    La Cimbali Domus Classic Information?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    hello all

    first post here. I recently bought my parents a Lelit Combi from AF, to replace their old crappy sunbeam beast.
    They are very happy.

    Now I need to replace my own old crappy sunbeam. This combination of the Domus Classic and Sunbeam grinder is an appealing economical (hopefully??) combination.

    I have had a look at cimbalis website, and can find nothing about the domus classic. In fact nothing about any of the domus range.
    The internet seems devoid of manuals for it. I can only find shops selling it and similar domus tronic/dosatron units, but nothing from the manufacturer.

    Anyone have any info/suggestions as to why.

    I dont know why there isnt more info but I have the same combo and its ok for me, though I havent ever tried any other similar machines to compare

    from what I have found

    baskets arent standard, they have a different lip so you cant chop and change
    the steam wand is pretty ordinary and a tad short for my liking
    they are a 500 odd ml alloy boiler

    thats about all I have found from my using one, mine is a tad strange in that when back flushing it nothing ever comes out of the drain tube, until you turn the pump off, not sure if thats normal or not

    Im also after information on the Domus, mainly in relation to what is required to successfully back flash this unit. I have a secondhand classic that arrived manual-ess so Im flying a little blind at the moment. Id be interested in knowing more of your cleaning experiences Sunbeamer :)

    Perfectly normal as the solenoid valve doesnt activate until the pump is turned off. It is there to relieve pressure on the system once brewing is finished - ie. once pump is turned off - so as to avoid the portafilter sneeze [ http://www.coffeegeek.com/opinions/markprince/07-20-2004#15 ] and coffee oils backing up to the to the boiler etc.
