Posted Sat Oct 5, 2013, 8:08am Subject: Value of used CC1
I have my CC1 on Craigslist and have had very little interest in it which I find surprising because I thought I had a fair price and it is a nice little machine.
I have had a few issues with my CC1 but I have resolved them and I now have it making shots very close to the quality of the shots of my V2B. I was not able to get the shots to this quality level though until after I bought the V2B and built a device to measure brew head water temperature. What I did was I raised the brew temperature (via the P9 temperature offset programming) until it matched the brew temperature of my V2B and shot quality was much better. I feel that this machine has been fine tuned and ready to make great espresso for another coffee lover. I want to sell it on craigslist because I really do not want to ship it even though I still have all of the original packaging. I have it priced at $475.00 on Craigslist. It has been listed for at least 6 weeks. Is this a fair price for it? If not, I may elect to give it to a family member if I have to lower the price much more.

You can set notifications for CL and I would think majority of people have well known machines and grinders like SJs etc to alert when popped up, pry of never heard of the CC1 so they have no clue even if they come across it browsing. Too bad as its a kick ass machine for the price.

I didn't want to ship the Silvia either, but selling it quickly requires a niche market. Space is not a luxury I have right now, but if you do then just wait it out and it will sell locally eventually.
After a week on CL I didn't get one response for my Silvia. The demand for used equipment in Florida is weak. It is probably weak in OK too. On the other hand check out Seattle's CL, it is littered with great coffee equipment. I've seen quite a few CC1 posted there and gone within a day or so. It's a good thing I don't live there because I'd have a lot more equipment around.
Anyway, within an hour or posting it on CG I had multiple responses and sold it that day.
