Posted Mon Apr 15, 2013, 9:50pm Subject: FS or Trade: Rocket R58 for Mazzer Robur E
For sale or trade is my Rocket R58. It was purchased from Whole Latte Love in June of 2012. It arrived from WLL with no shipping damage. I updated the control software and had the more sensitive temperature probe installed for improved steam performance. I have been running the machine with the built in water reservoir. I regularly backflush the machine on a weekly basis. The only issue that I ever had was a steam leak from the brass male threaded coupler that connects the steam valve to the copper steam pipe. The coupler had a crack and was replaced. Mechanically the machine runs perfectly. Cosmetically the machine is almost perfect. There are a few scratches on the drip tray grate that are from the bottom of my latte cups. I upgraded to this machine from an Isomac Tea V1. The steam performance was very noticeable as well as the temperature stability. No more temperature surfing. Brewing and steaming at the same time or back to back has no effect on temperature stability compared to my Hx Tea. The reason that I am selling this machine is because I splurged and bought a La Marzocco GS3 MP from Clive Coffee in March of 2013. I have been dreaming of getting a GS3 MP for years. I finally pulled the plug and did it. I have recently moved from San Francisco to Massachusetts and would really like to get a Mazzer Robur E. I have all the original packaging for the Rocket R58. Everything is included that comes with the machine originally. I will also include a Rocket bottomless portafilter. I have lots of pictures of the machine that I can email. I will split the shipping cost with the buyer. I will accept payment through paypal. I am most interested in a trade for a Mazzer Robur E in excellent condition. Let me know if you are interested.
