    Would you buy a 1992 Bezzera Commercial?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi,

    Just wanted to get some opinions before I put my money on the line. If you can get a really really cheap Bezzera from 1992 (says was in cafe), would it be worth it?
    How long do Bezzeras normally last?

    If it is sub $100 and you are prepared to spend a heap of time and possibly money then do it ;)

    A machine that has worked in a cafe since 1992 has lived more than one lifetime.

    But if you want a project, then buy it for whatever you think its worth.

    Just be aware that most projects remain projects, and those that dont, require many hours of labour.

    $300? looks like a good buy id say. but even if perfect working order id make sure it isnt completely trashed.

    perhaps its better to keep it to yourself rather than alerting others to it? :-?

    Honest Opinion, you asked:

    There were much much much better brands / models available at the time however that said I wouldnt buy ANY 1992 ex commercial espresso machine and I wouldnt take an ex commercial bezzera or gaggia of that age group even it if it was offered for free.

    You need to realise that a lot of these things offered for sale on fleabay would otherwise (if it were not for fleabays existence) go straight to the dump.

    Also as Dennis stated in a round about way above......you either want "the never ending project" for something to do out in the garage at night long term OR.......you want a coffee machine to use now.

    Rgdz,
    A.
