I was looking for something that wasn't only capsules as I sometimes I prefer to use beans that I can choose etc.. Does anyone have any other recommendations? What does everyone else use? I do like the nespresso, but the option to only use their pods is holding me back a little?
My SO is a coffee addict, so I bought him a Gaggia espresso machine (I can't remember which one... Gaggia Pure I think?). I have researched it a ton before deciding to purchase it, and the Gaggia brand seems to come up top a lot of the times (as well as Senseo).
Nobody?! :( I don't understand why there are espresso machines for $50 and ones for $500, or what the difference in taste is with automatic/manual. Any preferences or education is super greatly appreciated!!!!!! :)
I hope I can help. First I must say that the espressomaschine is one of our best investments. We use it everyday. We own a la speziale dubbel boiler and are very pleased with our choice. If we would choose a singel boiler, rancilio silvia is the one that got best rewievs. It's also in your price range. Dont forget the mill!
