Posted Thu May 31, 2012, 9:02am Subject: Saeco Aroma ***SOLD***
I just upgraded to a Gaggia Classic and am putting my Saeco Aroma up for sale. It is the older model with the flip switches instead of the buttons and is the black model. In spite of it's age, this machine looks virtually new inside and works great. The only reason I replaced this machine is because I got a bad case of "upgraditis"... lol. I removed the pressurizing apparatus from the portafilter as soon as I got this machine and I will include them in a separate package in the event you wish to reinstall them in the portafilter, although I can not guarantee they will work when you do so. Many Saeco Aroma owners have stated that when reinserting the pressurizing disk and spring that they don't get the best results. I wanted real espresso so I elected not to use the pressurized pf. Also included is the portafilter and both a single and a double filter basket. I am including a nice stainless steel tamper with a rosewood handle and will also throw in two new, never used crystal glasses that are perfect for Americanos. These glasses will fit under the portafilter since this machine does not include a grate (drip tray). I bought the machine without a grate and started to order a grate from Seattle Coffee Gear but found out that I enjoyed pulling the Americanos straight into the glass so I never did order one. The price is around $15 if you want to order one, but I can almost guarantee you that you will not use it once you get it. This machine is a good one and if no one shows interest I will keep it as a backup to use if I ever decide to mod my Classic. It looks good and only has a few minor scuffs from normal use... no dents or big scratches. Everything works well, even the steam wand works great. All lights work and the switches are nice and tight. As I said before, this machine has apparently not been used a lot and I don't know why not... it is a good one.Email me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org By the way, the price does include shipping.

I have added a picture from the eBay auction from when I bought the machine a couple of months ago. The picture does not show the filter baskets, the tamper, or the nice glasses that are included in this sale.
These machines are not difficult to sell if they are in good condition and you offer a fair deal. I threw in a $30 tamper, some glassware, a box of Dezcal, and paid $25 to ship it double-boxed via UPS. You can sell anything if you sell good merchandise at a fair price.
