I have a bit of an aversion to ebay so I may have to confine myself to 
new equipment.

Sounds like a good excuse to me.

John,
As far as my favorite it is the Bialetti Kaliffa, an "upper end" moka
pot-that is sometimes laughed off as a gimmick-but makes a great
brew-sustantially different from the traditional Moka.
Clearer taste, more body and oils extracted. "Crema" (or crema like) that is
more than an illusion.
Only the two cup model of the Kaliffa or comparable Brikka are truly
successful. The four cup is a compromise.
A couple of pics of the brew illustrate a story I posted athttp://www.ineedcoffee.com/02/10/frustration/Best, Myron

What size are those cups? 2 oz., 4 oz., ...?

A cup is a single espresso shot...so a two cups (or  a double) is
2 X 25 mlP ml= 1.7 oz TOTAL for TWO CUPS
that makes each up 0.8 oz ....Yep! NOT  8 oz but 0.8 oz./ cup.
All my mugs have retired.
I will, once again, use the measuring cup that comes with the moka pots to
check it out..'cause it doesn't jive, huh?
best, myron

Using a measuring cup...
volume of my DOUBLE SHOT is 70 ml=2.3 oz. Since there is a layer of crema,
actual volume is somewhat less.
3 oz of water is used for brewing.
I don't know why I always get thrown for a loop trying to figure out how big
a shot is. Every time i do this i feel my IQ must be the size of a
ristretto;-)
best, myron
