    Smile !!!SOLD!!! - [Sydney] Lelit PL041EM + Rancilio Rocky

    Hi everyone,

    I'm selling my Lelit PL041EM single boiler espresso machine and Rancilio Rocky grinder.
    Each bought new from Jetblack Espresso in early 2012, used daily until a few months ago.
    Selling because my coffee habits have changed and I now buy coffee out most of the time at places close to work and home.
    Both machines have been looked after and are in good condition.

    The Lelit has always been water backflushed after each use, and chemical backflushed every few weeks. It has some scuffs here and there, as you would probably expect after 5 years of continuous use.
    The Rocky has been cleaned monthly on average by removing the hopper and upper grinding burr to thoroughly clean out old coffee. The plastic outlet chute has cracked slightly but is still functional (this part is able to be replaced).

    These are great quality machines and I've really enjoyed using them over the years. The Lelit makes nice and consistent espresso shots and the Rocky produces a good consistent grind. With care I'd expect them to last for many years.

    Included in the sale:
    - JetBlack Espresso PreciseFit tamper (sized for the Lelit portafilter baskets), with soft storage pouch
    - Tamping mat
    - Group head cleaning brush
    - Single, double and blind filter baskets
    - Lelit plastic dosing spoon and plastic tamper
    - Clean Machine descaler (for boiler descaling)
    - Clean Machine espresso machine cleaner (for backflushing)
    - Owner's manuals
    - Lelit user guide provided by Jetblack Espresso
    - Original purchase receipts.

    Asking $600 for the pair. Pick up only in Sydney (Summer Hill, Inner West).
    I think this is a pretty fair price for the condition, around half the cost of buying new today.

    Note: I don't have the original boxes, but can source a box to put them in that will get them home.

    Please send a PM if interested!

    Regards,
    Harlan

    Here's an opportunity for someone to get fully set up at a very fair price, about the only thing missing is a steaming jug.

    Both machines look to have been well maintained, well worth a look.

    Thanks Yelta!

    That's correct, the only thing missing is a steaming jug. I'm keeping the pair that I have because I've got a Bellman stovetop machine which I'm keeping for occasional use.

    niccarter, I'm selling because my coffee habits have changed. I buy coffee at work during the week, and there are good coffee places very close to where I live now that I go to on weekends - including one right around the corner!

    Sounds good, are you willing to split them up? I'm more interested in the machine than in the grinder.

    Hi, I would be interested in the grinder without the machine, depending on price (and the cost of a replacement spout). Any ideas on a price split?

    I'm happy to split the pair, no problem.

    $380 for the Lelit PL041EM
    $220 for the Rancilio Rocky

    (I'd update the original post to reflect this, only it seems I cannot!)

    Regards,
    Harlan

    Thanks. FYI, the first ad I have found for a replacement spout is $39. If I want to proceed I will PM you

    The cracked spout is a common thing with the rocky. Not really an issue, use the $39 to get some yummy beans instead.

    Great machines these, GLWS.

    Cheers
