**BULLETIN:   Re: BREVILLE:  We are hearing that BREVILLE is overwhelmed with repairing their own espresso machines; we cannot get parts and even THEY cannot get parts!  ***Update 1-1-20: if you can get the parts needed, try L.A. ELECTRIC in Tarzana 818 774-9503  otherwise avoid  Breville junk and BUY A JURA INSTEAD.

 
**BULLETIN:  We are getting a LOT of calls from people having problems brewing coffee!  The coffee is weak, the coffee is watery, the coffee is boring, the coffee used to be better etc. what happened?   YOU'RE NOT USING FRESH BEANS and /or THEY HAVE NO MOJO TO BEGIN WITH.   SMELL your ground coffee.  It should give off a pungent aroma that leaves no doubt.   Also, start getting hip to ROASTING DATES!  Use beans within a few weeks of roasting!   TIP: Find coffeehouses that roast their own beans or get their beans from local roasters.     Another unsuspected issue is a cheap grinder that is out of spec and cannot grind with the precision required.

PAVONI EUROPICCOLA/ MICROCASA = YES

COMMERCIAL LEVER MACHINES = YES

  

PHILIPS SAECO / GAGGIA:    These machines when working properly do the job intended however they just do not stand up over time and will not last due to leaks and deterioration of their many plastic parts.  For local service on your Gaggia Accademia, Platinum and other reboots: We recommend ONLY  L.A. Electric in Tarzana @818-774-9503.   BETTER recommendation: GET A JURA INSTEAD.

HOME LEVER MACHINES   We DO work on the Pavoni Europiccola and Elektra microcasa machines however these are mostly inefficient, unstable conversation-pieces  - difficult to work on and also have a tendency to leak and corrode.   Considering they make tiny dollhouse cups for the Ken and Barbie set - your money is better off spent elsewhere.  

LAVAZZA:   Try: https://lavazzarepair.com/  Denville, New Jersey 07834 (973) 452-7345.  Steve Steinheimer  Lavazza Repair   info@lavazzarepair.com 

ZACCONI RIVIERA/ BABY BIG:  Orphan machine.  No parts are available.

OLYMPIA CREMINA: Cerini Coffee, in NYC  718-584-3449 and other vintage.

COMMERCIAL LEVER MACHINES:   We service commercial Astoria, Fiorenzato and Rancilio pull machines - among our more complicated jobs involving pull group disassembly / replacement of MANY gaskets.   Is this expensive to do?  You bet your ass.   Especially if it has to be done on a regular basis, which is usually the case.

FRANCIS FRANCIS:  A Quality machine, back in the day....we do not service any longer.  Call Sapori in Portland.  Quality Machine.  https://www.saporifineflavors.com/

BREVILLE:  DO NOT BUY BREVILLE - No parts / impossible to service / uber-cheap components that break

ASCASO DREAM:   We are sorry to say,  the Dream Machine is one of THE worst junker machines ever made, with a POS boiler / element guaranteed to burn out early no matter what.  The steaming wand is a runner-up POS as well and under no circumstances should you repair it let alone BUY it.   

---NESPRESSO:    More unrepairable capsule crap and why would you want to.   Call  @ 1-800-562-1465 
 

--VINTAGE /ANTIQUATED MACHINES:  Dome & Hammered machines / Gaggia etc.  Deluxe Copper/Brass @818-768-6300

FRANKE / SCHAERER / WMF / EGRO  AUTOMATIC:  These high volume automatic machines are usually installed in cafeterias, schools, hotels and similar and are $$$$ to service.   Try Serrano Espresso in San Gabriel, or call the mfg for service info.
