  2. 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.
  3. Hey guys I'm about to open a patisserie and I'm looking to buy a La Marzocco Linea PB single Phase model. 2 or 3 group depends on price, also looking for ABR model but will consider normal model. also no older than 2018 production. Basically a year old at most, but again will consider anything depends on price. If anyone know anyone who will sell or about to sell, please let me know.
  4. Today I embarked on a coffee crawl around London with my wife as well as Chris Weaver and Ash Porter, to try a number of new establishments and show them what London has to offer. Our itinerary was; Milk Bar (Bateman Street) Fernandez & Wells (Beak Street) Kaffeine (Great Titchfield Street) Lantana (Charlotte Place) Beas of Bloomsbury (Theobald Street) First up was Milk Bar, a regular haunt and a chance to grab brunch (their scrambled eggs and bacon was divine). The home made baked beans looked appetising too... Milk Bar uses Squaremile coffee, ground with a Mazzer and extracted from a La Marzocco FB80 (in black) Todays coffee (flat whites all round) was expertly crafted by Matt and served with a smile Next we moved onto Fernandez & Wells in Beak Street (they have 2 coffee locations within a few minutes walk of each other). St Anne's court looked to be undergoing a refurb. The beans are sourced from Monmouth and the team uses a Mazzer / Synesso combination to create their drinks. Delicate and simple is how I would describe this cafe. Sparse walls with no music are drowned out by the quality of the food (mouthwatering...) As we'd just had breakfast we settled for cookies (the Peanut Butter cookies got the thumbs up) On a quest to see the city and try more coffee we headed to Kaffeine, a recently opened cafe, just north of Oxford Street. Using an Anfim / Synesso combination we were served a great round of coffee, sourced from Squaremile. We were lucky enough to have the current UK Latte Art Champion, John Gordon, prepare our coffee as he is guest appearing this week. The food looked so inviting at Kaffeine, nicely laid out, and with plenty of space and seating we felt right at home. The service was top notch and a real credit to Peter and his team. Lots of smiley faces inside too. This new cafe is a 'must visit' for any coffee crawl around London. Lantana was on our list of places to visit so after finishing our drinks at Kaffeine we headed around the corner to Charlotte Place. Lantana was not at all what we expected, surpassing our expectations entirely. A table was prepared for us and we enjoyed our 4th coffee of the day. Lantana uses Monmouth beans, a Mazzer grinder and La Marzocco linea. Their bespoke printed takeaway cups are works of art in themselves. With an hour or so to kill before Chris and Ash needed to catch their train we headed to Beas of Bloomsbury for a cupcake and a wind down. No caffeine this time (although their coffee is top notch), we settled for something refreshing and cool and of course a cupcake. You just have to visit to see how beautiful their window display and cake stands are, stacked full of yummy delights. The lemon semolina cookies are just heaven (I had 2). All in all a great day out, good company, good coffee and great hospitality everywhere we went.
  5. We are a European Style Cafe serving a wide range of freshly made delectable treats including panini, soups, salads, homemade gelato, local beers and wines , and of course a wide range of teas and espresso drinks hand crafted from our trained baristas on our trusty La Marzocco. Free Wifi and outdoor patio seating (Dog friendly!) More...
  6. We are looking for a service guide or book so we can learn to maintain our own machines. If there are any, where can we get them.
  7. I know La Marzocco have done a few of these over the last year, anyone been to one? I have RSVPd for the Brighton event on Wednesday, which is held at Small Batch Coffee in the Seven Dials area. Anyone from the forums attending? Thought it might be the perfect place to bust out my new coffee forums t shirt! Sorry for the delay in posting this i keep on getting scuppered by not adding tags! I click submit and then close down the tab without realising it never posted! doh!
  8. I have listed a few items on eBay if anyone is interested from here I am sure I can sort something out http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/La-Pavoni-Professional-PL-16-Cups-Espresso-Machine-/191753069641?nav=SELLING_ACTIVE

  11. https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/allpressespressouk/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from= More will be uploaded soon, just getting rid of old stock that's never been used and never will! We have a 3G La Marzocco Strada MP for sale too. 2012 model. Not used for a long time and recently fully de scaled and serviced by our mates at Clockwork Coffee who did a great job at fixing her up. Rather sell on here than ebay to avoid fees. We also have sprare touch pads and gear pumps available, either with the machine, or separately. The machine and all parts are in our work shop at Allpress Espresso, Dalson, London Sensible offers!
  12. I have decided to sell my GS3 MP. It is a 2018 model purchased brand new in May 2018 through origin coffee roasters. The machine has been well looked after and is in the sort of condition you would expect from a 8 month old machine and has warranty until may 2019. The machine has only had light home use and has probably averaged around 2 shots per day. I also live in a soft water area and have always used it plumbed in with a good filter. feel free to view the machine before purchasing. Many thanks.

    Used La Marzocco GS3 AV

    For sale: £3,500. In perfect working order. It was bought by me brand new 3 years ago and it has been used at home making, on average, 10 drinks per week. My home water is run through a softener. It comes with three official La Marzocco portafilters (one naked, one single spout and one double spout) together with an assortment of original baskets that were included when I bought it. It also comes with the original manual. I have used it plumbed in for the past few months but it also comes with the original water tank (note there is a small crack on the top of the water tank but this does not impair performance and is completely hidden from view during use). It comes with the original water hose (the input for plumbing it in) but you will need to source your own plastic drainage pipe. Collection only near Brentwood in Essex. Thanks for looking.
  14. Hi Everyone! I am new to CFUK and wanted to introduce myself. My wife and I got into coffee around the time we got married in 2010. Before that, I was not that much into tea or coffee. However, I did a small sample roast to try a wedding gift of drip coffee maker. I really enjoyed that coffee and we found ourselves with a small bean to cup DeLonghi. Mochas and lattes were good with it. I continued roasting coffee beans on Sundays and it became a 'thing'. A ritual. Since then I have gone from enjoying Americanos and Cappuccinos to becoming a macchiato and espresso fan. This trend can be noted with my wife as well where she has gone from very milky Lattes (in 250ml grande cups) to extremely tight (130ml) cappuccinos. There even appears to be some explorations of macchiatos now. I used a Gaggia Deco for a while and then moved to La Marzocco and I still use the MD64 pro grinder that came with it. I still find it competes well with robur in sweetness. I use robur when I need more acidity and clarity in taste. Last 12 months have been a bit dull in our household due to some personal matters, and I have been dormant in roasting and being active in the coffee tasting hobby. I have literally not had a hobby for a long time. I am keen to pick myself up and continue to use my coffee tasting hobby to keep myself keen on life in general and motivated! Someday I hope to try pulling on somebody's lever machine as I have started to appreciate the more classic or traditional 35ml espresso more than any other type of coffee. Thanks for reading. And thanks for letting me join this group. Regards, Dee.
  15. If anyone sees one for sale and they're not after it themselves please feel free to drop me a message. Thanks.
  16. Linea 2 GRPs are often for sale at reasonable prices second hand; I'm guessing the electric / space requirements make them a no go for home operation?
  17. Hey, I have a LM with external pump and the relevant wires and was just looking for what I need to plug into where... So the machine plugs into the mains, and from the machine there's a cable that runs out from it that I assumes powers the pump. I also have two metal wrapped hoses, that I assume at least one goes into the pump (not sure if the other also goes into the pump or into the main water plumbing?). Also somewhere in this setup must be the filter (currently do not own, but will). I was obviously planning on having the machine professionally installed, but I'm getting itchy fingers and wouldn't mind running it at home for a little bit to play around on and just can't quite get to grips on the 'circuit' of what goes into what. Any explanation or diagrams would be awesome. Thanks

  19. Hi All, I am looking at trying to value some equipment for a potential purchase and was wondering if anyone could tell me what a reasonable price would be for a used La Marzocco FB80 (2 group) and an Anfim super caimano grinder? Also whats everyones thoughts on the 2 bits of kit? Thanks
  20. Is this the case? We've been told by almost everyone that La Marzocco machines are the best machines? Is this true? We need a great machine for heavy use 7 days a week. What are your recommendations? What are your grinder recommendations too?
  21. Hey Guys, Just put some Santos grinder up for sale on eBay. I also have a La Marzocco swift for sale. I've listed it as used as it's a 2011 version but it's never been used! I also have some other items useful for commercial operations if you're interested. http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/ricki/m.html
  22. Hi I have recently switched from the La Spaz to the GS3. i think i now have a dosing and distribution issue. I am trying to grind straight into the portafilter and, as you know, you get the classic volcano. The issue is that i try to 'fill' the volcano but this is quite difficult to do reliably. I either have to bang the portafilter to try and get the hole filled or else i try and use my finger but the level of the coffee is below the top of the basket so this is not very easy and leads to poor results. The outcome is that i get a lot of duff shots with massive channelling and (with a naked portafilter) are clearly not right. To try and compensate for this problem i have tried upping the dose to 20 gr (18 is my standard) and this is successful. When i do this there is now plenty of coffee in the basket and i can use the usual north, south, east, west technique to fill the hole and get a flat puck. However, i really don't want to be dosing 20r for each shot and wanted to know: 1. shall i buy a new basket...in which case the issue is what size. i was thinking i could get a strada 14r basket and then dose 18 gr and hopefully this would be ok. 2. Should i get a VST basket or are the La Marzocco baskets already VST... i think this is the case from my reading? 2. Or should i just grind into a cup and then get some sort of dosing ring etc to make sure the grinds a nicely distributed. This seems like a poor option as the whole point of the M3 is that it is meant to give great distribution when you grind straight into the portafilter. It would also add in extra steps and fiddling Finally, as you know we did have an informal versalab thread 'what weights 38lb and can fit it your hand luggage'. This has now been closed by i have contacted Glenn who suggested i start a new thread for this enquiry and he would investigate what happened with the previous post. Any advice gratefully received thanks
  23. Hi, has anyone got any experience with La Marzocco coffee machines? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. thanks, Beatrisa
  24. Kaffismiðjan is a cozy café in down town Reykjavík, the capital of Iceland. Founded in 2008, but has a reputation like it´s been around for a while. Serves only single origin espressos and has a La marzocco beauty two group GB5, a Dalla Corte Evolution and two Mazzer grinders. You´ve got top baristas serving you one of the best coffee you can buy in Iceland and it´s a plus that they are all good looking. In the shop they have a pink roaster, only one in the world! And they also have a coffee sch… More...
  25. I have had my LMLM for a year now and ever since day one been annoyed by the fact that the steam and water knobs tends to stick when tightened up in the closed position. They are basically designed like a nut on a bolt. So if you want to do a quick steam-off by turning the knob clockwise it will eventually keep turning until the end of the thread - and tighten up against the "bolt head". So I wanted to get rid of this daily annoyance using an otherwise super cool and certainly well designed machine! I solved the problem by inserting a home made two turn helical coil in the knob thread. Make sure you clean off all grease off of all parts. Then carefully dremel away the run-out of the thread on the counterpart on the valve. See pictures below. Then adjust the placement of the coil so that it will block further rotation JUST after the valve closes but before hitting the end of the thread. Then fix the coil in the thread with low viscosity superglue or thread lock or whatever. And before reassembling the parts remember to grease all parts again to ensure propper function. I am really happy with this fix as it is relatively simple to perform and super robust - this is the way it should have been designed 🙂 Video clip of before and after
