Hi all, 

Further to my Bianca upgrade post, putting my faithful Piccino up for sale. She'd make a good first dual boiler machine for someone I reckon. 

Bought on 28/03/2012, she's not quite hit the 8 mark. Mechanically, there are no issues although the steam wand nossle could do with a new bit of ptfe tape and the steam wand itself can leak a little when cooling. I recently replaced the group gasket with a new cafelat silicone one and a new shower screen. Perhaps pulled three shots with the new ones. 

 

I had the machine fully serviced by Esspressotechno a few years back and had the power switch replaced, as the LED had stopped working. It's a fracino part but it looks slightly different cosmetically. Irritating but not a functional issue. 

 

Otherwise, it's in cosmetically decent shape although has some marks and light scratches you'd expect from a machine that's been well loved! Very soft Scottish water only throughout her life. Used mostly at weekends to pull 3 or 4 shots each day and the odd use during the week (sadly I'm back from the office too late most of the time!). Backflushed with liquid quartz once a month and fresh water between times. 

Will supply with a bottomless portafilter, the original two-spout fracino handle, a 15g VST, a couple of other baskets including a 20g, 18g (I think) and a single basket and I'm sure I have a tamper kicking around - if I can find it, that too (although no guarantees). 

Collection on from just outside Glasgow (as I have no idea how I would ship it) 

Hoping for £170, but happy to consider offers. 

Any questions, just ask. 

Cheers

Hi, interested in getting this as an upgrade to my Gaggia new baby. I'm in Edinburgh but would be happy to pick up from Glasgow, which side are you on?
