For anyone that's wondering about reviews, here's the same machine on Amazon:

seems like quite a few people had warranty and durability issues. I want an espresso maker, but not a refurb that has so many apparent problems.

Get a rancillio Sylvia. New or used. Had mine for 8 years. It's still running strong. If it ever breaks, it's very serviceable. Probably the some of the best money I've ever spent.

Bought a refurb of one of these. Leaked from the water pump on the first try. I didnt want to return it, so I opened it up and found the water pump motor gasket was not set correctly. Works perfectly now, but would never recommend one of these refurbs.

you realize this thread is for a 70 dollar espresso machine, right? I'm guessing that audience isn't typically going to drop 600 on an espresso machine.

Edit: not to discredit the merits of a better machine.

You're right. There's a vast difference in the price from the OP and what I proposed. Also, to truly get the benefit of the Rancilio silvia, you're probably going to want a grinder too. I expect my Silvia to keep running for the next 10 years or more. That's good value there.

We had a saeco machine for many years before the sivia, and it did a fine job. When we stepped up to the Rancillio, the difference was night and day.

I've never used this Cuisinart. It may be a fine machine, but I wonder how serviceable it is. Better machines can often be found on craigslist. Normally I don't buy used, but given how easy it is to service and repair these machines, it's a pretty safe bet. Of course not everyone wants to deal with Craigslist.

For a new low-end machine, I would say DeLonghi or Saeco. I buy from Seattle Coffee Gear, but you can find these machines elsewhere. As a frame of reference, if SCG sells it, it's probably a good machine, regardless of where you buy it. SCG also has a lot of youtube videos that can help the OP learn.

Agree that higher end machines tend to be more serviceable. Especially European made. Just would like to be able to afford one, myself. Not bragging, but if something is repairable, I can repair it. Just an innate ability that I've had since I was a kid, and now pushing sixty. As for the Cuisinart line, I've seen far too many refurbished appliances in "bargain" stores, for my comfort.

I wouldn't suggesting getting any refurbished espresso machine. I got this a few months ago and it died on me after 3 months

I wouldn't discredit the merits of a cheaper machine either. My $25 Betty Crocker steam driven unit puts out a nice product as well as has had no problems in years.

The espresso repair shop on Phinney Ridge recommended I snag a Saeco Starbucks Barista off CL for under $150 (this was 3 years ago). I found one and it's been amazing. So just passing on the recommendation from a shop that knows machines... (it was recommended for simplicity and bomb proof design)
