  • What machine is this??

    Iv seen a machine for sale that the seller doesnt know much about. Its a vibiemme with a couple of big non-sponsor fine coffee badges stuck/moulded into it. Its a typical e61 looking machine with steaming arm on the left and hot water on the right. 2 red buttons and a red light on the bottom and a green light top right with triangular shaped taps for steam/water and one pressure gauge. Would this be a hx machine? How much would it be worth??

    A couple of good photos might help mate...

    Your description could apply to several different machines.

    Mal.

      yeah that description was a bit vague lol...

      If its a vibiemme its probably worth something if its of use to you.

          looks like youre pretty close by to where its being sold- why dont you ask to go and check it out. cheap at $1500 i would think. probably has a dual boiler given its size?

              If its a Piccolo its a single boiler, not a HX (correct me if Im wrong!)

              What do you like to drink Wynton? Single boilers come with pros and cons, if youre not looking for the pros or not happy with the cons maybe a cheaper one would be better? Or maybe you want a HX?

                I dont believe the one they are looking at is the Piccolo. The Piccolo does not have hot water tap - the one being discussed does.
                The one I just saw on ebay that matches the description is a HX. Good machine. Expect it to be filthy inside (and then if its not, its a bonus for you) as an awful lot of 2nd hand machines are - but a thorough descale and backflush should be able to sort it out.
                If youre close enough as mentioned above, go and see it and check everything works so then youll know if its likely just an internal clean, or if parts and repairs will need to be factored in.

                  Scored! Cant believe it only went for $1010. Hope its in good order otherwise it might not be such a bargain!

                  Does anyone with the older model vibiemme domobar super have any user advice?
