    !!!SOLD!!! - FOR SALE: BFC/Diadema Junior [VIC]

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hello all, my beautiful BFC Junior is looking for a new home…

    This machine has been absolutely fabulous, I bought it new in 2010 and it's been used and well loved and cared for ever since.

    Condition:
    -Operationally excellent and in great physical condition.
    -A few light marks here and there from general use.
    -The machine just had a full service in March 2015, and I can provide copy of receipt showing the list of service items performed.

    Includes:
    -1 x single spout portifilter (little use)
    -1 x double spout portifilter (never used, maybe once?)
    -1 x naked/bottomless portifilter (matching handle, used this all the time – still looks new)
    -3 x baskets, stock double/single and a blind.
    -1 x spare resin filter

    Price:
    $975

    Collection/Inspection:
    Hoping for a local buyer who can inspect/pickup in person. I’m located in TYABB Vic, about 10 min past Frankston.

    Usage / Maintenance History:
    -Average of ~20 coffees per week.
    -Mostly long blacks and espresso
    -Steaming is sensational; I find it a breeze to texture milk with the 2-hole tip that’s installed.
    -Back flushed every day
    -Chemical back flushed and group head cleaned and brushed weekly.
    -Only ever used filtered water
    -Resin filter frequently changed
    -Shower screen and group seal frequently changed
    -Professionally serviced

    Apart from the usual maintenance items, I've also had the following components replaced over the years:
    -control box in 2013 when auto-fill stopped working.
    -pressure-stat in 2014 when boiler stopped heating.
    -brew switch in 2014, they only had orange at the time, easy to switch for a red one.
    -replaced rubber seat in OPV just recently when it started to get noisy.

    Specs:
    -Heat Exchanger
    -Simultaneous brew and steam
    -Commercial e-61 grouphead
    -Commercial brewing solenoid
    -1.3 litre boiler
    -1300W heating element
    -Internal vibe pump
    -Steam tap valve: rotary commercial soft close
    -Water tap valve: commercial electriovalve
    -Steam arm: flexible ball joint
    -Water outlet: fixed spigot
    -Water reservoir: 3.0 l removable
    -Weight: 27.0 kg
    -Dimensions [w] x [h] x [d]: 270 x 400 x 435
    -Made in Italy
