For sale is my first espresso machine Sage Dual Boiler (BES920UK) which I grew up. Few weeks ago I bought a bigger, more functional and more expensive machine and this is the only reason for sale :)
Two years ago SDB was the best choise at that time for my budget . I wanted to enter into the league of E61 machines with plenty of functionalities I liked. Programmable timers (to preheat machine and get warm cups in the mornings), fast preheat, programmable buttons for coffee amount, preinfusion settings, easy to modify (to Slayer mod) were the things I was looking for at the beginning.
I never regret, apart that it helped me to grow too fast and came for another level much quicker.
About the machine:
I purchased it new in September 2019. I used it daily to make two shots of espresso (one in morning, one in afternoon). I am not a big fan of milky drinks, but the steam on the machine is powerful and makes a good milk froth (I think). From the first day it was used RO filtered water only. Machine was cleaned on regular basis. I descaled it few month ago as well.
The machine had own personal corner in the kitchen accessed only for the coffee time and was beloved family member :)
It is still looks like new (for me at least), but you should expect it as a two years old machine. There are not known defects or problems at the moment it was packed to the box. Probably you can expect some finger prints or other marks on the stainless steel, but you can clean it easy.
It will come with full original accessories and packaging. In addition I will include bottomless portafilter and knock box.
A lot of videos and info including pros and cons, modifications available online. You can google if you want to find more.
The item is in Bedford. I could deliver it in the area or halfway if longer. Once per month I am going to Manchester. I could deliver it to the any of services on M1, M6 or A50 along the way.
I could send it by a courier if required at buyers cost or you can organize your own courier as well.
