    Coffee Mojo, Wicklow based coffee roaster. Free shipping on orders over €20.

    It says €40 on the site now :-(

    It's still worth it.
    Lovely coffee. I get mine here all the time. Couldn't recommend enough.

    Is www.espressocoffeeshop.com still a good and well trusted site before I part with my lovely cash?!

    I think they are fine as long as nothing goes wrong, but can be a nightmare if you need any after sales support.
    I ordered from them and thankfully didn't have any problems.

    If you are ordering something big maybe worth the extra few quid to order off somewhere else for peace of mind.

    check these threads out first anyway:

    I'd email to make sure they have stock before paying.

    What about www.myespresso.co.uk?

    Any recent experiences with them from anyone?

    I'm looking to get a silvia maybe in a bundle with a grinder.

    Ok, yeah I ordered mine from there(espressocoffeeshop) and it worked out OK, but if it is faulty or it is damaged in transit I would imagine they would be quite difficult to deal with.

    I always recommend coffeeangel.com for a grinder. They really are excellent, they went completely above the call of duty in resolving an issue I had with a Vario I got from there. I also know others on here have had similar experiences with them.

    Does anyone know a good service agent for an automatic expresso machine. My machine is a Gaggia and I have used their agents in Citywest before but I find them very expensive and not very helpful.

    What needs doing. I have a Gaggia Classic and maintain it myself. YouTube is a wonderful thing!

    If not, I believe there is a place in Harolds Cross that services coffee machines. If memory serves their fairly expensive too.

    Any one know somewhere online, preferably in Ireland where I can get a blank filter basket?
    The delivery is too high most places, if there was somewhere that sends them via ordinary post...


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 9,330 ✭✭✭ Gran Hermano


    Parcel Motel might be an option for those UK sites with crazy ROI shipping?

    Does Hasbean have them in stock?

    Watermark/Gaggia in Citywest have them on their website: http://www.gaggia.ie/range/accessories/

    Don't think this has been posted before bur it's a really handy site... www.brewmethods.com.

    Also, some interesting stuff here for Aeropress fans.

    I've bought parts from ShockWaves shop on eBay, they are good at responding to questions and giving advice.

    - Can anyone tell me if there is someone / somewhere were I can get a new water pump fitted to my Gaggia Cubika, domestic machine?

    I'm located in Galway and would prefer to have it fixed locally rather than send it away for repairs.

    Thanks

    Has anyone used myespresso.co.uk or [snipped]?
    Are they safe?

    On Myespresso site at least they provided VAT number and it seems valid at least according to this.

    Thanks lads. They both have a Silvia & Rocky set for about st£600. It's more than I should spend on coffee gear, but seems like good value for the products. I wouldn't pay any more than that, to be honest. I'll probably get a Gaggia from Amazon.

    Gaggia classic from Amazon (keep an eye on price via camel camel)
    Check whether happydonkey will ship mc2 here currently.
    Or pop into/email coffee angel and talk to Karl about grinders.

    Hey anyone have any experience with http://www.lagondola.it/ ?
    Im thinking of picking up a nice leaver machine from them.


  • Registered Users Posts: 20 DMARTINGTI


    Has anyone tried jjdarboven ie online shop . They have an interesting selection and prices don't seem over the top. I might try them out. I had some of the Movenpick previously and it was very nice. Shop in Dun Laoghaire looks good also but far away from me here in Cork.


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,776 ✭✭✭✭ Slattsy


    Actually on the lookout for new blends too after i picked up a mocha pot recently.
    Usually use Coffee Mojo, just fancy something different.

    Would love to order from them, but at €5 for delivery, I'd have to order a sizeable quantity of coffee to justify the postage cost. Got some beans from them before and they were great.

    I didn't know it cost that much..I wouldn't order when coffeemojo is 2.10 for two.

    There has to be some delivery costs lads.
    2.10 to delivery 2 bags of coffee is nothing.

    I certainly would not pay 5e though.
