I found in a Warehouse Sale a Bunn Espress ES-2a. It is offered for 400$
I don't know if it is working but i guess. Is that a reasonable price? And how is it compared to a LaCimbali?

I think it's the same as a Gaggia/Italcrem Nera/Space 2 group. Don't know anything about it beyond that, really. Made in Spain for Gaggia, then rebadged Bunn. Probably a decent, but not outstanding 2-group commercial machine.

I talked to the guy in the shop and he told me it has never been used. It was just in a set of a TV show. For use at home it should be OK I guess.

It'll be plumb-in and 220v. If you've got the space and and an appropriate outlet (or can have one installed), it'll make all the espresso you and your friends and family could possible drink. I think there are manuals available online so you can get some idea of what you're looking at.

Thanks, I already downloaded a manual. It would be more like an Option for a new kitchen. I'm still not sure if I should use it at home or try to convince my boss to replace the simple Jura with it.
