Posted Mon May 13, 2013, 12:57pm Subject: For Sale: Saeco Aroma Espresso Machine & Doserless Rancilio Rocky Grinder
Alrighty... We're moving this Saturday and I've decided as much as I L-O-V-E this combo for homemade espresso, I've moved more towards pourover stuff and I haven't used this in a couple months.
I've cut the bottom of the portafilter off (just the plastic)... there was build-up accumulating in there, so instead of having it split into two shots, it simply pours straight from the basket into the cup as one double shot (no wasted crema :) ).
It comes with espresso machine cleaner (cleancaf brand), a tamper that fits the basket perfectly, and two espresso cups.
Important note on the grinder: it works PERFECTLY, but the "basket holder" is gone (it was a pain and I don't like the basket to rattle as you're dosing, so I just took it off and never found it again). Also, the burrs are due for a cleaning/sharpening (or replacing). It's still grinds VERY well, but just as a heads up... it'll need typical burr service soon.
I bought the machine used a couple years ago around $250, and the grinder for about $275. It's a Rancilio Rocky Doserless Grinder (if you're looking for a grinder that's top-notch quality without the $$$ of higher-end brands or other machines, this is perfect). The espresso machine is a Saeco Aroma, and like the grinder will make you stellar espresso without the pricetag.
