    VBM Domobar Super Lever - Thanks Chris...its a beauty!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    After having many problems with my last $2000 + espresso machine, Chris from Talk Coffee came to my rescue.

    He sold me the original machine, and when I ultimately reached the point where I wanted to toss it off a high building and watch it slam into the concrete and break into a million pieces, he convinced me not to.

    Instead: he took back the old machine, restored it completely, sold it and gave me the proceeds (less parts) AND sold me a VBM Domobar at a great price. He really looked after me and I can highly recommend Chris and the VBM.

    My new machine is built like the proverbial brick dunny. Solid as a rock. Yes...its expensive...but you wont regret stretching the budget a bit. It occupies a slightly bigger footprint, but it holds lots more water in its tank.

    Its relatively easy to care for, and more importantly, chugs out a God Shot every time. It took me about 5 goes to learn what sort of grind and dose it likes. I made flat whites for 12 people last weekend and the last was every bit as good as the first. It texturises (?) the milk really fast and I always have lovely creamy microfoam. I have no real criticisms of this machine.

    Thanks for looking after me Chris. Your a legend! ;D

    Thank you for your very kind words Meaty0,

    I am glad that your upgraditis has been cured for the moment and you will be pleased that your old machine is in the home of a fellow CSer and much-loved...

    Alls well that ends well. Just dont look at any GS/3 pix! ;)

    Chris

    Hi Meaty

    If Im the recipient of your old baby (taking a real guess), Im absolutely having a ball with it and absolutely adore it, so thank you for having so many problems and giving it up for re-adoption!

    Good luck with your new machine - feel free to post up some pictures and give us the run down.

    Cheers
    Di

    I LOOKED! The GS/3 is a gorgeous piece of coffee-pumpin metal...but my love affair with the VBM is deepening :)

    HOWEVER...my daughter, who works in a coffee shop here in Brisbane, just came home and said the owner is selling his "spare" San Marco two group head machine. Its had little use and is beautiful.

    Poverty, here I come! ;D
