Breville The Barista Express

Did anyone get one of these refurbs the last time they came around?

We bought one on Woot for the daughter a few years back. Nice unit but the pressure gauge crapped out after a 1-1/2 years of (fairly light) use and its almost impossible to replace. Well documented weakness. I like that its semi-automated, but my daughter prefers the fully manual/separate grinder process. Those darn millennials…

I bought mine two years ago, use it twice daily, and it is still going strong. I haven’t had any issues yet (knock on wood).
