While I like how the machine looks, my house will never be as large as my parents and I need to sell the stuff they've left me.  I don't know what this machine is worth (macchina no 17459 from the name plate on the machine) and would appreciate any advice.  I see one for sale in Australia for >$500 AU which seems to be high (and it's been listed for a long time).

If you're kindly taking the time to respond to this, any advice on the Nespresso D300 would be appreciated.  I got fed up with paying for their only decent coffee that never quite tasted strong enough.  Is there a market for these machines?

thanks much!

You want to get rid of a classic, stylish Paradiso Zappia Cafe/Espresso Art Deco Chrome Classic, in favor of a Nespresso D300???  Hmmm . . .

The only market I know of for a Nespresso is a flea market/garage sale/craigslist-type of transaction, and the price you'll get won't be very good.  The Paradiso will make much better quality coffee, but . . . I'll grant you there is probably someone who would pay a lot more for your Paradiso than for your Nespresso.

Good luck.

Cheers,
Jason

To be clear, I was looking for advice in unloading both of them.  I've had to scale back my coffee consumption, dont' have the space or ability to use either anymore.

thanks!

Archast, I would love to consider buying your Zappia ... mine is broken after faithfull service during 4 decades ... It belonged to my parents aswell ... Please advice if you are still looking for a good home for your Paradiso  !

All the best for 2011 ... meilleures salutations, Alain.

Alain-

I wish you'd written a couple of weeks earlier.  Alas, I sold the machine on E-Bay to someone who clearly didn't know what they were getting.

Cheers,
Brandon

Hi Brandon,

thanks for your lines ... it is a great little machine indeed ... and I still hope one will get across my way soon ...
Hopefully your eBay buyer will discover a new dimension of coffee brewing :-)

Take Care and best regards,

Alain.
