New Espresso Machines Fri, 11/6/09 11:52 AM (permalink)
Hey guys, Im about to pick up some new espresso machines from Astra Manufacturing. Im trying to pickup a group of them to get the best price. If the people I've already got on board follow through, that gives me the buying power of 6 machines so I'll be able to get them for a great price (looking like about 27% off list which is considered 7% off wholesale since they usually take 20% off if you buy multiples for resale). Astra makes some of the best machines out there & for a good price. Plus they're made in america & over the years when Ive had to do work to my machines, I was able to fix them easily & locally sometimes with parts from the hardware store! Now the times Ive had to fix them where my fault because I am mobile & very hard on machines. My Astra has probably fallen off the cart in the trailer at least 5 times! And I've left it stored in the trailer over winter without draining it & freezing the pump. Anyhow, they're great machines. If anyone on the forum is thinking about adding an espresso machine to their restaurant, let me know & I'll get you a price worked up. Again, Im just a coffee shop thats picking up some new machines & trying to get the best possible price by buying in bulk, you'll get the same.

    I've still got these espresso machines available now at all times shipped straight from Astra for the same 27% discount. Im currently based in Aiken, SC until May then back to Memphis but I also travel all over doing shows. I've got a delivery in Charlotte next month for an Espresso machine. If anyone ever needs one, give me a call.

      Is there any value on old vintage brass machines and is ther anyone that you know that services them? I know where one is that stands maybe 4 1/2 feet high. It looks like it was built in the 30s or 40s...Russ

        Russ, the old Brass machines have a great worth, even as decor they are beautiful and command at least 5-7K
