**Listing no longer available**
Hello, coffeegeek members. I originally purchased this machine from a member on here last December in order to get my feet wet in the Espresso world. It is a 2007 unit. Unfortunately, I am about to graduate from college and am headed to medical school with less-than-ideal funds, so this baby has to go (don't worry, I still have my chemex). I religiously backflushed and descaled (when appropriate) her and always ran filtered water through it. Included with this machine and its original parts are a handful of accessories I have purchased: shot glasses, Rattleware tamp pad, Rattleware tamper, Grindenstein knockbox, Pallo cleaning brush, 12oz frothing pitcher, backflush plug, and cleaning supplies. I have a picture indicating the amount of Cafiza remaining, and there are 2 packets of Dezcal left in the box. The only issues with the machine are the light scratches on the warming tray (most likely from the portafilter) and the well-known leaky steam arm. The steam arm was tightened inside the unit so it does not pivot as easily as stock, but the dripping is much less than before. It can easily be loosened and adjusted how ever you'd like. The original pieces (frothing aid, plastic permanent tamper, old dispersion screen) are included with this. The dispersion screen and portafilter gasket on the unit are relatively new (less than 15 pulled doubles). Everything pictured is included. If you have any questions, feel free to ask! I can also take additional pictures if necessary.
Oh yes, the price. I would like to get $350$315 (includes shipping to the contiguous U.S.) if that is reasonable. Really need to get this thing sold ASAP! Had a few people interested but never followed through.

Unfortunately, I do not, really. I could add in the hario slim manual grinder that I also own, but that would not be my first choice for pairing with a LeLit, Silvia, Gaggia, etc--not to mention anger my new fiancee, ha! I appreciate the interest, though. It seems like the grinder I would have upgraded to had I been able to keep this would have been the Baratza Preciso for a multi-use or LeLit's own PL53 for a dedicated.
