Espresso Vision - Roast Vision potential group buy.


Recommended Posts

As some of you may be aware - I been using one of these for a few months now as part of my roasting workflow. They are not being offered for sale in the UK at present. I was able to get mine through my sister who lives in NY at  present.

 

Anyway over on the Cormorant Facebook group a number of folk were able to organise a group buy which was in part handled by a US remailer.

 

I already have a unit, but know of at least one other person on here that is interested in obtaining one.

 

The unit normally retails for $299 plus shipping - but if 5 or more people are interested we could get this down to $225 plus shipping and duties. I thought I could ask my sister if she would be happy to foward the package onto me and then I would mail out to individuals once they arrived in the UK.

 

To be clear I’m not looking to make any money out of this but offering this in the spirit of this community.

 

If anyone is interested please let me know and I will look further into the costs of shipping and import duties that may be levied.

 

 

Mods if this isn’t appropriate - let me know and feel free to remove.

 

Cheers Phil

Right - so that’s potentially 5, so I will get some details together in terms of import costs etc.

2.  EricC

3. CJV8

4. Rob

5. Dartmoor

Been watching a lot of the Cropster Roasting series on YouTube. The latest one features a Colombian Natural and Rob Hoos is one of the guest roasters / looks like he’s using a Roastvision too, as well as a Lighttells

So I can get the unit cost shipped to my sister in NY at $226. It’s then shipping and VAT to the UK - checking duties but these came in at 0 for the other group buy as it’s based on a pulse ox board. 
 

Assuming it’s just shipping and VAT - we’re looking at $284 to my door + special delivery to individuals.

Will confirm later - let me know if you’re all still happy to proceed.

cheers Phil

I think you target the wrong cat and the other one too casually. 👍😂

Right Everyone

I have a coupon code which I will message to everyone once we have a confirmed list so far I have the following confirmed 

 

1.   RDC8

2.  EricC

3. CJV8

4. Rob

5. Dartmoor

6. Black Cat Coffee

7. 

Coffee by the Casuals has dropped out so there's one space left - though I'm sure we can make it work with 6 if necessary. The coupon will get you the Espresso Vision

for $226 delivered to my sister in NY. She will then forward the box to me and I will request the balance from individuals once I have then final amount - but a discussed I expect this to be an additional $55-60 per piece.

Hope that is satisfactory.

Thanks Philip

I'll take the 7th, please. Sorry to mess you around - I thought you needed to move super quickly and I knew I wouldn't have chance to look that day. 

Looks like an interesting piece of kit. I do have a Tonino, but this would remove the need to use a portafilter for the sample. Thanks for arranging it, @Beeroclock

Ok - I'm still waiting to hear back from Eric and Rob.

I'm going to send the coupon code to those that have confirmed - so the process will be - order from Espresso Vision with the code and you will pay 

$299 + $10 (delivery) - discount $85 = $224 

This seems a bit convoluted - but we're working with Zach's online system - it actually works out $2 cheaper.

Once everyone has paid - the units will be shipped to my sister, who will forward them to me. 

I will then send these out to you once you've paid the balance import duty and shipping.

Hope that's satisfactory 

Thanks Philip
