Mike, I'd appreciate it if you would take a gander at this page http://www.espressotec.com/hegaggia.aspand let me know if the machine 
at $239 is what you are talking about. Despite the current strength of 
our dollar, things are still more expensive in Canada.
I had been thinking about the Solis Crema SL 70, at a tad under $400 
here. I have the Maestro grinder.

Thanks Mike. We go into the states once a year and I often buy bigger 
ticketed items there. I have a feeling one of them will be on my wish 
list for my next trip down south. The Gaggias you recommended are over 
300 here--not enough left to upgrade my grinder :).
The $275 CAD refurbished ones are out of stock, but I may be able to 
locate one elsewhere.

Thanks Steve--they don't ship to Canada. I know I'll find one, now that 
I know what I am looking for.

I bought my roaster from our hosts last time I was in the states. That 
is most likely how I would buy the espresso machine, as well. By the 
time you add in shipping to Canada, the import duty, and the taxes added 
in at customs things can get very expensive, very fast.
I'm going to NYC to see my son in October. I'll be there long enough to 
bring one back duty and tax free.
