SOLD – Aurora 1 Group lever coffee machine

Aurora 1 Group Lever Coffee Machine

Originally my own machine and fully restored and then used by me for 4 years, this Aurora 1 Group lever machine is now for sale by it’s current owner.

Note : The restoration included a complete dismantle, the frame and painted panels were all sandblasted then powder coated. The boiler was dismantled and it and all pipes were descaled in an acid bath.

Wiring was checked and pressurestat replaced. All chrome was professionally redone.

The machine is near Frankston, Vic, so if you’d like to see it contact me and I can link you with Don.

See below the picture for his words on the machine.

Or go to the Shop to buy it

I have decided to sell my wife’s beautiful Brugnetti Aurora Europa to fund other coffee machine projects. She doesn’t know yet !!! .

It is a single group, 1960’s (?) pre HX model and was comprehensively restored by John several years ago and used as our everyday machine ever since. The Aurora is on all day every day and is an extraordinarily docile and user friendly lever. Pull five or more shots in a row and the head needs a bit of a cool down but if left idling all day you can just walk up and pull a delicious shot. Being fitted with Teflon gaskets sometimes a warming flush is needed.  Steams perfect microfoam.

The only thing NQR is the gauge which sits at .3 when cold and 1.2 at full pressure. True full pressure is .9. John fitted an anti- vac valve when he restored it.

Only ever run with the correct in line filters, always properly maintained and is fitted with boiler autofill. Currently fully plumbed the machine has also been fitted with a power outlet for pump operation from a barrel (no pump included).

Powder coated gray frame and black end frames with powder coated pastel orange panels, polished stainless front panel and brushed stainless rear panel. The machine comes with the original Aurora portafilter handle and a generic type double.

There are a few of the two groups around but this is the only single group, pre HX Aurora I have ever seen.

This is a simple, idiot proof and utterly gorgeous machine. Local shipping preferred but I will consider international options.

Sold – Olympia Cremina ’67’ Model

SOLD

This beautiful Olympia Cremina coffee machine has been my personal machine for the last 5 years

Olympia Cremina 82 Red

After I bought this Cremina, I completely restored it.

It was totally dismantled. The frame was stripped back to bare metal and then double powder coated with a grey ripple finish.
The main body panel was also stripped and double powder coated in the red you can see in the images.
Every seal and gasket has been replaced.

Since restoration it has had very light use as I rotate weekly between the 5 machines I have as my small collection. So you could say it has only had 1/5 th of the normal use.

Why am I selling the Cremina ?

Because yesterday I was offered another Cremina which I bought and will now keep.
