Well, life circumstances have come to a point that I need to put my coffee endevour at a halt for now. I am selling my HX machine the Pasquini Livia 90.  Here is a link to some of its features

Click Here (www.wholelattelove.com)

It is a very solid, heavy machine that can steam and extract espresso like a champ. If you are looking used and want a solid HX machine that can steam well this is a great one! I am also selling the La cimbali jr grinder

this grinder is among the titans and will give you are VERY consistant grind.

This is my whole setup and will come with a tamp mat and tamper as well as cleaning supplies and various portafilter baskets i.e. single, double and triple. The grinder also has the original manual and build in tamper if needed.

All equipment is in perfect working order and shows normal signs of wear. The Cimbali grinder has a small hole on the top of the hopper and that plastic piece can be replaced. I would like to sell these together for around $1200. Please inquire about any questions and reasonable offers.

Listing Details
Asking / Suggested Price: 1200
Seller Name: Jonathan Reeves
Seller Location: Spring Hill, TN
Sale Type: For Sale

Posted October 23, 2012 link

The regular Cimbali Junior isn't the one that took on the Robur over at HB and pulled a god shot in the process, that was the Max with hybrid conical/flat burrs...a very different grinder.  I often see this mistake made in listings here, on the bay, and on CL.

That being said, I love both these machines, especially at used gear prices.  The Livia 90 is a great home machine.  Sized well, built well, and performs well.  I like the HX-group-bolted-to-the-boiler design ("Dragon" HX) for the home because it come up to temp very fast and after that there really isn't much of subtlety to controlling the temp.  I really like the Junior as well.  Its very compact for a 6Xmm commercial flat burr and has a nice doser action.

I don't know the OP or the condition of his gear, and I don't have any comment on his price.  These are just two machines that I find often over looked in favor on their more talked about counter parts, e61 style HXs and Mazzers.  

+1 for quality gear without the flash.

Thank you for the clarification Russel, I was not aware of that. I do enjoy the "dragon" style use of the HX. With this boiler design it is very easy to temperature surf and really nail some good shots! Yes, the grinder is very compact given its competitors.

I'm the previous owner of this grinder and can personally vouch for it's spectacular performance! The build quality and adjustability are on their own level as far as I'm concerned. Russel is a great person to work with, I'd never done a coffeegeek trade before and he was very genuine and honest. What's next Russel?
