Visually, this is my dream machine. Perhaps if this machine had the spring loaded lever it would be perfect. An HX lever machine.

Anyway, that's only visually. For the price, I still want the functionality of a Livia/E61 setup in the same price range.

Oh well, can't have it all.

Absolutely breathtaking machine. I have the Leva, and am wondering if the PF is the same size as this one? I think my pf is 53mm, though.

Have you tried out a Mini Verticale?  I found one for $1495, so I bought it, and since I earn Euros and they're strong right now, it was even cheaper for me. I wasn't  impressed with the instructions regarding assembly and operation (poorly translated, scant, etc.), although it wasn't really hard to figure out. So far I've made some good coffee with it (and love the appearance); rivals anything I've had on trips to Italy. I still have lots of barista honing to do though, so I was wanting a more expert opinion...
Thanks
