Online auction advice for Rancilio Silvia & Rocky
Hey first time poster although gained so much helpful advice here in anticipation of eventuating into a coffee snob. Currently on the search for a grinder and then a machine when the time is right.
So quick question. I've found a Rancilio Silvia V4 & Rocky Grinder on a well known online auction site for sale as 'brand new' with '2 year limited warranty' for $640 all in. This sounds like it must have fallen off the back of a truck to me, or possibly reconditioned equipment.
Anyone got experience or advice on this offering?
Sounds dodgy without knowing where it's coming from mate.
Be very careful...
Definitely dodgy. Too good to be true is often a scam... Be very careful.
Theres 3 of them currently listed, between $600-800. Machine, grinder and drawer.
All sellers have 0 feedback and very dodgy names.
One of them have even copied the text from another reputable seller's ad.
Steer well clear.
Yep- seller on EBay since 2016 and zero feedback.
Avoid like the plague.
Ask if you can pick up and they'll disappear
Ahh, alas too good to be true!
Thanks for the input guys. For all the reasons listed above I shall be a little more patient on my quest for home coffee heaven!
