Congrats on maintaining such a terrific site for us Canadians out there.
I'm trying to get a starter set-up here.
I found an open box and refurbished Saeco Magic Espresso/Cappuccino sold with a 6 month manufacturer's warranty for slightly under 200$ CA and then for a grinder I was thinking of the Breville BCG450XL for 99$ CA.
How does it look? Would I be able to get something decent out of this? Could I go any cheaper? Any other recommendations?
