Detailed Commentary

I just bought this machine used at a Restore (Habitat for Humanity) for 15 bucks. No box, missing one stabalizer pad on bottom of machine, no cup, no instructions. always wanted an espresso machine. Cleaned it up, ran it once with no coffee, worked good. I then felt confident enough to run some coffee through it.....Wow!, What a great espresso!  I'm very pleased with how easy it was even without instructions.
There's a couple things I don't know what they are for but that'll be fun to look up on the internet. My daughter is a barista at starbucks and is going to get me some esspresso beans. Good Times....Good Times

Buying Experience

The vender was basically a donation center. But the woman that donated it just happen to walk in as I was getting ready to buy it, she was dropping off more items. I asked her about it and she said she couldn't get it to work as it was her late son's machine..... very sad moment..... I bought it anyway and it works great.
