My Set Up - Old vs New

Recommended Posts

Just finished disassembling, cleaning and reassembling my new grinder so thought it would be the perfect time to post my set up.

 

So here is my Izzo Alex MK1 and Compak K10, next to my Gaggia Classic and Compak K3.

 

The pictures don't really show how much bigger the K10 is to the K3.

 

Really happy with my set up and shows that you can get a good one cheaply, if you are willing to scour eBay for weeks and clean for a couple days.

 

 

Posting this while waiting for my machine to heat up, so I can make my first coffee with the new grinder.

 

Does still need work, grinder is missing a piece and the doser lens cracked in transport.

Bought it used in November, I did like it and it makes nice drinks but was a massive PITA when making drinks for guests.

@DaveMak £250 plus ~30 postage off eBay. Happy with it but the steaming power is unbelievable, first time I managed proper microfoam was yesterday, takes me about half the time to steam double the milk and it has a habit of escaping up the walls of the jug and out, so has been a bit of a curve.

Well I was lucky, set up my snipe with a bid of £251, so I was very close to missing it.
