Espresso Machine Retailer? Which one in Canada/GTA?

I have my eyes, heart and mind set on a Gaggia Classic Pro. It almost never goes on sale, unless openbox/used otherwise it's $599.

iDrinkcoffee and Espresso Planet sell it but Espresso Planet offers Aeroplan miles, which would come to 300 miles with the purchase.

Where is the best retailer if not best price, at least best service and perks?

Espresso Planet: 300 air miles is worth maybe $6 @ 0.02 cpm plus they have 5% cash rewards ($30)

iDrinkCofee: $599 will give you 18,000 points with them which is worth $18.

They are both service centers. They both sell coffee. At the end of the day I would probably go with the store that is closest to you.

We were looking around for a Lelit espresso machine a few months ago. I emailed Consiglio's Kitchenware in Etobicoke and made them an offer which was roughly 15% off their listed price, and they accepted.

They sell Gaggia, so it might be worth a shot. Can't comment on service and perks though, I'd guess the other two shops you mentioned would be better on that front.

I'm a big fan of ECS Coffee in Burlington, part of the reason I bought my Eletta super automatic machine from them is that they do the repairs on site. They've been excellent for quite some time.

Just needed a tube of silicon grease for the Miele I bought last year.
