  1. Man this coffee scene is a joke... I'm on my 4th machine, 3rd grinder so far this year!! Loving it. So I currently use a polished Major, which I love. I think it looks awesome, and obviously it performs well. But I single dose, once maybe twice a day. So an on demand grinder I guess would be better for my needs, but my pockets are not as deep as I wished they were, so my choice would be limited. Now the other day I picked up a new (to me) coffee machine, La Spaziale S1, and with it came an Astro 12 OD grinder. Both have had minimal use but are around 4 years old. I will ob
  2. Which machine would yous say is the best commercial machine Astoria Sanremo La Spaziale La Marzocco Nuova Simonelli
  3. I'm relatively tempted by this for myself, just to have a play on then move on in a few months What do people think? I think it has 75mm flat burrs. @Rhys interim grinder? https://www.gumtree.com/p/coffee-machines/coffee-grinder-la-spaziale-12-astro-grind-on-demand/1274211369
  4. Anyone had experience of the 1 group La Spaziale machines such as the Mini Vivaldi 2 or Dream T? I did a barista course some time ago using their larger 3/4 group models. Just wondered if anyone has used the smaller double boiler machines?
  5. Hi Folks Can anyone explain to me how the wiring in this diagram actually works. I understand the connections at the element part can be wired with different options for 3 phase or single,but there are 5 wires out the for the connection to the main supply. Black , Brown and grey for the phases,blue for the neutral and an earth. If it was to be wired single phase,what would be the arrangement to a 30amp switch? ( i Have no intention of doing this, I'm just trying to understand the diagram )
  6. Will only put a brief review now and come back later and upload some footage etc. Got sick of my Sage Barista Express as had nothing but issues with it and returned after 18 months and bought the La Spaz Vivaldi II. It was a lot more money but god can you tell the difference, this machine is glorious. There is nothing about it I do not like. Look at the difference in size between the machines.
  7. see a few for sale second hand. can someone give me some tips on what to look out for on these machines, common faults easy to service ect as there doesn't seem to be much info on them. thank you
  8. Anyone know where I can get a 0.9mm steam tip for my La Spaz? I can only find US suppliers that want £40+ for shipping!
  9. Hi, Not sure if this is one for this forum, but I was wondering if anyone knew if the Rocket steam wand tips for the la spaziale mini vivaldi, and was hoping someone might know as they seem quite similar? Cheers.

  11. Does anyone know anything about these machines? Particularly a ball park value for one - used ex-restaurant kit. It is 2 group and fairly big..... but quite "retro-chic"..... I might be able to get my hands on one (subject to the ball park figure above*) * ie It might be a steal.....
  12. Hi all, I have been on the look out for a second hand Vivaldi S1 II (not mini) for 4 months now. They are not common in our country so I'm forced to shop via Ebay and other internet sites. Closest that I came was a bid from Ebay UK but that was halted by seller due to shipping complications. Yesteday I have found a second hand S5 EK for 1.175GBP and seller is prepared to ship. Don't mind the machine being larger, plenty of space available in the kitchen, can also plumb it. My two questions are: How does a Vivaldi compare to an S5? Does this look like an ok deal? L
  13. Hi, I'm new to coffee forums and need some advice. Anyone had any dealings with www.beanmachines.co.uk? Currently looking at getting a 2 group traditional coffee machine. Ideally a Sanremo or La Spaziale - open to suggestions though. Had a pretty decent quote from them and they seem like knowledgeable guys. Anyone dealt with them before and can shed any light?
  14. I found one of these grinders near me 2nd hand for about £350 barely used and I can't find much information online about it. Seems to have 75mm burrs and a low RPM which seems great. The lack of information worries me though! Anyone know about them? Better recommendations?
  15. Hi everyone. What a great source of information! So my current gear is a Gaggia Classic (like a lot of you on here) and I've got an Ascado i-mini grinder. I'm always a sucker for a bargain so generally buy everything 2nd hand and as cheap as possible. Gaggia I bought for £30 with a blocked solenoid valve and took it all apart to find out what the problem was and the i-mini I found on gumtree for £80. Really trying to get my coffee closer to that of the coffee shops I spend too much time in. Coffee is freshly roasted and stored in a vaccum jar and put into the grinder 18g at a time. Pul
  16. My Vivaldi II arrived today, a week ahead of schedule, well pleased with that. Not so pleased with the fact the accessories are missing, no portafilter, basket, tamper etc. Screwing!
  17. I would like to post what I consider useful information, on a very informative website, and have found I cannot respond to a thread as I need to have posted 5 previous messages. Well, I will submit this, here and see what happens, as I would like it posted on the corresponding thread. Hi Everyone, I have taken the plunge and ordered La Spaz Mini Vivaldi from GioEspresso, after a trial of the La Spaz machines elsewhere. It took a while to arrive at the final decision as it is difficult to get information on retailers, hence the post, to inform other 'potential' purchasers. I will k
  18. Arrggghhhhh!! Just got back to find a card in the door from TNT, saying "sorry we missed you" and that my delivery from La Spaziale UK would now be re-delivered on Monday
  19. After missing the delivery man last Friday, and enduring what seemed an interminable wait over the weekend, 'The Spaz' finally arrived on Monday morning. It even arrived on it's own mini-pallet! Got it all unpacked and set up, but as it had been in a cold, damp, Warehouse all weekend, I left it for 24 hours for all the newly-formed condensation to disappear and dry out. At this point I still didn't have the Grinder, so no real hardship there. The grinder still hadn't turned up on Tuesday, so I couldn't make any Coffee, but spent some time getting to know the machine, and progra
  20. Roaster Experience Days are worthwhile events to visit. Yesterday Steve Leighton (HasBean) opened up his roastery to 30+ people for a day of coffee drinking, socialising and coffee education. This included the first live recording of In My Mug, his informative and passionate Video Podcast. The 30+ people that attended came from all walks of life and it was refreshing to get a completely different viewpoint about peoples expectations of what a coffee should be and what it represents to them. Colin Harmon (2009 Irish Barista Champion) was a surprise guest and had been flown
  21. Evening All, I eventually purchased my new equipment a couple of weeks ago which comprises of the following: La Spaziale Mini Vivaldi II This was sent direct from the company and I was only expecting the mark I version, but to receive the mark II was a really nice surprise (I didn't even think the mark II was available in this country). It has really good quality construction and parts and I really couldn't be happier with this so far. The 4 hole tip Milk Steamer really is something else (I'm worried the machine will take off). Mazzer Mini Timer I can certainly see why the d
  22. Gaggia baby seems to be picky and very sensitive to evenness of the puck. I have been pouring grounds on the same spot until the basket is full and there are no problems on other machines. However, it causes channelling and deadspots on my gaggia baby. So, if you're using Gaggia baby ,perhaps other models too, and get persistent channelling and uneven extraction, it's time to examine your distribution method. The effect of poor tamping is not fatal if the error is not so bad.
  23. Ok I want one for my machine and have seen that LA SPAZIALE do a 53mm one, and the basket in my Briel is 53mm will it fit or is there an alternative??
  24. Hello All, I'm in the market for a new machine and grinder with a £1500/£300 maximum budget respectively. Following a few weeks research, the following machines have caught the eye. La Spaziale Vivaldi Mini Mk 1 Giotto Premium Plus The machine will be used for approximately 4-6 coffees per day (home use), mainly for Cappuccino and Espresso, so a top quality Milk Steamer is of great importance. Could I please ask for your expert opinion on whether these machines are a good choice, and also are there any others I really should be considering within my budget? On t
  25. I have the above for sale. It is made by La Spaziale so the crome plating covers the whole PF. Not like the retro-cut versions with exposed bronze. It is new and has never seen coffee or water. Purchased for a machine I didn't end up buying. Due to a re-stocking fee for returns I'm offering it up here before I return it. I payed £54 inc vat, so I'm after £40 + postage. Collection welcome.
