I have a beautiful Astra Gourmet plumbed in 110V Automatic machine. Absolutely my favorite I've ever owned. Pulls perfect shots. American-made with the best of the best Italian componentry. Their L.A. based distribution company has always been very helpful setting up the machine and ordering parts and accessories whenever necessary.
I moved into a place where I can't plumb in my machine or set up bottles and I'm looking to trade for a similar quality pour-over machine or sell outright. The Gourmet has been meticulously maintained and serviced regularly. Includes installed thinner distribution block. http://www.astramfr.com/gourmet_auto.html $4,000 shipped brand new!!
Shoot me an email if you are interested. peterkatkov(at)gmail.com Would prefer local Southern California trade as shipping would cost an arm and a leg. Would also sell for $1300 cash plus shipping at buyer's expense.
Listing Details Asking / Suggested Price: 1300 Seller Name: Pete Katkov Seller Location: San Diego, CA Sale Type: For Trade/Sale

If you love the machine, why not just run it off of a bottle with a water pump? You already own the machine and a two jug setup with pump should be under $200 all up. You get to keep your machine that way.
If your room just will not allow this, I am sorry for your situation but it does happen. Good luck.
