I'm talking to someone about this machine and he's asking $995 on craigslist. I'm looking to start a cafe in a couple years and I'm trying to invest in things over time, so it'll be in storage a while. But I simply don't know enough yet about machines to know whether or not this is a good way to go. The guy said the only issue he had with it when it was last used (2 years ago) was the left group would clog and he suspected that dismantling and soaking it in limeaway would help. Just looking for some advice here!

I think that you should look for a machine when you're much closer to opening time. Two years or so is way too far ahead because: (1) you have a better chance by then to find a more modern machine at a good price, and (2) more importantly -- a used machine, especially one you don't know exactly it's internals' status and what pre-storage preparation was made to it, is likely to be in a much worse shape two years from now than presently.

Either way, good luck in your upcoming venture!
