    Where has the carezza gone?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I wanted to get a Gaggia Carezza, reading many a good review I thought that $300 was a good starting block.

    Not imported anymore!

    Dont suppose anyone has any recommendaitons based round this model? The Cubika is crappy by comparison and is now the same price ($320 myer).

    Just when you think you find something good they dont make it anymore!

    Carezzas not imported anymore? :o

    Even if theyre not youd have to be able to find some in stock still.

    Try Harvey Norman or The Good Guys. Ill bet you London to a Brick theyve still got plenty. :)

    It still beats the opposition hands-down in the value for money stakes. I used one for about 2 years of absolute problem-free service. Shots are nearly as good as Silvias IMO. Just doesnt have that bulletproof build quality.

    Thats ok - but its been refirbished. And not knowing how old it is... or how much use its had... I think Ill stick with a new one.

    Judging on Alan Frews article about the corrosion on some of the machines with alloy boilers after a few years use I would prefer to know where its come from and where its going.

    If I was on ebay looking Id be bidding on the Classic which is round $280 - or the one that got snapped up on Friday night for $305.

    theres a few refurbished carezzas sold by extrastock on ebay. i wouldnt recommend a refurbished one from there after reading a negative feedback regarding crappy condition of a refurbished machine .....although if you are patient then keep your eyes open for a good deal from extrastock on a new machine......my gaggia super auto is being delivered next week ;D

    AndyCJ,

    You may like to know that The Myer store in Adelaide (City branch) still have the Gaggia Carezza on sale @ a markdown price of $249.

    Good Luck

    I did pick up the Carezza from Airport West - I paid $310, which is probably a bit much, but Im so happy with it I just dont care! :)

    I have seen the extrastock guy on ebay doing these and classics and evolutions... they would definatly be a good buy to get one.... or at least to keep an eye on it and see if you can get a bargin.

    Behmor Brazen - $249 - Free Freight
    hadnt looked on ebay for a while..., sort of wish I hadnt :o cause then I wouldnt have seen the two group Cimbali in great nick and Gino Rossi Grinder that went for just for over $500!!

    Maybe the 15amp plug scared the home buyers away but this was a very serious bargain.
