Posted Sat Aug 11, 2012, 7:24am Subject: *SOLD* Versalab M3 - 2.5 months old
I'm selling my Versalab M3 grinder. I purchased it new directly from Versalab on April 6th 2012, there was a 6 week wait time for the build, and I received it on May 18th. So, it has seen about 2.5 months of use. From what I understand, it will be under warranty through May, 18 2013. I used this grinder very lightly while getting to know my La Marzocco Shot Brewer. Selling because I will be moving out to California, where I will have the space for a big Titan conical, probably the Robur E. I only ground medium roasted coffee like Verve and Stumptown, and lighter coffee like Ritual's seasonal espresso blends. Grinder has seen somewhere in the ballpark of 10 - 15 pounds of coffee.
I added the 58 mm portafilter clip, which I found to be very useful - no need to hold the PF at all during grinding. Original purchase was $1700 (grinder) + $175 (PF clip) + $50 (shipping) = $1925.
I'd like to sell this for $1550, I'll pay for shipping, and you get to skip the 4 - 6 week waiting period! Included are the original packaging, the scale that I never applied to the funnel, and the allen wrenches, fruit wax, and instruction manuals that will allow you to properly maintain the grinder. My cousin made a glass top for it to stop any popcorning of the beans. The glass top rattles when grinding, so it could use a few dots of silicone where it touches the brass funnel. If you want the top, I'll throw it in. This grinder is like-new. I'm just opting into the world of ginormous kitchen appliances. E-mail me if you'd like higher quality pics.

Thanks for all the interest! Fastest I've ever sold something. Andre, I loved talking to your friend. I wish I didn't have to tell him no, but another CoffeeGeeker was in my in-box first and I was already in touch with him.
