Just an FYI....
If you are looking for a great home espresso machine, GO TO Sweet
Marias and get the Rancilio Silva, New, and with all the goodies!
Great value for New, at just under $500 - that's where mine is from!
I have a case of upgrade fever, so an HX machine is on its way.
I have posted my Rancilio Silvia on eBay for a "Buy It Now price of
$450 - or Make an Offer" If you're looking to save some, here's mine,
lightly used (as opposed to my Clarity and French Press that get daily
use). Feel free to make an offer - I am compiling offers and will
accept one cause I need to sell the machine...
It's not PID'ed, but everyone says that's also good to do...
