Wow this looks like a good deal if it is in the shape the seller says it is:
This is the first model made, the 67.
It's a machine that's built to last.
Very easy to use, clean and maintain.
-use grounds box
-2 shot basket
This machine is lightly used and in very good condition.
The Cremina has a cult following among coffee aficionados.
