    Hi folks! As the title says, I am between two options: To buy breville barista pro/touch or go with the combination of a separate grinder + espresso machine what speaks for the Breville barista I have a small kitchen (student), so that really speaks for the sage barista...
  2. Retailer Reviews
    Hi, Bit of feedback regarding a recent transaction with Machina Coffee up in Scotland. Ordered an Eureka Mignon Perfetto (white, black panel) and a MoccaMaster KBGT(silver) from them and I couldn't be happier with the service, truly top notch. Could I have got the MoccaMaster slightly...
  3. Barista Skills for the home enthusiast
    Hi all, Wondering if someone could lend a hand! About 3 months ago I bought a Gaggia Classic Pro (2019) and a Eureka Mignon Specialita and have been making daily coffee with a variety of beans to a level that I've been really satisfied with as a beginner. However, I recently bought a new bean...
  4. Eureka Grinders
    I am looking to buy either the Eureka Mignon Silenzio or the Eureka Mignon Specialita as my first grinder to go with a Gaggia Classic. I will be using the grinder for single dosing only. Buying them new means that the Specialita costs around £50 more. I was wondering if there is a big enough...

    Since switching to a Niche Zero and Lelit Bianca, I have not had any use for those two. Both were originally purchased new in 2012. Gaggia Classic come with the MrShades PID, and I've done the OPV mod. It comes with single and double baskets, blind filter, a 58mm Motta tamper, and a pressure...

    Hi, I'm looking at getting into espresso for the first time, upgrading from using a moka pot and whisk for milk. My budget is flexible up to about £700 (could go a little over) and I was wondering what the advantages of buying new are? I've found the Gaggia Classic Pro for 350 and paired with...

  8. Valuations (What's it worth?)
    Found someone who will take this all off my hands. Lives local too so no postage hassle. Assume all in first class condition. From BB but now just out of warranty. Very little usage, all pristine condition and well maintained. Plus original boxes and instructions. Rancilio Silvia new euro...

    I'm splitting off from RooniusMaximus' thread to avoid hijacking it (as that's rather rude) and as the questions I'm asking are not entirely pertinent to his situation, even if not totally dissimilar. Hitherto in my espresso making, I've been using a Delonghi Dedica with unpressurized baskets...
  10. All Grinders & Hand-Grinders
    Hello, I just want to land on a choice for an espresso mainly, but also I would love to get some bold flavor of french press or pour over cups. I guess the best choices for the budget I got now for a grinder is $400-500, are: mahlkonig vario, sette 270, preciso, eureka mignon, rancillio...
  11. All Grinders & Hand-Grinders
    Hi, My current set up is a gaggia classic and iberital mc2. I've had them for about 5 years now and am looking to slowly upgrade to a better set up (possibly a rocket mozzafiato evoluzione r as the espresso machine). I appreciate I wouldn't get the most out of a high end machine with the MC2...

  13. Sold
    For sale due to finding myself short of time for espresso nowadays and moving more towards filter methods. Bought on this forum last October when it was only a month old. Therefore it still has almost 2 years transferable warranty left with Bella Barista. It also has the original packaging and...

    Hi everyone, Long time lurker. Apologies for the samey "please help me choose" thread but I am lost in a sea of burrs. I currently have both a Hario Mini Mill & Iberital MC2. I use the MC2 for espresso, the mini mill for everything else. I'm looking to upgrade and my budget is sub £200...
  15. Sold
    This is a three year old ECM Barista, single boiler with E61 head machine which I bought new from Bella Barista. It had a new control unit replaced under warranty last year, and has been kept in immaculate condition. It's lived in this unit since new, so there's no scratches on the sides. It's a...

    Hi all, here is my new set up; it's a 969.coffee Elba 2, Eureka Mignon grinder, Joe Frex knock out drawer, tamp station and glass tamper. Makes a mean brew that's for sure
  17. All Grinders & Hand-Grinders
    Hi all, Just got myself a Eureka Mignon Silenzio yesterday (lovely piece of machinery), went through the included manual but I couldn't get any specifics on how often I should clean the inside of the grinder. How often do you guys do a shallow cleaning (vacuuming without top plate removal) and...
  18. Sage Forum
    Hello All New user and second thread already - hope no one minds! I am now considering between two options. I only intend to drink espresso and occasionally have a latte / cappuccino - I will not be using a French Press or anything else, just the machine. 1). Duo Temp Pro alongside a Eureka...

    I'm posting this here, as my other thread in the Eureka area is a little dead! (https://coffeeforums.co.uk/showthread.php?43057-Burrs-touching-to-get-a-fine-enough-grind) If you've been following - I've discovered that my Mignon II's burrs don't seem to be parallel. I'm getting a chirp when...
  20. Eureka Grinders
    Bella Barista have advised me to hold off buying a Mignon Mk2 until the new range comes in, which will hopefully be sometime next month (March 2018) They have said that all three will be improvements on the Mk2, and that the cheapest of the three (the "Silenzio") will be just £289. They are...
