  1. Summary - I'm not getting as large a shot volume as I expect and wonder if I need new seals for my Quickmill Veloce, maybe the modified Londinium seals as the machines share the same group? I'm actually getting nice tasty shots at the moment, if a little sharp (not sour) using barely rested med/dark roast 75% Costa Rican/ 25% Sumatran which is admittedly a bit on the bright side. I'm running 18g nicely distributed grounds in an 18g VST basket ground fairly close to choking the machine and well distributed. As a test trying to get the highest shot volume I can I give it a 20 second p
  2. Hi, so since has pid already, I plan to simply replace element with 110v and run 110 straight to ssr, then plug machine into 100watt transformer and keep electronics on 220v. Will be plumbing, so pump will be coming out as well. Benefit being I don't need giant transformer and cost will be about the same. Couple questions, 1) Can anyone knowledgeable of electrics see anything wrong with my plan? Will ground the 110v, so seems sound, but never done it before and thinking wise to at least ask. 2) Can anyone who owns a Veloce tell me if it uses this style of fitting on the elemen
  3. Haven't you got one of these Mr Kidd? [video=youtube;dlDz7OMp-qg]
  4. I have had five very happy years with my Quickmill 2820, which came to an end when I recently sampled my favourite coffee from my coffee dealer's Strega. The plan therefore is to upgrade to a lever machine, and the current contenders due to footprint and price are the Strega and the Veloce. Due to the more traditional approach, I currently lean towards the Veloce. However, I'd like to see if someone had the chance to compare the two and their pro's and cons. Plumbing in would also be a advantage, can the Veloce be plumbed in or retrofitted to be plumbed in? Many thanks!
  5. **Do not bid on this - suspected eBay account hack** http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/La-Marzocco-GS3-Espresso-Machine-AV-/281861320463?hash=item41a03e6f0f:g:hgEAAOSw6dNWTbYg be careful if it is you...that is all I am going to say

    It landed this morning. None of the fuss or drama you would expect in unpacking it. All I had to do was screw the lever in and away we go. Now, I have been without a lever for 2 months so my mind has become infected with pump charachteristics! The machine had been bench tested so I just filled the resevoir and away we went. The pump taking the water into the boiler is extremely quiet. I have forgotten what they used but it is not silent but very gentle. My L1 used to rattle when it drew water through! I set the machine up, vented the steam wand and did the same with the water arm, which is a
  7. Ok so my Veloce arrived yesterday and I have just gone through my first 250g of beans without really achieving much. Certainly haven't produced anything you could drink. I looked at the 'preparing and pulling a shot' post but that's way too advanced for me, what I need are some basic numbers/instructions to work with until I can get the fundamental process happening. Using Rodney's video with the Strega as a guide to basic operation, I notice he pulls the lever all the way down and waits for the flow to come then releases leaver and allows to rise until the spring 'takes over'. Obvi

    Jampit, Veloce

    I still have not found a bean to come close!
  9. After being messed about with the courier, and a stressful few days, my package finally arrived albeit completely battered and with a massive hole in it. Thankfully, the machine doesn't appear to be damaged at all. Initial impressions (before I've even had time to sample any shots!): + It's massive, it completely dwarves my Sage DTP and even my Casadio Enea (which I used to think was big!) It even feels bigger than Rob's Veloce mk1 - even though mine has a smaller boiler - could be imagining this though. + It feels really well built, and I think it looks damn sexy. + I'm de
  10. 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 58m
