    Hello everyone, I've been using the forum as a source of information for some time and decided I really should join. The amount of things I've learned form this site is amazing so thank you all for helping me along the way. My journey started with a Fracino Cherub and a Compak K3 Touch a...

    Is this dependent on having the warranty card or can you claim via reciept? I think I may have lost the card...and I can't drink coffee anymore / find good LSOL decaf so I am going to sell my gear. Thanks

    I'm looking to upgrade sometime soon & thought this looked like an interesting machine but on another thread someone implied it's very overpriced as it's a vibe pump machine. I know you can't plumb vibe pumps but are there other issues with them? And what are peoples thoughts generally on the...

    Hi all. I've recently decided to take the plunge and upgrade my coffee experience. I've owned a pod machine, and then experimented with a bean to cup machine for a few years but have decided to take more interest and control. I've been doing my homework by lurking on forums such as this one...
  5. Compak Grinders
    I have joined this party, my E5 is due tomorrow. Have wanted an OD machine for a while and BB could not speak highly enough of the machine. Give my height restrictions and want for an upgrade the trusty Mignon is off to a new home ( I hope ) or will become the Decaf grinder and the mis...

  8. Rocket Forum
    Well, for the next 17 hours anyway... I decided to upgrade and reluctantly parted with my Alex Duetto - a really lovely machine that has delivered hundreds of enjoyable coffees over the past 4 years. After careful consideration and some hands-on time recently I have opted for the R60V - from...

    Finally went with the ECM Mechanika Profi IV and the Rocket Fausto. Love it. What a nice upgrade from the super automatic I had before. The shots are coming out great but struggling mightily to get the right foam for latte art. Thanks to all on the forum for advice and personal experiences. And...

    Hi Folks, Any recommendations for online suppliers of coffee machines/grinders etc?? Thanks
  12. Coffee Lounge
    First pour after 2 weeks of having no machine on my bench. I popped into Bella Barista to collect my machine after it's service yesterday. My Duetto is 3 1/2 years old, gets well used and abused but still is amazing to pull shots on. It needed a few seals replacing (which is normal for its...

    I might do without the machine for a bit and just use v60 with a coarse grind, it depends how I do on budget. If you had to buy new and needed everything except kettle, v60, and coffee, what would you get instead?
  14. Sold
    Hello everyone I purchased this CBR-1200 roaster from Bella Barista 2 years ago but due to moving house and now renovating, I have rarely had the opportunity to use it. Hence the sale. I have perhaps roasted 25kg on it so it is almost like new. I am looking for £2550 for it (£3695 new)...
  15. Show Off Your Setup
    After some sound advice from forum members and from Marko at Bella Barista, I picked up what I hope will be my last big coffee purchase yesterday. Paired with the EK I picked up from @EricC a few weeks ago, I'm hoping this combo will last me a very long time. Technically it's not quite my...
  16. Sold
    I am selling my 50th birthday present! This is an ECM Mechanika III Profi bought from Bella Barista in 2009. It has given me years of good service, and is in good working condition. I have attached some pictures of the machine, and also some showing scuffs on the nuts where I have undone them...
  17. Rocket Forum
    I think this is going to be my next purchase. I have a Gaggia Classic, which i've had for a couple of years now (since being a member of this board). I'm thinking that the Evo would be a good upgrade which I dont think I'd need to change again for a long time. I like americanos with a drop of...

    Hi all, I have been lurking for around 6 months and joined a couple of months ago so thought I should say hello. I have resisted asking a series of questions whilst buying my kit, learning how to use it and making good coffee. I have to say I have found this forum an invaluable resource...

    Hi I've just found the Forum and joined. I've bought my first serious espresso machine just over a year ago from Bella Barista, a Quickmill Silvano. I also have a Eureka Mignon mill and have been very pleased with both. In the last couple of weeks I've bought a dual boiler machine and am now...
