GS3 delivery

I have received confirmation that the first batch of GS3's (eight of them) heading to Denmark will be shipped on December 22nd. It also looks like I may be lucky enough to get one of the first machines, i.e. the wait would be a lot shorter for me than I expected. I'm 100% on this yeat, but things are looking better than I expected. With good luck, I'll start the New Year with the GS3...

Final specs are still not available but production starts in a couple weeks' time and the price is 4.000 euros (US$5.000) flat before taxes at least in Denmark. Of course we have the pleasure of a 25% VAT here :(

Urge to kill rising ...

4000 Euro is a helluva lot. Add VAT and you're getting close to getting two-group LMs down here!

Yeah, that is a lot, but it only stings once :)

The Linea 1 group (semiauto) is about 10% more here, but which one of the two would you rather have?

Damn! I did not that the banking business was good - but not THAT good ;-)

Congratulations on your new machine!! I really look forward to reading/hearing about you experiences with the GS/3. However, I recall I read on your blog that you were going for the Andreja instead of the Silvia, because you didn't want to upgrade soon after - looks like you miscalculated something there!!?? ;-D

Also - heavily inspired by you blog and comments on CG, there is now an Andreja Top comming my way. I am however, a little scared that it is going to cost me a lot of money when you start writing about the GS3 :-|

Hi Søren,

Its not that good ;)

I think it's more down to prioritising things and I think the are not that many nutcases who put this type of money into a coffee machine...

Yeah, I look forward to receiving the new machine as well. I thought that the Andreja would last me a good few more years and it's not that I would not have been happy with it (I have). With the GS3 I really think that I will not be getting the upgrade fever anytime soon - what would one upgrade to? Well, never say never.

Congrats on your new purchase. Let me know how you like it!

Right you are :)

I've been trying to route the traffic through www.espresso-passione.com lately. Out of curiosity, where do you still see the www.e61hx.com links?
