have owned saeco fully auto and rancilio silvia. didn't like saeco loved silvia. looking to purchase new machine (silvia destroyed in house fire).. i'm not oppose to fully auto if they produce quality of semi-s (didn't like quality of saeco which lacked something...but it was an older early auto, over 10y old...thinking they have probably improved).
i see you have some good deals on auto refurbs, such as this Z6. how does this fully auto compare? have a budget of roughly 2K (some flex to grow if reason to do so) wouldn't be sorry to return to silvia for much less but wondering if these higher dollar options might be a worthy upgrade
