  • !!SOLD!! Makin Signature machine (demo)

    Its time for this 3 month old baby to move aside to create some bench space for new stock. It has been used to demo to a few clients and has produced under 50 shots....So, well do a great deal on it and package a grinder as well if you wish....

    Cheers,

      So very tempting... Is it safe to assume its in perfect condition? Any marks/scratches of note? (concious of the aesthetics for the missus)

          For those yet to see this machine, heres some art:

          Its still available and can be packaged with a bargain priced grinder from our range if required. Fully bench tested, pump pressure calibrated to 9.0 bar and boiler pressure to 1.1 bar.

            Why is the boiler set to 1.1 bar? Touch low isnt it?

              Nope.... thats plenty.

              My La Cimbali is set to 1.1 and theres enough steam to texture enough milk for 4 lates in about 20 seconds.... Any more - it would be uncontrollable and Id have milk everywhere .

              Some commercials run a bit higher (up to about 1.5 maybe a bit more) - but thats more about speed than quality when it comes to milk texturing.

              And the greater the pressure, the hotter the boiler - therefore greater differential between the boiler and the brew water - creating more of a temperature problem (but not if you have dual - or multiple- boilers..... I wonder when there will be second hand synessos )

                  Im running mine at 0.9 at the moment!! But Ill bump it to 1.0 or maybe 1.1 once I have finished experimenting. At this pressure, my cooling flush is small enough that Im not emptying the drip tray very often at all. I think that different machines respond to different pressures differently.

                  Cheers,

                  Luca

                      Hey Chris and prospective buyers

                      The giotto that Chris sold me a couple of weeks ago is bloody brilliant and so was the advice given by Chris (the coffee was great Chris)

                      Every night I turn off the lights in the kitchen before going up to bed and I swear...the giotto glows in the dark!
