  1. A new sub forum has been created - The Expobar Forum This new sub forum was created due to the growing number of Expobar owners here at Coffee Forums UK This forum can be used to discuss anything related to Expobar, from parts & accessories, to machines and servicing
  2. Hi one and all, I am looking to buy a Classic and have heard rightly or wrongly the Classic II isn't built quite as well and also can't be pressure adjusted. Hence I am looking at second hand Classics. I have the option to buy one from 2007, but would imagine some servicing and cleaning will be required. What sorts of things would you expect to need some attention to ensure the machine performs near its best? Thanks, Jon
  3. Hi all, I have a minor issue with my Expobar and was wondering if anyone would care to recommend a mobile technician who covers south east London. TIA Greg
  4. Hi, Does anyone have any recommendations for servicing in London on a dual fuel Contempo? It's the gas side of things I'm a bit worried about, ideally I'd be looking for someone who could do a combined service + gas safe cert, if such a person exists. Cheers! Cal
  5. Anyone know where I can get a impressa s9 serviced? I'm based in berks. Alternatively, I suspect a clip has come off a hose, water's pouring out of the unit (again). I would have a go at getting the thing back on myself, but the rear panel has what looks like some proprietary oval shaped screw holding the rear panel on :-( Thanks, Stu
  6. Got a friend who needs his machine servicing, from some (bad) videos he sent me I think the safety valve is scaled and not popping up properly to seal the boiler but he does only use bottled water (Ashbeck) so it shouldn't have seen London levels of scale. Anyway he sent e a link for caffe79.com servicing as he is thinking of using them, but if anyone has any recommendations or there are any London based engineers on the forum then let me know!
  7. Currently in the process of deciding to purchase a second hand La Spaziale S1 Armonia EK and I’d love it to get a once over. I’m sure this has been asked a million times and might be in a different section but is there somewhere or someone you would recommend me sending it to? I live down in Hampshire if that helps at all?
  8. Hi I started my roastery business back in April. One of the questions I often get asked is 'do you offer servicing and repair?' Of course not! I started this business because I am passionate about coffee, not to become a repair man, but that's not what the customer wants to hear. They would rather settle for sub-standard coffee and have the whole headache of what happens when the machine breaks down taken away, so, they buy into a package that it is very difficult to prise them away from. One day, the business might be big enough to employ its own repair man. In the meantime can anyone please advise if they know of any reputable repair/servicing companies that would operate with the roaster as the middle man, sort of as a distributor of their services? Failing that, can anyone recommend reputable repair/servicing companies? I am in the South-East. Thanks Dan

    Serviced my Giotto Evo today. Backflush with Cafiza and de-scale with citric acid. No real evidence of scale so I guess Ashbrook has been doing its job. Only disturbing thing, bits of chrome appearing when flushing. Also took the panels off and made minor changes to pipe routing where they were touching the case and vibrating. Raised the pressure switch setting by half a turn to 'on at 1 bar off at 1.1 bar'. Turned out to be a bad move, will return to original tomorrow. Where before, no cooling flush necessary, now it is. No obvious change to steaming potential. Following the Bellabarista instructions I did get a bit of squeaking from the lever during the process and, as promised in the instructions this disappeared swiftly after a few flushes without any need to add lubricant to the cams etc. Pleasantly surprised by the lack of scale, worried by the chrome flakes. Won't now bother to descale for at last another year.
  10. Hi guys! Help needed in finding reliable supplier of new Gaggia Classic-how about Caffe Italia? How is Gaggia servicing going with the Company changes? For my grinder I'm looking at a Mazzer Mini E doserless or a mahlkonig Vario. Can just about afford that kit new but couldn't afford the constant upgrade route that most folk seem to go. All comments will be gratefully received. Thanks, Freddo
  11. The pump pressure adjuster has been driving me mad. I adjusted it to about 8.5 which gave me a nicer cup and it was fine until I descaled the machine. Now the pressure is all over the place. I'll adjust it to 9 and it will drop to below 8. Today I thought I had it going ok but it sat around 6.5. The pump often makes a vibration noise which is almost like a turned down vibe pump. When it gets to the proper pressure it's quiet. I'm pretty sure this isn't a damaged pump. I'm concerned and I do suspect as it coincided with a descale that I have some kind of blockage which isn't clearing. I don't really want to descale again but I'm also not keen on taking the thing apart as the problem could be anywhere. Any ideas? Has anyone had a similar problem with their rotary pump pressure? Also I'm tempted to find someone to look at it (Sussex area) but this being England (not Australia or USA) there are precious few places that I can find apart from Bellabarrista who would charge probably around £300-400. The machine is only 3 years old and I'm beginning to panic. :-)
