Sold: Expobar Leva Dual Boiler (not the plumbed-in version)

Recommended Posts

This is an advert for my recently replaced espresso machine.

 

I bought it new from BellaBarista on Jan 4 2013 (I still have the receipt).

 

It suffered a leaking relief valve in 2015, which was replaced and throughout its life has been regularly de-scaled and cleaned. Otherwise I have had no problems with it. It has delivered around 3000 espressos in its time with me and provided an excellent follow-on from a Gaggia that I had used before treating myself to a retirement present. A slippery slope.

 

Initially I used (Brita) filtered water and then moved over to Volvic bottled water.

 

The item has had a thorough service and inspection at BB, there is a receipt for all the work carried out, which will transfer to the new owner. The pump was replaced, alongwith the group head gasket and the shower screen plus a full service of the group head itself.

 

It is now as-new, minor wear from use excepted.

 

It comes with

 

The (somewhat amusing) Expobar instruction manual, plus the excellent BB-written detailed instructions on use and maintenance.

A single portafilter with double and single baskets and a blind filter for backflushing

A tamper

Cleaning brush

 

I will accept offers based on £600, which will include P&P (UK ONLY, I am afraid) from BB in Wellingborough. The purchaser could collect from BB if preferred. BB cannot demonstrate the machine though.

 

Here are the pictures (apologies for the odd orientation, it was hard to double guess what the uploader was going to do)

Yes it has a PID. It will be better when I have some pictures to post. But in the meantime

That looks like a great buy for somebody. How is it that just after you buy bigger and better things appear at really good prices ;)

Sure I am not the first or will not be the last person to post such thoughts. No brainer for anybody who wants a decent DB but who would struggle to buy it new. Where is the gentleman who was interested in the Unica I purchased. This is the one for you!

I so need something like this in my life. Single boiler faff is wearing me down.

 

How long was it run on the Brita filter, how often did you descale and how hard is your water?

 

This should go quickly.

Machine is the 2013 model, not sure whether it has been updated by Expobar since. I am pretty confident it is the same model that BB are currently selling for around £1200.

 

Machine never saw our tapwater (very hard in Suffolk). BB (Jordan) reported that the machine as very clean, but every 3 months or so it was always de-scaled according to the BB manual. It is a laborious process but gets the job done.
