    Rancilio takes a hike...

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Wishing to inform everyone that Rancilio (and therefore Aussie importers) have increased their prices by 4% (the second such increase in a year)

    The RRP of Silvia is now on the wrong side of $820 and that of the Rocky doserless is $495...It wont be long til a Silvia is more expensive than a VBM Levetta *::)

    If you are thinking of getting one, move quickly as prices will rise if they havent already done so.

    Wow. Thats crazy. When the Rocky was $440, I thought that the K3 Touch at $500 was a way better deal. Why on earth would you ever buy a Rocky at the same price as a K3 Touch?! Bad move, Rancilio importers - way to price your products out of the market.

    When I got my Rocky I dont recall anything on this site pointing to a K3 at similar money...I dont recall the grinder review thread being up then. The Rocky still seems to be the quality smaller grinder of choice for the home.

    Cheers

    PS. Helps out the second hand market for the Rocky.

    Another thought - it makes the choice between an EM6910 and a Silvia a little easier for some (not all:))

    Hey guys,

    I must have got a great deal on my new Sylvia. Got it for $750, and they threw in 1kg of coffee, a milk jug, thermometer, and Sunbeam bang bang. Not bad I think. The rep even said he would do the Rocky Doserless for $400. If as you say the prices are going up, I better get back and buy the grinder.

    Cheers.

    Buy it immediately Izzi- even if you have to beg your mum for a loan ;)

    The guy either stole it or hes insane.....There is no margin whatsoever in that deal....
