Hi All,

I am looking at trying to value some equipment for a potential purchase and was wondering if anyone could tell me what a reasonable price would be for a used La Marzocco FB80 (2 group) and an Anfim super caimano grinder?


Also whats everyones thoughts on the 2 bits of kit?


Thanks :)

£'s Difficult to answer unless you know age , condition , water used in them , why they are selling ( upgrade or bankrupt )

If you wanna put leg work into machines and take a chance there are some tasty 2 groups that can be got

Also might be worth dropping Callum T a line on here , he sometimes has 2 groups for sale that he has brought up to scratch with his own fair hand )

LM's are meant to be work horses if maintained right , Caimano are capable of making tasty espresso ( the last wbc champ used one if that counts for anything ) . JP prestige has some Anfim's in his cafe and is a bit fan ...

I write a blog, it's nothing to do with coffee ...

Thanks Mrboots2u,

both bits of kit are from a shop that I am possibly looking to purchase, they are around 4 years old i believe and in very good condition.

the LM has only ever been used with a filter and I believe serviced regularly to (as much as needed within the 4 years)

its in a coffee shop at the moment with a filter connected, as far as i know its a decent commercial grade one and I believe it was also changed fairly recently.

just trying to get an idea of their worth, and opinions on them?

Maybe you can start by working out some sort of basic depreciation calculation - like -10% for initial purchase (immediate loss of value when leaving the shop!) and then something like 10% value per year (so 1 year old is 20% below new price?). This might make sense for a business, who can potentially write off the depreciation as a business expense.
