    Where to after a Bacchi?

    We are on our second Bacchi espresso maker and it looks like this one isn't going to stand the test of time either.

    My husband loves his single origin double espressos which are so hard to find in the cafes near us so where to from here? I don't drink coffee but i know he loves the process of the bacchi and i've no idea what to look for that may last a little longer but produce good results. We already have a grinder.

    Thanks

    How much can you spend? Do you need to also be able to make milk drinks? Will you use it for entertaining or just for your husband?

    No milk is ever used in the making of his coffee

    Entertaining isn't really necessary so it's really only for him.

    the flair espresso lever machine is cheap, easy to use and clean, and pulls amazing shots. i mostly drink filter, but every now and then i want a single origin shot.

    What is it that is actually failing on the Bacchi? I'm interested as I only use mine when I go away.

    I'm not sure exactly what the problem is. Something to do with it leaking so it doesn't hiss like it should which means he has to time it. The first one the bottom somehow warped despite using it how it says.

    Sorry i didn't answer about price as I'm not really sure. Similar to the bacchi or possibly a bit more.

    The flair is exceptional and probably unbeatable for similar money to your current device.

    I have to say it looks pretty impressive. I'll look more into it and hopefully make a purchase.

    The Rossa PG Air will make excellent shots every time. Highly recommended. If you have the grinder all you need are beans and a boiling jug.
    Better shots, easier and more reliable than the Bacchi. I have both so speaking from experience.
    There is a Rossa HC for sale on CS at the moment which is an absolute bargain and it will also make excellent shots once you are familiar with it. I cannot believe it was not snapped up in the 1st hour
    samuellaw178 and Otago like this.

    Fair enough, I've just made sure that mine has sufficient water and lubricate the seals with Inox and it's done exceptionally well, but I could just be lucky. Do you use it on a gas hob or something else? If you ever want to sell the old ones for parts PM me.
