Posted Sun Dec 9, 2012, 4:22pm Subject: For Sale: Olympia Cremina 1983
Hi Everyone, I'm a long time lurker of the forum, over time I've got addicted to the espresso upgrading game and went from a Bezzera and a Macap to a Vivaldi and Compak K10 with a Mazzer Major along the way. Anyway the latest addition was an Olympia Cremina that I don't really have the time to enjoy so I have decided to part from it:
1983 Olympia Cremina manual lever espresso machine. Great condition. I'm only selling for local pick-up. Details: Olympia replacement seals currently installed. Replaced recently: new Boiler gasket, group gasket, piston seals, steam arm, heating element. Comes with: steam wand pressure gauge from Orphan Espresso, Stainless Steel Richard Penny bottomless portafilter, Elektra Microcasa a Leva double basket, original hack-job bottomless portafilter (great for locking in between shots to get the temp back down), blue tamper from orphan espresso, extra set of orphan espresso seals, digital taylor grouphead thermometer.
If you want great espresso (with a good grinder), this is the ultimate lever espresso machine.
NOT WILLING TO SHIP, CASH AND CARRY.
