!!!WITHDRAWN!!! - Melbourne - La Marzocco Linea Mini with Pre-infusion Mode
Hey there, Folks.
Up for sale is my much-loved Linea Mini modified by Rick Bond, The Coffee Machinist, to include a pre-infusion mode - Makes an amazing difference to the result in the cup.
Rick has also done a specialty finish of gunmetal to the outer panels. The colour is great with brushed metal effects and almost a look of rust splashes over the stainless steel.
It is truly unique
The machine dates from mid 2015, Rick modified it from new and had it for almost a year and I have had it for just over a year. I know Rick took exceptional care of the Linea. Since I have had it in my care, it has been used once a day on average using filtered water and has always been kept clean and back flushed after each use.
This is a superb unit to use as it heats up quickly, has a quiet and powerful pump and is designed to operate like a commercial unit in a domestic environment. The pre-infusion is so cool and a great time can be spent changing pressures to get different results.
The steam is nothing short of awesome.
Anyone thinking of stepping up here will be well rewarded with great coffee and a fun time making it.
Selling this baby has been a difficult decision but I have a large collection of machines and am getting serious pressure from the family to make some room in our little unit.
The Linea Mini includes the wonderfully heavy single and double stainless steel porta filters, 14 & 17 gram baskets, a blind basket, the La Marzocco super heavy stainless tamper and the great little milk jug and original instructions.
I am asking $5,500
Considering the base asking these days is similar and Rickís extensive mods both internally and externally, I think it is a fair price.
Saturday Night Bump.
Folks, I am dropping this beauty to $5K.
If it's not snapped up by next weekend, I'll take it down and keep it as I do love it!
Can you take this down for me. I'm not getting much interest and have decided better to hang onto this little baby.
Thanks for your help.
Iím honestly surprised you havenít gotten more interest. Two things, Rick Bondís mods are brilliant (I speak from experience as I have a Rick modified LMLM on my bench) and also the price of Linea Minis has just gone up!
