  • FS BFC Synchro 3 group

    Im reluctantly selling my BFC Synchro single boiler three group machine - to make room on the bench for my custom build La Marzocco Linea mechanical paddle

    The Synchro is probably a tad under three years old, and features among other things over sized heat exchangers, Cronos keypads, shot clocks, and has been fitted with flow restrictors at the boiler and at the group - to allow long, slow, and continuous extraction of the coffee, hopefully without burning or blonding the shot

    One minute extraction times without scolding the coffee are imminently available - and the resulting coffee is, well... all I can say is you need to see and experience it for yourself

    Weve fitted the machine with levers instead of dials for the steam wands, and weve recently fitted new wands, taps, and anti-vac valves

    The enclosed photo is probably 12 months old, and doesnt show the new steam levers and wands on both sides, and there are some obvious signs of wear mostly around the front panel attached to the bottom of the drip tray

    The machine is however in tip top shape, and has recently had its annual service , with new valves fitted throughout the machine - not because it needed it, but because it gets a minor service every six months, and a major one once a year regardless, to ensure that it is always in tip top shape

    The Synchro set me back $10,500 new - and Im asking a firm $5,500 for it

    Feel free to come and have a play on it if youre interested - we use 20g baskets as standard, and our shot quality excellent

    Im not really interested in packaging and crating - but if thats your thing then feel free to arrange that from your end - and Ill need a weeks lead in time to get a new machine on my bench, before I can part with the Synchro

    Heres a link to the specs on the machine:

    Also its worth a mention that the synchro was bought from site sponsors, Veneziano - and the machine was built to their specifications with design and functionality input from Australia barista champion, Dave Makin

        I would love to convert my steam to lever instead of knob, any more info on this that you can pm me with?

        Fantastic looking machine also!

          Hey Patric they are new style San Marco multidirectional toggle taps with anti-vac valves built into the body - the anti-vac valves provide dry steam, and plenty of controlled pressure on demand

          Cheers,

          Pat

                Had the best Ristretto for the year on this machine in 2011. Had another tasty one a month ago. Great buy for a well sorted well maintained machine. If only it had levers I might consider it 8-)

                  Id consider hanging on to it but what to do with two machines?

                  open another cafe perhaps?
