    FS: Rancilio 3-Group Z11 Omicron (wired for home use)

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Fellow coffee snobs,

    It is with sadness that I list my reliable 3-Group Rancilio machine. It has served me well for the last couple of yers - but upgraditis bit and now it has to go.

    It has an almost brand new element (a one group element so it takes a while to heat up - about 45 minutes), and the boiler was recently descaled.

    The screw on the shower screen on the middle element is burred - so I havent been able to clean it lately, other than with the regulatory backflush).

    All groups are in good working order, though the seals are oldish.

    The external procon pump is currently held together by wires - my original pump died, and the local repair place gave me (for free) a pump that didnt have the same attachment for the motor. I might, in the next few days, try to find a way to attach it more securely.

    It still delivers the requisite pressure for pulling great shots - and I have had no troubles drawing water from a reservoir.

    It is big. And heavy. But it is reliable. There are a couple of small scratches on the back panel.

    It comes with two standard double shot portafillers, and one naked portafiller, and two double shot baskets, and one single shot basket.

    Asking price=$700 (ono)
    Location=Keperra, Brisbane

    Feel free to ask for more questions. Ill put up some photos shortly.

    If its not sold by the time my new machine arrives Ill be sticking it on ebay (reluctantly).

    Its a beautiful machine. Ill stick some pictures up soon.

    Sorry guys. Posted this just as I was about to take a weeks holidays. Silly timing really.

    Heres the machine on the day it arrived - next to my old Sunbeam.



    Ill take a couple of the pump as it currently stands...

    Heres a shot pouring (though its into a bowl sized mug)...

    Hi mmmcoffee,

    Approx 100kg.

    Ive used her for church events, a couple of markets, some dinner functions and a couple of camps. Shes pretty reliable, though if you work her steadily with bigger milk jugs (like the 1.5kg ones) trying to make hot chocolates she struggles a little bit. Ive never run out of steam, but the steam pressure dips at that point.

    Shots are not an issue - she could pull shots all day I reckon.

    This is because Ive got her running on a 1 group element (and not even all of the prongs on the one group). If you were going to wire her in somewhere you could upgrade the element - coffee parts have lots of Rancilio parts.
