  1. Here we go! I'm going o sell one of my machines from my private collection, unused Vesuvius wrapped carbon fiber version, unique with a mod steam wands. PTFE version. Here some pics. 2650 £ shipped. feel free to contact me for any details. Thanks Paolo This is a link to the user guide done by Davec of your forum https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/vesu...ile.php?id=148
  2. Looking for some help and advice please. My Vesuvius (purchased new earlier this year) has started to produce very cloudy water from the main service (brew) boiler, i.e. serving the portafilter. I can’t detect a taste but realise I must have drunk some of it, i.e. a few cups, before realising the cloudiness was not temporary. The cloudiness in the water does not clear, e.g. within an hour, but I’m in the process of leaving the jug shown below for several hours. I’ve brewed no more than 1.5kg of coffee since purchase. I’ve cleaned the head a few times with an Espazzola, but apart from that have not yet carried out any other cleaning, apart from removing and cleaning the shower head weekly. No cleaning chemicals have been used at all. I live in a very soft water area which produces no noticeable limescale on household appliances like kettles. I have been using a Brita filter jug (for better or worse), but don’t see how its use can have led to the very considerable cloudiness in the brewed water. I’d be very grateful for any suggestions or methods to diagnose the problem. Many thanks in advance, Ian
  3. There is a single Vesuvius available, was built for an exhibition....can't say more than that, a request prompted me to lis If you want it claim it on the thread, stating clearly the options you want. 1st come first served. PM me with your e-mail details and delivery address, I will then forward your details to ACS so you can deal with ACS directly for payment, delivery etc.. I will update the thread with the machines remaining as they get claimed. The prices you see are the prices you pay, with no additional charges. Remember you have to make payment in Euros. I have been asked to suggest a price for these items and allow them to be offered to forum members. a great opportunity to by surplus stock from the exhibition..Disclaimer, I get no commission (or a single penny piece in any way or kind), just helping out friends. These are significant bargains for the right forum members. The price includes VAT The photo shows a stainless steel pipework interior below, the machines are a stainless steel finish not a black finish. £2350 New Vesuvius, Stainless Steel external finish standard pipework. Options available group pressure gauge fitted and additional £16, (I think it's a great option to take up) - sold Subsidised delivery cost (airshipped) is £20 (this is for the UK normal postal addresses) for other destinations especially outside Europe, there may be an extra charge, or if you are in one of those special places where you know postage is very expensive/special tax charges. Everything comes with a 2 year (transferable) parts warranty only, the Vesuvius is of course manufactured by ACS and will come with whatever plug you require for your country of origin. The Vesuvius machines were made for the Exhibition and are fully up to date models with the improvements to the safety valve and vacuum breaker system. Please don't make offers, the stuff is already so cheap they won't be accepted. For those who don't know I did review and help with the final design of the Vesuvius, I own one myself and consider it the finest dual boiler pressure profiling compared to other normal prosumer machines in it's class. It manages pressure exceptionally well uses a proper gear pump not a standard rotary, stainless steel solenoid valves, has 3 independent PID loops (on a 3 group commercial board) to control everything and is really well made (very expensive to make). It's also very very accurate on temperature control and I consider it to be pressure profiling done right. The link to the last version userguide I did is here if you want to read up on it https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/vesu...ile.php?id=148 These machines at little more than Dual Boiler money is a ridiculously good deal and represents a genuine saving of £1045 for standard machines.
  4. This post is based on blog post from Scot Rao https://www.scottrao.com/blog/2018/7/18/advanced-mode-on-the-de1 I tried to mimic the bloom phase on Vesuvius machine as follows: 1. Program the preinfusion to P1 program straight 2 bar (max pressure for preinfusion 3bar) for 10s 2. Program the brew program to P2 whatever you want. For exapmple straight 9 bar or 6 bar or my favorite, from 6 to 4 bar in 20s with ek43. 3. Set P1, lock in the portafilter and start the brew process. 4. After 10s the P1 program ends. 5. LEAVE the handle of the group in top brew position. 6. Let the cofee bloom for 20-30s. 7. Switch to P2 program through the menu. 8. Move the handle to MIDDLE preinfusion possition NOT all the way down. We want to leave the drain valve closed. 9. Move the handle immediately to TOP brew position. You will start the P2 program. 10. Finish the brew process as usual after reaching the required coffee weight. Please try it and let me know your experience.
  5. Lets get the irritants out of the way. Probably because I 'm the first with the Machine & it was pushed through for me there is no User Guide/Manual. Only thing available apart from Bella Barista's Closer Look is a rather scrappy set of explanatory instructions in irregular English. A 'cheat sheet' type of explanation at least to get you installed would be invaluable. I was told it had six adjustable feet, it came with four. I was just about to notify BB of the shortage when Davec told me there had been a change in the spec. With the Machine came a beautiful thick ply fitted box. Very well made & obviously expensive. It held all the bits & pieces PFs, tamper spares etc. I question why was it needed?. Once unpacked the box is empty maybe good for some other use but you would never probably use it again unless you sold the Machine. A plastic/thick cardboard box would have been more than ample. The outer reusable packing case is excellent best I've ever seen. Advance preparation prior to moving the Vesuvius into position. In position & ready to set up. I set a simple lever type profile just to get started & see what would happen. Using my own blend of Monsooned Malabar & Brazil Ipanema Gourmet Pulped Natural from Coffee Compass I used 20g beans ground at 2.1 on the EK (Irish Dial) into a 20g VST. Did not weigh the output, that's all happening tomorrow, just wanted to see what came out of the Machine. I was so stunned by the espresso I stood in disbelief. I had got so used & enjoyed the EK type of espresso but here now in an instant, first drink out without any special prep I was drinking sheer nectar. All the smoothness, sweetness & depth of the EK grind but now I am also getting the great mouthfeel & lingering taste of the original pre EK shots. If this is the first shot out with no great care being taken, where do we go from here?. Been up most of last night so very tired but can't wait till tomorrow to resume with proper tests & set up my profiles. Don't usually drink much coffee in the evening but just had to try a cappa. Unbelievable steam producing the most silky micro foam ever. More tomorrow night........

PM me with your e-mail details and delivery address, I will then forward your details to ACS so you can deal with ACS directly for payment, delivery etc.. I will update the thread with the machines remaining as they get claimed. One last exhibition display Vesuvius machines is available. I have been asked to suggest a price for these items and allow them to be offered to forum members. a great opportunity to by surplus stock from the exhibition..Disclaimer, I get no commission (or a single penny piece in any way or kind), just helping out friends.The major change to pricing is the fact that with 2 stainless pipe machines I asked them to trim another £50 off the previous forum price. As this directly eats into profit, they were reluctant but have agreed to do so. This makes the chance to get a stainless steel pipe interior at less than it costs the factory to add the option! These are significant bargain s for the right forum members. The price includes VAT The photo shows a stainless steel pipework interior below, this machine is a stainless steel finish not a black finish. The machine has never been used £2350 New Vesuvius, Stainless Steel, upgraded stainless steel pipework interior (just gathered dust at the exhibition) Available due to buyer not proceeding with purchase. ( sold ) The stainless pipework inside actually costs the dealers more (I have to be super careful what I say here) and then they add some profit....I have added a little less than the true extra cost of this, which normally adds £400 more to the final retail price. Below a link to CC web site. If you add our Vat that's an equivalent price of £3844 (wow) https://www.chriscoffee.com/searchre...earch=vesuvius Subsidised delivery cost (airshipped) is £20 (this is for the UK normal postal addresses) for other destinations especially outside Europe, there may be an extra charge, or if you are in one of those special places where you know postage is very expensive/special tax charges.

These are significant bargain s for the right forum members. The prices all include VAT and there is only one of each item. I have a photo of the black machine and a stainless steel pipework interior below. The machines have never been used There is: £2150 New Vesuvius, Stainless steel, standard interior ( just gathered dust at the exhibition ) SOLD £2350 New Vesuvius, matt Black Powder Coat (very hard), upgraded stainless steel pipework interior ( just gathered dust at the exhibition ).... I think this looks fantastic, I should also add that I think it may be unique as a one off, because it's the same stainless body prepped and powder coated, and never done in steel before ! I don't know if any more black will ever be made and there are no more panels to make any more. It's pending a decision later this summer. I hope they do decide to continue, because I am seriously considering selling my current V and buying a Black SS pipework one if they ever do them again (money and swmbo permitting).

  8. Following my purchase of Vesuvius via DaveC on forum its arrived from Italy today. I have spent the evening setting up and running few shots through. First impressions are everything and just opening the shipping box is an experience, with the lovely box full of various accessories. It comes with 3 portafilters one being a bottomless plus a nice tamper.
  9. I am considering buying a new espresso machine for the money I could get from selling my compak e8 and rocket giotto V2. They are both extremely good (and beautiful) pieces of equipment but I am tired with not having a PID. My main issue with the rocket is that it is extremely difficult to get reproducible temp profiles (based on Eric's thermometer readings) affecting the consistency (based on my tastebuds readings) of the shots I am pulling. I think that dual boiler machine with PID could solve this issue. I would use a Pharos grinder as my main espresso grinder instead of the compak. I do not mind using the Pharos as I almost always do 2 shots at a time (for me and my wife), and in case of having guests I have single-dosed Mazzer mini-E with SJ burrs which I normally use for filter coffee. I have no way of plumbing-in the machine so it has to be tank-feed. I rarely do any milk beverages (only sometimes for practice). Vesuvius is my dream machine. It has all I need plus features that I will most likely need after I get what I want now: pressure profiling and auto-on timer. I would have to be on a low calorie diet for a few months to save for the Vesuvius and my wife may not be happy. There is quit a few dual boiler machines with PID below £2000. Do you think it is worthwhile doing this sort of an upgrade or is it my upgraditis? Any thoughts? In case you want to say that it is my technique or coffee that is to blame and not the equipment: I almost always get perfect shots (no channeling and in centre) in naked portafilter with VST baskets. Pressure checked with a manometer attached to a basket. Tamping with joefrex tamper. Alway single dosing. Usually single origin coffee from hasbeen or workshop used between 1 and 3 weeks from roast date, kept in a bag.
  10. First off collection only, Lancaster NW I am not prepare to box this or have a courier arranged . I may be able to meet within a 30 mile radius but my time is limited . Machine as pictured , it has a few marks on the drip tray , one larger mark and one larger mark not the front . I have tried to capture these in the photos. I have run it on Volvic since i had it . Comes fitted with the Kees e61 shower screen , and a NS , four hole tip steam wand, as the pics shows the length of this means it just goes over the edge of the drip tray straight , but it is monster steam want and tip . i have the original steam arm if it is required to be refitted . The machine has bespoke wood on the toggles and the metal pf made by the the guy from home barista , and bespoke metal made my Risky off here . I have the original wood if required , although in my opinion it is in poor quality . It comes with Stock basket , One naked e61 pf , one Stainless steel double pf ( from Torr ) One double spouted pf with wood and metal finish , one single spout pf with original wood and metal finish . I will throw in one VST basket of your choice either 18g 20g or 22g I have the bespoke wooden box that all the plumbing stuff comes in ( ill take pictures later ) . It also had a new cam put on this year by Xpenno and I have fitted the New steam OPV valve to it ( this is the valve the USA models now have ) I think this is well priced , given the price new £3000 and the fact that new machines are only going to go up in price from Italy given the exchange rate . Technical info here https://www.bellabarista.co.uk/vesuvius-dual-boiler-espresso-coffee-machine.html
  11. I thought I would start my own thread as I have a few bits I have been asked to do . Also those that are not interested can ignore it . The first handle here is for a Vesuvius, made out of Blackwood . It is very hard but machines well and the picture is of it sanded to 600 grit with no finish . A bit of research is needed into what finish will be used as the wood is dense and has natural oils . On the internet it is suggested to sand up to 2000 grit and polish ..
  12. So western union made a mess of the transfer I was making for the vesuvius. I was wondering, people who've bought this machine, did you use WU or transferwise or something better? Would appreciate the advice.
  13. Christmas is coming and we have a special offer for forum members. We have 4 ex demo machines available at a very special price for the festive season and due to our upcoming factory move. All machines are a stainless steel case and PTFE internal pipework. The Vesuvius is an advanced pressure profiling machine using a mag drive gear pump. Up to 5 profiles can be stored each with up to 7 pressure phases. Pressure is PID controlled and managed directly via the extremely accurate gear pump, not a needle valve or similar, believe this gives superior control. The machine has 2 PID controlled boilers one for steam and the other for brew water. It also has some unique features such as last shot protection, eco mode and even the ability to enable or disable brew water preheating to suite the environment and load requirements made of the machine. More can be read about the machine and supplied accessories at this link: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/vesuvius/download/file.php?id=148 Note: all machines come supplied with a bottomless portafilter, tamper and group brush as an additional accessories that are not mentioned in the user guide above Order before 10 November 2018 the price will be £2050 + a £20 contribution to air shipping and a free group pressure gauge fitted. Order after 10th November the price will be £2150 for the machine a £20 contribution to air shipping (an optional fitted group pressure gauge will be £16 extra not free) The warranty offered is 2 years parts only and is fully transferable should you sell the machine during this period. *Ex demonstration means the machine may have been exhibited, or even used for a limited number of shots at exhibition or other venues by ACS. As such they should not be considered a “new” machine. They will of course all be factory checked and prepared in the same way any new machine is. These factory direct machines represent a saving in excess of £1200 (if the Christmas offer is used) for the right people and are all VAT inclusive prices. These are for private and not business purchase should you be wanting to use a business treatment of VAT If you want a machine claim it on the thread, stating clearly the options you want. PM me with your e-mail details and delivery address and phone number.. I will update the thread with the machines remaining as they get claimed.
  14. They have had a customer pay the deposit and then go silent. Perhaps , died perhaps bankrupt...I don't really care. This leaves 3 prebuilt machines available (2 x Vesuvius and One Vostok 2 group). The only option is to have a group pressure gauge added (as an extra) to the Vesuvius machines and it might just be dropped into the box, not fitted (don't know, don't care).. The Vesuvius machines come with stainless steel pipework If you want a machine claim it on the thread, stating clearly the options you want. 1st come first served. PM me with your e-mail details and delivery address, I will then forward your details to ACS so you can deal with ACS directly for payment, delivery etc..

As this directly eats into profit. These are significant bargain s for the right forum members. The price includes VAT The photo shows a stainless steel pipework interior below, the machines are a stainless steel finish not a black finish. £2350 New Vesuvius, Stainless Steel external finish Stainless Steel pipework. Options available group pressure gauge fitted +£16 (SOLD) £2350 New Vesuvius, Stainless Steel external finish Stainless Steel pipework. Options available group pressure gauge fitted +£16 So if you wanted a Vesuvius with stainless steel pipework and a group pressure gauge fitted, it will be £2366, The stainless pipework inside actually costs the dealers more (I have to be super careful what I say here) and then they add some profit....I have added a little less (only £200) than the true extra cost of this, which normally adds £400 more to the final retail price.

Here is the advert at Cafe Italia, a well known (if not loved retailer/B+x Shifter) https://www.coffeeitalia.co.uk/acsvostock2groups.htmlAs you see the price is £5175 inc VAT. It's rare that cafe Italia get undercut... Now I don't really expect anyone on the forum to buy it, but I suggested they list it. It is available on here for the bargain price of £2700, plus £80 contribution to insured shipping. (I think that's a saving of over £2400). A rare and unusual lever machine. I don't know what accessories it comes with, but all the usual stuff I suppose, pipes, portafilters baskets etc.. (provisionally sold)
  15. I seem to be missing a spring in my step!! So, I opened up the lower part of my group last night because I was a bit concerned the group wasn't draining quite like it used to, and was very suprised to find no spring in the top part of the lower chamber. Is this normal? I've got spare springs, so can replace if necessary, but didn't want to put one in if there wasn't one there before. I can't get into the bottom part of the lower chamber at all, have had to order another set of adjustable wrenches to provide counter-torque, its a complete pain in the butt.
  16. So my vesuvius has developed this mark on top & side of the group head. It seems to me to be coming out through the surface, if that makes sense. It also aligns with a lug of the portafilter. Has anyone else seen this similar and if so, were you able to get rid of the mark or is it a manufacturing defect? Second question: has anyone replaced the wood on the portafilter handles and the toggles? The OEM wood really does detract from the overall impression of quality.
  17. Hello, I'm in need of guidance, please. I've sold quite a bit of stuff recently, so can sort of justify "swapping a load of things for one thing" and with a new bigger kitchen... it's time to upgrade from the Rancilio Silvia/Auber PID that has served me so well. I have a Mazzer Royal, and I roast my own beans in a Gene Cafe 101A. I guess I make between 2 and 5 coffees a day. But they have to be good! I'm reckoning on spending maybe £1.5-2K. A friend has been delighted with his Rocket (though I don't know which one - single boiler?). That said, I could, at a pinch, push the boat out for a Vesuvius. It will last me. Another friend has his heart set on a Marzocco Linea Mini, and has been trying to persuade me to go the same way. I do like to be able to tinker, but then like for stuff to "just work", so that I don't have to think too much each time. I do want reliable, hassle free coffee. Okay doing the cleaning rituals, but the less the better! Open to ideas. One more thing - by chance, I'm going to a meeting on Tuesday which will put me about 20 minutes from Bella Barista, so I could drop in. Best to go prepared though, I'm sure! Thanks in advance :-)
  18. We are looking to upgrade to one of these machines this week, luckily we live in the same town as Bella Barista, so can go and have a look and try the machines. I just wondered if anyone on here had one and if so how do you rate it? what are the pros & cons? Thanks Sarah
  19. Some people may know we are moving factory, our old place is being redeveloped. The move is expensive for us but good for you. I have 3 machines I want to sell rather than move to the new factory. I also have a carbon fibre wrap machine which was shown only at exhibition and I will do a separate advert for this. £2150 New Vesuvius, Stainless steel outside PTFE standard pipes inside... If you want stainless pipework inside... + £250 I will add an E61 group pressure gauge to any machine for free (if you ask nicely). http://www.elcor.it/vesuvius-en/ Subsidised delivery cost is £20 (this is for the UK normal postal addresses) for other destinations especially outside Europe, there may be an extra charge, or if you are in one of those special places where you know postage is very expensive/special tax charges. These machines are shipped by Air to the UK, so no long waits Everything comes with a 2 year parts warranty only and will come with whatever plug you require for your country of origin. This is a link to the user guide done by Davec of your forum https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/vesu...ile.php?id=148 Please send me a message if you want any of the machines The carbon fibre wrap machine, look out for the advert which I do later.
  20. It hurts to write this post After two bouts of car trouble in consecutive weeks it looks like I’m going to need to replace my car - I’m at the stage where I can’t trust it anymore and I have a daily 40 mile commute. So.... I am offering for sale my very recently bought machine and grinder Acs Vesuvius / Matt black £2,000 Mythos Clima Pro / Matt Black £1,300 The Vesuvius is in brand new condition and due to me being out of the country for part of the time I’ve owned it and then the car trouble it’s had very minimal use. It has copper and ptfe pipework and the group pressure gauge. — it’s had less than 3 bottles of Ashbeck water through it.. I bought the Clima Pro used in December last year from a forum member and it has never been used in a commercial setting.. home use only! It’s the Victoria Arduino badged version which I prefer to the N.S badged one and is a January 2018 model so a year old. Have all original packaging for both grinder and machine. Not willing to ship due to risk of damage. Located M69 between Leicester and Coventry
  21. Hi there I'm buying a Vesuvius on the ACS Christmas deal, which I'm incredibly excited about! I have a question about the steam arm, which usually comes on the left hand side. It is possible to swap it with the hot water and put it on the right hand side, which I'm tempted to do as I'm right handed and previous experience with a steam arm on the right hand side has felt intuitively correct. However, I notice in a Bellabarista document from way back when a prototype was tested that the steam wand was initially on the right hand side but its position was reversed. So - does anyone know of any reason why these were changed over; is there any reason why I shouldn't swap them over? And - more generally, does it make any difference which side the steam wand is on, if you're right-handed? I'm wondering if I'm just more comfortable with the RHS because I've been used to it before. And what motivates espresso machine designers to put them on one side or another? Any thoughts gratefully received! Thanks
  22. Other than the hilarity of searching for “Vesuvius Exploded View” if you forget to put espresso in the search. I have not had much luck finding something like this. If anyone happens to know where to find one I am curious about some of the details and I’m crazy enough to want to mess with the electronics inside. Thus, also a circuit diagram would be cool, granted if I got one I could just trace it out. I really like the Fluid-o-Tech's integrated controller with a 0-5V control link, as a simple way to get involved with a normally very complicated system for electronics. I’ve also noticed at least in NA the prices seem to be dropping or they are getting listed as clearance. Does anyone happen to know a reason for this? Suggestions welcomed, on if that makes it a great time to get one or a bad time. Thanks all
  23. Bought on the forum directly from Paolo at ACS via DavecUK's thread, landed in Jan-18 (practically brand new, had only gathered dust at an exhibition) I've had this on my kitchen worktop alongside my linea mini for 5 months, alternating each day between the two machines Completely unnecessary of me to have two machines for so long in my small kitchen, it was rather indulgent and I was somewhat indecisive. My wife has finally had enough and I've decided to keep the linea mini, so looking to pass the Vesuvius on to a new owner Its a fantastic machine, as many will agree on the forum. I've decided to just keep things simple and stick with a the LM, although I did really enjoy the pressure profiling of the V. The LM is also slightly smaller which is better for my small kitchen, and I am also a bit of a sucker for the La Marzocco brand and design. Not an easy decision, as indicated by the poll I set up which showed 26 vs 25 vote marginally in favour of the LM The machine is in great condition, some very tiny marks on the drip try from general use, otherwise in perfect condition. Standard piping. Comes with three portafilters (see pictures) and packaged in a massive wooden box. Pick up only in London W12 given the size and weight.
  24. Thanks to @DavecUK and @Paolo_Cortese this beauty arrived this week. It's so easy to produce much better shots with the Vesuvius. My extractions went from around 18% on the NS Oscar 2 to 22% with the Vesuvius. On top of that it also looks amazing and is a real joy to use - thanks guys
