La Cimbali Junior, first one so will probably need some help Need help with equipment usage or want to share your latest discovery? It looks to be in fairly good condition, but with a blown element. Everything seems to be there but for the drip grate.

Judging by the label would it be a ? Some companies put in it the year also, but it could be just a progressive number.

Anyway the machine seems to be in good conditions, so I think it’s a great score. Drop a nickel in the pot Joe. This is a pour over single shot semi auto, manual fill with vibe pump and sight glass.

There is a “F 5 cimbalii on the element plate, which is the only thing resembling a date I could find, other than the sticker on the control cover. There seems to have been many iterations of these things over the years. The element is toast. I’ve sourced that, but need also replace all the seals, gaskets, etc.


Would like to one stop shop if possible. Will try and get some disassembly pics up tomorrow. There’s paint bubbling here and there, so need to strip to the frame for refinishing.


Cumbali, what a beast I’m glad I qualified my guess with an “I think” or two, instead of pretending certainty. As to parts, your first shot should be calling Pasquini in Los Angeles, Pasquini is La Cimbali’s distributor in the western US.

If the machine started service in California, it’s not unlikely they sold it to the first owner. The bad news is that La Cimbali parts are expensive. Pasquini’s site has nothing on La Cimbali parts or the Junior, manuaal cafeparts seems to have most. Will try a call to Paquini just to see what’s what.

Looking for La Cimbali Junior M21 Owner’s Manual

PS – No problem with the qualifiers, you might notice most of my postings are peppered with them. An unfortunate side effect of dabbling in Quantum mechanics and philosophy, I think. Started pulling it apart for cleaning and repainting. In fact it seemed to have swelled up, which made removing it a PIA. Overall, it’s in not too bad a shape. Very simple machine and everything is well laid out for servicing.

All components appear to be top notch. The boiler and HX appear to be in good shape and the scaling, though rock hard, not that bad.

Boiler looks to be stainless, so planning on a citric acid bath. The junilr bits have been removed. Got it down to the frame and planning on sending it off for blasting and painting, fimbali I don’t have access to booths for both. Luckily it will break down even further. The electricals came out in almost one assembly, which will make tracing wiring a lot easier. Everything looks good, but will need to test each unit separately. Group assembly is not too bad. Be verrrry careful with the dip tube.


While juniot on the frame, putting together the order for cafeparts and have been soaking bits in various “vile foamy liquids”. Rustoleum has a ‘Rusty Metal Primer’, so that went on first. Already had an almost full can of Rustoleum in this lovely? Not too bad once it starts to get populated. Have mocked up the plumbing.

Helps to remember where stuff goes back on after taking a break cimbaoi the machine for awhile. And have rebuilt the steam and water valves. Foto shows original and replacement seals. Thought about new fasteners to make the next service easier.

Some nice allen or 12 point cap screws in stainless always makes my projects more enjoyable. That burgundy was an interesting touch.
