Argh - I've found something that I really want, can just barely afford but 
don't need in the slightest! I've found a 2 years old Rancilio Epoca for 550 
euro, minus the filter baskets. Aghh!!

4) From: Ming Wang
715 or so I think! It's way too cheap damnnit! Probably no warranty but a 
machine that size doesn't break easily. Probably a plumb in model, without a 
water tank. Argh. I want one, but I can't justify it, and would literally 
have nowhere to put it! I've seen an Epoca 2 group in person before, they're 
not small!

Come on... it's just what the well stocked kitchen needs. Do you have
adequate counter space?

No baskets or no portafilters? Filter baskets are not too expensive. 
Portafilters are more so.

http://www.rancilio.it/english/indexengepoca.htmAnd there's no baskets rather than for the portafilter I think. Definitely 
not enough counter space, nor do I know whether its plumbed or not. Too much 
hassle for little old me I think.

No, you should buy it! ( Instigate #1) What are you using now, maybe
we could make up some kinda deal...I'll probably be upgrading in 2 - 3
months, so you'd have time to get her up to speed...( and she's a
beauty...(instigate #2) ) So you can email me, if you'd like to go
that route....( make a choice available). Yeah, you could spend more
money on a machine with only 1 boiler...but cool factor alone...your
in ! ( making it too easy...(picture this...) Ming, can you see
yourself, with a room full of your friends, and you casually lead them
to your immaculate bar, and casually mention how you fully restored
this machine to it's present glory? Time too pull a blank shot, to
warm it up properly...mmm smell the freshly ground home roasted
coffee...
So, Ming will that be cash or charge?
Maybe I'll get my tax returns back a little faster, if I'm properly
motivated, myself ;-)

Quit it! It's a 2 group twin HX nevermind twin boiler for crying out loud :(

I know, the picture of it makes me want to get it, too! How many cups
on that rooftop? 24? Think about hanging out at the trade shows, 5
years from now, talking to the Rancilio Sales reps, pointing out minor
flaws in the design of thier newest creation, wishing they would stick
to refining a basic commercial machine, like those good ole Epoch's...
More chrome than an OCC chopper, yada yada ya!
