posted on craigslist as well  - first with money gets it. $600  down from 700

I am selling my QuickMill Anita espresso machine for lack of use.  My stomach can not tolerate espresso.

The current model can be seen at http://www.chriscoffee.com/products/home/espresso/anitanew

This one is about 7 linear years old and does not have the top adjustable OPV, hinged cover etc that the new version has.
This has not been used for the last year.  I bought it from Cathi in Apr 2011, and she had not used it for a year before I bought it.
I replaced the E61 rods and cam gaskets in May 2011 so the rods have had little use - action is good.
I replaced the pump in Dec 2011, but didn't need to so you get a spare pump.
I replaced the OPV valve gasket rubber thingie - rather T shapped plug. I have pic of expanded OPV I got from Eric.
This has the Eric Svendson E61 nose temperature probe which makes it a lot easier to surf the pull temp.
Also includes my homemade version of a Greg Scace device (reads temp under pressure at portafilter.)(K type thermocouple, no meter)
3 portafilter handles, one is bottomless for triple basket and temp device above.
3 baskets: 1 double, 1 triple, 1 blank for backflushing.
Narrow mesh group head screen (wide mesh is installed and better).
3 various spouts for the portafilter holders - I don't use spouts.
3 packets of Dezcal to decalcify it.

I pulled and descaled the nose mushroom and screen and nozzle when I received it (they were pretty clean) so I feel the machine is pretty clean as it stands.
I regularly pulled the group screen when I was using it (the wide mesh screen stays pretty clean).
I regularly used Caffeza to clean coffee oils from the group head and lever valves.
So I feel machine is pretty clean and fully functional.

She looks beautiful.  Needs a home espresso-holic!

Can easily demo and/or pop top.
CASH ONLY.  I've been burnt.
Will not ship.  Must be seen in East Cambridge.  

NO PARTIAL SALES - THIS IS A KILLER DEAL.

Craigslist is such fun - she wants me to ship to topeka. Yeah right.

Price lowered to $600. works great, looks great!

Yeah, timing is most everything, but I hadn't had that espresso at a cafe from a beautiful La Maz, that subsequently tore my stomach apart.  Currently sipping on a keurig decaf.

No, I'm going to hold on to the Franken-Macap - for the Keurig - overkill, but I could never get back anywhere near what it's worth.

forgot - also replaced lever cam and steam shaft valve (QuickMill used Isomac parts for the E61 and valves)(Steffano's).
Bottomless pf holder is Rancillio from ChrisCoffee.
