For anyone who doesn't know this machine, I believe it is equivalent to the Faema Termazona. It's a 1970s full-on two group Faema commercial lever machine. In Seattle last year I had a chance to try one in action at The Good Coffee Company. Looking at one of these up close, they're low maintenance, built to last forever, and there's a lot of heft in those groups.
If you've got a small cafe, a large kitchen, or a garage or basement with the space for this, you won't top it, and Juanjo's selling it for $300 more than you see for some Creminas these days. There's just no comparison. If I didn't already have a Conti Prestina in the works I'd be very tempted. :-)
