    Cool Coffee machine servicing recommendations in Melbourne? (bonus if I can watch?)

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

    Just got a 2nd hand VBM Domobar Junior and it is looking like I may need to fix the OPV (see my other thread in this forum about my brewing pressure potentially being too high)

    Any recommendations for places to service in Melbourne? (I'm in eastern suburbs but I'm more interested going to a good value, friendly & quality service place)

    • I think I just want a general checkup, descale, and fix things like OPV, the green power light doesn't work.....and anything else that doesn't look right.
    • I know Rick from The Coffee Machinist has been recommended....I tried his mobile today and it didn't work so I'm not sure if he's still operational
    • There were also some posts about 9 Bar but that was maybe 5+ years ago so not sure if that's still a good rec?
    • Coffee A Roma is close by - any one used them before?

    As a bonus, since I'm a newbie, I'd also be very interested in sitting in to see/watch (if that's possible at all....) but that would be a cool bonus!

    Also any idea on rough price range I'd be looking at?

    Have used Coffee A Roma before and they do a good service job. Actually planning to send my Junior there too in Jan. Their prices are on their website.
