Been a long time since I've posted. I have been home roasting for a little while and want to start pulling espresso shots at home. I have the option to buy a Nuova Simonelli Mac2000V 1 Group for $650 or a smaller "cheap" residential type machine. Some of the other machines I'm looking at are the Krups Home Pump machines, DeLonghi Pump, etc. for $60-300. What suggestions can you make about any of this? I'm a little concerned that the Mac although a great machine may be overkill. Thanks!
