  1. Gaggia Classic Ri8161/40 purchased from Currys 24/11/2011 (still have receipt). Light use as I only drink coffee at the weekend and then only 2-3 cups per day. Regularly cleaned with puly caff and backflushed. The machine is working absolutley fine and produces great coffee, but could probably do with the grouphead seal being replaced (as I never have) and showerscreen. Probably best bet for a new owner would be to buy the service kit for £20 and replace seals and gaskets and then it will be as new. Some light scratches on the top where cups have been warmed. The machine comes with all original parts, and in addition I have upgraded the steam wand to the Rancilio version. Also included with the sale are a bottomless portafilter, 18g VST basket, 58mm Motta art.620 tamper, 2 x milk steaming jugs and the remainder of the puly caff that I havent used. Comes with original box, portafilter normal and pressurised baskets and manual etc. Also for sale is an Iberital MC2 doserless grinder. Again lightly used and cleaned regularly with Puly Grind crystals. Machine purchased from Happy Donkey December 2011. Both items are only for sale as we have recently had a new kitchen fitted, and the wife insisted I sell the 2 separate items and buy an all in one (Sage Barrista Express). She doesn't drink coffee so she doesn't appreciate how much better the coffee is from this combination than an all in one machine (I lost the argument!). Not keen on postage as everything I ever seem to receive via courier gets somehow damaged, so collection please from Bristol/Bath area. Looking for £150 for the Classic with all extras, and £80 for the grinder. For now I would hope to sell both together. I don't intend to sell any of the accessories separately. If you have any more questions or require any more photos then please don't hesitate to ask. https://photos.app.goo.gl/1VYStDx7zTaLrqR2A
  2. Good afternoon everyone, I’ve got a bit of a problem with my MC2 (non doser) the timer doesn’t work so after a chat with Scott over at happy donkey I ordered a new PCB. I have just fitted the new PCB but it keeps tripping out as soon as I press the porter filter in to grind. Has anyone got any ideas on this on? the grinder worked with the old PCB just no use of the timer.
  3. 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.
  4. Looking for: SOLD Iberital IB7 1 Group Handfill Rotary Pump HX Espresso Machine in excellent condition, just two weeks old and barely used, always in a home environment. Only ever filled with Waitrose Essentials bottled water to prevent scale. These retail for around £2,200 and are fully commercial machines finished in stainless steel and black, with volumetric buttons and integrated lighting of the preparation area. They have fantastic steaming capabilities and can brew/steam simultaneously. The machine is extremely well built and very quiet with rubber mountings to reduce noise from the pump and motor to extremely low levels. A high quality adjustable Parker pressurestat allows control of the 6 litre boiler temperature band and thus brew temperature from the 1.8kW heater. It has integral boiler and brew pressure manometers. Comes complete with the usual one and two spout portafilters, single and double baskets and a blind filter for back flushing. This was intended as a temporary summer replacement for a much loved ten year old similar unit that recently died, with a view to eventually obtaining either a Londinium-R or ECM later in the year, but then came the email from Bella Barista about new stock price increases so we grabbed the last Synchronika. Hence the sale with a slightly heavy heart of a beautiful nearly new Iberital. Any questions please ask. This is a bargain and a wonderful deal for any commercial user or perhaps an enthusiast looking for a serious machine who has the room to house it and is happy to undertake the learning curve of the flushing routine that comes with one of these mighty beasts. They are easy to work on and parts are industry standard so readily available. They go on for years if looked after. Open to sensible offers. CASH ON COLLECTION ONLY PLEASE from north Oxfordshire/Bucks border - This is probably too heavy to ship safely, though open to ideas. Some technical data from the Iberital website: Adjustment of the touchpad settings. Boiler Capacity: 1GR 6L. Heating element: 1GR 1.800W. Stainless steel steam pipes. Anti-splash hot water outlet. Automatic boiler fill. Heating element protector device. Work area L.E.D lighting. Internal motor and pump. Dimensions: Iberital IB7 1GR: 445mm (Length) x 508mm (Depth) x 460mm (Height) Weight: Iberital IB7 1GR: 37 Kg The smaller photo is stock from the Iberital website to give a better view of the machine overall. Note, it does not show the handfill pipe to the rear left top. I have discussed the sale with Glenn and he is happy for it to be offered on the forums. He knows me from years back. I will leave it exclusively for sale on the forum until the end if the week to give members first chance, then will open it up elsewhere including eBay by the weekend. Now also for sale in external sites.
  5. Hi, I currently have a Graef Cm80 and have been quite happy with it but i don't find it gives a very good consistent grind for espresso... I like the look of the Sage by Heston grinder because of the in-built scales it has in it which I reckon would be useful - but the Iberital MC2 is a bit cheaper second hand. But my question is this - would either the Sage grinder or the MC2 give better results than my Graef CM80 i already have? Thanks for your time!! Rory
  6. I've recently returned to the forums after a bit of time away for about a year. When I left I had a frankly pathetic Krups XP5200 coffee machine and a Krups GVX2 burr grinder... Oh dear. Then I moved onto a Gaggia Cubika with the Krups grinder before upgrading to the Iberital MC5 you see below. Finally and very recently I've upgraded to a Gaggia Classic machine and wow what a difference! As you can see it's the Gaggia Classic Gold. I've got the basic bits to go alongside it, scales, tamper and milk jug as well as my custom patented grinds catcher (a glass ashtray!) and my trimmed down hopper to fit under the counter. My modifications so far are setting the OPV to 10 bar as well as fitting a Rancilio Millennium steam arm (found on a lot of commercial/prosumer machines)
  7. Well I have set myself off now on the subject of moving on from my Gaggia baby, Iberital MC2 setup, so here are my musings and all comments are greatly appreciated. Machine Expobar Office Pulsar - seems to be a lot of espresso machine for the money, though doesn`t have a full E61 grouphead with the little lever to do the extraction. Nuova Simonelli Oscar - Again a good spec for the money, but all plastic body and no hot water tap for the lady wifes weekday americano. Fracino Cherub - Uk built so I assume easy parts availability, but the bigger boiler and element wattage might mean a bigger hit on electricity usage, again no sexy little lever to play with when extracting. Expobar Office Leva - seems to be the lowest price full E61 machine so full stainless steel finish with knobs and lever experience but a couple of hundred quid more than the others on my list. Or do I save some more and get a more expensive machine, will I reap any additional coffee quality benefits. Grinder My Iberital MC2 seems to be pretty good but some comments I have read and a somewhat damning review on Bella Barista suggest I should seriously consider upgrading this too. The Eureka Mignon got a great review suggesting it is the equal near enough of the Mazzer mini which is way more money. Macap MC4 - is it any better? Mahlkonig Vario - Mostly rave reviews but I am suspicious of new technology for the sake of it might not be as bullet proof as more traditional grinders over time. Buy a second hand one off Ebay - maybe a lot of grinder foor the money could then cost a bit on refurb costs and no come back if it goes bang in some expensive way. Other good well priced grinders that I have not come across yet. Head now exploding with possibilities, definite no`s are plumbing in due to having very hard water where I am in Lincolnshire (I use a filter jug) and reluctance to start drilling holes and then deciding to have a kitchen reorganise with resulting cosmetic issues. Don
  8. After a massive bout of "upgraditis" i've decided to put my new MC2 up for sale. Purchased from Happy Donkey on 14th October (it has ground approx 2kg of coffee) so is as new condition (no dings, knocks or scratches). Have purchased a new Compak K10, so will no longer be needing it. Please read any reviews about this grinder, it is a fantastic entry point (i'm just a sucker for expensive shiny stuff). Cost me £141.90 including delivery, but i'll accept £90 delivered Please PM me if interested Many Thanks Andy
  9. Hi All. After much deliberation I've decided that I refuse to put any more money in the pockets of bad coffee shops and so will be buying a beginners setup to satisfy my coffee needs. I thought the most logical first stop would be among similar cofficianados for some valuable advice. Love the site BTW. About me. I work from home running my own business consultancy called Outstand with my business partner. Both of us enjoy coffee and where possible we buy from local independant cafe rather than Starbucks etc. I am boycotting my local Costa for reasons i'll not bore you with. In a previous life I worked in a bar/cafe where I became attached to a rather lovely 2 group commercial coffee machine - polished to the point of obsession. I love the machinery as well as the product . Anyway, I probably wouldn't describe mayself as a barista but i had a pretty good go at it. So back to the point. I'm looking at buying some equipment to keep me happy and avoid expensive trips to town. Max budget will be £150 for the machine Grinder will have to go on the Christmas list for now. Beans I can obtain from a specialist in nearby Lincoln. So my question would be, should I turn ebay upside down trying to find a better quality machine at used prices (with the associated risks) or should I get a new machine (such as Dualit or Cuisineart) where I can be sure of the warranty but may have to make sacrifices in terms of quality and life expectancy. Finally, is there a classifieds section on here? Thanks for taking the time to read this far.
  10. A newbie question I'm afraid...and possibly useful info for new owners of the Iberital MC2... I've had my MC2 since christmas and Im on my second bag of beans now (first HD Brazillian and now on to Compass) - I managed to get the grind spot on for the first bag (2 oz in 25 seconds) and im in the process of re-tweaking for the compass). The machine is fab!!, although it does take some tweaking...Ive started keeping a diary (again, my wife sniggers!!) and I'm recording the outcome in coffee taste and quality after each 'tweak'. So I know that 14g is my favored double dose, Ive set the bathroom scales up in the kitchen (wife laughing again!) to ensure that my tamp pressure is a constant (30lb)...Keeping a couple of key factors constant (dose and tamp) I can use the extraction times as a guide to fill two 2 oz glasses (>30 seconds = too fine... Ive decided to use the join between the plastic and the metal body on the MC2 as my base mark for adjustment. I'm roughly in the right zone and now turning the grind dial in 1/4 turns to get the the extraction delivery to around 25-30 seconds in to two 2 oz glasses... Just wondering how others make these fine adjustments between different beans? is 1/4 turn too finer adjustement? does anyone remove the residual grounds from the shute before and after each adjustment?...cheers... p.s it is remarkable how different beans and roasts need different adjustments...part of the learning journey!!!
  11. The Iberital MC2 is an exceptional grinder for the price (currently around £100 at leading coffee retailers) I am looking to buy 1-2 of these for training purposes and use in a home environment. I am leaning heavily towards the doserless model on the belief that the amount of grounds can be determined to fill the portafilter using a timer that is adjustable. Are there any reasons why I should get the doser version over the doserless?
  12. It has been 2 months since I first started on a journey of coffee with these babies. Such an emotional moment when I have to swap out the Iberital MC5 for the Mazzer Super Jolly. I was getting more and more used to the Iberital MC5. Well, sometimes, things just have to get better. Before: After: Never knew I have to waste so much coffee ground when swapping a new grinder into place.
  13. Iberital MC2 grinder for sale at £85 (plus postage if required - would prefer pickup in London) Grinder and burrs in great condition. Bought on here 5 months ago, and has had very light use since (only used weekends for 1-2 coffees each day). Originally bought in late 2012. Reason for selling is I just upgraded to a Vario. Here are photos from the previous sale - can upload more recent ones if people want, but there's no change!
  14. Hi, I have a Cunill Iberital Marfill grinder which I bought second hand. The grinder was working perfectly the last time that I used it, yet today it mysteriously is acting very, very strangely. When I switched it on, the sound was very muffled - it's usually quite a noisy beast - and it did not seem to be grinding, although things that needed to spin, were. I emptied the hopper, unplugged it and proceeded to take it apart. I thought that maybe there was a build up of coffee grounds somewhere ... if you are still reading, you've probably already understood that I am an amateur and shouldn't be taking things apart. Anyway, I literally have no idea what is going on. I have cleaned everything, put it back together again but I have no idea where coffee grounds are going and why it just isn't doing what it should/has been previously. Do I need new burrs? Should they be super sharp to touch? Any ideas? Please could someone help this damsel in distress?
  15. Hi All, I have for sale my trusty Iberital MC2 bought 6 months ago brand new from Happy Donkey. It has been used for approx 2 espressos a day since then. I have filed down the ridges in the exit chute to aid grind retention and there are a couple of minor dings on the back caused by overzealous back slapping whilst cleaning for sale, other than that it is as new. I'm looking for £60 collected but would be happy to box for shipping if the buyer covers costs of postage. Apologies for the picture orientation! Thanks Rob
  16. Hi everyone! I've been (just) surviving for the last 5 years without an espresso machine on filter coffee. Finally, after dropping hints for about the last year, my wife bought me a Rancilio Silvia for Xmas just gone. The new machine is great although it has been quite a learning curve getting the most out of it. Thanks to these forums I've managed to find the answers to all of the problems I've had. I've also finally taken the plunge and got myself a fairly decent grinder, a Mazzer Super Jolly. I've only just picked it up but the few shots I've just pulled have been excellent, a real step up from my Iberital MC2! Looking forward now to really perfecting my coffee in the coming months!
  17. Having a bit of a clear out... Here is a single group Iberital L'anna in good working order, just had front end service. This is a plumb in water, not manual fill. Doesn't need to be hard wired, comes with a 13A plug. Includes 2 porta filters, one single, one double, plus drain hose. Bad points: one of the preset dose buttons doesn't work, it really makes no different though as you have 3 other identical buttons to programme as you wish (how many do you need?). Looking for £595, you're welcome to come and view/collect near Norwich or courier for around £40 (It's heavy so will need to go on a pallet). Cheers Chris
  18. Nice starter set up for someone machine, grinder and accessories for £170 https://www.gumtree.com/p/coffee-machines/gaggia-classic-espresso-machine/1168144802
  19. Hey guys & gals, I'm on the hunt for an Iberital MC2 - thought I'd put the word out on here before biting the bullet and buying new. Thanks, Oli
  20. Is it all iberital grinders or just the mc2 that has some shockingly horrible build quality?. I know the Spanish make some pretty horrid white goods but the mc2 build quality is nasty. Self taping screws into metal work, brackets on dosers that aren't straight, UN-insulated electrical connections. It's horrid, I'm not knocking it's grind capabilities but what must the Germans have thought when they bought up seat.
  21. Hi guys, ive noticed that my Iberital MC2 has been making a weird noise. I never noticed it because I always have coffee in it but today i finished the coffee and gave it a bit of a clean with a brush and i noticed its making this noise. Now that i think about it, it made that noise when i would grind coffee i just always thought it was the last bean or 2 going through the burrs after it stopped grinding so i never took notice of it. Im going to try to upload the audio clip and i hope it works. (sent it to myself using audio record on whatsapp) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1_sgHJlqpbpellDN2x1VEx3Wnc/view?usp=sharing
  22. Afternoon all, After careful deliberation I am putting my barely used grinder up for sale. I bought this from Pete at Espresso Underground in mid/late december 2012 and the burrs have just about now seasoned and settled in and it gives a lovely grind, but I feel a doser just isnt right for the amount I use at home, hence the sale. I'd never had a doser machine before and i can see why people like that, but its just not for me long term. Now, these are currently £190 plus VAT new but I am willing to let this go for £40 less and of course sans VAT for what is practically a new machine that will live longer than most of us probably! I should add that its badged as Iberital but that's just the badging. Also it has a static reversible tamper in the front (2 different size bases, you just turn it either way up) which can be very easily removed if not required. Will need to be collected from N.London or I can meet within a reasonable distance. I've attached 2 pics, one in situ and the other closer up. Please ignore the orange dots at the bottom of the hopper, these are just small sticky dots i used as markers for different blends. These peel off cleanly.
  23. Finally settling on a gaggia classic (I think) so which grinder should I partner it was looking at the nemox lux steel thingy or the fugly iberital both bout same price? Or is there anything else to consider? many thanks
  24. Hi all, I have just recently upgraded to a Mazzer Super Jolly. Got it from a fellow forum member. So I am recommending this Iberital MC5 commercial grinder to everyone who are just about to start a coffee journey like myself. I got the Iberital MC5 from another forum member about a few weeks ago, but stumbled across a Mazzer which I could not resist. From my experience, this is a much better grinder than the Iberital MC2 which everyone would start off with. The built is sturdy, so I would really recommend it to anyone interested in a coffee journey. Of course, you can't compare it with a mazzer. But you have no worries about heat dissipation as the motor and the body have a circumferential gap of 3 cm on each side. So here it is, the Iberital MC5 commercial grinder, sometimes known as the Cunill Brasil. Details of the Iberital MC5 • Power : 230V/110V/220V - Frequency: 50Hz / 60Hz - Phases: 1(ingle phase) • Rpm: 1300 / 1600 • Motor equipped with thermal protector • 60 mm diameter tempered steel grinding wheels (flat burrs) • Duration of grinding wheels: 500Kg coffee - Hopper capacity: 1kg of coffee grains • Dispenser adjustment: 5 - 12 g of ground coffee - ON/OFF switch (in green) • The dispenser lever can be placed on the left or right side. • Comes with the UK three pin plug. Here are some pictures Asking price: £100 + postage. Delivery method: Preferred courier could be discussed over pm. If interested in collection, I am in Nottingham. Drop by for a cup of coffee and have a chat before cash on delivery Payment method: Bank wired transfer and Paypal(Friends and family) are welcome. Will be donating partial of the payment to Coffeeforum UK as a token of appreciation to provide this platform for every coffee enthusiast. I learnt a lot from this forum and hope everyone new would really appreciate the existence of CFUK. Cheers, Ivan
  25. Hi all, I have been offered an MC2 Doser very cheap (£40). Reading around I think I'd prefer the auto version but I can't really turn it away at the price and funds are tight. These seem like popular models so I was wondering if anyone with one could give me a few of the pros and cons of the doser model - specifically in comparison to the manual? To get an idea of use it would be paired with a Gaggia Classic. It would be 'working' for two people and 90% of the time we drink espresso based drinks rather than filter. Thanks again for any info!
