Topic: Reselecting my first espresso machine (was (3 msgs / 46 lines)
1) From: Paul Jolly
Sorry if I'm repeating a comment which was just made...but here goes anyway. 
   
  Were I starting from scratch, knowing what I now know and wanting to spend less than a grand, my first stop would be Mazzer.  There are plenty of used ones out there, and the $300-$350 you'll spend will make the biggest difference in your shots.  When I moved up from a Maestro to a Super Jolly, I was stunned by the improvement in straight shots.
   
  After that, you've still got options...though not so many in the HX department.  I'd still be looking used and be ready to take a couple of months to find the right machine.
   
  Can't emphasize enough the importance of a good grinder.
   
  Cheers,
  Paul

the semi isnt a lever machine, but an amazing one nontheless, and they  
can be viewed up close at william sonoma :)

huh?
'oh, youre considering this nice gmc yukon?  well, then, you really  
should look into this cool bmw z3. its got a motor too.'
:p
they are both great machines, but im a bit hesitant on the foaming  
capabilities of the semi, its more of a single and ristretto specialist.
