  • !!!SOLD!!! - For Sale Brasilia Portofino 2 group Coffee Machine and Rocky Grinder

    For sale is a Brasilia Portofino Coffee Machine and Rancillio Rocky Grinder

    The Machine:

    1998 2 Group commercial machine, I have owned and used the machine at home for 4 years and previous to this was resident in a low turn over coffee shop in Liverpool.

    * it is a 15 amp machine however for the first 3 years I had it running on a 10 amp GPO as it pulls only around 12 amps by my measurements.

    It has 3 group handles as follows:

    1 Naked Portafilter with 3 shot basket
    2 further Portafilters with options of blank, single and double
    1 single spout and two double spouts

    It has been used exclusively at home for the past 4 years pulling about 4-6 shots a day. It has never let me down these machines are bullet poof and there are plenty of spare parts available, just have a look on coffee parts.

    As you can see from the pictures I have added some nice LED lights which is great for watching the pore from the naked filter to perfect your technique and just gives a nice ambiance too.

    I have recently (one month ago) replaced the shower screens, o-ring seals and protafilter seals and will include spare sets of seals, o-rings and shims for each group head.

    The machine was back-flushed and cleaned weekly and is in very good all round working condition for it's age, testament to the build quality.

    So why am I selling I hear you ask, well my wife wanted a little more bench space back and while window shopping I impulse bought a Wega Compact 2 group machine (yes I know bright shiny things) and I also upgraded my rocky grinder to a Mazzer SJ so the grinder got bigger so the machine had to get smaller!!!

    The Grinder:

    Rancillio Rocky approx 3.5 years old and only done 4-6 shots daily also, it is in great condition and has been cleaned regularly. I have stripped it down and given it a through clean as you can see in the pictures, the rocky and the Brasilia go well together.

    I am selling both together for $850. I am not keen on posting due to weight, I am in Berowra NSW just north of Hornsby so local pickup would be best.

    Please ask me any questions you like I am happy to answer honestly.

    I will attach a link to a web page where you can view a short video of it working.

    Good luck with the sale coffeenator,

    Prospective purchasers: DO NOT do this...House fire and you are on your own. 15A machines either need to be modified to run on 10A or to be run on a 15A circuit.

    Replacing a plug does not equal modification...

      Hi TC

      Of course you are correct it is not my intention to encourage use of 15 amp rated machines on a 10 amp GPO, it will need to be modified if this is the intended use.

      I appreciate you making this point, it does come with a 15 amp plug.
