This is my advice after many many years of experience and intimate knowledge of many prosumer espresso machines. I often get PMs asking me if a machine is any good, what should they pay are there any problem areas to look out for etc. http://coffeetime.wikidot.com/buying-a-used-prosumer-espresso-machine
So I'm going to buy a Fracino Little Gem, used (working) but 1 year of no use. What should I test and inspect? Water running through group head? Steam wand provides powerful dry steam? Aesthetic damage, and functions as expected? Any way to tell if the machine is past it's best, not worth it? Expecting I need to descale but any other maintenance likely needed? Thanks for your help! PS After purchase what gear is essential/ great to have? 30ml shot Glasses Milk jug knock box cleaning cloth Visiting in a week, look forward to your help!
