    !!!WITHDRAWN!!! - FS:(Central Coast) Myway Izzo Vivi PID HX Machine

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    For sale i have my beloved HX machine that i've owned since 2014 (2011 model).

    I was the second owner and bought it from Talk Coffee.

    About a year into ownership the PID started to fail, so i took it to Jetblack Espresso and they replaced the PID and serviced it for me. Since then it has been trouble free.
    It has been used daily for 5 years making two coffees a day and 3 on weekends. It steams like a champ, and the shots taste amazing. It is well looked after and gets backflushed with chemicals every week. Water is from my 2 stage filter and our water isn't classified as hard.
    There is minor surface rust that i was warned about before purchase, and this hasn't changed in 5 years. It looks exactly the same and is on the insde chassis... and is about as tame as you could imagine, but i still need to mention it so potential buyers are aware.
    The machine doesn't seem to need a cooling flush in between shots, even when sitting idle for long periods. I always do anyway, but it almost never sizzles like they usually do.
    The reason for upgrading is simply to move to a plumbable machine with a quieter rotary pump. I don't believe my coffees will taste any better on a machine that will cost 3-4x as much, but i am after convinience and feel like a new toy.

    It comes with a single and double portafilter.

    Asking $1200

    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks mate. Yes it's been super reliable and produces great coffee, i'm just hoping someone see's the value in this over a certain popular appliance that's been flying off the shelves (of which i had 3 replacements under warranty before moving to a proper machine).

    Im a bit apprehensive to ship it at the moment, only because I'd rather the buyer come and view the machine and see it in action to make sure they're happy with it. (I just realized i bought it sight unseen myself, hah).

    I wouldn't even know how to ship something so heavy without risk of damage.

    Mods please mark this as withdrawn

    I've decided to take this down for now as it still produces wonderful coffee and has plenty of life left in it. I've managed to keep upgraditis at bay for now by ordering a new grinder.
    I should have been 100% certain before listing (which i thought i was), but have had a change of heart and decided not to uneccesarily spend another 2-3k.
    Thank you for those who have shown interest!
