  • FOR SALE [Central West NSW] Project coffee machines Faema Brasilia Boema

    Offloading some machines that I'm realistically never going to have the time to get them back into the condition I want. They all require some repairs or are missing parts. I'll outline them in a bit more detail below.
    I'd like to sell them as a lot however will sell them individually. The machines are in Bathurst NSW. Due to their size I can't really ship them safely.

    1: Faema E98 Compact S1 single group - $200

    Had a complete tear down and descale, new pump installed. It's a dual connect tank/plumbed however I don't have the water tank for it.
    Was working fine except the steam was very wet all the time. Did some experimenting with level probe depth, didn't seem to have much success. Maybe that's all it is or there's a leak into the boiler somewhere.
    I don't have a portafilter for it, an E61 was modified to fit and the group seal spaced as needed. This portafilter will be included.
    The E98 group portafilter has the ears located far lower than most machines.

    2: Brasilia Century single group - $200

    Pretty cool, unique little machine. I had a new element made for it, all the machine functions are ok however there are two issues.
    Problem one, the steam is very wet when the element is on. I assume due to the boiler layout and proximity of the top of the water to the steam outlet, when heating the water is bubbling up into the steam tube. The element I had made is the same power as the original. Adding a protective barrier above the element or a deflector on the steam outlet fitting may resolve this.
    Problem two, the extraction temperature is low. Unable to get it above 80C no matter how long it idles with a boiler temp of 124-125C which is the limit of what the current pressurestat will do. There are no restrictors in it that I can see.
    Supplied with one portafilter.

    3: Boema single group - $50

    It's rough, missing quite a few parts but it was working fine and pulling shots daily about 3 years ago. I just used parts off it for other jobs over the years and aren't going to restore it.
    The group head has a blockage of coffee in it in a very difficult to access spot.
    Currently missing the drip tray, I think I know where it is and am trying to get it back at the moment. If I can't get it, there's probably plenty of them hanging around.
    Supplied with one portafilter.
