Re: Home Espresso Machines
What sort of budget do you have? That will drive the answer.
I have a Rancillio Silvia, which is one of the most decent low end machines around. I also have a Rancillio Rocky grinder, but if you are not going to grind your own you may get by without one. All up I spent about $1000 on the pair.
If you have 2-3K to spend there are a lot more option available to you.
