    For sale from the Farnborough (Hampshire/Surrey/Berkshire borders) area, sorry but personal collection only, no couriers. I'm selling my Fracino Cherub because I've upgraded to a Lelit Bianca. I have owned it since new. I'm selling it with a few accessories including: Original box (not...

  3. Sold
    Bought from this very forum, in 2016. He was two years old then, so by my calculations that makes him 6. Ah bless. These are commercial grade machines that are built like tanks - it has recently been serviced by Fracino who marvelled at the condition and said 'these aren't usually meant for...

    Hi everyone, I've been lurking for a while, the community in general has been really useful in my coffee journey so far! I recently bought a Sage Barista Express, while it's a really good machine and makes a nice espresso (after some tweaking!) it's only 4 months old and already broken. I...

    I just started descaling my cherub as I thought my problem was likely to be caused by loose scale. But I noticed that when I filled the water tank with descaler and switched on to fill the boiler, it aborted with the low water alarm. Now, this is not unusual - in the past it has always timed...

    Hi all I finally decide to get an engineer out to service and repair my Cherub, which I bought new in January 2014. I contacted Francino to get an engineer out, I couldn't travel to Brum and stay with it. When I gave them the serial number they said it was 6 years old and they could only...

    Hi, I'm after a bit of advice about my Cherub. It has been out of action for a few months while I moved house. When I finally got round to sorting the machine out and making my first coffee I found that no water would come out of the group head. The steam wand and hot water tap work fine, and...

    Mazzer Mini (£100). I believe this is a 2011 model (based on serial number as photographed). It's been modded as photographed (I did not perform them so not sure what they are. I think there is a sweeper mod + whatever has been done to the middle.). Gaggia Classic (£100). This is one of the...

    Afternoon all, long time since I've posted or commented but that's another story. Always great to catch on the discussion here in those fleeting moments Anyhow does anyone have any good recommendations for getting a Cherub serviced in London (ideally SW)? I'm not keen to send it back to Fracino...

    Hey all, I know there is plenty of discussion on Citric Acid previously and have looked at these, however, just want to see if people had any direct recommendations. There are loads of variants and versions of this on eBay etc, however, none of which have any real info on concentrations. So...

    Hey all, I recently purchased a Cherub off the forum. Its in great condition and no issues with the machine itself. It had an aftermarket Bottomless/naked PF with it which ive been using to gauge flow etc. The coffee when using this with either the 15g VST basket or Espresso parts HQ double...

    My 4 Year old Cherub has overheated a couple of times in the last few months, presumably setting off the pressure relief valve. Does it maybe need a service? Gaz

    Hi all I tried to make my first shot using the 18g VST basket in my Cherub using the standard Cherub portafilter. However adding 17g of beans into basket and tamping did not work as it would not lock into the group head. Was very tight to even try and close. Is this a known issue? I can max...

    Hi I just got a new Cherub and its my first HX machine so was wondering is it normal for the heating element to constantly go on and off? I turned it on this morning 30 mins ago and at first it was turning it on and off every 30 - 60 seconds and now its doing it every 1-2 mins. I would assume...

    Hi all Merry Christmas! I can get a new cherub for 850 with finance agreement but leaning towards expobar office leva for 950 but no finance. Would the e61 on leva make big difference worth extra money? Or is it generally better machine?
  19. Fracino Forum
    Totally love my new Cherub. One thing I have noticed though is that the spent pucks are soaking wet. My old Gaggia Classic left them bone dry, and they went straight into the knock box, leaving the basket as clean as a whistle. Now I am left with a soggy mess each time, and have to wash the...

    I have owned my new Cherub (courtesy of the ever resourceful Andy) for a few months now. Utterly fabulous machine. So different from my old Gaggia Classic. Worlds apart. Having a heat exchanger is just so much quicker, and more consistent, as you will know of course. But even little features...
