Hello,

Im new to the forum, and looking for a new machine. my budget is around 600€/800$
After several years of Nespresso, my machine has died and i have had it with the €0,30 a capsule. so i want a good starting machine but have some questions.

full auto seems handy, always fresh beans, fast and clean.
but im worried the quality of full auto isnt going to be near the semi machines. so im looking in both categories atm but really need some advice.
ive looked at some machines and underlying links are on my buy list, i hope anyone can give me some advice on them.

Semi-automatic espresso machines featuring an electric brewing pump which is manually turned on and off by the user. These machines are relatively simple to operate and with a little practice you can create rich, authentic espresso, cappuccino and latte as good or better than any coffee house. Some experimentation is required to achieve a perfect espresso; however, the main variables are limited to coffee bean quality, grind fineness and tamp pressure. Each of the semi-auto machines we carry includes a steam wand to froth milk for preparing cappuccino and latte.

Automatic espresso machines are essentially the same as semi-auto units with the added convenience of automatic brew volume controls. Once the machine is loaded with ground coffee and ready to brew, you simply push a button for one or two shots; the pump turns on then automatically shuts off when the preset brew volume is reached (in contrast semi-auto units require the user to manually turn off the pump when desired).

I have a quick research about the coffee maker that you have and I think I''ll go with the first one. Looks very neat and firm and also I search the specs and I think it is good enough. It reminds me of my DeLonghi Coffee Maker
