Brewtus III for $900 on Austin Craigslist. Who knows, maybe he'd even be willing to take an offer or do that price with shipping? I bet if you do some research, it will turn out that you need to spend a whole lot more to get a machine that can perform noticeably better. A lot of good options out there, and patience will pay off!

Thanks, everyone, for the offers to help with shipping, as well as for the product pointers. For what it's worth, I'm currently negotiating over a Brewtus IV ($1200-$1400 range) and a Vibiemme DD 3 ($1600-$1800). I'd be happy with either machine - though you read what I wrote about the Domobar... - but I'm definitely open to offers from newcomers or anything else people happen to run across.

I happened upon one at idrinkcoffee.com in their open box specials with PID. They'll send you actual photos and shipping says it's free from Canada; or is that at least in Canada. It's open box as it apparently sustained some minor damage, but considering it's essentially new you may be interested. At least it may be worth a look. From their description, they went with the larger diameter steam wand. It is a touch more than $1600, but if you factor in free shipping (it's 70 lbs(?)) it may still be good value. Here's the link:
