    Advice needed on buying second hand machine

    Hi all,

    Recently I have got the permission to buy a coffee machine with budget of less than 1K.

    Though with 0 knowledge about machine whatsoever what should I be watching out for when looking for one?

    Should I be engaging a professional advice?

    For example: I saw one Futurmat Rimini 1G Elec on Gumtree for sale and had absolutely no idea what to look out for. Also it seems to be one of the older model and not the most recent one with some sleak buttons.

    Thank you in advance for any tips/advice.

    Happy New Year to all.

    OK, ended up getting a second hand Isomac Millenium and an Anfim KS grinder. Seems to be a good deal as the machine was fairly new and in good condition. It was also recently serviced. Both was around 3-4 yo (i think). Can't really tell their age apart from asking the owner.

    Owner got a new set so that also means nothing was wrong with this one (i presumed). Will do some testing (learning) soon to find out.

    Cheers T

    That was quick!! If you picked those two up for around $1000 total you've done well, they are both well regarded machines. Although you can never be 100% sure of the condition of the coffee machine on the inside and how well it was looked after, the fact that it's not that old and has had a recent service is a good sign. Have fun with your new toys, there's lots of good info on Coffee Snobs and YouTube to help you on your way.
