Posted Fri Jul 8, 2005, 3:37pm Subject: cheap but realy good
My parents were looking for a machine for the caravan (cheap cheap ) so I was looking around in bigW and found "kitchen neccesitys" espresso machine 15 bar & so on, looked dodge but it was $35 so had to buy
the freaky thing was that this machine has more steam than any home machine I have ever tryed (Gaggia Krups delonghi sun brev) I want one for my place
dosn't look as good as the other machines, but who's going for looks?

So how good are your Gaggia shots, bugs? Do they border on those from a HX machine, ie just a bit thinner and a touch sour in comparison for single espressos from single baskets and double espressos from double baskets?
If the $35 machine is that good, then as davea said, "wow".
