Up for sale is my Pharos #108. It has served me very well, but I've decided to upgrade to something that requires a bit less manual work.

In any case, for the quality of grind, it's impossible to beat the price of this grinder. The greatest thing about it is not having to adjust the grind once you get it set.

$225 includes shipping to lower 48, or $210 local pickup (or to calculate international shipping).

Listing Details
Asking / Suggested Price: 225
Seller Name: Andre Vornbrock
Seller Location: Houston, TX
Sale Type: For Sale

It is closer to $265 shipped new though, so a $40 discount.

I don't have a dog in this fight, but I do have a Pharos. It would take a life time to wear one out. Consider this one "pre-seasoned" : )

 
I chew coffee beans with my teeth while gargling with 195 F water to enjoy coffee. What is this "coffee brewing" device you speak of?

Quality made espresso equip holds its value, and eventually can go up in value.  I sold both of my Mazzer Minis for significantly more than I bought them for new.  With the quality of build of the Pharos I don't see any reason for their value to go down signifivantly.

I have #555 w/Voodoodaddy mods and love it and am strongly considering getting a second but for only $40 between used and brand new, I'd buy new. I'm just saying.............

Yet no one has made an offer...

Another post was up with the same grinder for 210 and I believe it sold, wonder why now I'm getting so much heat now...economy? :)

I think as others have mentioned that this product is very well-made and will last a lifetime (thanks to those who have commented), so I don't see why it should lose much value. However, something is only worth what people are willing to pay for it. Then again, I don't have to sell it, and I may just keep it for travel use.

For me, there would be added value in getting the updates that OE has been adding over time. And I suppose as retail prices go lower, we're more and more willing to pay a little extra to have the latest and greatest. You won't need to budge much to sell, demand should be pretty consistent and there are very few used ones. I think the difference between a good deal and a great deal will likely only be an additional $10-20 off. I keep toying around with the idea of one of these, so I'm thinking about it...

I paid 200$ for a stock Pharos on EBay ( plus shipping). So the price range is reasonable.

yeah, I'm quite interested in picking up this one, but it'll be a few weeks before I can.  I'm hoping it'll still be available.  I'm local too.
