    Coffee Machine Service in Brisbane

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hey there,

    Been lurking for a while, thought Id post finally.

    Im in need of some recommendations of coffee machine service technicians in Brisbane. Ive got a Gaggia Titanium machine which is in need of some love.

    Can anyone recommend anyone? Id prefer someone who is available on Saturdays as its beyond impossible for me to drop a machine off weekdays. Someone mobile who comes to your house is a plus as well.

    Any recommendations would be appreciated.

    Muchas gracias *:)

    Mobile and with all the parts etc on a Saturday... You could be looking a many dollars.. Min call out fee then working on a machine that requires some special tools etc etc etc.

    Would suggest there would be a couple of places in Brisy, but expect 10 day to 14 days TAT.

    Even then depending on what they find... It will be about $70 to look.

    As your Gaggia Titanium is an auto
    I suggest you call Gilkatho in Milton
    They deal with mostly auto machines

    None that comes to mind as to Mobile and on a Saturday.. May be a CS out there, but none that I know..

    If yours is two years old, it could be almost cheaper to go buy a new one at HN...

    From the Gilkatho web site
    http://www.gilkatho.com.au/companyinfo/default.htm

    On site service.
    Gilkatho has available field technicians to provide field repairs for people who cannot get to the workshop or whom cannot afford to be without their equipment. Additional charges apply for this service.

    I agree KK, Wayne is a top contact.... However I am not sure if his teks are set up for all autos... If it is one of his, I am sure they would have all the tools / Service Kits and tricks of the trade at their finger tips.... If not, it may not be so simple...

    Rasta - You could also try another sponsor.. QCMS - La Nuova Era as they cut their teeth on all sorts of equipment...

    Your $$$ you call.

    If your into Autos... Then Gilkatho would be a first choice... Most of us stay away from them for any number of reasons... They serve a purpose, but if you like playing and pushing the beans and the outcome... Then Manual all teh way.

    Oh yes... manual is a comin... Auto was a stop gap for a few years...

    Coffee is a creative art... auto cheats you of that...
