I bought a Krups machine for about $100 and am now ready to move on to better espresso. Please give me direction and your recommendations. I'm not in the coffee business, I just enjoy it at home. Can you buy a decent machine that makes a great espresso for $400 to $700?

after buying and returning 3 different machines (from $200-$600), i finally settle on the Digital Italia from Starbucks.

for me at least, the perfect machine...i am not an espresso expert (yet), and most of my coffees are with milk (latte, etc)...i love the way this machines feels, looks, performs...nothing like it in the price range

currently, they are hard to find, i bought a store demo for $700...i've read they go on sale twice a year, maybe in february...they list for $995, not sure what the sale price will be
