I'm quite new to this forum and basically the whole coffee hobby as well. But I'm really getting hooked by the whole thing and I really just couldn't concentrate on anything else for the past 2-3 months. Just to let you guys know that I've owned a Gaggia Cubika (but sold it after a month) and later bought a super-auto bean to cup Schaerer Siena 2 (a used one of course). However, I made a mistake buying a super-auto as it's not fun at all. So now I'm looking to get myself a semi-auto and start to build skills and enjoy the fun in coffee making. I've got a few options here (the above), all 3-4 years used machines. Intended for home use, about 10-12 cups per day, maybe more during weekends as having friends/cousins coming all the time. So I'd be grateful if you guys can help me out choosing the right one. Priorities would be on quality of shots, reliability and ease of use. Thanks!!
