Posted Tue Jul 23, 2013, 8:29am Subject: Help identifying the age of my (vintage?) Riviera Espresso
]]]]]]Hi all, long time coffee lover from the UK and have finally managed to get myself a lovely aged, Riviera Espresso. It's one of the copper and brass ones and is a work of art.
I have attached some photo's as I understand these can be dated by looking at the internal wiring. I have removed the base cover for the photo's and hoping some one can shed some light on it. Only other markings are on the base which say 240v (UK model) 1000w Riviera Espresso. Everything works absolutely fine, but are there also any tips for cleaning the inside as I don't know how long she's be left unloved or as an ornament for and there is probably a build up of limescale although it looks clean around all the threads. My guess is late 70's early 80's but I don't have enough knowledge or experience on these to be honest so hoping someone may help.
