    Advice for an "OK" machine

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all,

    I have a Eureka grinder and looking to upgrade to a machine. But not wanting to spend too much $$. Would a Breville Duo-Temp be ok at around $300? Or should I spend that $300 on a second hand machine? Thanks

    No. Get a used 6910. Check it steams properly and makes a good brew.

    Or stretch to a bes920 or bes900.

    Both are well reviewed cheaper machines

    Yeah the Duo Temp is probably a bit basic. For new appliance machines Iíd be looking at the BES840 as a minimum standard from Breville. Sunbeam options are the new Mini Barista or an EM6910. You can occasionally get the 6910 on sale for about $400 or $550ish in a package with a grinder. If thatís more than you can afford and $300 is the limit then yes you will need to look at something second hand. Options would include the above mentioned 6910 or a Breville Dual Boiler. Otherwise Gaggia Classic or maybe a Silvia V3 if youíre lucky.
