  1. For sale is my Quick Mill Anita. Comes with double shot portafilter (no single unfortunately). Used with bottled water only, in great condition apart from the front right leg is a little bent due to transportation. Really only drink filter these days and I'm moving house so I guess we could use the funds for something a little more appropriate... Like a new bed... or a chair... Sigh. Has been a great machine - really good at bouncing back after multiple drinks, lots of headroom with the steam and can pull shots whilst steaming without issue. Looking at collection only from Newcastle as my experience with posting coffee machines has never been positive. Can deliver within a suitable radius for a fee i.e. 50 miles being the max, or meet at a halfway point if the price is right. On eBay for £650, but happy to take £550 cash to people on here. Any questions, don't hesitate to ask and I'll do my best. Jonny --phone number removed--
  2. Hi there, just for the fun of it - here‘s my office unit. Lately did a little service, it‘s such a neat and fun piece to work on. Very accessible despite its compact footprint. If anyone has questions about the 0835 (or other Quickmill-specific groups) just let me know...!
  3. ...so the deep end it is. Eureka Mignon Mk2 with a Quick Mill Verona -- all pre-loved, but new to me! I've yet to pull a good shot (and I'm down ~400g coffee already), but I'm sure I'll get there.
  4. Sadly, I am selling my very little used and much loved Verona dual boiler coffee machine. I purchased the machine new from Bella Barista in May 2014. I still have the original BB receipt for £1899.00. Bella Barista are currently selling the Verona for £2099 I moved on to a canal boat 2 years ago and the machine has had almost zero use since as it is too much hassle running up my 4kw diesel generator for 20 minutes or so just to make a coffee. Prior to my move onto the water, the machine would only have been used once a day for the morning Americano and Latte. The machine has only ever been fed with Ashbeck. As can be seen from the photos, the machine is in pristine condition and is in perfect working order. The machine comes with instruction manual, all the original parts and accessories, including the kit for plumbing it into the water mains. I am asking £1200 for the machine and for the buyer to collect it in person (it is very heavy) from my boat which is generally in the North London area around Uxbridge. Any questions, please feel free to ask and I will be happy to answer them.
  5. Hello So I have refurbished K6 that needs a serious partner. Initially my plan as an espresso drinker was to get a QM Carola (preferably s/h but i can wait to accumulate more funds to get it new) and get some kind of milk frother such as the Jura for any requested cowJuice based drinks (the horror!) But I've since decided that learning the process of manipulating milk might be fun and so the Silvano came into the picture and then looking more into that has opened up to all sorts of boilers and internal configurations. Main question: is the K6 good enough to grind for this level of espresso machine (i think the K6 are around £450 new) I'd like a E61 group preferably in brass for sturdiness, heat retention and all round accessory buying life made easier. PID of some sort would be nice. I'm guessing all machines around the £500-8a00 come with a 3 way solenoid, Some sort of pre-infusion. HX is OK as I think 2 boilers is a bit excessive for now and counter space requirements. Well designed* Thermoblock for steam is fine. That's all I can think of now but I'm sure you'll remind me of other wish-list/necessities Really look forward to hearing your advice.. Thanks *no contact with aluminium
  6. Hi All, I have a problem with my three-year-old Quick Mill Verona insofar as the rotary pump has stalled/seized. I can hear it electrically buzzing, but there is no rotation. I'm pretty sure it's not an electrical fault but excessive scale build-up within the pump head as it is well overdue for a descale. But this creates a Catch-22 situation. I can't flush descaler through the machine if the pump won't run, so how do I get round the problem? I know I should have descaled sooner, so it's my fault it has happened... any advice gratefully received. Thanks in anticipation. In all other respects, the Verona is still superb. Tony
  7. Following an impulsive upgrade, I now have rather rare sprung lever in need of a new loving home…. Judging by this thread….https://coffeeforums.co.uk/topic/39706-latest-member-of-quotthe-lever-clubquot-qm-veloce-after-24-hours/...I bought from Bella Barista in early 2018. This machine has been superb. It has taught me a huge amount and has been a joy to use. The Veloce has been a completely reliable and very low maintenance machine. No backflushing or real cleaning needed, just a piston grease every 6 months or so (5 minute job). This is a tank-fed machine with the 58mm Condor group (I understand the same as the Londinium machines). Performance in the cup is widely reviewed as being equal to the L1 (plenty of far more knowledgeable forum members have written reams in comparing the L1 to the Veloce). With a large 1.8 litre service boiler this is a very temperature stable thermosiphon machine - it will sit ticking over all day and maintain a consistent temperature. No need for a cooling flush like a HX machine: just load the PF and go. Heats up quickly - 30 mins and you are ready to go, or sooner if you flush. Nice and responsive toggles on the hot water and steam wand. Excellent steaming capability and equipped with a long no-burn wand, with great manipulation making steaming a breeze. Really quiet in use - the pump only fires up sporadically during each shot. I have fitted the Cafelat silicone piston seals and group gasket gasket. I regreased and inspected last month and will regrease for sale. Sale includes single-spout PF, single and double unbranded baskets, spare group gasket (non Cafelat) and upgraded 35 um shower screen. I am looking for £1,100 collected from Bristol, or can meet a short distance along the M5 / M4 if required. Unfortunately I will not post this machine. Any questions, please ask! Rob
  8. For sale my Quickmill 820 bought from Bella Barista a couple of years ago. Only used as a second machine and for decaf coffee pods. Complete with 2 portafilters one bottomless with pod adapter Any questions please ask. Pickup only Lancashire
  9. hey there this my first real post i have a Gaggia Classic and find it inconsistent i don't use milk much not sure if that's 'cos the wait the only Quick Mill close to my 'upgrade' range is the 820 but is it an upgrade? it is nice and compact and looks like my kitchen.... i have seen a few older machines i am technically proficient if needs be and would actually prefer older used kit are parts available? are they actually reliable/consistent? thanks for looking dave
  10. I might do without the machine for a bit and just use v60 with a coarse grind, it depends how I do on budget. If you had to buy new and needed everything except kettle, v60, and coffee, what would you get instead?
  11. Hi all, Help needed to get my posting numbers up to be able to view the for sale section! Current set up is Rancillo Rocky and Gaggia Classic, but now looking to upgrade the Classic. Was planning to buy a new Fracino Piccino, but the dual boiler is not really relevant as I always black coffee and only steam milk for the occasional guest Wife won't let me stretch to a Fraccino Cherub this time, so after reduced my expectations to a Quick Mill Carola, I have dropped the budget to £500 for a new Quick Mill Silvano (tickling my fancy due to the PID). I'd like to see what used bargains the good people of this forum are selling. Sooo, that's my thinking.........nice weather here in Bristol...!!
  12. Due to a recent attack of upgraditis, I am offering for sale my lovely Quick Mil Anita espresso machine. This is the machine that has really got me 'into' coffee and it is a very easy one to use and produce a decent drink with. It is just over 18months old and is in perfect working order, only having been used at my home - approx. 2-4 cups a day about 5 times a week. No dings or scratches anywhere, just some light signs of use. Only ever used filtered water with it and it has been regularly cleaned/back-flushed. The cheapest I can find it on-line at the moment is at Coffee Italia where it is reduced from £1300 down to £1050 although my machine has the better quality valve handles and the no-burn steam/water wands than the one shown on their site. My machine also has a IMS water screen fitted, which I will leave on as well as including the original. It will also come with the portafilters etc as shown. I am asking £600 collection (Southport) which I think is a fair price given its age and 'as new' condition (but I'm sure someone will tell me otherwise if its not) You are more than welcome to 'try before you buy' if you are able to get over to Southport, or I may be able to meet somewhere in the North West if that made it a bit easier for you. Also willing to post at buyers cost and it would be very securely wrapped and only sent if fully insured. It is a substantial machine however, due to its stainless steel construction for the frame and all the panels, and it weighs around 17kg so by the time it has been packed and double-boxed it is likely to weigh in the region of 25kg. The Anita is not a dual boiler machine but it does have a heat exchanger system so you can extract and steam at the same time if you want to and this feature works really well. I can also take more photos if there's anything specific you want to see. It has its own water tank and does not need plumbing-in. I do not have the original receipt, as it was a gift, but there is a factory 'inspection date' certificate included with the paperwork which confirms its age as described. Thanks Graham
  13. Collected my QM Verona and Olympus 75E yesterday from BB. Well impressed. Going through the inevitable coffee wasting stage now playing with grinder fineness,weights, times etc. Really enjoying it and what flavour!!! One thing I have trouble with is the steam wand. It seems incredibly loose in the ball and socket joint. I have a spinal cord problem which can cause my hands to shake and it would make it so much easier to froth milk accurately if I could rest the top edge of the jug against the shaft of the wand as I move it up or down. Is there any way to tighten this up a wee bit so it doesn't move so freely? Also, in order to open the steam valve fully, it needs to be turned for 4 complete revolutions. Why all this movement when basically it's a full-on or off situation? Would it be possible to replace the rotating valve with a lever actuated one? It would make liife so much easier.
  14. There is a possibility, if sufficient members are interested, of starting a sub-forum dedicated to Quick Mill owners. At least ten active members would be needed for it to become a reality. Any Quick Mill owners (of the amazing Verona, perhaps) who would be interested, please respond to this post for a 'show of hands'. Thank you, Tony.
  15. As the owner of a Verona of one-day-old vintage, I would like to start a Verona (Owners) Forum. How does one go about that? My choice of Verona was the culmination of a lively Coffee Lounge thread 'Decisions, decisions!' which in three days or so had over 1000 views, attracted some 70 posts and involved many CFUK stalwarts including DaveC himself! Would an administrator please advise and/or assist? Thank you. Tony.
  16. Undecided about Iberital MC2 - seems unattractive but well priced thru Happy Donkey and has solid reviews. Can't find much info on Quick Mill Model 80 which visually looks more the part but is a step up again in cost. I guess I'm ultimately keen on a Mignon. As a relative novice with a Gaggia Classic is spending £280 on a Mignin going to prove a better bet. Strong unilateral opinions needed.
  17. I have found this machine on Gumtree. too far away from me. it might be of interest to somebody. http://www.gumtree.com/p/for-sale/semi-professional-espresso-machine-quick-mill-model-andreja-premium-leith/1012645648 Ricardo
  18. Hi, I am a new member to the forum and so apologies for posting another "which machine thread" but I am spinning and I would appreciate all and any thoughts! I have just bought a Eureka Mignon which is currently coupled with a Dualit Espressivo that I have had for the last 3 years. I thought I would follow the maxim that the grinder is more important than the machine, and so far that is definitely true. Much much better coffee than what I was achieving before. The other thing I have done is convert the pressurised basket with a little bit of work using a dremel. But I have reached a point where I feel I need a better machine to get a better shot. The shower head is too uneven, the temperature is not stable and I don't think it is really delivering enough pressure. In terms of my needs I am purely and espresso and americano drinker and so is my wife. We barely buy milk for the house let alone think to froth it. And I normally make 1 or 2 coffees in the morning during the week - maybe 4 or 5 at the weekend. So what I am looking for is a machine that whacks out great shots really consistently. So I am thinking good size brass boiler (but not too big - I don't want to wait an hour for it to heat up!) and the possibility of a PID to really nail the temperature stability. Here are the options and my thinking: 1) Gaggia Classic - can do good shots but the boiler is tiny so you really need to pid to get it stable. Also the boilers corrode because of the mixed metals they use. So I would consider it but I would need convinced that the issues are surmountable. 2) Rancilio Silvia - The go to machine and has a decent 300ml boiler and good general build quality and can be pided quite easily 3) Fracino Piccino - Again good 300ml brass boiler. it looks like you could maintain it easily yourself. If I do do milk drinks (guests etc.) the dual boiler would be great, though most of the time it would be switched off. Its made in Britain and sounds like they offer great back up. It is more expensive but there are two boilers there. I also think it would be easy to pid - I know the official line is not but if you look at the tech drawings the only thing I wonder about is the thermocouple attachment. 4) Quick Mill Silvano - This in someways seems to be the ultimate option for me. 700ml brass boiler for the coffee with a thermoblock for occasional steaming and it comes with a pid already. The big draw back is that it is £700 and right at the edge of what I can justify to myself! I would appreciate thoughts and experiences! Daniel
  19. Hi, I have a quick mill anita since Sept 2017, fairly new. Recently, the pump stopped pushing any water although it was audibly trying. Eventually I got around dismantling it and breaking it free (ordered another one just in case) but after reassembling it I noticed a leak and I've been looking everywhere for this part and where to get one. Any help tracking down the part and a place to buy it is greatly appreciated. Link: https://i.imgur.com/1vgXsT3.jpg
  20. Hi All, Reg Barber Zebra Wood Tamper (57mm, purchased from Coffee Hit). £25 inc postage. There are two small vertical scratches on the side of the base. These happened when tamping I believe. Thanks Steve
