FYI, these seem to be more problematic than most other pump espresso machines, they end up with a fair number of DOA/early failures/etc (see heavy pattern of 1 star reviews on Amazon [amazon.com]). There have been other threads on this. Apparently Cuisinart will make you pay shipping both ways if you try to get warranty service.

I'm in the market for an updated espresso machine, so I've paid attention in the past when this has come up, and every time I do it comes out to not being worth the potential downsides, even when it's been cheaper. If the warranty service was not apparently terrible it would be worth the risk, but as it is it's not to me. Others may feel differently :p Normally I actually like refurbs, when the company is known for actually fixing whatever's causing the failures in the first place, but Cuisinart seems to have a spotty record with these, there's apparently a systematic design flaw given how many of these refurbs they sell and how they still seem to have high failure rates after being refurbed.

in your research, what other espresso machines have you been "eyeing"? I'm also in the market for an espresso machine.

a lot of the problem seems to be user error. You will have to use the correct espresso grind or it will clog the machine

Just to add a data point. I have this machine. It failed earlier this year after 7 years of dependable service. That's not bad for a consumer grade machine.

On the other hand, I'm skeptical of whoever is refurbishing these units for BuyDig. I purchased a refurbished EM-200 from BuyDig earlier this year, and the one I received was broken. That one would turn off in the middle of pulling a shot. Then you'd have to wait for its 5 minute warm up cycle to relapse before you could try again. BuyDig/Beach Camera graciously gave me a full refund, paid return shipping, and allowed me to purchase a 2nd EM-200 at the same price. Sadly, that machine was faulty as well. It pulled great shots but had an internal leak. Water would drip from the front left of the machine while pulling a shot. And if you left it powered on, half the reservoir would end up on the counter during the course of a day. Again, BuyDig refunded my money and paid return shipping. I did not try a 3rd time.

All in all, I have no issues with BuyDig. I'm happy with their service, and our refurbished Nikon D3300 (also from BuyDig) has been nothing but a pleasure. However, I don't trust the group that is refurbishing their Cuisinart machines.

had this machine a few months - does not pull a passable, let alone an impressive shot of espresso. tried all sorts of different things - beans, grind...just wouldn't do well. finer grind would clog the machine, coarser grind wouldn't extract properly. pressurized portafilter may be part of the issue - also not consistent temperature of the shots pulled.

bit the bullet and spent about $450 on a breville barista (on sale + overstock 12% coupon) and couldn't be happier - night and day with the quality of the coffee, and the machine in general.

My mom uses a Cuisinart espresso maker, not sure if it is this one as it's probably close to 8 years old now. She loves it and hasn't had any issues but she buys preground expresso blocks, probably a bit more consistent grind than what seems to clog these units. I got it for her for $16 open box (but new) at JC Penny Outlet.
