For sale:
I'm offering my one group Rancilio L7 to CG members before listing it on eBay. I purchased the L7 in May 2005, cleaned it up, descaled it, replaced a few wires, insulated the boiler, and repainted (powdercoated) the panels. I used it very happily for a year, until my wife bought me a Vetrano. (What can I say? I'm a lucky guy. :-) It's been gathering dust in my basement since then.

Would you consider a straight swap - the Ol' Ball & Chain, plus 10 lbs of Black Cat, for your setup? Sounds fair to me!

RapidCoffee Said:

Price: $600 (my cost) plus shipping. Shipping for the L7 should be approximately $50 in the continental US. I'll double box it and guarantee it arrives in good working condition.

Incidentally, that's the cost of a new Rancilio Silvia. This is twice the machine, by almost any measure. And there's a Website currently listing the L7 for the ridiculous price of $1895.

And that's not all! Order today and I'll throw in a set of Ginsu knives... Sorry, got carried away. :-)

But I will throw in a Bunn Espress ES-1G grinder for another $100 plus shipping. This is a rebadged Cunill Columbia, big brother to the popular Cunill Tranquilo. It's got new grinding burrs and is in excellent working condition, good cosmetic condition. I bought it as a decaf grinder when my wife was pregnant, now it also sits gathering dust. I've still got the original (huge) bean hopper if anyone is interested.

Please email me for more info (don't forget to remove the "removethis." from my address).

OK, the GF shot it down for her house because she says (and she's right) that the shots coming form the Sylvia are exceptional, and that the Sylvia is a far better fit for her house, and that I'm not going to sell of the Sylvia to finance the deal (what would I tour with?) so I'm just accumulating kit for the sake of accumulating kit?  Of course, she was right, but I was hoping that she wouldn't notice.  This is the perfect machine for someone that is suffering from any ind of upgrade-itis.  Mine is only be assuaged presently by the two-group hissing in my kitchen here at home.
OTOH, I still have a feeler out for a good home for the grinder if whomever buys the L7 (and I just want the thing for the model number alone) so let me know if your buyer isn't interested in the grinder.

Exactly!, as "you" the Buyer should be contacting the Seller & getting the ball rolling., NOT the other way around.., that's just not right..!

Thanks one and all for your kind remarks. The Rancilio L7 has been sold. (BTW, the buyer did contact me by email.)

The Bunn ES-1G grinder is still available. I'd like to get $125 plus shipping (sorry, the $100 was a special package price). This is a rebadged Cunill grinder; it takes the same 60mm burrs as the Tranquilo, and even has a Cunill sticker on the bottom. AFAIK it's the Cunill Columbia model (good luck, the Cunill website is a bear to navigate), which is basically the Cunill Brasil grinder in a slightly boxier body shape. The burrs are practically new, with less than 10# of grinding use.

This is a decent espresso grinder, sharing many of the same pros and cons of the Cunill Tranquilo. It's a stepped grinder, which makes it easy to change grind settings, and the step sizes are small enough for espresso. The powerful motor and large 60mm grinding burrs make for great grinds, but plastic body and doser can cause static issues. The doser works well, but there's a large space for grinds to accumulate between the burrs and doser. I prefer my Mazzer Super Jolly for espresso, but this is an excellent grinder for drip, press pot, vac pot, or anything requiring large amounts of grinding.

Again, please email me with offers or requests for more info.

I couldn't convince my wife that we needed this machine...  it had me drooling for the past couple of days.  Fact is, I can't plumb it in until I redo the kitchen, which will be several months.

Cheers to the buyer!!! :)  Hopefully another nice HX machine will show up sooner or later.

Congrats to you and to the buyer, I'd say you gave him a great deal.  It had me drooling for a few minutes.  Maybe my ship will come in one day, and I'll join the HX club!
