  • !!!SOLD!!! - FS Lelit Mara

    Purchased from site sponsor Jetblack espresso 19 months ago.
    Lelit Mara (PL62)

    Has made mostly 2 to 3 coffees per day along with the occasional family gatherings.
    Always backflushed after each use and chemically cleaned every 2 to 3 weeks depending on usage. Only ever fed 2 stage filtered water around 40ppm general hardness.

    As with anything that I have owned and sold here it is in excellent mechanical condition. I gave it the full treatment late last year, new pressurestat, full group disassembly clean and lube, clean and lube taps / steam wand / hot water and checked everything for scale, which was very very light, but I gave it a weak solution manual descaling anyway.

    Usual wear and tear applies, drip tray scuffed and some minor scuffing on top tray where cups are stored.
    And the usual light scuffs around the lip of group.

    Over the coming days I will be giving it a look over and probably clean and lube the group / cam again for the sale and stop using it.

    Has an IMS competition shower screen which gives a much gentler even water distribution and is generally all round easier to keep clean. Also has squares of Dynamat stuck inside the chassis for sound / vibration buffering.

    Includes all the original accessories as mentioned below and original packaging, I will include a milk jug as well.
    Also has a naked portafilter.

    Not really sure about shipping such a machine, however if a buyer wants to help organize it I can work with that.
    Can give a full working demo if need be, central coast nsw 2261
    Pictures will be posted in coming days.

    $1500

      I've been thinking about getting one of these for a while, mainly because of compact footprint. I'm curious why you're selling it?

        I originally purchased based on the size factor. I had a small space and wanted to experience an e61 machine. Space / size is now less of an issue.

        My needs / wants have changed. I have developed a strong focus on roasting and manual brewing, espresso has become more of an occasional thing. There are other people around now that like to make espresso milk drinks more often but are less inclined to use the machine due to the manual / retro nature = its intimidating like driving a shiny old school car, steam performance is quite strong / quick.

        My dream machine is of one group commercial nature the likes of Slayer etc and is well out of my reach financially and space wise and I could not really justify the usage at present.

        Will probably end up " downgrading " to more of an " appliance " type machine that has buttons to be pushed.....

        If you like to stick to the same kind of espresso blends and make 1 or 2 coffees a day, with the occasional social situation requiring more and not leaving the machine on for extended periods and have a small space, this machine suits.

            To be honest that is a steal. Retails new at site sponsors for roughly 2300

              This is the dynamat for people that want to know what it looks like, this is inside where the water tank goes. There is ONE patch of similar size to those shown on each side of the inside of chassis. Makes a significant difference to pump noise / vibration.

              I have completely disassembled the group, clean and lubed. It was not very dirty as I only did it 4 months ago.
