Posted Thu Nov 21, 2013, 12:05pm Subject: Need help with info
Hello, let me start by saying I am new to the forum but have been lurking for many months as I started home roasting about six months ago but have been a coffee lover my whole life. I currently use a Starbucks Barista and a Mr. Coffee grinder that I hacked to get an espresso grind. I came across a BUNN ES-500 espresso machine and EG-500 grinder for $200. The problem is I can't find any info on these two items. what I did find is the EG-500 is a rebadged Gaggia Classic and the EG-500 is a rebadged Gaggia MDF Grinder. so my question, is this the case? I seems that if they are Gaggia items that it would be a big improvement on my current setup but the fact that I can't find any info on either item makes me worried. Any info would be appriciated.
