Espresso: Faema

Just joined and this is my first post although I have been reading the forums for a bit now. My wife and I love coffee but the local coffee shop is just to costly on a cops budget. Besides, after reading everyone's posts, I knew I had to try making this for myself. So I began the search for a grinder and a espresso machine after MUCH research. I have found a decent grinder for now (Kitchen Aid ProLine Burr Coffee Mill) its not what I want to end with but for what I got it for and what I can afford for now it will have to do. I did find a Feama for a steal. I however cant figure out what Model it is. The writing is in Italian. It looks close to E92 SE A. Can anyone tell me what model I have and if I end up needing parts, where best to get them. So far it seems to be good to go. The only thing I find missing is the tamper. I have added a pic, let me know if you need more. Thanks for the help.

Hello and welcome.

There is a pretty big aftermarket pipeline for parts, most of the machines use parts that for all intents are interchangeable. There are a couple of parts makers that nearly all the machines use but some parts may be specific to your machine. Sheet metal parts and control panels for example are parts that are maker only but things like valves, pumps etc are much more... mix and match, just keep the specs the same, for example a 120 v coil needs to be replaced with a 120v coil, not a 220v one.

Although, modded KA grinders have been used with some luck, they are not really up to the task. Espresso requires a different KIND of grind than brewed coffee and you will find very quickly that your grinder is holding you back, I suspect you will be in the market for a new grinder much sooner than you expect or hope to be.

Thanks for the help guys. I found its sticker which should have showed the model but that part was worn off. I was able to see it was made in 1994 and get another set of numbers off of it but just not the model. Do you have an idea about where to get parts if I end up needing any?
Yea I am thinking you are correct on the grinder it is the most important part so I am continuing to look. I was actually looking for a grinder first and just happened to run into the Faema and couldn't pass it up for the price.
