    Brisbane Equipment Store

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi CS. *Looking at getting my first machine and grinder. *I am looking at the Nemox Fenice type; I know the Dell Opera/LeLit Combi etc are all similar). *I am also looking at the Rocky Doser.

    I have found them online from the sponsors, but none from the local sponsors. *I value their knowledge and support on CS, but I would like to get my grubby hands on one to play around before parting with my money.

    Are there any known shops that I can walk into and see these items? *I dont mind if one is in one place and one is at another. *I think it would be worth the driving.

    Thanks in advance,
    Ryan

    Re: Brisbane Equipment Store

    Just to update this thread, I purchased a LeLit Combi from Dennis @ Cuppacoffee. *After it got here, enlisted in a local barista course that allowed me to bring the machine in for the training on it. *Have to admit, I was overwhelmed. *Having never made an espresso before, and a new machine to learn on.

    I did learn that the stenciling on the knob to adjust the grinder is wrong! *Gotta love those Italians sense of humor. *Note: watch the numbers on the grinder hopper, not the knob instructions.

    During the course, trying to steam the milk was an issue. *It seemed to run out of steam trying to froth 300ml. *Im sure it is user error, but will continue to investigate.

    As a side note, the instructor was impressed with the little machine and also thinks it is a user/learning issue and that he will most likely get one for home use.

    If anyone wants to check it out, just let me know. *It is not likely to find one in a store around Brisbane so Ill open my home up for inspection...just let me practice more before criticizing my coffees!

    Cheers,
    Ryan
