  1. Hey guys, Thinking of upgrading from Gaggia Classic and would like your opinion on the below machines: Fracino Piccino - 550 euro although I think I could get it to 450 euro: https://www.adverts.ie/business-stock/fracino-piccino-coffee-machine/13852744 Little Gem Fracino - 500 euro and probably could also get it down to 450 euro: https://www.adverts.ie/other-business-office/little-gem-fracino-coffee-machine/14044323 Can't find too much info about both of them and how they compare to each other. Piccino is pretty much brand new and has been only on one exhibition; Little Gem has been used in the small coffee place. Appreciate your thoughts. Also, what would you be looking at when inspecting them before buying? Cheers.
  2. Hi all! I have just collected and descale my new Fracino little Gem machine. Cost me £220 for both (expected il need to do work at this price). But so far so good at what is a bargain price!! Good condition and man is the steam arm powerful! Group head shows a few drops every now and then when pulling a shot (new seal needed) easy to do? Have seen for £4. Made a couple coffees and flow rate is faster than expected, but have not dialled in grinder yet, an excited post purchase coffee had to be made which tasted good but a little bitter, finer grind needed I'm guessing? So my questions, what other maintenance should I do? What tamper suits this machine? Recomendations would be great? What maintenance for the grinder? Im no expert and the burs il have to check, worth replacing? Had for 6 years with minimal use, but I expect it could be worth it! Thanks for your help Ash
  3. Some of these seem to use what looks to be a large sweet jar for a water tank. This doesn't tie in with the parts list on Fracino's web site so might be a change or earlier model etc. Anyone know for sure or is it a mod that sometimes gets done? John -
  4. I won this on eBay, good price but even without picking it up, looks like a lot of work required on the casing. What model is it, was advertised as a little gem 1, or could it be a classic? Not sure of the differences as being old, google searches just throw up the newer machines. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Hi, new here - hope this isn't out of place I've been lurking for a while, and hunting around for the answer to this, to no avail. I've got a Fracino Little Gem, which seems to have quite a twitchy out of water alarm. It'll stop mid-shot, which is pretty annoying. When this happens, the water level still looks okay in the sight glass, so I'd've thought there would be enough water in the boiler to finish pouring the shot at least. So, my question is - is this expected behaviour?
