What Is A Good Espresso Or Coffee Machine To Buy?
Q: I like Cafe Bustelo and other Latin coffees, and I also tend to like heartier European coffees. I need something that can make good coffee, even if I only want one cup at a time (I live alone), And I'd prefer to spend less than a couple hundred dollars.
A: You can absolutely get a quality Espresso or coffee machine for under $200. It will be a little harder to find a good Espresso machine for that price, but you can pick one up on eBay at about 1/2 of the going retail price. Here are a few machines I would recommend in your price range: 'Braun Tassimo' Brews single cups of Espresso, coffee, and tea. Very well reviewed and an amazing value in an Espresso/coffee machine. Can be purchased (new and used) on eBay for around $100. 'Gaggia Evolution' Great Espresso machine for the money and brews fantastic Espresso. Gaggia has a well-deserved reputation as a great entry level machine. Can be purchased new for $300 or on eBay for around $180. Hope that helps...check out the site below to find great deals on the above machines and many other Espresso machines! I heartily agree w/ jeffp about the 'Tassimo' machine. I've had mine since April & I LOVE IT. You can get several varieties of coffee & tea disks for it both online (at the Tassimo website) or in several stores like Bed Bath & Beyond. My favorite things to make are single Espresso shots, Vanilla Coffee, Lattes, & Green Tea. They have Chai Tea disks now, but I have yet to try them. I plan to, soon!
