good morning, Jeff

Saw your ads, and have a question. I am replacing a Kitchenaid espresso machine that I believe was made for them by Gaggia.
Actually, this is the fourth one in four years, and the factory is writing me a check for $480 because they no longer make these.
I use my machine every day for 6 Americanas between my wife and I. I want something bulletproof that I will not be sending off for repair in the first 3 years. And – it has to be a machine that can be serviced / repaired.
as with all espresso machines, you must provide soft water, and
simple maintenance. but gaggias, with the cheapo boilers, can ROT out
example: I have serviced (and added a "brain") to 8 and 9 year old
STOCK rancilio silvias. they needed very little work.
My budget is say roughly $1000, and I have been looking at Expobar Office Lever Plus,I don't like expobar. don't sell 'em. second tier quality, noisy and
loose. Quick mill machines are far better, but might be out of your $
HX (heat exchanger) machines are fading from the scene. as dual
boiler machines become cheaper..
do you have a decent espresso grinder? THAT is the very first thing
simply because it is built so stout. I want a good quality machine that will have consistent results. Please advise.
We can provide the machine best for you. What ever it may be. but
based on your usage statement, the Silvia would fill the bill, with
brewing precision that is unrivalled under $2000.00
