Just as the subject says, I am interested in getting the Rancilio Epoca. Please, anyone who has any information, tips, criticisms on this machine let me know.

Ive tried the usual search on google, Coffeegeek, etc but there isnt a lot of information out there. At least not as much as the Silvias, Teas, Gaggias, Giottos etc.

Price-wise it is only slightly less expensive than the Isomacs, Diadema/LaVal and other machines with the E61 grouphead. Perhaps this has got something to do with it?

For anyone who is interested, its currently $1995 here in Sydney.
