    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...

    Hi all, I'm looking at getting a new grinder for V60 and aeropress. I've got my eye on the Wilfa grinder, but had a quick look on ebay and see there are quite a number of second commercial grade grinders (they seem to be primarily espresso). Would I be better off with the former or splurging on...

    Have been eyeing up a gaggia classic from 2005 I know the older models (pre-2015) are considered better than the new version but should I have any concerns about buying a machine which is getting on for 15 years old? thanks

    So the Oracle experience didn't last long/go well as it seems it was faulty, so for a few reasons I have chosen to take a refund and begin searching for a manual machine. I have backed the Niche Zero so my plan is to research and source a good second hand machine to pair with that when it is...
  6. Mazzer Grinders
    Hi, there is a seller near me that is selling both a SJ & Major that are 5 years old and asking £260 & £275 respectively. The Major has had new burrs fitted but doesn't feature a drip tray and the SJ burrs are about a year old. Both say they've been used at home for the last year and both...

    Hi all, I'm looking to upgrade form my Krups GVX2 and after quite a bit of reading I'm concluding that if the ideal home grinder exists, it's not available until next summer. That said, I want to get something sorted sooner, and at the moment I'm leaning towards finding a secondhand Super...
  8. Fracino Forum
    Hi. I have seen a used Cherub for sale for £575.00. Is this a good price? It has the Fracino half century badge (1963-2013), so one assumes it is 4 years old max. Just to explain, I have a Gaggia Classic, and was wanting to upgrade to a Heat Exchange machine, mainly to get consistency when...

    So I'm going to buy a Fracino Little Gem, used (working) but 1 year of no use. What should I test and inspect? Water running through group head? Steam wand provides powerful dry steam? Aesthetic damage, and functions as expected? Any way to tell if the machine is past it's best, not worth...

    Hi All, looking to get my first grinder and machine, fairly modest budget but hopefully enough to get something I won't want to replace in 6 months. I have an aeropress, cafetiere and my flatmate has a cheap delonghi espresso machine, so my plan is to buy a grinder then use what I have and save...

    Hi, After a good friend came round and tried my espresso, I have him converted and he now wants a setup like mine. As my Gaggia Classic is a few years old I have no idea where to go but he wants a new one for the lowest price. Cheapest I've seen is £300 but his budget is £200-£250 and he...
