Sold – Olympia Cremina ’67’ Model


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.

SOLD – Macap M4 Grinder

My home grinder for the past 4 years. It has the shorter hopper to fit under lower cabinets.

It’s in top condition and is one of the best home grinders on the market. Dark grey/silver in colour.

The only reason it’s for sale is I’ve replaced it with —- the same grinder in chrome finish.

Olympia Cremina Home Lever

Amongst enthusiasts the Cremina is acknowledged as the “Roll Royce” of home coffee machines. It is essentially hand made in Switzerland and the design has been honed  over the years so that by just unscrewing one nut the owner can expose the complete inside of the machine for service. Because there is no spring in the lever mechanism it is a very simple job to replace the piston seals when needed.
