  1. There seems to be a lot of love for the Londinium R on here! Nothing to do with Upgraditis or anything like that (!!!), but I'd be really interested to hear from a few of you LR owners how you like your machines. How does it compare with what you had before, in usability and more importantly the taste of coffee in your cup? Did you feel the need to upgrade your grinder? Any comments very gratefully received. Thanks in advance.
  2. Hey folks, Am thinking between getting a Gaggia Classic and install PID on it, or getting a La Pavoni and just work with what a beauty it already is. Anybody here with experience with both? I have heard that the La Pavoni compared to a Gaggia without PID would be better, but what about with the PID? I am just planning to make 1-3(usually 2) drinks at a time, milk based. Anybody got any insight to help me on this? Would appreciate any advice, thanks!
  3. Hello! I have a question. I have a Compak E8 grinder and a Fracino Cherub. The set up is great but I've had my Cherub for about 6 years now and want to try a lever machine. I'd love a londinium but my budget is about £1500 so it's unrealistic. I've heard of the new mini londinium but I need milk steaming. So... I've found a Bezerra Strega for around my budget. Does anyone have any experience with this or have any other sugestions. I've also looked into Fracino machines which are almost in budget and fracino make the londiniums I think? Does anyone have any sugestions.
  4. Due to file size restrictions this will be done over multiple posts so bear with me! After 13 months of waiting after placing my initial order, my Bosco Sorrento finally arrived. As I partially type this out it is currently warming up for the first time without issue besides a slight leak from the manual water knob (if anyone has a suggestion on how to fix that please tell me!). A quick recall of how I ended up here today. I lived in Italy for just over five years, where I got into espresso, and due to that I was able to obtain espresso machines for prices that far underc
  5. Now that my first project machine works again I can post about it here! It was a 10 month process but the behemoth works again. I am on the hunt for a new table/cabinent as the current one is a little sketchy for holding so much weight. What started out as a €175 purchase grew into a little more than that in parts and tools to complete the task ? The springs are very similar to my Astoria/CMA group in my Bosco so I did not really need to adjust the grind setting much at all. Here is an original seller's pic for comparison.
  6. I don't think this has been posted on the forum… appeared in Daily Coffee News. We have the Push, and now the Pull. Another lever machine to add to the stable. Not sure about the look but sure about the price. http://dailycoffeenews.com/2016/09/07/beauty-consistency-longevity-pull-luxury-espresso-builds-100-year-machines/
  7. Hi folks, I'm new to the forum. My current setup is a gaggia classic with a eureka mignon grinder. My taste in coffee is gravitating more towards espresso than milk based drinks. I've been lusting after a Giotto rocket for a while and have been close to pushing the button. But reading a few posts on here about lever machines and having a read of the londinium blog makes me think I should consider a lever machine. The simplicity and retro appeal of these machines (not to mention the espresso) really appeals. Im interested in advice and also people's experiences of moving

  9. Hello all. Just introducing myself, Ben, with an interest in coffee for my own consumption. Debating about going to a Lever machine for the sheer fascination of the actions required. Cheers.
  10. Hi Guys, I am about to embark on a re-build so thought i had better join the community! I have an old La Cimbali lever machine, the same as this...http://yemanha.de/Cimbali/ that whilst in pieces at the moment will be a great machine with some work..... well al lot of work! Going to buy a well loved espresso machine with a PID in the interim, but mainly joining for the great advice. Photos to follow when i can get into my storage Andrew(inuk)
  11. Hi all, been a while since we posted some refurb work we've done, Recently got a 2 Group MyWay Lever Machine in for a Refurb and here is a link to the progress pics... https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.531049936913082.123340.144400048911408&type=1 The ammount of scale removed from this machine was surprising but after some elbow grease we have revived this lovely machine back to its former glory...
  12. So I have managed to get to the stage of getting a decent shot out of my Gaggia Cubika. It is a little lacking when it comes to maintaining shot temp when brewing but this I could get over. The big thing for me is that I really like my latte/cappuchino and the steam wand takes an age to heat the milk, and if i want to heat more that one mugs worth I have to stop it half way through, refill the machine with water and wait for it to come to pressure. Its incredibly tedious. So I am going to end up buying a better machine. What I am wondering is if my problem is inherent to any small coffe
  13. From recommendations on this site and Home Barista amongst others I got interested in Londinium Espresso for their beans and also because I found out that Reiss ("Mr Londinium") is a lever machine fan and - no less important - has now become the UK distributor for Olympia Cremina lever machines (as well as their grinder and Maximatic heat exchanger pump machine). Having been very impressed with Londinium's roasting, which is not only nice and light - letting more of the character of the bean and where it's grown to come through - but also very consistent, I agreed to have a demo of the Cr

  15. I've been without a decent coffee for too long and think I've found a source for double baskets for the Briel, Magimix seem to be using the same design or Briel are making them and they are then being re-labled.....but can't find proof before wasting money.....its the last resort before the new machine hunt begins .......any ideas?
  16. Hey all here's my set up: Astoria 3 Group lever machine Piaggio Ape van folding table menu board cool boxes Unfortunately there is no grinder on board at the mo which sucks as I soooooo want one. I need to put in a conversion kit for electric and maybe swap the 3 group for a 2 for more space.
  17. *Now £650 including additional Barista kit mentioned below* Soll had the Strega from new purchased from Bella Barista on the 3rd of January 2014 it was first used at his home until my purchase mid this year and was producing 1/2 coffees per day with Soll. He used it with Ashbeck mineral water, never tap water and I've used it with Waitrose essential or volvic (or a mix). Included in the sale will be 1 naked portafilter holder, 1 double spout portafilter holder and the Bezzera stock baskets it came with. Also has the upgraded IMS shower screen which was purchased last year during the forum
  18. Micro Casa Leva S1C is an espresso machine with lever offered by Elektra for several decades. I am selling my trusted Elektra after owning it for about two years. This beautiful lever machine produces amazing layered espressos and the steam wand is second to none. It has been just serviced by Ferrari espresso, the authorized dealer for Elektra in the UK, who have confirmed that the machine is in fine condition. Comes with portafilter, original box, and certificate. Please note that the grinder in the pictures is not included. I am selling this at a 50% discount (currently cheap
  19. I'm thinking about parting with my espresso machine-away from home since it doesn't get much use. Its a Gaggia Factory which is basically a rebadged La Pavoni Europiccola. I bought it from Lookseehear in September in excellent condition and since then it hasn't had much use but I've kept it clean and working perfectly. Lookseehear added a pressure gauge and temperature stickers on the group which still work and are very useful for determining when to pull a shot. It comes with a naked portafilter only. It is quite a tricky machine to use but I have produced some fantastic shots fro
