I have to start off by saying this machine is in amazing condition, both cosmetically and mechanically.It is a perfect machine for anyone who is completely new to the wonderful world of coffee or for someone who is a seasoned barista! This is a commercial grade machine with all the expert features you would expect to find and comes complete ready to go! I will go into more detail further on in the description, but to give you the jist the machine has been completely stripped down, descaled, cleaned and rebuilt. Every single perishable part ie seal, gasket, O rings etc have been replaced with brand new regardless of condition and also alot of the main components have been replaced with brand new. The groupheads have been raised up to allow you to fit tall takeaway cups underneath which is great if you ar eplanning on serving takeaway coffee.
There is also a stainless steel cup tray that can be used under either group head to allow you to sit cups on to bring them closer to the group head. The machine itself has been completely stripped down to a bare frame and rebuilt. Every single piece of the machine has been removed, cleaned and reassembled. All perishable parts have been replaced for brand new regardless of original condition and any parts which were starting to fail have been replaced with brand new! The overall result is a machine in top working condition ready to give years of quality service producing excellent drinks!
So the machine was stripped down to its bare frame and steam cleaned. The frame is in excellent condition and has no signs of damage or rust or anything like that. All the pipe work on the machine was deassembled and descaled in our specially formulated solution. 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 should 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.They run really nicely and the water flows from them 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. The steam wands are fitted with a rubber sleeve to allow you to move them freely even when they are hot, to make foaming milk even easier.
The steam wands have also been fitted with brand new rubber sleeves so that they can be easily moved around and touched during use without burning your fingers. 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 buttons respond to light touches from the user and are in great condition. The groupheads can also be controlled by a manual rocker switch to turn them on and off.
The idea of this is that if a fault should ever occur with the control board on the machine, you will still be able to use it in manual mode until a repair is carried out allowing you to continue to serve coffee and reduce down time of the machine. Expobar are a UK based company and so parts for these machines are very easy to source and fit. Any espresso service engineer will be more than familiar with these machines and will have no problems carrying out annual maintenace or repairs.It will need connecting to a mains water supply (same as you would a washing machine at home) and also only requires an everyday 13amp plug so there is no need for any hard wiring or expensive three phase etc. It is simply a plug and play machine. The machine is aimed at someone who is looking to produce top quality coffee and will be able to easily produce 200+ cups per day.
It is a very simple machine to use. There is nothing over complicated about it. Alot of machines these days have more features than a top of the range car, where as this machine concentrates on doing its main job properly which is making excellent quality consistant espresso.The steam power on this machine is great. It will happily steam away all day. The hot water spout works in the exact same way as the steam wand, the valve has also been completley stripped and rebuilt with all new seals etc.
The hot water comes directly from the boiler and is perfect for making tea, americano coffee, hot chocolate etc. 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 portafilters, a double and a single. I can supply extras if you wish.As you can see on the picture the group heads are in immaculate clean condition, and has been fitted with all brand new seals, gaskets, O rings, filters and shower screens. The panels on this machine are in great condition. There is small scratches and blemishes here and there but nothing that stands out or makes the machine look ruined. 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.
It looks amazing and performs just as well. You will not be dissappointed in this machine, there is absolutely nothing to hide and any inspection is more than welcome at any time!
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 you are completley new to espresso machines i have absolutely no problems at all in giving you full training on the machine.
I can show you how to make espresso, latte and cappuccino. I will be able to show you how to correctly foam the milk and also how to correctly clean and maintain the machine. Thank you so much for taking the time to read through this listing, I hope I havent bored you too much.Many many more pics, videos available, please just just ask. Please also see my other listings as I have a quality coffee grinder which will accomodate this machine perfectly!
