So, I was in the market for an espresso machine. Like any regular ol joe, i go online and do some research, read some reviews and decide on a machine that i feel would serve my needs and be affordable.
Well, the machine i liked cost close to $400, so i decided to check out ebay for a used one, and sure enough i find one for a great deal, $127+shipping.
Ok, thats when it gets frustrating, 4 days after the sale, the "bastard" decides to ship it out... ok, two weeks later, today it arrives & i'm excited, we can have some coffee.... or so i think..
here is the link to the ebay page
Breville Professional Home Barista 800ESXL 11 Cups Espresso Machine 021614037343 | eBay
looks pretty good and it says gently used, professionally cleaned.. which sounds like what i want to hear...
when i open the package, the thing is a f*KN mess.. it looked liked it was pulled outta a dumpster.. disgusting how filthy it was.. but thats not a BFD.... it could be washed.. whats really a BFD is that its broken to pieces, the water tank is cracked with a hole, the back panel is hanging off the unit... it was just a mess...
contact the seller, and he states that he had it professionally cleaned and it was in pristine condition...
just my luck.. FML... i always end up getting fkd somehow when i buy something.. its always broken or something isnt right... my wife already laughs at me when i buy something cuz she knows that something is wrong with it..
anyways, i'm just ranting & raving & drinking some wine, lol...
here's how the machine looks..
