    !!SOURCED!! - Basic used coffee machine Adelaide...

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I am currently using a stove top and I am thinking of getting a basic pump type coffee machine I only need to make coffee for 1-2 people.

    perhaps someone has an unloved machine after an upgrade.

    I want to spend less than $200

    ( I want to win X lotto too)

    Have you looked at the for sale forum - Im sure there are a couple of SA machines in there...

    I dont really understand the question.

    I have looked about but did not see any local machines

    someone in Sydney had something interesting but they said they would not post.

    Hes asking if you drink you coffee black, or with milk, and if you like frothed milk etc.

    I was also trying to be funny (10 points for guessing the obscure cult-reference). But yes, I was asking the questions to find a little more about what you want, even though I dont have one for sale. The Oscar I was thinking of has been sold.

    Anyway, 1-2 cups at a time doesnt call for much steam, but beware that a $200 machine will be relatively slow at steaming, making it harder to steam 2 cups before the milk gets too hot. (Stop me if you know this already!)

    Also, beware of the lifetime in this price range. A cheap stovetop could last years, but a cheap appliance might be half dead before you get it!

    Finally, have you considered aeropress, bellman, syphon, etc.? They can make a good cup too!

    HTH and good luck!
