  1. ...just look at how beautiful it is!! https://www.gumtree.com/p/coffee-machines/ads/1237018326?EDID=XBJEZQG-0GJGUJ-LI5TR9-MGJEFQ-9WN9S6-v1&CELLID=10978654&utm_source=savedsearches&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily&utm_content=GpB_month
  2. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/La-Marzocco-Portafilter-Basket-17g-/121805082724?#shpCntId For Sale: La Marzocco Original 17g Filter Basket Available for a short period of time. Excellent basket. Toughened Stainless Steel for extra durability. Commercial Basket used in coffee shops.
  3. Two of. For most intents and purposes they are of comparable quality to the more expensive VST baskets. Used but in good condition, £10 posted each. IMAG2641 by wjheenan, on Flickr
  4. 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 itc
  5. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/172103881989?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2648&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&autorefresh=true
  6. This was mentioned in the GS/3 thread. Probably won't end up being a bargain: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/La-Marzocco-Strada-EP-2-Group-Coffee-Machine/172067458909 Anyway I'm posting more because I have a question regarding the listing. It says at the bottom of the description: "We are selling this machine as a business. Please be aware that VAT will be added ONTOP of the winning price." Is this correct? Seems a bit strange. Surely the VAT is their responsibility, if they are paying it back via some kind of margin scheme that doesn't mean they can charge anything on top of the sell
  7. Linea legs, tamper and promo sign. I've also a merchandising book not pictured that I'll include. £150 shipped to the usual standard rate addresses.
  8. Not seen much talk about the Linea mini on this forum! Any owners around? I just wanted to know if it has programmable shot timers like the full size classic Linea for single and double shots, or is it full manual? Thanks
  9. 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
  10. Has anyone got any experience with the non Strada i.e. non certified LM basket? They're over half the price of the VST from here coffeehit (http://coffeehit.co.uk/portafilter-parts/la-marzocco-basket-17g) which is looking very appealing but if they're no good I'd rather just get the VSTs. Also as a tag on question I've currently got a ridged basket in my portafilter, is there anything I have to do to fit a ridgeless?
  11. Saw this on the instagram linked in the particle distribution thread, very reminiscent of KVDW design. http://sprudge.com/la-curva-la-marzoccos-new-concept-lever-espresso-machine-88515.html
  12. http://www.home-barista.com/espresso-machines/la-marzocco-strada-mini-coming-t36826.html#p417515 Another revolutionary espresso machine awaits you! For the very first time, the unmistakable Strada EP is down sized to a 1-group version to fit any coffee environment. This single group model adds a water reservoir, making plumb-in optional, as well as an internal volumetric pump to the EP's distinctive features - its iconic silhouette, dedicated gear pumps and pressure profiling ... just the right combination for a perfect shot. [ATTACH=CONFIG]15744[/ATTACH] Move over GS3!
  13. 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
  14. New stuff will come thick and fast from the SCAA 2015 Article here ... http://sprudge.com/la-marzocco-launches-linea-pb-with-auto-brew-ratio-espresso-technology-74845.html
  15. 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!

  17. I've just got back from a week in Cornwall and thought I'd write a bit about the few coffee places I visited... Great coffee to be had at the Hub (La Marzocco machine and Origin beans) and Mt Zion, both in St Ives. The chap at Mt Zion (didn't catch his name) was very passionate and knowledgeable. He was using some Square Mile and Yallah beans through Mahlkonig EK43 and ANFIM, with a Simonelli machine. Full of conversation about all things coffee related and made plenty of suggestions about books, beans, grinders etc. I also visited Origin's Brewhouse where TJ lined up a couple of d
  18. 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
  19. This basket came with my MBK Heft 585 tamper. I have switched over to VST baskets, so with those plus the Sage OEM baskets, I just have too many baskets. It is in good condition but as it is ridged there are some scrape marks on the sides of the basket. Purely cosmetic. If if anyone would like this basket it's yours for free. I will post it 2nd class Royal Mail. Whoever takes this, I would appreciate it if you would make a donation towards the forum running costs but that is not a requirement only a request. Can I ask that established members who all ready have lots of kit pl
  20. Hi all I'm going back and forth between leaving levers behind and getting a GS3, and staying in the club and upgrading the Strega to the current Londinium 1. Would any of you London-based Londinium owners be interested in offering me a quick look/play with your machine? I'll supply the coffee, obvs. Promise I'm well behaved and reasonably house trained.... Likewise, if you're reading this and have a GS3, I'd be very keen to have a play on that too! Thanks all LF ps away with work for a couple of weeks, but pretty much free thereafter for a bit
  21. Hi - I am thinking of selling my 3 year old LM GS3 AV. Any idea what it would be worth second hand? It is in very good condition, having been used for home use only. They appear to sell for £5,300 these days when brand new in the UK. Thanks.
  22. Hi All, I've been looking at getting a GS3 during my searching i've come across this site selling Standard and customised LM machines. They have got a Strada EP single group listed on there as well for £7500. I was wondering if anyone on here has ordered anything from the site or has any input as to whether this is legit or not as its a lot of money to lay out if not. Thanks in advance. https://alphazero.coffee/shop/la-marzocco-strada-ep/
  23. 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
  24. 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?
  25. I know there was a thread and poll recently asking if we wanted a designated La Marzocco sub-forum but I can’t find that thread now and I still don’t see a LM sub-forum? What was the conclusion? I’ve always been surprised that there isn’t one here tbf. Tony
