Bought my first La Pavoni Pro back in 2008 and have never looked back. Now I'm in the market for a second one. It doesn't have to be perfect or even pull a shot - I've rebuilt virtually every aspect of my current machine and I love the process, so a project machine would be just fine with me as long as it's reflected in the price. But it should have nice clean chrome on the base and boiler at a minimum. Located in Seattle but willing to pay shipping.
