Buying discounted beans 6-8 weeks past the roasting date. Good/bad idea?

Choosing a reliable dual boiler machine in Doha, Qatar

I think there is an Alex Duetto for sale on coffee forums uk. I would rather get a quality machine like that used than one of the three you mentioned if the price was about the same. Of course it would need a bit more counter space
