    Coffee maker retailers in China - Xiamen

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hello Coffeesnobs

    Im alessandro and Ive just started reading your interesting discussions on coffee brewing techniques and equipments

    Im a Italian expat and Ive been living in Xiamen China for 4 months and plan to stay other 2 or 3 years

    as any Italian would do, after 4 months here I start missing my espressos, so I do need to buy a coffee maker asap! Do any of you know where in China I can buy a maker like Silvia ? I saw lots of Rancilio in coffe shops in Xiamen, even some Victoria Arduino and La Cimbali, so there must be also the retailers somewhere...

    thanks in advance for any help

    Hi and welcome Alessandro

    Ive only travelled to Yunnan which is the heart of the coffee growing region in China. I saw one dedicated coffee-equipment shop in Dali (old town) so I imagine there would be others in other cities. The shop sold a range of devices, most seemed to be of Chinese manufacture and unknown quality. But the guest house where I stayed in Dali used a made-in-China machine and was quite drinkable but they were using freshly roasted Yunnan coffee. I couldnt tell you the brand of the machine.

    You might want to send a PM to Coffee Snob Epic 76 who lives in HK. He may provide some "local knowledge" advice.
