I do not know whether we are allowed to point out to an auction site (I assume it should be OK, but it is up to @DavecUK to say) but there is a beautiful combo on this site, La Scala Carmen 1 gr with La Scala grinder (Macap in disguise) for GBP 400 buy it now.
I was so tempted but having a V I had no negotiation ground with my wife so I have just dropped it.
It would make an excellent start for someone who would spend similar amount on a Gaggia Classic (if not more).
The machine sports 4.8 l boiler, has electronic pre-infusion, whatever it means, rotary pump and all the features a professional coffee machine would have.
The guy selling it has listed his number and he offered me to make a demo before picking it up.
It will be a pity to go to someone who would not appreciate it.
