It's a slight gamble, but you could look for a used Gaggia Classic on eBay or similar. I once bought one for under 100$ that was listed as "defective" but just needed a good descale.

To piggyback on this, If you are a moderately handy person, searching "espresso machine" on eBay, selecting "for parts or not working" will get you the best deals I bet you can find.

My sister actually threw away her Starbucks barista espresso machine that only needed a descale, sadly she didn't even let me know.

And if it's a reputable company and machine, you could find parts for it easily, if it needed more than a descale.

In fact, now this search will be in my daily routine, thanks mg512 for the reminder! Now I'm surely going broke! haha
Roaster: Artisan 6M in red, Nesco CR-04-13, Poppery II

Grinder: 1Zpresso JX-Pro, Grindmaster 835s

Brew Methods: Aeropress, Chemex, V60, French press, ramekins ;)
I tried Sage Barista Express Espresso Machine from this website. Once you set the fineness of the grind and the amount required, get the compaction pressure right you get as good as any well known outlet can supply. Some reviews comment on the noise of the water pump but this assured me all is working and I’m not worried by that. The Steam to hot water dispenser selection knob is plastic and it’s job is quite demanding.
Koffee Kosmo
A coffee style that has been around for centuries is
Greek / Turkish

All you need is an ibrik and a heat source and the super fine ground coffee

Once you learn how to brew this style of coffee - you are then drinking the original first coffee style

And the ibrik is cheap, easy to wash, take it camping ect

I have posted the brew method in another thread
