Well, an Arin on a well known auction website : I look without caring, as I already got one...
And then, I realise that on the side, it's not written "Arin" but "Super Moka". What a discovery !
First time I heard of it ! And I'm not the only one...
So this evening I put it in the "to follow" list, as she's been at 1€ for several days.
Next day, I look out of curiosity, and probably tired of not having any auction, the seller offers immediate purchase.
My hand reactivity being faster than my brain, I clicked on the "Buy" button...










Here is the machine, as discovered on the website.





And when it arrived, I had to unpack it !















The small spillage tray sometimes missing is there. And the owner's tour can now begin.





Not that bad from the outside !


Her number and caracteristics...



As she proudly displays the quality of material used.








Next to her almost twin sister.


















But it's a Super Moka we're talking about.




The opening of the machine will keep some surprises from me.








That is not the worst






It has rusted on both sides, glups !

Her date.





All innocent like, that little metallic filter is really great.



She's working, but I still gotta change the seals. Unfortunately, I broke a little plastic piece of the indicator during disassembly. Well, I can find that in stores. I finaly arrived at the end of cleaning, that was one of the dirtiest machines I've had ! But it finally shines.
