I am looking to sell a barely used 2 group Barlume for a reasonable price.  This machine was only used to test espressos for our micro roastery, and its a bit overkill for just doing that.  In its lifetime it pulled under 300 shots, and it was purchased brand new.  I still have everything that came with the machine, and I will through in some extra cleaning supplies to the buyer since I will not need as much as I have.  We had bought this thinking we would expand and some sort of retail front, but our expansion ended up only being for inventory.  The tape mark on the left hand side was where a shot timer was located.

 

Here are some photos, and you can email me for video of it being used if you would like and even more photos and pricing.

I'd love it if you could email me info on it, possibly the video as well.

Thanks

Not to nitpick too much... BUT to me the water in the sight glass looks a bit cloudy. Could it be just the way the pics were snapped? Also, if you really want to make a good impression even better, polishing all the metal on that beast might make all the difference. Last thing, try removing that tape residue left behind from the shot timer.  
I knew the residue was there when I took the pics, and alas even with polishing the reflection on the flash makes the water and metal sparkle in a way I am not happy with :(

bumping with a video of the machine pulling a single

The shot in question is, believe it or not, Eight O'clock coffee.  We did a mini series (still editing) showing that espresso is an extraction method not just a bean type/blend and we used the cheapest whole bean coffee we could find to prove this.  So the machine does in fact pull shots well!

Ball park range for price?
Yeah I can certainly believe it's Eight O'Clock as it didn't look good at all. Personally if I were trying to sell equipment I'd dial it in with the very best of everything I had onhand to make it look as impressive as possible at that moment.

I have pulled shots of many a finer shot than that on my machine, as noted it was done to demonstrate that you COULD pull a shot with any coffee.

 

That being said, even if I did dial it in for one nice coffee (be it anything) it wouldn't matter unless whoever I was selling it to was using that exact same type.  All in all the machine still works great.  I will post another vid of it pulling something nice here this week.

 

@John Message me for pricing.

I am presently looking at and considering a new Barlume.   Please give me a price on your machine if you have not already sold it please.


Thanks,


Bob
