  1. Coffee Beans
    I would appreciate some recomendation I have recently been really enjoying Rio Magdalena from the Foundary and I would like to sample some other roasters, as I have taken my inspiration from the roaster challenge. In terms of taste I love the chocolate and caramel favours, also I have recently...
  2. Sold
    So, I unfortunately need to sell this as I'm moving in with the other half and she already has a Rocket which she isn't keen to swap. So, I am selling my much loved and cared for Fracino cherub. This machine was originally purchased from Peter at Espresso Underground in 2012 by @fatboyslim who...

    We have an outdoor cafe attached to our bike shop. It's not insulated and so, as winter approaches, the night-time temperature is starting to dip below freezing inside the cafe! Could anyone give me advice regarding our Fracino Cherub machine as I understand it could potentially be damaged if...

    Hi all, I would appreciate some help or if other people have experienced this same issue, this morning while making my coffee during the initial pressure build up I notice that the portafilter was moving i.e. trying to unlock itself now the movement was on about 5mm but this was enough movement...
  5. Introductions
    Hi Coffee Forums and its members, I am new to the forum and have used insights and wisdom on the threads for many years. I have had 3 happy years using a Delonghi Dedica that was a wedding gift. Over the years I have craved more control over the espresso and lattes that I make at home for...
  6. Show Off Your Setup
    This new set up is providing me with a near-constant supply of quality coffee and saving me a great deal of money on visits to the cafe. The Cherub (and milk jug) were kindly supplied by @coffeebean for very competitive prices.
  7. Sold
    For Sale - Fracino Cherub, in Stainless Steel I bought the machine new in December 2013, have used it exclusively with bottled water (Tesco Ashbeck) and descaled and backflushed regularly (though it is probably due a descale about now, tbh). It has not been heavily used, probably averaging 4-8...
  8. Fracino Forum
    Hi everyone, I'm a newbie at an early stage of his coffee journey, learning a lot from the forum - which has made me aware of the urgent need to upgrade my espresso machine* (currently a cheap model from a discount retailer). Reading around, I like the sound of an HX machine such as the...
  9. Sold
    Having bought Jon's Rocket last week, it's time for me to sell my Cherub. This is one of the early models but is a fantastic entry in to HX machines. Mechanically it's in excellent condition, working perfectly with no known faults or issues. I recently dismantled it having had what transpired...
  10. Introductions
    Hi all! I bought my first serious espresso machine, Cherub. I was on a low budget pressurized portafilter "espresso machine" earlier for a few years, but then it stopped heating. So it was time for a new one. First I did not want to spend too much on new machine, but later saw that this is...
  11. Valuations (What's it worth?)
    Thinking of selling my Cherub due to moving house soon and lack of use. It was manufactured March 2013 and I bought it from a forum member in November 2014. Whilst I have had it I have only really used it once or twice on weekends and always used filtered water, back-flushed regularly and...

    Hi Long time lurker first time poster. I was looking for some sage advice as I have opened a bit of a budget rabbit hole....... I have been coming to the forums and reading advice and reading reviews, I started looking for a grinder I currently have a Ascaso Dream with a a standard blade...
  13. Fracino Forum
    Hi. I'm thinking to upgrade my Gaggia Classic. My first choice was Fracino Cherub, but suddenly I found this one on ebay: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/La-Scala-Butterfly-Cappuccino-Machine-Professional-Tested-and-Working-/112139579262?hash=item1a1c0a2f7e:g:vKwAAOSwTA9X3VRz Does anyone know...

    Looks like a reasonable price subject to conditon being as described http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fracino-Cherub-Espresso-/262367353080?hash=item3d165018f8:g:53gAAOSwGOxXARGw
  15. eBay Auction and Gumtree Links
    https://www.gumtree.com/p/other-miscellaneous-goods/fracino-cherub-coffee-espresso-machine/1159280692 Tempting, but still too big for what I'm after. Hopefully it will interest someone else here.
  16. eBay Auction and Gumtree Links
    http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Coffee-Machine-Plus-Whole-Kit-Grinder-Knock-Out-Box-Etc-/231831408016 Interesting package. It may include a tamper (or is it Tapper?) and I really don't agree with his choice of grinder! Possibly a bargain for someone if they want to monitor it, but its just too big and...
  17. Technical | Faults | How-to's
    My Cherub has develouped a fault. It's still giving hot water and steam, and as far as I can tell the boiler is still being filled from the water tank. However when I turn turn it on the pump just makes a laboured noise and no water comes through the group. Any idea what the best 'next step'...

    http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&alt=web&id=251886565762 £260 ONO. Seems like a decent deal, sounds like it needs a bit of work though.
  19. Coffee Accessories
    I'm quite pleased with the results I get from my modded Classic, though I think I've really pushed it about as far as it can go. I don't really do milky drinks (which is probably just as well) though Mrs.urpert wouldn't object if my next machine was better at steaming milk. Most of what I drink...
  20. Technical | Faults | How-to's
    Hi all, I'm currently in a bit of a state over the £500 used Cherub that's just arrived today - after having it turned on for an hour it's still stone cold. The pump is working fine, though no movement in the pressure gauge and any water pumped through the group is also cold. To say I...
