Posted Sun May 12, 2013, 9:27pm Subject: For Sale: Le'Lit PL53
Hi all. I've got a slightly used Le'Lit PL53 here - a little under three years of pretty light use. As you can see by scouring the reviews here on CoffeeGeek, it's a great stepless, hence, espresso-only grinder. If you are looking for a serious grinder for espresso in the $2-300 range, this one really is, by all, accounts one of the best. I have a Super Jolly and actually don't do a ton of espresso at home so the poor Le'Lit, despite it's prowess, has been feeling a little under-appreciated as of late. The only reason I kept it around this long is that with enough futzing, it produces some pretty amazing espresso - in some cases equal to or better than the Super Jolly (depending on the particular espresso). So, I was reluctant to let it go for those occasions I really wanted to try an espresso out on two different grinder. But the time has come. Between two espresso grinders and pretty limited home espresso, I need to find some additional room for a second grinder that can do filter coffee.
If you're interested, send me an email or direct message.
Also, what I'd really like to do is sell it locally. The whole packaging up thing is such a challenge with coffee equipment and the last thing I want to do is get it wrong. So I'm going to see if anyone is willing to come to Berkeley to get it first then I'll look a little wider and consider shipping. Let me know either way, but just wanted to put that out there now.
