If you are looking for a machine with original parts and in excellent condition, you better be prepared to pay much more than 375--more like 500+

The machine being sold right now is in excellent condition btw

Thanks for the feedback B+M - can you elaborate on your opinion of the machine currently for sale - the seller has 2 for sale, which one are you opining on?  I'd hoped someone more knowledgeable might take a look at the description of the machines, but was loathe to ask.

I don't know much myself, but have been studying the Caravel for a few weeks doing lots of reading. Honestly, if I had the cash I would have bought the caravel being sold here. Although the portafilter is not original (I would have preferred to have it) it is really well made, as are the handles (lots of caravels come with bits and pieces broken, so this is very common). But like with all things that are no longer being made, the item is worth what you are willing to pay.

I didn't know there were 2 for sale!
