  1. I've read many threads form this site over recent years, and thought it's time to join and benefit from the combined wisdom as I'm about to take the scientific art of making good coffee more seriously. I have owned previously a Baby Class, which sadly expired a couple around 4 years ago, and couldn't find anyone to repair it local enough to justify the ££ so it went to the great cafe in the sky sadly. I kept my Iberital Marfil grinder, which has lived stored in my garage for the intervening years. Fast forward to this morning, and I bought a hardly used 2006 Classic, with a Made In Italy vinta
  2. Good morning everyone. A little background to why I am picking the items in the title before I start. I have only just very recently started my journey into the world of real coffee, having realised that instant coffee isn't actually coffee. Whenever I have tasted coffee using real coffee beans I always seem to enjoy the flavours but have never enjoyed instant. Now my wife is also a big fan of coffee but she doesn't mind the instant. I'll explain why this matters. About a couple of weeks ago I got a cafetiere, and pre-ground coffee (shame I know, but I didn't know anythin
  3. Gaggia classic coffee machine with Iberital burr grinder, tamper and milk jug. This machine has an upgraded (Rancillio Silvia) steam wand and upgraded coffee basket. This in my opinion is the best espresso setup available at this price point. The upgraded steam wand is a new addition to the machine and makes a massive difference to the steaming capabilities as well as making the machine more hygienic than the original Gaggia steam wand. Price is firm at £250 with the extras included at this price. Collection only from Hoylake, Wirral (CH47) Image of setup can be seen here: http
  4. This grinder has now been sold! Due to a recent upgrade, I am no longer using my trusty Challenge grinder (MC2?) so it is being offered for sale. Condition is very good with no scratches on the body and only light scuffs and bean staining on the hopper. I have used it pretty much every day for two or three double espresso’. I have recently replaced the dosing lever return spring. It also comes with a spare set of burrs that I purchased on a whim but have never used as the fitted burrs seems fine. looking for £85 plus postage but would prefer collection from Northampton (NN3)
  5. ... pretty sure it's an Iberital MC5 anyway, it has Cunil Brasil printed on the bottom. Reasonable condition, top of the doser is a bit faded. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0DqMan9vItEVU5Cc1d1aWlQZXM/view?usp=sharing
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. After many years of using a Gaggia Classic, I've decided to try my luck with the Silvia. Just wondering if I need to think about upgrading my grinder at the same time. I've been very happy with my Iberital Mc2 for many years now, and I've only recently put new blades in it. Anyone have any thoughts?
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. Anyone know if the iberital mc10 is any good? There's one for sale locally, and can't find out much about it, only the smaller mc2. Cheers
  12. 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 origina
  13. My MC2 is no longer grinding - without beans in the hopper it runs okay (though seems to be running slow) but as soon as I put any beans in it immediately jams and makes a buzzing noise. I’ve stripped the top end, burrs etc and cleaned everything up like new . Maybe it just needs new burrs but they don’t look too worn to me (snagged my thumbnail when I ran it across the burrs) and I'm 50/50 whehther to just move on and upgrade, or if it’s likely to be just the burrs Anybody had similar issue? ....and if I decide to just move on then what would I replace it with for say £300-350 (pref new
  14. 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 excellen
  15. 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.
  16. https://www.gumtree.com/p/coffee-machines/coffee-machine-and-grinder/1320064712 Slight leak apparently. Still sounds like a good deal.
  17. Nice starter set up for someone machine, grinder and accessories for £170 https://www.gumtree.com/p/coffee-machines/gaggia-classic-espresso-machine/1168144802
  18. 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...)
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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!
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. Iberital MC2 Grinder for sale £60 + postage (around £12) or collection. Iberital Grinder for sale. I bought it from a forum user last year and used it at work to make 2 coffees a day. I have now upgraded / downgraded to feldgrind so no longer need it. This grinder has some minor cracking to the hopper as can be seen in the photograph below, however this has no effect whatsoever on usage and the cracks are only superficial. I have never used the timer facility (single dosed) on the lower dial so cannot state whether this works or not. Looking for £60 + shippin
