Detailed Commentary

After using a Mr. Coffee steam driven piece of junk for 5 years I finally decided to go for a pump machine. Thanks to this site and looking at what was available on ebay I settled on this rig for $41. It is pretty finicky about the grind, but I gather many machines are. I am not prepared to shell out $150 for a grinder. I have finally found a BUNN grinder at the grocery store that grinds beans just right at the 'Turkish' setting. When it is just right it only takes 30 seconds +/- to pull a beautiful golden brown crema capped shot. It pumps out steam like a champ and makes a nice micro-bubble froth. I can't help but covet other high end rigs but for now I couldn't be happier.

Buying Experience

Bought off of Ebay for a song.
