    Advise Please: Looking for Best Starter Espresso Machine and Grinder

    I'm looking to start learning how to make espresso rather than using the Nespresso machine. I want a really simple machine that is easy, doesn't take up a lot of room, will not make a huge mess and won't make a ton of noise so I can one day upgrade to a professional quality machine to use for either church or church events for now. For my grinder, I want one that is easy to use, doesn't make a huge mess, and make a ton of noise. I'm looking to spend no more than $500-600 for now.

    Are you looking to spend $500- $600 total - for both - an espresso machine and a grinder?

    Good grinders for espresso are Breville BCG820BSSXL Smart Grinder Pro and KitchenAid Burr Coffee Grinder. For espresso, I'd definitely go for an electric burr one, better than a blade one for sure
