Welcome Juney.... [smiley=thumbsup.gif]
If I was in your position, Id opt for the Lelit before the Classic. Its almost the same physical specification under the bonnet as a Silvia. This coupled with excellent build quality and materials, it would last you for many, many years with the proviso that its looked after.
Probably the main reason Id side-step the Classic is the design of its Boiler... Made from cast Aluminium with the heating element cast into it as well. It needs more care with regard to maintenance than the Lelit as a result, since Al corrosion can become a problem over time. The Boilers are not too expensive to replace though, to combat this. The great thing with Lelit style machines is that the heating element can be replaced independently of the Boiler (if ever required) but this should be a very rare event given good operating technique and adequate maintenance.
The grinder included with the Lelit is a Lux unit coupled with infinitely variable grind adjustment. These are considered to be an excellent little grinder and favoured by several respected coffee industry professionals. They are a little noisy though but I used to have a stand-alone stepped adjuster version so a unit enclosed within the casing of the Combi may not be as noisy. Best thing is to try and get some hands-on demos with one or more of our Site Sponsors if possible, as this will give you the best idea of what to expect.
All of our Site Sponsors are listed on the L/H side of the page and the Email Address to contact all of them with your requirements and location details can be found right at the bottom of this list.
All the best and have fun with your research.... :)
