Posted Wed Nov 20, 2013, 12:35pm Subject: **SOLD** La Pavoni Europiccola Pre-Millennial
I am selling/trading my La Pavoni. I honestly thought I would really like having a manual but its just not for me and I'd like to move to a Gaggia Classic or possibly a Silvia though I know that's a big price jump.
If anyone has a Gaggia Classic they have taken decent care of and they want to trade into the manual world and live in San Diego, let me know. I am also willing to ship and I'm sure we could work something out.
I posted it on ebay but took it down because there was enough interest here. I would prefer to help a fellow CG'er out anyway.
Its a Pre-Millenial with a pressure stat instead of two switches and all chrome. There is some rusting under the drip tray, the boiler swivels a little on the base, and it came with a little bit of its chord casing melted, but the machine has been working great otherwise and the group head was just cleaned by me prior to listing it.
I bought it for $300 and had to put a new brass piston and gaskets in it as well as buy a 49mm tamper base.
Gaskets are about a year old and are holding up well after light use. Price listed is cost minus shipping I put into it. Tamper base included in sale/trade.
Listing Details Asking / Suggested Price: 380 Seller Name: Mark Crabtree Seller Location: Escondido, CA Sale Type: For Sale or Trade
