Posted Sat Apr 20, 2013, 12:57pm Subject: SOLD: Rancilio Silvia and Rancilio Rocky Doserless
(Hey all! I'm looking to sell my Silvia and Rocky as a friend of mine who has been into coffee for a long time is upgrading his machine and grinder and is giving me a great deal on his current setup. I got them both back in late November early December, and have put less than 5 pounds of coffee through each. I'm still really new to espresso and have been very busy with life, so haven't had a chance to use either of these much since I got them. I'm the second owner of the grinder, the first owner being the friend I mentioned, and as far as the machine I don't know the history prior to me and the nice lady I purchased it from locally.
When I got the grinder I took it apart to learn how it worked and to clear the burrs, and apparently my friend cleaned it prior so they looked great and really didn't need anything to be cleaned. Both the machine and grinder seem to work very well, and in my amateur hands they pull some decent shots. As I said I'm new to espresso and no expert so as far as any specifics regarding condition I admit all I'm comfortable saying is that they seem to me to be working great and other than cleaning the stainless with the proper cleaner they don't seem to need anything at all. I followed Mark's guide on cleaning the brew head after every use and always got as much residual ground coffee out of the grinder between uses as well. I took care of them for the short time I owned them.
I am asking $550 + actual shipping for the pair, of if you'd like one or the other I'm hoping to get $200 + actual shipping for the Rocky and $375 + actual shipping for the Silvia. I am including with the machine two portafilters, the double-spout standard portafilter as well as a rancilio bottomless portafilter I got for christmas and maybe put 10 shots through since. I may be interested in trading these + $$ for any higher-end/prosumer if the price is right as the deal with my friend isn't completely set in stone.
