The group head, boiler and all the valves have also been fully descaled, rinsed and cleaned before being reassembled. The boilers heating element has also been completely descaled and is in top working condition.Limescale is the arch enemy of all espresso machines. It generally builds up within a machines boiler and pipework so it is very hard to detect unless you can get a good look inside. Some tell tale signs of bad scale are white'furring' around the joints amd if the machine is generally running slow. Water should flow freely from the grouphead at a good rate, and the machine should heat up quickly. You should also have good quality'dry' steam from teh steam wands, if you are not getting all of this then the machine you are looking at could well have limescale inside. A machine with bad scale damage will run slowly, run less efficient and produce poor espresso.
It will also be dangerous as the scale can cause important safety features to stop working properly! So that is the reason that ALL of my machines are completely descaled, regardless of what condition they are in when they come in.
But rest assured this machine has been done properly and is working perfectly as the video shows. During reassembly all the the parts have been put back together using all brand new O rings, seals, rubber gaskets, filters etc etc. Basically anything that wears and shold be periodically changed has been replaced for brand new! The machine is working perfectly, produces excellent espresso and is completely leak free! It heats up quickly, recovers quickly and runs very efficiently.It is safe and ready to use. The group heads have been rebuilt with all new seals and gaskets. It runs really nicely and the water flows from it evenly and freely.
It is a very quiet machine, even when the pump is running. The steam wand valves have been replaced with all new seals and gaskets and are working perfectly, opening and shutting off easily. I have fitted the steam wands with brand new rubber sleeves to allow you to move it freely even when it is hot, to make foaming milk even easier.
I have replaced the steam wand for a brand new teflon coated steam wand. The beauty of this steam wand is that it does not get hot when it is being used so you can easily and safely move it without getting burnt. It also stops the milk from sticking to it as much whihc it makes it much more hygenic. The touchpads on the machine have been programmed by myself to deliver the'standard' dosages.
It is very simple but there is no need to do it unless you specifically want to. The touchpads are very responsive and have very little wear on it. It is common to find coffee machines with one specific button that has been used the majority of the time which causes it to wear and means you really have to press hard for it to work.
But ALL the buttons on this touchpads are perfect and respond to a very light touch from the user. The machine is aimed at someone with limited space but still wants the benefit of a high quality, commercial grade espresso machine, which will be capable of producing 150+ cups per day. The steam power on this machine is fantastic. It will happily steam away all day.
The machine only requires an everyday 13amp electric socket so there is no fancy three phase or anything like that to worry about. It will require connecting to a mains water connection (same as your washing machine at home) and it comes with all the necessary fittings to get it quickly connected. Included in the sale is a matching Expobar commercial grade coffee grinder. The grinder has also been stripped downa dn given a deep clean and is in great condition both cosmetically and commercially. It is very important to have a good quality grinder in conjunction with a decent coffee machine.I have also included a stainless steel knock drawer which you will use to discard of your coffee pucks after each extraction. This is also in good condition and completes the set nicely.
I have also put together a cleaning kit so that you can keep the machine clean and well maintained. Included in this is a tub of PulyCaff cleaning powder, a cleaning blank plate to backflush the machine with, and two cleaning brushes, one for the group heads and one for the steam wands. If it is looked after and serviced regular then it will go on working perfectly for many years to come. Parts for these machine are very easily to come across and readily available. If you are local to me I can contine to maintain and service this machine for you.
The machine comes with two portafilter handles, a double portafilter and a single portafilter. I will also include a blank cleaning plate as well so that you are able to regularly back flush the machine and keep it clean.The panels on this machine are in very good condition. There is small scratches and blemishes here and there but overall I would rate it is very good. The pictures speak for themselves and are a true reflection of the machines condition.
I would love you to come and inspect the machine, have a play with it and make sure that it what you are looking for. I can give you full training if you are new to espresso machines, I can show you how to use and clean the machine, and how to create different drinks. I don't delve into other commercial catering equipment, I specialise in coffee machines. You are welcome to view the machine anytime at my workshop which is located in between Leeds and Doncaster, postcode is DN14 0RX.
The machine will be wrapped properly and get to you safely. I use a very good courier who I have never had any issues with. The machine is of course open for you to collect youself, infact I would prefer this as it gives me an opportunity to demonstrate the machine to you and run through any questions you may have, however I fully appreciate this isnt always possible for people who are living at the other end of the country.
If anything did occur through no fault of your own within a reasonable time I would have no problems posting out replacement parts. Thank you so much for taking the time to read through this listing, I hope I havent bored you too much. Again if there is anything you would like to discuss, please contact me asap. Many many more pics, videos available, please just just ask.
