I have a CMA sae-n1 machine . I am looking for a water pressure regulator. It needs 22psi. Where is the best place to get one and is there a specific brand I should look for.

Can't help you as to where to buy, as I don't live in the USA, but in terms of what to buy - based on personal experience - get a good commercial quality brass regulator from a reputable company like Watts.  I imagine they will be readily available from plumbing and DIY stores, and if not sure to be available on the internet.

A quick browse came up with this, among many others.

http://www.watts.com/pages/_products_details.asp?pid=3430

You might need to investigate the product ranges a bit more to find exactly the best one for the job, and I like the versions with a port for a pressure gauge to confirm the setting is correct.

Some folk get the plastic ones.  I'm sure they're OK, but I'm old fashioned when it comes to plumbing and always go for brass/bronze/copper fittings and pipes.

Depending on state laws, your home might be required to have one installed. I know we are required to have one where the water main enters the home. It is kind of silly for us as we are very high up on a hill and we suffer from LOW water pressure but by building code, we are required to have the regulator there anyway!

I echo the statement to get a quality one, you will not do yourself any favors by cheeping out on one. Watts make a good one and for us at least, you can buy them at a home center.

Well, ordered one from Chris'coffee 3/8 fittings. Will put on the output of my RO unit. I was informed that my pump has shipped. So maybe I will be able to get some practice pulling shots before the week is up:)
