dfk41 The only dual boiler that comes close is the Lelit Elizabeth v3 at Bella Barista for £1,149 in price. But I’m not into the design. Maybe it looks too much like my current Sage DTP which I’m ready to move on from after a number of years.
If Black Cat Coffee had the stainless steel Minima in stock it would have been £1,279, so the prices direct assuming I am liable for VAT and Import duties makes it around £1,260(ish). If not, then it makes it better value at £1,050 with everything included than the Lelit Elizabeth v3 or if I wanted an HX machine, then the Lelit Mara X v2.
The next jump is closer to £1,800 with the Lelit Bianca v3 or something from Profitec or ECM. It’s a lot of money when a Minima is a lot, lot less.
