Food Saeco Syntia Stainless Steel Fully Automatic Espresso Machine - $613 @ Costco has the Saeco Syntia Stainless Steel Fully Automatic Espresso Machine for $599 + $13 shipping.


It is backordered until 11/20.

Honestly, I feel more comfortable buying an automatic espresso machine from Costco than just about anywhere else.

Most websites sell this machine for $1100. The best price I could find for a new machine is $849 on sale at Whole Latte Love.
