I was the bad influence, he is a friend near Portland and I sent him the link yesterday. It will be his first project so I hope he posts here documenting it :D

I am fine with someone else getting it! When he finishes I'll have to go check it out.

So, I remember posting a few months back that I would snap up the Gaggia Classica I found a few years ago if presented the opportunity to buy it for the original price of €4000

Well, this week I tracked down my Gaggia guy and made contact with him. And he still had the Classica in his possession. After calling and talking we settled on a price of the Classica, plus two grinders and a blender. Payment is already sent. Another contact is collecting it very soon if not now that lives about five minutes away from the seller.

In the end the Gaggia I found and saw in 2019 came back to me. Serial number 1734

For €2700 in total :D

Ryan,

You're on a tear. Congratulations again!

As a reference of what a score that is:

He had these two guys as well but sold them to Gaggia years ago (I think the pics are taken at their new spots at Gaggia's museum). I would have seriously tried getting these too if he had them still

The 3 group was 5000 :shock:
