Posted Thu May 16, 2013, 9:21am Subject: WTB Lever machine (PV Export or...)
[Edit: added Zerowatt CA-709 to wish list-not sure on price so contact me what you want for it and we'll go from there. Thanks]
Hello, today's my birthday and I got some extra cash I wasn't expecting (I told my fam no gifts--but they surprised me) =)
I just missed out on the PV Export that was being sold on CG by one day, so I am putting out some feelers to see if anyone wants to sell theirs. I am also open to other lever machines, especially the vintage ones, except La Pavonis or Mircocimbalis. Ability to steam is not important to me, but functionality is (especially if it is a machine that OE doesn't sell parts for).
I have a La Peppina in Red coming in the mail, so am not looking for another red one. However, if you have a yellow or green one, please contact me. I have a Faemina Baby in bright yellow, so am not looking for another. If I could make a wish list for machines, it might go something like this: PV or Sama Export, Caravel, Zerowatt CA-709, and PV or Sama Lusso.
My budget is under 400, but if you have something that is at a higher price and are willing to perhaps accept payments, contact me.
Thanks for looking ^___^

Hello again, I found a Sama Export--Thanks James! =)
But the Baby Faemina I bought on Ebay was cancelled (since seller wanted a bank transfer...wasn't willing to bother with that). Since I am teaching some summer classes with brutal hours (7am-9pm), I am at my desk all day and don't have time to make coffee at home. I take my Pharos to work and make V60s but I miss espresso. I love that the Baby is simple, so since I have an electric kettle at work that I can use (and my Pharos), I was wondering if anyone has one they don't use or need to sell.
Hi Dr Gary, I didn't know OE was back to selling used machines. The Faemina is very tempting! But the Zerowatt is the wrong model I'm looking for. I really dig the boxy look of the 'caravel' zerowatt version.
