I have one of these and at $250 plus Australian they are in fact not a bad
little unit.. Had it for 18 months now and run about 6 to 8 double shots
per day (Wife and I like our coffee).
I did see a Espresso Machine OE001 one on e-bay as well as at a school
market. While the Pump and Steem (Dule switch) appeard to work the rest of
it looked cheep and filter holes looked rather large and it had a funny seal
that I am sure would cause problems whel loading onto the unit.
Would suggest that if you got a good shot from this OE001 model it would
take some major workup and then some... The coffee grind would be a pain to
If it was a choice of the OE001 or Instant, I would go the Instant.
