    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All,
    looking at buying a machine for home wanting some thoughts on the best way to go.
    My wish list is.
    E61 Leva
    Dual Boiler Maybe
    Milk wand on LHS looking at machine
    and any other of the good things
    looking to spend around 2-2.5k had thought something like an Expobar iv or Isomac TEA PID but not set on this, any help would be great.

    Welcome Aldo,

    Dual boiler PID will be out of range unless you are interested in a good preloved machine. Rick (aka site sponsor Coffee Machinist) showed me an immaculate Expobar Minore IV which he has just listed for sale. It would be a very safe buy.

    PID in a HX machine? Gimmick- and it really will not make a significant difference at all. In my opinion, it's not worth a price premium.

    Happy shopping!
