Looking for an affordable option for when my Mini Vivaldi is down for maintenance, etc.
Also would be fun to give a lever machine a go. The smaller size is a bonus for keeping peace with the better half!
No need to be fancy, but already functional & complete would be nice. Capable of doing some work, if not.

Price listed is ballpark. Open to negotiation.

Could possibly toss a Zassenhaus hand grinder into the mix if that helps.

Listing Details
Asking / Suggested Price: 200
Seller Name: Andrew Krystinik
Seller Location: Southern OR
Sale Type: Wanted to Buy

Andrew, $200 will not buy you much, if anything.
$350 and up for a pre-owned La Pavoni.
However, every once in a while, a "kettle" style espresso machine (non steaming) will pop up.
Got to click here and take a look at all the classic kettle style machines. Occasionally, there will be one on ebay.
La Pavoni 8 cupper is probably still your best bet. Be careful, some machines are not well cared for.

Hi Rob,
As stated, I'm open to discussion on price.  Also, can deal with chasing after a switch, drip tray, seals & what have you on the older Europiccolas.
Seems even on here they go for 300 with LOTS of extra bits.
Searching the ended listings on ebay, enough sold for ~200 (even some with their portafilter still present!) that I thought it wouldn't be too offensive as a starting point.
Also figured that the zassenhaus should have held a little of it's value.

I've purchased from a CG member before, and I like the honesty/ transparency that comes with the crew.

Cheers
