Cherub mods and servicing

Recommended Posts

Hello,

maybe a slightly unusual question, but what kind of mods do people normally carry out on their Cherub?

From what I know its a really good machine so it would be interesting to know what people are missing features wise.

 

On a slightly separate subject, what's the usual servicing kit and what needs checking, changing and at what intervals?

 

Thanks!

Awaiting: Arduino upgrade on Gaggia Classic, some skills ;)

I would also like to know both these things.

 

I did order a service kit but it did not come with any labels/diagrams/instructions so no idea what goes where!


Work: Fracino Cherub (OPV mod), La Pavoni Europiccola (with added pressure gauge), Brazen Plus, V60, Aeropress, Mazzer Royal (titanium burrs), Compak K3 Touch, Gold finger 58.55 Sharp Edge, Reg Barber 58.35mm C-Ripple...

Home: Gaggia Classic (PID, and usual mods), Mazzer Super Jolly (and usual mods), Torr Goldfinger Convex 58.4mm, Torr 58.4mm Soft Convex Ebony XS "Vintage Brass"...

The only mod that I made when I had mine was to replace the steam wand with the Londinium one - prettier and steams milk in a more controllable manner

 

Beyond that, I wouldn't have much to suggest. The machine works well and you could be in danger of throwing a load of money at it for little or no return. The biggest change in the cup that I made was by upgrading my grinder


a grinder a lever and some beans

Have a look at the Cherub pars diagrams, you have o rings and washers from the steam and water valves, group head gasket and shower screen...... you can see where they all go in the diagrams. :-)
