    Lightbulb FS: Quaha Napoletana Serie II and accessories (SE Melb)

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

    Up for sale is pretty much a quality beginner espresso bundle. Everything you need except the beans!

    This used to be my work setup after the office machine died. (Small office, just me using it to make coffees mostly for myself). Then when that job ended I brought it home where I've been using it the past few months while procrastinating on refurbishing my Silvia's steam wand. So today I finally did that and gave this machine a clean.

    Quaha Napoletana series II - built in grinder
    1x double shot basket - which I always used for my latte's
    1x single shot basket
    1x silicone puck for back flushing
    1x metal tamp
    1x coffee parts rubber tamp mat
    1x coffee parts milk thermometer
    1x Incasa SS small milk jug
    1x Grindenstein knock box
    1x group cleaning brush
    and about a half cup of Cafetto EVO Espresso Machine Cleaner and a set of machine instructions I printed out (Nemox Caffe Dell 'Opera version).

    Looking for $225 and pickup from Beaumaris 3193

    Cheers!
    Dan

    This was my first shinny machine (in the lelit brand) and I still have it after 15 years. It is now my "spare machine" for when my daily driver is being serviced or repaired.
    I am always amazed at the coffee it makes when I dust of the cobwebs, even though it is a little more involved to steam milk. It is so forgiving to get a good shot and all in such a small package. This would be an ideal machine (and at a great price) for someone looking to start making great coffee at home without wanting to invest big bucks. Good luck with the sale. I am almost tempted to buy it for spares but my collection is already excessive.

    It really is a great machine hey. I found it quite comparable to my Silvia and Breville grinder combination, so much so that I really was in no rush to reassemble the Silvia's steam wand and get it back into service. I even neglected the Breville grinder for espresso grinds while this guy was in service, the built in grinder does quite a good job. It was handy not having to change between espresso and cold brew grinds and having a dedicated grinder for each. haha.

    They're a great build quality and should last a new owner many years to come.

    I had the Nemox version as my first “real” machine. So simple and capable.

    Yep, me too. Great little machine that produced some of the best coffee I've ever had after updating it with a PID Controller and a couple more little tricks...

    I found it made awesome coffee without a PID although it was on the wish list. What were the tricks Mal?

    Cheers

    Certainly...

    Insulating the Boiler was the main one, I also sited the Temp.Sensor close to the cold water inflow which then allowed the PID Controller to behave in an almost "feed forward" manner in that the instant the shot was started so too did the PID Controller sense an immediate drop in temperature and kicked the boiler On.

    Took a little bit of fiddling to get the parameters working smoothly but in the end, worked terrifically well. Back to back shots were an absolute breeze with the boiler maintaining the setpoint within +/- 0.second crack and water temp. delivered to the top of the puck within a 1.0C envelope. Was a fun little project...

    Couldn't even maintain that with our recent Diadema Junior Extra Dbl Boiler with PID Control.
