  • Recommend an E61 machine

    Hi all,
    Im trying to help out a friend with his next machine.
    Can anyone recommend a classic style E61 HX machine to fit in with his budget of approx $1500.
    He likes the look of the Domobar Picolo but says a bit too small & worried about waiting for the machine to reheat between shots, also likes the features of the Breville BES900 but not so keen on the machine itself.

    E61 single boilers (Piccolo included) generally dont need any time to reheat in between shots,

        For making a couple of milky coffees at a time, its great. Steam pressure is strong too - higher than most HX and twin boiler machines. But because its a single boiler it can be hard work if milk duties go beyond a couple at a time.

        And most people like the fact that its compact.

          Hi Fiorello,

          Your friend would also be within striking distance of a Diadema Semi-Auto if he can be a little flexible with budget.

            Chris,
            Is the Diadema similar spec/price to the Vibiemme Junior?
            Ill ask if he can stretch the budget a little, what sort of numbers are we talking?

              See http://www.talkcoffee.com.au/equipment/coffee-machine-diadema-semiauto.php Fiorello. Theres a .pdf info file at the bottom. Specs are identical. Only the switches differ. We also have both on our demo bench.

              My phone number!  ;D Youre welcome to call for pricing.

              Also see our Lelit P60T (dual boiler) demo listed in our sponsor area.
