    This is the LR with built in Digital Pre-infusion Module. The machine was bought new by the previous owner in May 2019 and I took ownership in April 2020. I have only ever used filtered, soft Scottish water through it, I make two doubles a day with the occasional milk drink and sometimes I like...

    So after nearly a week with the leva, and running it side by side with the Lelit Bianca here are a few of my initial thoughts. Ill compare it to some of the machines I’ve had in the past, which is only natural and this will draw comparison to the londinium machines I’ve owned. So where do these...

    Hi all, as a newbie (does that status still apply ?) i'm curious, should i mount my portafilter at night or will the rubber get manky ?

    You can't move round here for people raving about the Londinium. But I'm interested in what people don't like about it. I think I might need one, in as much as I'd like to try a lever, and I'd appreciate being able to get users opinions, as I don't think there are many options.

    Original genuine Londinium double spout portafilter that I bough together with my LR, November 2017. I no longer split shots into singles, so only NPF is in use. DS PF is in perfect shape. Supplied with standard 16g LR basket. 50 GBP + shipping cost.

    Note to mods. Im not sure where to post this or if it is even allowed, would you please move it/delete it as appropriate. Fitting Londinium's own rubber piston seals can be a right pain. It is possible to fit them without a special tool with a bit of improvisation, but the seals are expensive...

    The R120 bought on this forum is now up and running. A new Mythos One CP made its debut as well. Initially had an EK43 single dosing with preweighed tins, which was replaced with the R120. The E10 works with the Vesuvius, the R120 the L1. For better workflow, got the Mythos with the R120 now...

    My Londinium R has an issue with the anti-vac valve not sealing. Reiss has advised to remove it to see what the issue is. He has said to loosen by hitting the 17mm spanner with a hammer. I have given it a go as hard as I dare with no joy. Reiss has said to hit it harder. I don't suppose their...

    Just thought I'd share some info here. We can add the bumph about the piston here too @Snakehips I am about to get my piston out and will take some pics on the way

    I feel like I should start off by saying this is not a review. Rather just my thoughts on the machine and what I think the pros and cons are. And a little bit about my journey to this point. **I realised after writing this that I do go on quite a bit, apologies in advance A little background...
  11. Sold
    If anyone is in the market for an L1, I am the second owner of one that was built 12/15 and that I have run on Volvic. Seals were replaced about 6 months ago. It runs off its water tank (not plumbed in). I'm looking for £1400 which will include 2 bottomless portafilters and a Londinium tamper...

    I've been watching the development of the Decent espresso machine with interest. Looking at the graphs of flow and pressure it occured to me that on an LR if you require a shot of about 34g the lever will only be about half way through its travel, meaning that the pressure at the end of the shot...

    Hi all. I've been after a Londinium now since they first appeared but I've never really been able to justify the expense, so it's always been on the back burner. It's got to the point now however, where I need to either start to save or forget about it and stick with what I have long term. My...

    Hi everyone So as some of you may have seen I've been on the lookout for a londinium R. Unfortunately none have come up yet so I've been psyching myself up to buy a new one. Now there have been a few L1 machines for sale on here for around £1400-1500 and I was wondering am I going to spending...
  15. Lever Forum
    I recently bought an original L1 on the forum. Unfortunately moving it from place to place resulted in the OPV valve giving up and restricting water getting to the boiler. Reiss supplied a new trombone pipe which solved the issue although not before I had removed the boiler, heat exchange pipe...

    Just bought a plumbed original L1 on this forum to add to my Vesuvius and Ponte Vecchio Lusso and am in the process of getting to the best basket / dose combination. On my Vesuvius, I dose 18g in an 18g VST basket. When I do the nickel test (or 5p) the dose leaves the correct impression at...

    I've studied this machine for some time before pulling the trigger recently and watched many videos. Things got off to a great start but this morning I struggled to get enough water through the group. The pump seems to be operating normally and the preinfusion seems normal. After releasing the...

    I bought a Rocket R58 with the intention of plumbing it in to enable line pressure preinfusion but getting water to the location is looking very difficult. With normal E61 preinfusion it is creating good shots but the tiny drip tray annoys me and I have read lots of good stuff on here about the...

    What is the consensus on the best basket to use if you wanted to dose 8-10g in a Londinium (or is it heresy to deviate from the suggested 16g?)
  20. Sold
    I need to raise some funds for my other expensive hobby (technical diving if anyone is interested! And I am also increasingly drinking brewed coffee, so my Londinium setup is on the way and I am going to get a Behmor instead. Londinium 1 - the original and best version. This one is plumbed...
