About Used Coffee Gear

Used Coffee Gear is about connecting buyers and sellers of high end commercial coffee equipment, specialising in high end commercial espresso machines. As the global coffee scene explodes, demand for quality equipment is increasing. While there is plenty of good used machinery available, finding the right machine can be difficult as there aren't many dedicated marketplaces. All listings are currently free of charge for both sellers and buyers, so we invite you to take advantage and browse or list your machine today.

Why sell on UsedCoffeeGear.com?

Used Coffee Gear exists to faciliate timely sales at fair market values for high quality machinery. Unlike other auction sites, UCG has a specialised readership who are specifically looking to buy equipment. By focusing on this niche we aim to ensure that each buyer finds a machine, and each seller finds a buyer for a fair price. Each listing is automatically broadcast through our twitter accounts ensuring that every new listing automatically reaches hundreds of interested individuals and businesses. You are free to list your machine on other services simultaneously, however we ask that you remove listings immediately if they become unavailable.
