  • San Marco 100 practical Ed

    I ha we been looking to get a Profitec 700 but the dealer in WA suggested that at that price, approaching $4000 a better buy would be the San Marco 100 Practical E.
    I understand the San Maco has to be plumbed in an a drain fitted.

    Has any snob any comment or experience with the San Marco?
    Thanks Johnd

    Hi John,

    That's the part where they try to hijack the sale and sell you the machine that they import and presumably make a better margin on...

      Too right...

      Pretty sure some CSers will be able to recommend reputable specialist retailers, to whom you could direct your enquiries...

      Mal.

        Went to my local car dealer looking for a porsche. The dealer recommended that with my budget, I'm approaching mack truck territory. Thoughts?

          In Perth preferably...

          I would be unhappy recommending someone buy a machine from another state. I did admittedly buy my grinder from Paul at * **** but there is more to an espresso machine. It is good too to get a hands on with the machine you want to buy and have local help and assistance including annual servicing, if desired.

            Sadly it seems they have the WA distribution for Profitec sewn up. They won't hold any demo or floor stock and just expect you to buy sight unseen. Of course they have plenty of the San Marcos lying around and will do you a 'great' deal. Looks like I'll be getting an ECM or a Rocket instead.

              Supreme Coffee Machines have the ECM in stock and on the bench. They are good to deal with.

              Leaf Bean Machine import Wega machines such as the Mini Nova Classic I bought, directly from Italy. They have demo and floor stock. They roast beans too so worth a trip.

              No CS sponsors in Perth so I hope moderators allow us to talk about what is here in Perth.

              Of course, if you are in Victoria, you are spoilt for choice.

                I'm dropping into Supreme next week to play with the demo ECM Profi IV they just received, really looking forward to it

                    Dimattina in Osborne Park are a sponsor and were in the process of finalising a new showroom last time I was there. Worth a look.

                    Cheers

                      Ok. Never heard of them. I'm surprised they're not in here posting then.

                        Not all sponsors are active on the forums it seems. I don't think they have posted since the cupping posts a few years ago?

                        Dimattina would be good place for a Perth meet up, give people a chance to drool all over the bling machines! Sorry for hijack.

                        Cheers

                          It would be good for us if they took more interest in the forum and would do their business good as well.

                            I was in Dimattina this week. They have quite a lot of machines on display and a cafe which is very popular with the local workers. They also roast. Tried their cap but not that impressed. They have a lot of room.

                              When a company becomes large, it either adds social networking responsibility to a role or it falls by the wayside as people are too busy or it's a waste of time with near zero return.

                              From what I can see, Dimattina's prime presence is via Instagram.

                              CS can take lots of time and perhaps it might be a case of "is it worth it?"...

                              Step one for CS'ers is if you request information via PM or the quote form, have the common courtesy to at least acknowledge replies: most don't.

                              Be specific rather than general in your request and realistic. A quote request for best price on a group seal (and god knows we get them ) gets binned immediately. Similarly a request for gear at under wholesale price (yep them too) also goes to the bin. Generic requests such as Espresso machine are usually also a waste of time in my experience. Other want free consulting because they're planning to start an xyz coffee related business and effectively want can you do all the work for me for nothing?

                              One might think that it's a given, but the reality for sponsors is that 90+% of written communication to quote requests and PMs goes to the void. In our case, if often makes me wonder why I bother. [/rant]
