Coffee machine


Recommended Posts

I know i'm taking a long shot here, but I am looking for a replacement portafilter for my Breville cafe venezia (Bes250), in particular the little insert, as well as the tool, and a 50mm tamper. I tried @home,who sells Breville, but no luck/no stock, so I am trying my luck, maybe someone has a broken machine with parts????‍♂️

Saw a whole machine like that at Cash Convertors camaro crossing for under R1000...  Might be worth checking might be a bargain and spares for ever!

Does anyone know where I can buy coffee seeds in Joburg so that I can make my own trees. Its just the normal bean in its skin before it gets roasted if im correct.

 

As far as I know, Gauteng is not really suitable for growing coffee.  Its been done very successfully in the Low Feld (Sabie) and other places more to the north.

 

Also as I understand its not an easy thing to cultivate, but why not give it a shot.  Unroasted beans are the seeds.  You should be able to order unroasted beans from somewhere.

 

Have a look at this:

Looking for freshly roasted beans in Gauteng? Found a Roastery/supplier near me, turns out that one of the guys is in our morning runner's group. Awesome setup, "Coffee excellence" is the name of the Roastery

unfortunately, the time has come for me to part with my pride and joy. Didn't know if I should add this to the classifieds or not. I am selling my Simonelli Aurelia Competizione and my Mahlkonig K30 grinder. They are a matching set. WBC London edition. I am looking for 45k for machine and 15k for the grinder. Please message me if you guys are interested or know of anyone that is. Thanks very much!
