    I'm putting my Piccino up for sale as upgradeitis is getting a hold on me. The good: Amazingly small for a DB machine. My kitchen is tiny and this doesn't take up much space. Fed Ashbeck/Volvic its entire life (I bought it a few years ago on this forum for £420) Totally reliable, produces...

    Nesbet's have a reconditioned machine for £450 delivered. It says it's been fully tested and in full working order with no more than light cosmetic signs of wear and tear. Is it worth paying the extra £165 for a brand new one?

    Anyone else noticed how cheap and nasty the handles are on the portafilters? Pity really as the quality of the rest of the machine is excellent.

    Anyone have any experience or words of wisdom over these two grinders? With so many going for MC2 as a decent entry level I feel pulled in that direction - just wondering why so many go for the MC2 when these two seem on paper to quite similar

    Hi there coffee people, Found you when Googling a Fracino Piccino ~ and yes you had comments and feedback and yes I've bought one ~ so thanks. I was looking at an Iberital all-in-one machine but nobody knows about them and they're certainly not built in B'ham! It isn't the best maker in the...
