    Glad I got mine for $120 ;P Used correctly, it makes better espresso than my silvia.

    Hey Luca,
    where did you find one for $120?
    The Sumatrans are from Andy. After 48hrs they are a warm honey bittersweet chocolate brew, more flavour notes later....

    The auction site whose name shall not be spoken, of course! I suspect that the ad being in german helped keep it under the radar ;P Mein Deutsch ist fu:rchtbar, aber gut genug!

    ::) Just.... my highest bid was only only 205... sooo close....

    Just in case you dont know, Its a Mini Gaggia/MiniMoka M-400 with the switch panel changed. SiBar is an electronic manufacturer. I dont even think the owner knew about it... Luck bid I guess

    Ok Ok we can shut this thread down, I GOT ONE !

    I know you were all probably laughing at the description on the auction site.

    I emailed the vendor and he seemed genuine. The money has been paid, now I only have to wait 8 weeks for delivery :-[ :-[
