I have a line on a Super Jolly for a good price.  If that doesn't pan out, I'm considering the Vario.  I'd like to be able to (relatively) easily switch to a coarser grind for French Press and drip.

hmm i wonder what pictures you're looking at.  to an untrained eye, my machine would appear to have plastic tubing after the boiler but in fact the tubing is only attached to the pressure release valve and the 3-way solenoid valve.  These tubes do not come in contact with the beverage that the machine is producing.  The tubes exit into the drip tray to be discarded.

I'm like a little kid looking at a Playboy for the first time. It all looks pretty cool, but I have no idea what any of it does.

The responses we've gotten from various vendors have led me to believe that what I'm seeing isn't totally out of whack. Like I said, I'm happy to be wrong about that.  Though, I'm starting to bond with the Silvano.  Seems like it does everything I need, is fairly forgiving for a noob, and is nicely priced (though, it was nicelier priced a year ago).

Bezzera BZ02 is in your price range, and the internals appear to be almost all copper.

I'm pretty well set on either the Quick Mill Silvano or the La Nuovo Era Cuadra I. I should have mentioned that ease of use is paramount.  My wife is good at steps, but not great at adjusting on the fly.  In that regard, the Silvano might be the ticket.

Any opinions on either of these machines?
