    Need to replace Spidem auto advice please?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hello we have two Spidem auto machines with double boiler (sorry cant recall the model) that are now at least 7 years old. One has died. Budget is an issue so like to spend <$1,000 and would be happy with a semi-automatic.
    Seen the Nemox Dell Opera given good reviews and maybe the Breville Fresca Espresso - now seen you all talk about the Lelit combi -. Comments on any of these machines greatly appreciated AND where can I see/purchase in Adelaide??

    Cheers
    Jenny

    Hi Jenny.

    The Nemox and the Lelit are the same machine branded under different names. Have also been sold as the Quaha Napoletana II (as well as other names). All are made in the same factory in Italy.

    For your budget I would highly recommend this machine. Unfortunately I dont think theres anyone in Adelaide who sells it. I have a Napoletana which is now 5-6 years old but still going strong which youre welcome to play with.

    Hi jenny,

    Ill echo Caffeine Junky as to machines.

    Try both Coffee Craft (south) or The Coffee Barun (north). Im sure either will help even if they dont have the machine in stock. Simply Coffee (central) has a reasonable selection as well.

    Careful Greg, youll get slapped on the wrist for mentioning non-sponsors ::)

    Coffee Craft have this special below on. Dont know much about this machine as its relatively new. Cant even find out how big the boiler is. Im sure Basil and the rest of the very knowledgeable staff at the store can answer every question though.

    Thank you all so much for your advice - so quick! Will look further for the Nemox I think.
