Espresso: My Pressi Twist

I confess to being a newcomer to the world of espresso. All I know is I like the end product and have changed my focus from home brewing to good coffee making/drinking. I purchased this at an auction, on impulse, only to discover it was 220Volts./2400 Watts.
I do not want to deal with wiring changes in my house and am considering re-selling the unit or perhaps dismantling it for parts. Any suggestions from this group as to how to proceed are appreciated. I live in the upper midwest. I am hopeful someone on this forum might have an interest.
I see I cannot send an image due to the size of the photo I took, but I would be happy to email one directly.
Thanks for your input.  I will check this site within the week.

You can resize the photos, the size limit is tough to adjust to for many people.

Well, short of running a new power line, there isn't much you can do,
Is there a unused electrical clothes dryer circuit you are not using?

A 220v machine will have much better recovery time due to the bigger heater but as a home machine you most likely will not need the abilities it has. That is not to say that they would be wasted, many here have commercial machines and enjoy the extra abilities they have.

Only you can decide if you can or will be able to enjoy the extra stability and features it has.

It would be a real shame to see that machine chopped up for parts. It looks to be a Super Auto and as such, it would take all the work out of the process of brewing espresso drinks but at the cost of tweaking abilities lost. As a commercial machine, it should be much better built than any home Super Auto out there.

The up side is that with fresh beans, it should have no problem besting the corner coffee shop and anyone in the home can use it with only a touch of a button (hey, put on a green apron and be an instant barista! :D)

Thanks for the input. I think I will just advertise it locally and also on this site to see if there is any interest. I find it hard to believe that someone in this great country would not be interested in it.
In the meantime I will continue to pull excellent shots with my low tech My Pressi twist.
