I have to start off by saying this machine is in great condition, both cosmetically and mechanically. It is a perfect machine for anyone who is completely new to the wonderful world of coffee, wether that be a home enthusiast or someone who is setting up a cafe/coffee shop, tearoom etc.
This is a commercial grade machine 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. 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. All the pipe work on the machine was deassembled and descaled in our specially formulated solution.
The group heads, 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. The picture shows the inners of the clean scale free boiler and also a nice clean scale free heating element. 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.They run really nicely and the water flows from them evenly and freely. The main control board on this machine has also been sent off and refurbished. Control boards control the entire machine and if they fail can be quite expensive. The board on this machine has been sent to a speacialist who has renewed all the main components on it with brand new. This should give some reassurances that the board isnt going to go in a few years time.
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 valves themselves use a lever as opposed to a steam knob. These levers are so much easier to use and give you steam instantly on and off.
People can sometimes be unsure when using the steam knobs as to how far to open them and how much steam they should let out, but with this lever system all that is taken away and you simply push it up to open it and you can start to instantly steam your milk. 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 no wear on them obviously as they are brand new. 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 touchpad 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 150-200 cups per day. The machines group heads have been fitted with brand new solenoid valves.
These are a serviceable part which are to be replaced every 3-4 years. This means that the group heads are leak free and open and close perfectly when making coffee. Everything else on the machine is working very well and will do for some years to come. The heating element has been correctly tested and is very strong, as is the machines touchpad. If the worst was to happen and something fail, then parts for these machines are very readily available and very competetively priced.
There are thousands of these machines in circulation throughout the UK, and this is mainly because of there reliability and durability. All the machines panels can be taken off in less than a minute allowing an engieer to quickly locate all parts. Spaziale are a well renowned Spanish company, and have a UK office based here in the UK - Chesterfield to be exact.
This means parts for the Spaziale are so easy to get hold of and very fairly priced. 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 fantastic.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. 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.
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. The group heads are in great 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 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 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.
