** Now re-available due to idiot time-wasting muppets on eejitBay **
Here’s my spare Gaggia Syncrony Compact. I’ve had one for years then we decided to get my dad one for Christmas, so I got this one…. Then I got offered a Syncrony Digital that was too good/cheap to pass up, so the old boy got that instead, leaving me with this one!!
It’s a super-automatic bean to cup espresso machine, which, especially first thing in the morning, is what you want. Switch it on, wait a minute for it to warm up, press a button and enjoy great espresso. Job done.
The super-automatic thing means that it grinds and measures out its own beans from the 250gr bean hopper and measures and pours a shot or two, then cleans itself. You’ll need to empty the internal grinds bin when it fills up after about a dozen coffees. There's the steam wand too, for frothy milk, or hot water.
The coffee is pretty good too. It’s certainly better than that burnt, bitter sludge that the coffee chains serve.
Anyhoo. I paid £200 for this a month or two ago, since then, it’s been serviced by a Miele engineer using parts supplied by Gaggia UK in Halifax and hasn’t been used since. It’s taking up valuable counter space, so this beauty is yours for the knock-down bargain price of £180 posted!!! Or £170 collected from me in sunny Preston. Which I’d prefer, ‘cos it stops it getting dropped by Royal Snail. Or I guess I could deliver within a reasonable distance? You know… whatever.
Or nearest offer.... or happy to swap for shiny things??
