    Fathers Day Gift

    Hey guys,
    I am new here and would just like to ask a question concerning a gift for my father on fathers day. Not only is it fathers day, it is also his birthday and he is a coffee feind. However, his espresso machine is extremely under par so I have decided to go ahead and get him a really nice model. My price range tops out at around 450$ I would say. So considering everything, what model would be best. I am currently considering the Rancilio Silvia and also the Capresso Ultima but I know very little when it comes to espresso machines.

    Thanks guys-
    John

    Stay with the rancilio. The higher end Capresso units aren't bad but are far better then the Sub $1000 machine
    Have you ever walked through the aisle of your local grocer and smelled the death of a dying bean?

    Thanks. Also, feel free to offer any new suggestions as to what machine is best for that price range.
