This machine is in pristine condition. It is beautiful, perfection. I purchased it new, at the end of 2007, when I opened a coffee shop. It cost me $8000. My shop was only open for a year, during which time the machine was professionally and meticulously maintained. It wasn't a very busy shop, hence the short amount of time it was open, so the machine was only gently used. When I closed the business, the machine was professionally uninstalled & has since been stored indoors, covered and climate-controlled. I kept it because I had dreamed of one day opening another coffee shop - or having it installed in my home - but it hasn't happened yet, so it's time for the Aurelia to go to a new home. Bring me your best offer & it could be yours!
