    FS: ACS Vesuvius (Canberra)

    Very reluctant sale. Just not getting the full use out of it with regards to pressure profiling. First 9 months I regularly changed profiles however nowadays it remains on the same profile. Will be downgrading to DB or hx machine.

    15 months old. Over $6k new.

    Both wood and acetal handles included.

    Will be packed in wooden crate.

    Located in Canberra. Shipping at buyers expense.

    $5000ono

    Will post images later on. Will be sad to see her go but want someone to use it as it was meant...

    The one time someone posts something shiny in Canberra, we're away on a posting to Sri Lanka! Not really in the market right now, please do keep me posted danebuoy- could be tempted...

    FS:-ACS-Vesuvius-Canberra

    Pictures up from iPad. Some minor scratches on drip tray otherwise great condition. Quality build. Will probably regret selling but right now am not using to full potential. At most making 1 or 2 coffees per day, mostly espressos.

    To sweeten this already amazing deal, I'll throw in a Pullman tamper.

    Someone get on this before I come to my senses and decide to keep this glorious machine.

    Geezlouise...Not much more than a new dual boiler. I'm tempted to grab it myself...

    +1 to Chris' comment above.
    Just because it has PP doesn't mean you have to take a 1.5K+ loss, danebouy.

    Like Chris says a DB is a DB .... some have bells, some have whistles, some have both, but at the end of the day they are all DB's.

    The Vesuvius is a wonderful machine. I fired mine up this morning after being in the midst of a vintage lever frenzy for a while.....and it truly delivers the goods.

    Like you, Danebouy, I keep the same profile for my favourite beans. It took a while for me to arrive at this profile but it is the best extraction of the many, many possibilities that I have been able to find for this particular bean that is roasted just the way that I like it most.

    Can't help thinking that after selling your current machine for $4500, the changeover in $$ after buying another dual-boiler will leave you with a (very) small amount of folding stuff and a lesser machine.

    But if you have made your mind up and the Vesuvius just has to go, it is a real opportunity for someone else who is after endless degrees of tweakability in an immensely satisfying machine to use and own. An ordinary dual-boiler machine will not be able to do what the Vesuvius can do.

    It's a very nice machine, I would have been very interested if I wasn't changing continents. I'm sure someone will take it off your hands given a bit of time

    Have skimmed the thread a few times. Cant help but feel that you need some more encouragement to stay with your current machine. When you sell this machine for around $4k which machine specifically do you aim to buy and what do you see as the advantage of buying it?

    Lifestyle changes are the main driver for sales, whilst I still have a passion for coffee, the household consumption has gone from just under 1kg a week to 1 espresso per day! Can I justify having a $6k machine making 1 coffee a day? I have already off loaded my mazzer SJ E to a mate.

    I will look at perhaps the oscar ii and the sette and perhaps pocket $2k.

    Can't believe this is still available! Would have bought it if I had not purchased my gs3. Cash is king sometimes. Actually all the time!

    Fired-up my Vesuvius again this morning and poured some absolute killer shots.

    I can't figure why anyone would buy a 'normal' twin-boiler machine when this one is available at a beaut price...and why this one hasn't sold yet.

    Good luck with the sale Danebouy..

    Some fleeting interest and a couple of lowball offers. May consider trade on the right machine and cash difference.

    Lowball offers grrrr. Sorry to hear that Danebouy.

    It is more than worth your asking price..........why can't a serious buyer just pay that?

    Yeh I guess, there's only so many people wanting to pay $4k+ for a coffee machine, regardless of value. I'd be in there like Flynn if I didn't already have a lever machine that I'm very happy with.

    Last price drop to $4200ono - without tamper and without delivery. Will leave it up for grabs for the next few weeks until end of Mar - I go overseas for 6 weeks in Apr/May. If it's not sold by then I'll just end up keeping it.
