I got mine cheaper about a year ago, but it's been incredibly robust. At least 2 shots a day.

Have a lot of Amazon points. Would probably buy if they price matched.

I have the infuser version of this (similar with no grinder) and i use it everyday. I think it's a good investment for anyone who drinks lattes everyday.

Only concern is - the seller is legit?

I have owned one of these for about a year. They are consistent work horses. I make 2 double lattes a day with steamed coconut milk. With basic skills it creates a consistent crema with good beans.

I have one as well and it's fantastic. I noticed they recently came out with a touchscreen more automated version however. Perhaps this is why it's on sale?

I heard this is one of the better mass-produced espresso machines. My first real espresso machine was a Gaggia New Baby and a Breville Smart Grinder. Only reason I went with the Gaggia was because of its Italian lineage and small footprint. Once you start making your own lattes and mochas using quality beans, chocolate (I use Torani chocolate syrup), and equipment; the stuff you get from Starbucks and Caribou just tastes "artificial". Even the lattes produced by my Nespresso capsule machine tastes miles better than Starbucks.

Having both the Gaggia espresso machine and Nespresso machine, if you're simply looking to get your own machine because you only want to save money from having to go to the coffee shop and you don't consider yourself too picky, getting a Nespresso machine with a milk frother is a better option. Using locally roasted fresh coffee beans, it was costing me about $0.40 per shot with the Gaggia. With the Nespresso, it's $0.70 a shot ($0.54 a shot if you buy it during a special such as "buy 70 capsules, get 20 free"). It costs marginally more per shot, but the convenience of not having to clean up ANYTHING is so WORTH it. When I had my Gaggia, I only got to use it ~3x a week because I'm so busy in the mornings. Since getting the Nespresso, I'm able to make a latte every morning without messing up my kitchen counter.

I dont think thats why the price is lowered. The Breville Oracle Touch is ~$2300; it's in a completely different price category at ~5x more the price.

I seem to be in the minority but I have this machine and it cannot get high enough pressure for a decent espresso

If you have some extra cash to spend, get the Dual Boiler (BES920XL) and a decent grinder, such as a Baratza Vario (can be a refurb).

I can tell you - that would make a HUGE difference, just don't use the dual wall filter.

I was in your situation - I sold the older Breville machine for 70% of retail price on craigslist in 3 days and now I'm happily enjoying my shots and lattes made by the BDB.

Love my Nespresso, too. So easy. I'm sure this is better, but I'm too cheap to fork over close to $500.

Mine lasted 3 years before it started making crazy noises and stopped pumping anything. Made pretty fantastic espresso while it was alive.

Really? The pressure on this thing is amazing with the right settings. Make the grind finer and pack it tight. I pack several times in small increments for an incredible pressure. Sometimes it's too high if I'm not careful and I end up having to run another shot using the same beans loaded to get anything in the cup.
