Summary: I a a snowbird from Montréal and living in Florida now in the winter. This is my first year down south. I have an expresso machine in Canada but I wanted a similar one in Florida.Saeco was my first choice then and I still think it is. Ebay was my first try in finding one. To my surprise I found one similar to mine in Canada at about half the price. The unit not new but refurbished was like new, performed as expected and delivered a very good coffee.
Summary: Actually I have this machine. I wrote this below review for older model. I got this machine from ebay because for lower price was available there. So I have used it already for one month. The espresso is coming out a fabulous, I think better, then Starbucks, even I have used Starbucks beans. I have tried three types of beans (Lavazza, Starbucks, Costco Hawaiian (yellow package) brand), so the best taste and creamy was from Costco Hawaiian brand.
