    rancilio z11 style help

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I'm an absolute novice and inherited an old rancilio z11 style manual machine. I'd love any help with tracking down the manual and guidance on getting started

    We might need more info , do you want help with restoring it, or using it? When you say manual machine, do you mean lever group , or push buttons for making the coffee? Do you have a picture?

    Its not a lever group. This is a picture of a similar machine:

    It has been restored and I need to use it - I'm concerned that I don't know how to clean it, make coffee, know when its hot, that sort of stuff! I have tried the rancilio page and websearching for the manual but can't find anything.

    Google backflushing to clean it.
    Dont worry about descaling for now, but it will need doing soon, or pay someone to do that.
    Its ready to go when portafilters are near too hot to touch.
    Maybe paying for a barista course is a good idea..
