A tidy unit. It comes with a precise fit tamper, LM and blind baskets.

Pick up on Sydney's northern beaches is preferred at this stage (with appropriate physical distancing and santisation
How well does the machine run and would this be suitable for a coffee noob? I'm based in Northern Beaches and looking around for my first machine.

It's in good condition. My in-laws have been using it for few years for 2 coffees a day.
Considering physical distancing, I could set up a demo outside on the deck if you like.
Thought an independent view might help, I just repaired the same model and used it at work for about 2-3 weeks, before I on sold it.
Handled about 10 coffees a day and 3-4 staff learned how to use it pretty quickly. If you drink milk based coffee you can expect to wait 1-2 minutes (after you have run your coffee) for the boiler to increase to steam temp once you hit the steam switch, pre-heating cups is worthwhile, then you are ready to froth. Heaps of steam power, on the unit I had one hole of the steam tip was blocked to slow it down a bit. Really well built machine, made in Italy, with the E61 group, most parts readily available if it needs a repair down the line.
