Facelift for the Profitec Pro 800

I'm about to pull the trigger and purchase a Pro 800 locally for 3,000$ and turns out it is the V1 and not the facelift.

Breville Smart Grinder okay for espresso

There is no machine with more value and capability out of the box under $2000.00 than the Breville Dual Boiler. While this is one guy's opinion, I challenge you to look at the facts.
