Had a new kitchen fitted and negotiated some prime space in it with SWMBO!

Before I joined this forum I was perfectly happy with my Krups machine

Nice space, well won, and nice set up...bit better than a krups machine.


What's the point...it'll only change soon!

That is very nice!!!

 

Being new to all this - what is the coffee machine - make and model. Whilst I know these things have to function well it is a bonus when they look like that!

Thanks.

Yep used to be called an Ariete didn't it?

It is an Ariete and is tank fed. I have had it for about 7 months and I have been very happy with it. However it stopped working on Thursday! The lights come on but the boiler is not heating up. I am taking it back to Fracino on Tuesday. They tell me that they have never had one back before with this fault and I have every confidence that they will sort it out whilst I wait.

I presume the pint glass is there to purge into. My steam arm doesn't leak either but I keep a small Tropicana bottle under it so I can blow out the condensate prior to steaming. It looks so 2-bob though that you won't see it in any pics I post!

I see. I purge into the drip tray or mainly into a cloth

I have just bought a classico myself and my only criticism is the fact that when I have two Latte cups the right one gets in the way of the brewing lever, have you got any tips?
