Posted Mon Mar 10, 2014, 4:07pm Subject: Elektra MCAL + accessories for sale <<Sold>>
Hello CG community I have an Elektra MCAL that I'm looking to sell (possibly trade) since I need to clear out some room. I recently traded for this machine here on CG (traded my pasquini/maximatic and anfim to MassJava) and it was originally owned by member TonyV138.
Looking to sell for the same price $800 + shipping. In same condition and with all accessories as described in the above post. I did notice that the steam wand was bent inwards (must have occurred during shipping to MassJava) but I bent it back and works fine.
Would prefer pickup in the Northern NJ/Southern CT/Southern but am willing to ship if a local buyer can't be found.
If picked up locally and I don't need to drive over 60 miles (round trip) I'd discount it to knock off half the shipping cost.
This is a very beautiful machine but I need to clear space for another machine that's coming in otherwise I'll be setting up my espresso bar in the basement machine including all of my espresso gear.
I would consider trading for a Mahlkonig Vario WBC (not sure what the used prices of these are so if needed I would add cash to it) since with grinders I can easily fit them underneath my kitchen cabinets.
I'm going to update this thread with some additional pics once I transfer them from my phone.
Other than the slight blemish (discoloration) the finish is in great shape. I placed a bounty paper towel under the cup to catch any drips when removing it so that it wouldn't hit the drip tray.
This machine produces a clearer/brighter shot of espresso and probably better suited to Single Origins.
