Posted Sun Feb 1, 2009, 12:43am Subject: SOLD: Nuova Simonelli Oscar (black) in excellent condition
Selling my trusty Oscar, which is just over a year old. My wife isn't into the whole espresso thing...at least not the preparation aspect of it -- and wants to move to an 'automatic' machine, which would be easier for her to use day to day. Not enough counterspace for two machines. I'm still somewhat conflicted with this, but I guess I will go with the flow and see how it works out. The Oscar is a great HX machine, this one is in great shape. I have read that there are some (older) Oscars without the Sirai P-stat....this one does have it. Two portafilters and instruction manual included.
If interested, send me an email. I will work to get some pictures up, can also email them to you if you are interested.
$600 plus shipping. Have had quite a few inquiries on overall total including shipping cost....to make things simple, let's just call it $660 shipped....which is the quote I got online using UPS. The Oscar is pretty heavy....39 pounds.

That is a good price. When I bought my ECM, I sold my Oscar, 2pf, + 1 naked, tamper, and modded with a vacuum breaker plus a steaming pitcher for $525. There was a little damage to the finish on the Oscar but nothing to stop it from working properly. My sale went to a local and we talked coffee for nearly an hour before we went our own ways. I gave an outstanding deal local just to avoid shipping and the problems that can go along with long distance sales. You are selling yours for a very good price. Good luck! The Oscar is a fine machine and it should do someone a very nice job!

I looked on a few websites for this machine to read some specs, and notices its called an "automatic", tho if Im not mistaken, its a semi-auto? Is there only pre-programmed buttons for single and double pulls? Or is there that, and also a manual brew button where I can push, pull shot, and push again when Im content, ie:want it to stop. Also, the two PF's. Is one a single and one a double? Two doubles? Or does this machine have filter baskets instead of dedicated PFs, and you happen to own two PF. It would be Ideal if there was no single, idc if doubles are baskets of dedicated because I would turn one bottomless without fear of screwing it up cuz of a backup. (do you have to use a triple basket for a naked pf? are they available?) Other then that, do those shot glasses come with it? ::wink::
