This wonderful package is sold, now the next project is funded!Hi guys, I'm probably preferring local sale for these items to focus on my next project. I purchased this machine from the American Barista School who had pretty never really used the machine because they prefer to train people on bigger two groups. So it's in great condition inside and out, but I descaled it just to make sure the guts were as clean. Just got a new group gasket but have not installed it yet.

The Brasilia Century Cappuccino is a very cool and unique machine, but I love the size, features and performance. It gets tons of compliments too. I particularly love the way it steams, instead of having a rotating knob, the knob is a button which can easily be locked so you can keep both hands on the pitcher and work on co-ordinating your milk swirling. This has made for more consistent microfoam and latte art than with any other machine I've used recently. With the factory 4 hole tip it was just nuking my milk in seconds, but with the single hole it's just great.

Priced at $800, or combine with big workhorse La San Marco grinder for $1000. I have it advertised on Craigslist for $100 more.

Specs:
Runs on standard 110v home power
1.5 liter copper boiler with heat exchanger (fully descaled) and pressure gauge
Swiveling hot water wand for instant boiling water
1400w heating element
Automatic boiler refill
3 liter removable reservoir with low water sensor
Automatic espresso dosing
Replaced pump
Chrome drip tray has waste line hook up underneath


Here's a video of the very first shot I pulled with the machine, a little slow, but with my roasts that often works out perfectly! Since this video, I added sound dampening between the pump and frame, so it's significantly smoother more quiet.

Photos show original condition, this is not a restoration job and has not even been cleaned inside:

I will take some. But in the mean time, it's the model you can see pictured on this page http://coffeegeek.com/reviews/grinders/lasanmarcogrinders and the manual is here Click Here (www.lasanmarco.it)

If I find out it's the version with 84mm burrs, I am keeping it :) I bought it to be an affordable Super Jolly alternative but just don't find myself using it.

FYI, shipping a SJ, coast to coast, UPS, with $500 insurance was about $45.
You should be able to guestamate from there LOL!

Hey all, the package sold tonight locally. Thanks for the interest! Just moved and have a baby on the way so couldn't pass up the convenience.
