Over the holidays, I did some obsessive shopping for an espresso machine. Back in the day, I could find used machines on eBay. No more. Where have all the bargains gone? Craigslist, Bonanza, eCrater–couldn’t find anything. But it turns out there is a specialty site for nearly every niche market. In this case I trolled the forums on CoffeeGeek.com and found a good one. Niche sites are the place to buy and sell specialty items, not general marketplaces, in my opinion.
