    Eterna

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi,
    I have to sell this ETERNA Espresso machine but I don't have a clue what it's worth.. Could you guys give me some input ? It's fully restored.

    you could try one of the auction places and see if they will give you a valuation.

    Welcome to CS.

    Your machine is very beautiful, shame to have to move it on.

    I too have an Eterna, older and much more "minimalistic', less ornate than yours, bought as a wreck, also now fully restored.

    These machines are extremely rare. That doesnt automatically make them worth a lot, just that they would be difficult to "value" in a general sense. I think you are in the realms of whatever someone wants to pay, and whatever you are prepared to accept....and this will differ acccording to individual prospective purchasers....

    You could try contacting Enrico Maltoni (google him) in Italy. But I guess anything he tells you will only be a rough guide.

    And of course, you should keep an eye on anything of similar era going on the bay of weevils and other similar sites, to give you an idea of what people will pay for "similar".

    Good luck, and I hope that helps.

    Tks for the info. Yes, it's unfortunate. We are selling the country house and there is no room for the machine downtown. It takes a lot of space on the courter top and I just don't have the room for it.. =(

    What state are you in. I think it looks awersome I suppose there would even be a few people on here who would be interested in it if you were thinking of selling.

    Canada

    Yes, I need to sell it. I'm open to offers. I'm just not sure what it's worth yet. I didn't have time to research this so far. I live in Montreal, qc, Canada. Easy to ship to the US.

    Wow! What a beauty! Talk about style. I just came to admire pretty much, I can't really offer any advice. It is such a shame to part with such a machine. Best of luck

    G'day and welcome "mxincanada"...

    Not sure if you realise it, but this an Australian based website community mate, and as much as a lot of us would like to own that beautiful machine/work of art, the shipping to Oz would no doubt be prohibitive.

    All the best with your sale though...

    There are quite a few US members here. The last figures I knew the US accounted for roughly 20% of our connections. Many of whom would no doubt love to have the Eterna if the price was right.

    Yes, I appreciate that fact Java...

    Some of the posts though, seem to indicate that not all responders were so aware...

    Wow! I never expected that figure. Very good to see CS has that level of diversity. :thumbup:

    Fantastic looking machine, almost looks like a real jukebox.
    Maybe you should put into storage unless this is your final move.
    I think there'd be a lot of interest in this in Canada, lots of Italians in Toronto and Montreal. kijiji may be worh a try.

    OP, Nice vintage machine..

    Two thumbs up to you!

    How did you even find this diamond in the rough?

    I cant wrap my head around your discovery of this vintage jewel....

    It's like a nice aged wine thats sitting undiscovered... a good vintage like a usual '71

    Don't ask me.. im not a wine expert (far from it really...) and its just for spicing up the conversation.

    MX in Canada - I'm in Ottawa. What's the ballpark price you'd be looking at? Of course, if it came to that, I could drive to Montreal ...
