This is a complete package which includes the espresso machine with a built in grinder, built in knock drawer (which is made from high quality stainless steel), 2 used (but thoroughly cleaned) milk foaming jugs, a 57mm hand held tamper, milk frothing temperature, cleaning disk and new tub of PulyCaff cleaning detergent powder. It also comes with a used but fairly new high quality water filter so you literally connect it up and start using it straight away! 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 shold be periodically changed has been replaced for brand new! The machine is working perfectly, produces excellent espreso and is completely leak free! It heats up quickly, recovers quickly and runs very efficiently. It is safe and ready to use. The group head has 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 and hot water outlet valves have been replaced with all new seals and gaskets and are working perfectly, opening and shutting off easily. I have fitted the steam wand with a rubber sleeves to allow you to move it freely even when it is hot, to make foaming milk even easier. This machine is quite unique in the fact that it has a commercial grade coffee grinder built into it. It is a Cunhill burr grinder and is working perfectly.
It has also been completely stripped, cleaned and rebuilt. It is perfectly clean (although there will be some small reminants of coffee grinds left beind from when I have tested it) and really easy to use.
I have set the grinder up so that it doses the correct amounts of coffee into the portafilter. One pull of the lever will dispense enough coffee for a single shot (when using the single portafilter) and two pulls of the lever will dispense the right amount for a double shot (when using the double portafilter). It is really easy to use and because it uses commercial burr grinding blades, it grinds the coffee to the right consistancy. It is also completely adjustable and simple to do.
The machine sits on top of stainless steel frame which houses the machines knock drawer. You use this to store your waste coffee pucks after extracting the shot so that everything is kept clean and simple in a nice compact space. It is all working perfectly. It is a really nice set up and as you can see in the video it is all very simple to use and keep clean. The touchpad on the machine has 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 touchpad is very responsive and has 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 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+ cups per day.The steam power on this machine is fantastic. It will happily steam away all day. All you need now is some fresh coffee beans, if you end up picking the machine up and I have some freshly roasted beans in I will give you a bag to get you started. 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. 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.
