If you cant manage a grinder, dont buy a machine either as you will be guaranteed failure and you will be unhappy with your purchase. An unhappy client does our business no good.
1. Buy a good grinder and embrace beautiful, fresh filter or press coffee
2. Silvia and Rocky (we have one of each left and no more til March). You will then lose $$$ when you upgrade to the machine you really want in 12 months..or less
3. Do nothing and wait until you can justify the gear that you want
Clearly, you want something better than a Silvia, but your budget and perceived needs do not align...
Best bet may be to go out for coffee and take a raincheck...because impulse purchases are often the wrong decisions...
