    Coffee Machine for 15 year old

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi Guys and Gals,

    First post to the forum so here goes. Im 15 and began a job at a cafe in June this year. Ever since, I have grown a passion for coffee, especially making it. It is for this reason that I would love to purchase one with some money from working and/or from Christmas.

    I dont want to go all out and buy a really expensive machine, I just want to buy a small one for $250 or less, that I could move around whenever the bench space is needed. I dont want an automatic one as I would love to practice the art of coffee making. Is there anyone who has any ideas of what I should buy?

    Thanks :)

    Breville or Sunbeam, Get unpressurised baskets, and a decent grinder (em0450 at least), Could have a rather good setup for $250 if you shop around and stay out of big department stores. a Quick online search, and I found a Sunbeam Em3600 for $100 and an em450 grinder for $90. Add the delivery and Unpressurised baskets to that, and youd still have enough left over for beans* ;D

    As Laughing indicates, the most critical pieces are the grinder and your skill level. You can learn an awful lot with a simple machine.

    There is a much info here and its a good place to start your research.
