    Which espresso machine should I buy for a gift?

    Hi all,

    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).

    Any suggestions?

    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.
