You are sure to get lots of opinions and suggestions, but first a few questions?
Do you own a decent grinder (not a whirly blade but a minimum of a Sunbeam EM0450 or better ($150 +/-) - some would say minimum of an Iberital Challenge circa $300)?
What sort of coffee do you make (milk based or straight shots)?
How many people would you expect to make coffee for at any given time (regularly have friends over for coffee or just 1 - 2 cups most of the time)?
And also, where are you located?
There is a long list of site sponsors across to the left that are very helpful at fitting people out with a machine / package that will suit their needs and (sometimes stretch) their budget
