    Your budget may be a little low for a good machine

    Having said that you could look into the Breville range

    What style of coffee do you drink most ?? as there may be other options

    Hi tysson and welcome.

    You wont get too many supporters of super-auto machines on this site. I suppose it depends how old the machine is and how much you like it as to whether you fork over your hard earned to get it fixed. But, from all accounts, they are notorious for constantly breaking down and requiring never ending repairs.

    So... if it was my machine, Id bin it and then research as much as I can on this and other sites before buying something that will suit your requirements and budget. Unfortunately, as KK said above, your $300-400 will not get you much in the way of quality coffee equipment. And when it comes to flea-bay, caveat emptor.

    If youre happy with the quality of the coffee youre getting from your current machine then by all means get something similar. If youre after a step up, buy a grinder to go with it and get some fresh beans.

    If you want to go further... the sky is the limit.
