Astoria, for the home
I picked up this new used machine in good working condition. It is really quite a good HX machine, but I could do without a vibe pump. A rotary pump is $200, and that is without a motor to go with it. It will be a while before I can make that kind of upgrade, but it looks like a grinder with a little more precision will be a priority for great shots.
The steam is great on this machine. It has adequate pressure to texture 12-16 oz. of milk in one shot, and pull your shot at the same time. I’m pretty happy with it.
