SOLD Fracino Cherub

Recommended Posts

I'd rather others replied in some way as I have a vested interest in promoting this item! However, I've had a Cherub and a Heavenly and I have been exceptionally pleased with both. The milk steaming is easy I find shots consistent. The one irritation is the silly small drip tray but all in all they're great machines. I'm only selling this as I got a really excellent deal on a Rocket that I couldn't say no to and the Rocket is lovelier still.

 

As I say over to the others to give you their independent view.

 

Happy for you to see try etc with no obligation or expectation!

Thanks Jonc, and hopefully others ;-)

 

Are there any accessories with it? What in the way of portafilters/tampers etc?

 

Also, what the story with your listing it on Ebay for best offer? is there a time limit? I'm interested but need to think about it!

Erm, standard handle and portafilters, will probably keep my high quality Happy Donkey tamper!

 

It's up on Ebay as I wanted to reach both audiences; I'm listing it here at about 12% less.

 

There's no rush at all from my side - but obviously if someone buys it on ebay at full price I can't do much. In the meantime if I get a best offer on ebay that I'm considering I'll post it here with the equivalent price I'd accept through here. It'll be 10/11/12% less based on no fees!

i used my cherub with an MC2 when i was starting off. It was OK, but soon I wanted to change to something better to get the best out of the machine.

Not sure if the grinder I'm selling is 'better' - but if it was, and you wanted it, and you took the Cherub, then I'd swap the grinders without cost - I've seen doserless mods on them on here - but best to decide yourself/research/check with others if this would be worthwhile - or a step sideways/back!

Hi Shrink, thanks for that.

 

Jonc, Thanks for the grinder offer - I will have a read about them - although tonight I'm off to a barista course so it will have to wait!

 

Where about in Kent are you? Standard "portafilters" doesn't include a naked one? And would you accept an offer or is £399 the final price? ;-)

 

Thanks!

Near Maidstone. No nakedness, I'm afraid! Always open to discussion/offers!

Sounds good, I shall wish you raffle luck nonetheless!

These machines are fantastic value for the quality they produce. A huge leap up from using a Classic or Silvia.

Thanks

Hi J

 

Thanks for the offer it is a wee bit less than I was thinking of, but I would probably go to £375?

 

I think you asked me where in Kent I am - and I wondered do you ever get to Kent or the M25/London way at all - or East at all - it's just in a way I'd be happier with you seeing/playing first?

 

Cheers

 

Jon

Hi Jonc,

 

Sorry for the delay in replying. I really like the idea of coming to have a play before picking it up, especially as I might be able to pick up some top tips! I do get up to St Albans and even London on occasion, but on the train, so getting down to Maidstone may be a bit of a push - especially to bring back a 25kg machine on the train! Sometime in the future I will be planning a visit to Kent but thats prob a long time away... Soooo.... Unless you'd be happy to hang on for a bit, perhaps shipping would be the best option?

 

Thanks!

Happy to hang on for a bit. Or happy to demo and then ship afterwards - though couriers + coffee machines terrify me. Basically I'm easy!

I respectfully informed Flanners of this. I don't think he realised.

 

Basically situation is this:

 

The water beeper isn't working reliably so I need to ring fracino.

 

I'll hold on a firm decision until I speak to them - if someone wants to collect it personally before then - as is - for 375 - they can!

Hi Jonc,

 

what exactly does the water beeper do?

 

Cheers J

I had this problem. Got it fixed by Fracino under warranty. They replaced the water tank - a £20 job. Many machines I'm sure don't even have this feature.

 

Otherwise just keep an eye on the water level as it runs down a lot quicker than you think, especially when pulling several shots back to back dialling in new beans.
