    Espresso Machines North Brisbane Locations

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hey,

    Looking at upgrading both my machine and grinder, found a couple threads that were a few years old in terms of stores that supply machines but any number of new joints could've popped up since then. Just wondering what my options in terms of stores that do sales in coffee machines? I'm looking at getting roughly an m4d and rocket giotto v2, I don't mind ordering online, I just want to go and get some hands on time with my decisions and feedback about my choices.

    Thanks!
    Corey.

    Hey Corey,
    Did you have any luck with finding someone local? I'm in the exact same boat, in the exact same stranded location..
    Thanks,
    Brad

    Hello guys - I'm in the same position myself - looking for somewhere to have a play with the Giotto or Evoluzione. Choices seem limited in Brisbane....
    I haven't been into Merlo at Bowen Hills in years, so might give that a go.
    I did speak to a seller (not a site sponsor as far as I know) who is based in Salisbury (I think) a month or so ago. Sells a pretty big range of machines. He said he didn't have any set up as demo but was in the process of trying to find a bigger shop location in/around East Brisbane/Woolloongabba so he could do exactly that. He asked me to give him a call in a couple of months to see how his move went. So will keep you updated on that one.

    There's also Di Bella at Bowen Hills and just a quick trip across the Victoria Bridge to West End (not that far away) and Veneziano.
    Both Site Sponsors...

    Corey purchased a Rocket R58 and Macap M4D from us and we are delighted to have him as a client.

    Hope they bring you much pleasure Corey!

    Hey Brad and skidquinn! I checked out CMS in Boondall and looked at their ECM's there; then I went to elixr at Stafford and looked at their rocket, before I decided I wanted the Rocket R58. I then ordered it through Talk Coffee; great products, the beans that came with them... omg... probably will be buying more from them too (Thanks Chris).

    Would recommend them 100%. You won't regret it.

    Save a little more. You could then afford a new one

    Thanks Corey. Did elixir have a demo set up or just display?
    Cheers

    Hey sqidquinn,
    We called Elixer and asked about the rocket. When we went in there, they had set it up for us to play with. I'm not sure what other machines they have available to compare, but they were certainly very helpful.
