Hello everyone,

I'm selling a Rancilio Epoca ST-1.
Although it's a great machine, I've decided that I'm not interested in pursuing milk art anymore so I can't rationalize setting aside the counterspace for the Epoca any longer.
The machine comes with both a single-spout and double-spout portafilter handle.
The plug is a 20A plug, so you will want to have a modern 20A outlet to plug it into:

However, I have read that the Epoca actually doesn't draw the full 20A and a simple 20A-15A plug converter can be used instead. YMMV.

Features:
  • Heat-Exchanger -- can successively pull espressos and steam milk without pause
  • Huge boiler -- 3.9L (for reference the Silvia is 0.35L), which means steam for days
  • Standard 58mm grouphead
  • Hot-water dispenser
  • As a commercial machine, the side panels come off very easily and allow access to internal components
  • The ST-1 model is the tank-equipped, vibe-pump model (which I believe can be converted to plumbed-in if you wish). As this is the previous model, it doesn't have the new 2-mode steam lever, but instead has a conventional steam knob.

Maintenance:
  • Replaced grouphead gasket less than 6 months ago
  • Fully cleaned the entire grouphead
  • Replaced some auxiliary gaskets that support the access panels
  • Replaced a missing steam arm spring
  • Regularly backflush with water
  • Occasionally (2x / month) backflush with detergent
  • Regularly recharge the water-softener unit (and only use filtered water for the tank)

A gallery of photos of the Epoca can be seen here:

Much prefer local pickup -- this machine takes two people to comfortably carry, and I don't even know how I would ship it.
Will demo!

Just to warn you, my first espresso machine was a silvia that was shipped up from florida and I believe the shipping was close to $150.

Not knowing any better I'd wager they would want over $300 to ship the Epoca. I will check, though.

Granted, I"ve seen these used by several mobile catering companies. I consider it only semi-commercial because it isn't the size of a coffin :P
