    Is there a combined coffee+real espresso machine

    I enjoy an espresso or latte/cappuccino made on my ancient Starbucks (!!) espresso machine. My wife joins me sometimes but prefers our regular single serve (K...) type of coffee. My counter space is limited. Is there a single machine that can make both a pressure-pumped espresso/latte and a regular drip single cup of coffee?

    Not really, but this question pops up often on forums. For those wanting both types of coffee I recommend using an espresso machine and make Americanos to take the place of drip, etc.
    I'm a legend among my own kind... you my friend are just a legend in your own mind. Later!

    I have spent lots of time searching the web for the existence of this type of machine but none of them offers a real solution. Thanks for your suggestion re Americano - I'll try it with my wife's coffee and see how she likes it.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I gave this a look but an online search ibndicates it is best used for espresso although it makes a larger cup if required. I'll keep looking.

    While I prefer a traditional espresso machine that involves tamping and weighing they're probably better off with a Nespresso machine. Pods aren't as good in my opinion but I'll take a Nespresso over a Keurig any day of the year. They're pretty decent for a low effort device.

    I have a the Nespresso first before I got the Rocket Appartemento for Christmas. I think the Nespresso isn't that bad and produces better creama than I do as a beginning home barista. You can also find companies that make their own espresso blend and you can grind your coffee and put it in reusable pods. I still prefer taking the time and effort making my own espresso with a semi automatic machine.

    P.S. I think of the Nespresso as the Keurig of Europe as you will find them everywhere.

    The Spinn machine will be able to do exactly that....IF it become available someday!

    Otherwise the Breville Oracle is very handy to make good espresso and very easy americano with auto tamping and super easy milk frothing with auto purge.

    The Decent Espresso machine can make a brew/pour over type coffee:

    I am using a KRUPS EA9010 which can do 17 different kind of coffee/drinks. Wife loves it. It's kind of big, barely fits under kitchen cabinets. And it's hard to refill coffee beans once it's under there.
