Which espresso machine should I buy for a gift?
I recently need to buy an espresso machine put in my home, I'm a coffee lover and my budget is around $2000.
I check out the ECM and I want to buy there (I am living in Vancouver).
Thanks a lot

Here are a few suggestions, depending on how much you are looking to spend.
Best Espresso Machine Under $1000 - beverage for me
Best Espresso Machine Under $500 - beverage for me
Keep in mind, you are probably going to want to purchase a nice burr grinder to go along with your espresso machine, so you should factor that into your costs as well!

I just bought two Jura Coffee Machines.
1) Jura c60 from Bed and Bath ($999 with 20% discount for signing up to be on their mailing list)
2) Jura a9 from Sur La Table ($1799 with 20% discount for being in the culinary field).
Jura c60 for home and Jura a9 for work.
Both have great features. Jura a9 makes really hot coffee.
*A daily dose of caffeinated instant gratification, right when I need it most. I call it a bargain for the price I paid and the quality of the Machines I got.

Having a set budget is a smart idea when you are looking into buying an espresso machine. There are many different types of machines that do a wide variety of things. If you are new to creating espresso drinks I would recommend buying a super automatic espresso machine. Or if you are wanting to get a more hands-on experience you can opt for a semi-automatic espresso machine. This type of machine will allow you to play with more options and really get to know how the espresso brewing process works.

i would check out the new machines by decent espresso....and to an extent, a grinder - do not believe you need the most expensive to make an excellent shot. take time to really consider your needs and wants for the grinder. then again, it also depends on your palette. have fun researching your options

I am personally eyeing that Breville Infuser. It certainly isn't cheap, but, I guess it is reasonable considering some of the other higher end options.
Think it's time for me to upgrade my De Longhi Bar 23 machine which has been a champ.
