Please go check your cupboards and also check with your partner if you don't have a Breville Cafe Venezia or Barista Express lying around.

Good luck finding a barista express.
These units don't die and makes a good cuppa - hence nobody selling.

Do yourself a favour and buy one new. use the @home discount coupons and easy payment terms when you use the store card.

Heck - These units did get expensive over time! double the price vs in 2015

I see the Cafe Venezia and the Touch is currently on a bit of discount. But not the express.

Also been looking for this machine. I see there are a couple second-hand ones on Gumtree/OLX around the R5k-R6k mark - perhaps check as you might find one in your area. I've been struggling to find a second hand model in Cape Town. I told myself that if I don't find one by the end of next month, I'll just bite the bullet and buy it new for R10k.

Yeah they all in Joburg. Also saw them. I don't want to take that risk. Have been looking in Durban, but nothing I feel comfortable with.

I decided I am just going to buy new. If it was the Breville Cafe Venezia which doesn't cost much, I don't mind the risk. But decided I am just going to go for the express now.

They usually go for 8K on sale during the year. But I don't want to wait. Have already spent too much money buying coffee this week that tasted crap. And those are on commercial machines. The peanuts have no idea how to use the stuff.

The only time it goes on special at @ home is on Black Friday.

I saw it on special over April last year or before.

They currently have the Breville Touch and the Cafe Venezia on 15% sale. BUT

The Cafe venezia has also gone up in price just after lockdown. Previously it was R4000 normal price.
