and the previous owner said they made 4-6 shots a day. It is 6 years old, and only ever used domestically. It has genuine Mazzer Super Jolly burrs, fitted 4 months ago, which are still very sharp, so the grinder can produce an excellent 18g shot in approx. 10-13 seconds, and I’ve applied SuperLube to the grind adjustment threads (as recommended by users on this forum), so the
  7. Nothing I can add really to what you've probably already read/heard about the EK43S so I'll not ramble on. It's had a mere 6kg of coffee through it. The SSP Silver Knight burrs are amazing and offer more range in the espresso zone than the originals without losing the signature profile of the EK (as best as my basic pallet can taste). 6 Months old and had 6kg through it. Any inspection welcome. Supplied with all the original packaging. £1850 No offers thanks (collection from Sheffield). Images added shortly, but it can be viewed on eBay, where it's also listed, if y
  8. Hi. Sorry if this has been asked before, i did try a search. Does anyone know of a short hopper option for the Rocket Faust, i'm expecting delivery any day but i already know it's around 10mm too high for where i need it to fit! Thanks
  9. Greetings! I was wondering if anyone has any experience/views on the new Mignon Manuale? While it doesn't have all the features of the more expensive Mignons (Manuale is at £239) it does have their anti-clumping system. I tried a quick search of the forum but couldn't find anything on the Manuale. Thanks for your time Martyn
  10. Hi guys, I have a 2006 Gaggia Classic. I am looking to buy my first grinder but I’m having difficulty settling on a model. I have about £350 to spend. Ideally I’m looking for a new grinder due to warranty etc. I couldn’t fit a Mazzer etc given my current lack of kitchen space! Up until about a month ago I drank espressos - about 5 doubles a day I think. However, I have recently discovered the joys of pour over coffee so I am thinking about whether I need to be looking for an all purpose grinder rather than an espresso grinder. I do like the eureka specialita and thought I’d settled on this til
  11. Following on from the thread the other day from the Host Milano show, have seen some more info on the LM Swift Mini. Not really my cup of tea (or coffee) but seems like it can do a lot, Also tamps for you. Didnt see any mention of burrs or size though. But just thought id throw the thread out there. Others can do the donkey work looking for technical data then.
  12. Hey guys. My wife's dentist she works with has a copper EKK43 for sale. He is looking at selling it as he doesn't use it enough. Here are some pictures. Is anyone interested or know what he could get for it? Its had very little use, he said about 1 year of use at 250g a month roughly. Let me know if you're interested or know what he could get for it etc
  13. Putting my Mignon up for sale as I’m hoping to upgrade to a Niche Zero. Bought from Bella Barista in 2015 and used for on average 1 or 2 shots a day. I regularly put GRINDZ through it and give it a proper clean out from time to time (though not obsessively). It is in great condition with spotless paintwork. It is fitted with the timer but I’ve never used it! Located in SE London but I reckon it could be posted without too much trouble. Pics below; will try and add some of the burrs this evening.
  14. Evening, I've been practicing with some Co-op beans and trying to get a good ratio/pull time on my DTP. Good beans are arriving tomorrow but thought I'd get used to the whole process with these ones first. Grinding 17g into the pf straight from the SGP. I don't have a funnel and therefore clump management isn't the best. A funnel is on order. I'm aiming for roughly 1:2.5 in terms of weight in/out. Shot 1 - Grind setting of 8. Absolutely nothing out of the machine and it shut off after a minute. Water on top of puck. Shot 2 - Grind setting of 9. A total of 4g into my cup.
  15. Hello everyone! I have a Sage Smart Grinder (the original version, not the Pro) that I've just replaced with a Super Jolly. The Sage is a decent starter grinder, very capable for Aeropress and the like. It can also grind for espresso but isn't quite fine enough, I don't think. It was bought in late 2013 and has been used sporadically since. I'm asking £50 for the grinder and, depending on where you are, postage should be around £5-10. Comes with cleaning brush, 58mm portafilter guide and bottom tray only.
  16. Hi, so I’m thinking of going second hand as I’m on a limited budget of £250 (will stretch a little further if it’s amazing) I want something that makes the espresso in my gaggia classic in my budget(I’m a novice so all the gear and no idea at the moment anyway) i have had had a look through the forums and the Mazzers keep coming up I would really appreciate some help whittling down the choices or any new ideas! Apologies for asking a question that I’m sore has been answered 1000 times I’ve already made the mistake of buying wrong once and don’t want to repeat. Thanks matt
  17. I recently got bitten by the upgrade bug so it's time to find a new loving home for these two: 2016 ECM Mechanika Profi IV: £1100 2016 ECM S-Automatik 64 grinder: £350 £1350 if bought together (which would be my preference) These were bought new from BB in August 2016, so warranty has expired but they've both been good as gold. The machine had Brita tap water for the first year of its life, and has had Ashbeck ever since I moved house to an area with harder water. It's done roughly 2-4 shots a day. It's the rotary pump version and comes with plumb-in kit if you prefer to do th
  18. So I have tentative upgrade permission from the boss.... she started it (honest) with a 'would a bigger machine be faster?' after the usual 20+ mins to make 4 single and 1 double latte with my Sage DTP. 'Yes' says I 'a dual boiler would be much faster..... but a better grinder would taste better' (we both like the workmanlike styling of our Santos 4) Hence our dilemma - the Sage Dual Boiler would be an obvious upgrade from the DTP, but longevity seems a bit suspect. The new ACS Minima looks brilliant. Or do we stick with the DTP and buy a Niche? Or will we need to upgrade both (will t
  19. Hi guys, Hope all is well in the forums. Just went to grind my beans tonight, and "whirrrr" !! It has packed in on me ! Some questions for those in the know : Sounds like a struggling/failed motor. Is this likely? Is it an easy fix? Is the part(s) available? Is it ready for grinder heaven? I am in Middlesbrough, Teesside, if anyone local can offer any help?? Thank you all in advance.
  20. I know there are some clever bods on here who like an engineering challenge. Is there anyone near Preston who fancies trying to make my Santos more suitable for Espresso? I know about the stepless mod (although I still haven't done it), and I've not aligned the burrs.... and I'd assume a much bigger knob would also aid adjustability, but how good would/could it be?
  21. Just at the LCF. Peter Kilpatrick of Madebyknock is there. A travel Feldgrind 47 is £130 - not sure what pric3 the Honed but will be a bargain
  22. have managed to source a small 320g hopper which will clear my kitchen units, so i'm withdrawing this for now
  23. Hi guys new to the forum and loving looking around so far although i may end up spending a fortune on all the bean recommendations! Seems like a great community of knowledgeable folk with that in mind i am going to bore you all with another grinder question. I have a gaggia classic and recently got a bottomless portafilter for it, i was expecting to pull lovely looking shots like my local coffee shop - shout out little bird coffee house, Inverness, Scotland! - however as you can imagine i ended up with a disaster of multiple sprays everywhere! I presumed it was my poor tamping techni
  24. Due to family harmony, I have been reluctantly forced to re-home the coveted Jimbojohn Mazzer Super-modded-Jolly Perfect working condition, I have only put 1.5Kg beans through it and it purrs like a kitten. Mods include: shrink wrap clean sweep mod carbon fibre spinner portafilter holder lens hood hopper wooden doser cover wooden lens hood lid laser cut adjustment gauge coffee bean adjustment lever I have also added a PF holder that will accommodate the PF + a dosing funnel out of black walnut which ill throw in. will include all part
  25. I intend to upgrade from a Dualit 75002 so looking at smaller economical on demand flat burr type grinders. Prefer to buy used so I get a better model for less, hopefully up to £150. No hurry, so I can wait for the right one. Looking at Eureka Mignon, Mahlkonig Vario, Anfim KS-T, Quamar Q50E, Macap M2, Fiorenzato M4, Profitek Pro T64, Cunill Tranquillo, Rancilio Rocky, that kind of thing. Any I should prefer, any I should dismiss? Any good offers available?
