Hey all, new here.

I'm in the market for my first home espresso set up. I'd like to find a used grinder, preferably a Gaggia MDF or similar. I thought buying used from you 'geeks would get me a well taken care of machine. The listing details wont let me enter anything but a number, but I'm open to price, hoping to stay under $200, as I would pay for shipping.

Let me know guys!

Thanks

Listing Details
Asking / Suggested Price: 200
Seller Name: Joe M.
Seller Location: Omaha
Sale Type: Wanted to Buy

Take a look at my listing:

"Re: FS: Fiorenzato Mestre (T-80) *PRICE DROP*"

It is a Fiorenzato Mestre (T-80). I don't know how it would would compare to the Gaggia, since I have never used one, but it is an awesome espresso grinder.

Also look on Baratza's website. You might be able to find a refurbished Preciso for around $200.

Ok, thanks Joe.
At your link though WLL's price is $299.00 new, so that's $99 dollars from the original used price of $200.00 in your 1st post & a $60.00 difference between the WLL's new price versus $239.00 for a refurb.. I posted the price new from Baratza.

Yea, I was including the price of shipping the used Baratza into my calculations too.

And at the same time, I realized I have to expand my budget a bit for the grinder after long conversations with some awesome members here.

Did you check out the T 80? I picked one up locally from a CG'er refurbished for under a hundred bucks. It's a very serious grinder. So..... It  certainly is possible if you are patient and poke around here amongst the CG 'ers
