This unit was a Christmas gift of December of 2012 and has been my sole espresso machine since.

The only issues I have ever had was I burned out the heater in 2014 and replaced that and the pump. December of 2016 the Auber PID was installed. This year I finally had an opportunity to fully restore the machine and bring it back to as close to just out of the box condition and did the paint protection film as an insurance policy to keep the rust away. I also Scotchbrighted? The cup warmer, drip tray, and stainless steel behind the drip tray.

As to how it was used I am a milk drinker so the steam was used on a daily basis for two drinks a day every day with the exception of June through September where I would drop down to shots only around 3 to four a week. This was descaled three times a year and while it was torn down there was no scale to be found in the boiler or any other parts of the machine.

I'm selling with everything pictured. The unit has been fully tested for leaks, and I'll be pulling shots for the next week. Ideally it will sell to someone close to home south Jersey Cherry Hill is the closest town as I would rather not ship.

I will drive about an hour one way however. Any questions you have please feel free to ask and I can provide more photos and videos on request.

I'm going to start at $650 as they're going for that on eBay the last three auctions I have seen and they're generally not in this kind of condition as this is truly take it out of the box prime the boiler and go.

The parts included are
  • original manual, PID manual, PID install instructions, OEM plastic tamper, OEM single shot basket, OEM double shot basket, unknown double shot basket,
  • two espresso parts double shot baskets, two espresso parts triple shot baskets, one grouphead brush, one Rattleware 58mm stainless steel tamper, one
  • Rattleware milk pitcher 14 Oz I believe, a blister pack of cleaner, one pack of descale, and a blind basket.
Thank you for your time.
