Complete semi-professional home espresso set-up, put together by me over the past ¾ year.   The espresso machine was bought used here and completely serviced and upgraded by Chris Coffee (US) prior to pick-up by me (and bringing up to the Great White North).  All other listed items were new.

Selling, since my wife and I are getting a new car and deciding on some home renos.  Sigh – I’ll just have to put a set like this together again a number of years from now.

Included (as pictured):

Quickmill Andreja espresso machine:  E61 group head, recently serviced and working perfectly.  Has a PID installed in the grouphead for accurate temperature surfing.  Upgraded steam joystick (easier to froth milk).  Only appropriate distilled water blend was used to avoid scaling, and was backflushed/cleaned each week.  Comes with double and single-spout portafilters, double, single and blind-flush basket, and VST double basket.  

Baratza Vario grinder – variable, programmable time settings, and macro/micro grind-levers to either side of chute vary from powdery Turkish grind to rubble French press and everywhere in-between.  Consistent and reliable grind.  Cleaned with Grindz every week (3 more sachets included, as shown).  Approx. 35 lbs have passed through it.

Two tampers – one convex surface, other flat surface and milled specifically for VST double filter.  Also includes Orphan Espresso ‘SlapShot’ for knocking-down grinds and acting as a surface for tamping (i.e., not ruining your counters), and Orphan Espresso dosing funnel.

Two Espro milk frothing jugs (12oz and 20oz) plus clipping milk thermometer with froth-range indicated in green.

Cafelat knockbox, Cafelat grouphead cleaning brush (with replacement bristles), ¾ container of Joe Glo (backflusing) cleaner, micro-scale (for determining appropriate dosing time for the Vario), plug-in 7-day electronic outlet timer (no need to keep it on 24/7), four small and two larger TightVac vacuum holders (extend the life of freshly-roasted coffee).  Four measuring shot glasses (two squat Starbucks, two taller and fluted).

Will also include espresso/cappuccino cups (shown).

Normal price (new) for the foregoing (including taxes here in Canada), placing a value of a new Andreja at $1595, approx: $2,900.

I am selling for $1550 (that's $100 cheaper than other places I'm advertising, in honour of the good deals I myself have received here and respect for the CG world).  

I am really hesitant to package everything up and ship - I'm in Ottawa (Canada), and would prefer a nearby Canuck CGer to step-up here with any interest.

Believe it's a great deal for someone getting started and getting everything they need.

Happy to provide pics to people who ask - can't seem to get anything down (reasonably) to 75kb for posting here - any suggestions would be more than welcome in that regard.


Cheers.

C.

Wow what a hell of a deal!

Are you willing to sell the vario separately?

First, CraigA - many thanks - I'll try that over the next couple of crazy/hectic days.  For those interested, I'm more than happy to send uncompressed pictures if you email me.

STG and Saranoelle - at this point, I'd really like to keep things as a package, for someone in or around the Ottawa area who just wants a one-stop-shop for the set-up.  That said, should it get to the point where that's not going to work, I'd consider you each first-in-line for those items (respectively).

Also (for all), as this was not likely clear, my $ is in Canadian currency.


Cheers.

BB - handy - tx - never realized our dollar was doing so well now!  Maybe I should switch to US$ for this sale, just to have a safe stash for the coming apocalypse (or, maybe, a trip down south).
