ran across this online

they want $50, from the description it's 3 years old and comes with a tamp and measuring spoon.


any opinions?

I had one of these machines for about 10 years. It worked great and had a very nice frother! Made great espresso with good crema.

I recently gave mine to a friend and he loves it.

I decided to go the easy route in my dotage and got me a Nespresso:

Makes very nice Espresso with lots of Crema (has a 19mb pump) and the one plus over the Barista is that you don't have to remember to shut it off -- it puts out the right amount of water every time and since it uses capsules clean up is a breeze :D

just got a nespresso for the office - it really does make extremely good espresso for the price/ease of use.
newegg.com has one bundled with the frother for $230 - best price I could find.
