  1. So I've just had a bit of a mare attempting to clean my MC2 and I've managed to ruin the dispenser spout. Anyone know where I can get a replacement? I've found this http://www.pennineteaandcoffee.co.uk/MC2A+DISPENSE+SPOUT/0_CAAA121_CAAA195_CAAA221/PRAA807.htm#.WSGaeWgrJPZ but they have a £25 minimum order, and it's a £3.99 part. Any alternatives?
  2. Selling my Rancilio Silvia & Iberital MC2 plus extras. Never use this anymore since I only have drip coffee now. Also included is a naked portafilter, LM 17g basket, electronic scales and electronic timer. Also have the standard portafilter, single and double baskets, tamper, spare thermostats, cleaner and descaler and instructions. Used lightly only for a couple of espresso shots on weekend mornings when home and never really used the steamer function. In great and clean condition with only a small chip in the group cowling. Pick up only in Haggerston, London. £300.
  3. Due the recent upgrade my starter set up is for sale. Gaggia classic with brass plate, OPV mode and rancilio steam wand Iberital MC2 (doserless version) Tamper from Happy donkey Portafilter with 7g, 14g and cleaning basket 2 glass shot cups 2 latte glass cups manual and box for the machine Machine has been used with bottled water (tesco ashbeck), regularly cleaned, backflushed and descaled. New group head gasket fitted few weeks ago. Prefer to sell it as whole pack for £220, also prefer collection only, can also deliver to Redditch/Stratford/Evesham/Birmingham area.
  4. After my recent upgrade to the Super Jolly, my trusty Iberital MC2 Doserless is now redundant. It's given me excellent service, and hasn't missed a beat since I purchased in in 2009, grinding 1-2 shots per day since then. Ideally it'd be picked up in Glasgow - I really doubt I'd be able to pack it with sufficient protection for courier. (Apologies for the rotated photos, I can't seem to flip them the right way...)
  5. Iberital MC5 going for £50 down in London http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ibertal-coffee-grinder-red-/162082597048?hash=item25bce028b8:g:ibYAAOSwzchXRaOr A good deal at £50, they have 59mm flat burrs, a definite step up from the MC2 but have quite a footprint! More info on HappyDonkey:- http://www.happydonkey.co.uk/hd0870-iberital-mc5-red-coffee-grinder.html
  6. I'm wondering if there's much of an improvement in the Mazzer Super Jolly over the Iberital MC5. At present I've got an MC5 but a Super Jolly has come up cheap locally. To anybody unaware of the MC5 it's 1300rpm with 60mm flat burrs and a doser but having not used a Super Jolly I'm not sure how to compare! I'm going to guess there wouldn't be much of an improvement and the best option is to wait for a better grinder to come up. Thanks!
  7. Nice starter set up for someone machine, grinder and accessories for £170 https://www.gumtree.com/p/coffee-machines/gaggia-classic-espresso-machine/1168144802
  8. 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
  9. Hi All, I just bought a 2nd hand Iberital MC2. I know it is not the ultimate grinder, but for the price seemed pretty good. Anyway, I'm wondering if I'm missing a part or something. The hopper seems extremely loose and just moved about on top of the grinder. The grinder itself seems very loose on the base (I'm guessing maybe tightening the screws on the bottom, or replacing the base with something more solid might help). See this vid of the hopper wobbling... is this expected?! https://vid.me/R7HA Thanks -Matt
  10. Hey guys, I've finally been allowed to upgrade but I need to get my current set up sold first. I have a Gaggia Classic (2006 model) working and in great condition for its age. Also has the Silvia steam wand upgrade. OPV mod has not been done. Basically, this is a virgin Classic with only the wand done. I have an Iberital MC2 available also and can bundle it together for £250 all in. I am in the Manchester area but also available in Warrington area. Collection preferred but delivery may be possible depending on distance (would drop off myself but prefer not to have
  11. Hello. I'm looking to upgrade from my Hario hand grinder to something a bit more serious. I've got a budget of about £100-£150 and the grinder will be mostly used for filter/drip coffee like aeropress and cafetiere. I saw an Iberital grinder on eBay, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Iberital-coffee-grinder-with-Dropbox-/321950951935?hash=item4af5c5a9ff:g:M-MAAOSw5IJWcay9. Does anyone have any experience of this grinder? Is it worth the listed price? If not do you have any recommendations of grinders to look at in this price range? Thanks!
  12. Hi can anyone tell me what model this Iberital grinder is? Have been offered it and just need to do research/check dimensions. I have googled it and there is 1 model that is close (Cunill Tauro) but it's different colour. Thanks.
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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!
  16. 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_sgHJlqpbp
  17. I've recently upgraded to a Fracino Ariete and Eureka Mignon combo so reluctantly I have to part with my classic and MC2. This is a great combination for someone starting out on their coffee journey - you can learn loads on this lovely machine, especially with the included naked portafilter. There is loads of great advice for Classic owners on this forum so you will never be short of advice! 2012 Gaggia Classic Modded with Sylvia steam arm. Good working order except bulb in power switch that has never worked. The all important boiler light works and you can see if power is on o
  18. Iberital MC2 Doser version for sale due to upgrade. Purchased from Happy Donkey in 2010. Very light usage over the 4 years and still grinds as well as the day I received it. The bottom part of the doser has a bit of damage where my wife sat the iron too close and the plastic melted. It's not that noticeable and does not affect the functionality. There's a bit of rust and bubbling on the powder coating around the bottom, I think it's from when we were in a house with pretty bad damp in the kitchen…I took the base off to check inside and there's no sign of it in there. The portafiler holder is c
  19. 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.
  20. Got it 2nd hand today, my first electric grinder. I've done one grind, for a moka pot. It's a much, much finer grind than my Rhino and I'm noticing much more taste - very happy bunny. But it does stagger me how much of the grind gets stuck in the machine. I put 22g in and got 20g out. I used a brush in the dosing chute but there's still at least 1.5 grams in there. Not exactly a good recipe for fresh coffee, is it? It seems I need to dismantle it to get all the old grounds out. (Not just my old grounds from today, but the previous owner's, which could be centuries old.) Can anyone recommend a
  21. Hi guys Strange one?? I have a Iberital MC 2 'Noir' auto-grinder, which all of a sudden appears to be grinding so fine that the coffee almost comes out as powder, my puk flattens a lot thinner, and my poor takes forever? ??? What's more, it doesn't seem to adjust. I used it this morning, as I do on a daily basis, and no problems. It's also only ever had minor tweaks, as I've been using the same bean and grind for the last year or so.......... Does anyone have any ideas what so ever !?!? Cheers all Bri..
  22. Iberital MC2 grinder for sale at £85 (plus postage at cost if required - would prefer pickup in London). Offered it for sale a few weeks ago but had to cancel the sale because my upgrade (Vario) fell through. Have found another Vario now so here we are again... 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. Here are photos from the previous sale - can upload more recent ones if people want, but there's no change!

  24. Hi all, I’m looking to buy a grinder to pair with my delonghiespresso machine, this is my first machine and I’m aiming to upgrade to agaggia classic a bit later in the year. But for now I’m looking at getting myfirst espresso grinder, ideally a second hand one. I have a limited budget ( Gaggia MDF Iberital MC2 Ascaso i-2 What are peoples thoughts on the above? Should I pick 1 overthe others? Also if anyone knows of any worthy grinders coming up forsale in the near future please let me know. Thanks, Dan
  25. 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
