  • !!!SOLD!!! - Olympia Cremina "sooped" up version 1974 model

    Hi All

    I have for sale my "sooped" up Olympia Cremina 1974 model.

    How is it sloped up you ask?

    Well it has:
    armaflex ht insulation on the boiler ( asbestos is long gone)
    Teflon gasket for the group head to boiler (custom made) for greater group head temp stability (debatable)
    Replaced steam want with a swivel from a breville which I believe produces better froth. ( comes with the original steam wand as well and easily replacable)

    All these mods are completely reversible back to its original condition.


    The machine has has had a full descale and all gaskets seals ect.. (including boiler gasket) replace a year ago. No leaks anywhere.
    There is a spare completed seal and gasket set included when you need to replace ( won't need replacing for several years)

    Accessories include

    Original milk jug and container
    2 single baskets
    2 double baskets
    Original portafilter
    Tamp orphan espresso
    Dosing funnel
    And a Richard Penney brass naked portafilter ( this is the original prototype Richard was kind enough to part with)

    This is a beautiful lever and very forgiving. Its a great machine if you are an experienced or beginner lever enthusiast.

    Why am I selling you ask? Because I have two of these and am itching to upgrade to a commercial lever.

    $1650

      Hi kokos the breville steam arm has two holes where as the Cremina his three which for me just didnt have enough oomph. I have my boiler pressure set at about 1 to1.1 bar. The mod is easy. Check out my thread on it. http://coffeesnobs.com.au/brewing-eq...-wand-mod.html

                      Hi sorry naked comes with the machine. Its a one of a kind which Richard used as a prototype for the Penney portafilters that are now available. I don't think they make them in brass anymore. Sad to see the naked go but I obviously would not have any use for it without a Cremina.
