    "Hypothetical" situation help....

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Question

    If you had $2500 to your name...that is all and you desperately wanted a nice coffee machine/grinder would you pay $2500 for a near new Expobar Minore III & Mazzer Mini????

    I know this is probably the wrong place to ask this (i expect a few "yes" answers) but I would just like to know if there are any other combos that I should look at for that price.

    Cheers

    P.S. Its not really a hypothetical situation, my girlfriend just thinks it is ;D

    None that are much if at all better ;)

    In truth there is some other higher end Prosumer HXs (Giotto, Bezzera etc) to consider as well but I like the dual boiler and PID idea for my $$

    You could probably pick up a Diadema Leva or Semi-Auto plus a K3T for close to $2500 brand new at the moment.

    Haha no shes OK. Her main concern was that Id OD on caffeine. I think I already was before the machine so no difference there.

    On any given day, most of us here consider there to be far too much blood in our caffeine system mate ;)

    Congrats!
