    New machine under $1200 WTB IS GEE good or lelit ?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    HI all, My original site name was shultzy but have forgotten the password so Im back as Shultzmyster !
    Been all long time between coffee machines (probably 12 months from my last post where I bought a EM6910 & 480 grinder combo , was happy with shots for a while but finantial crisis hit so had to sell my better half (i mean coffee machine) ;) Anyhoo I am looking at getting a new machine & having had Silva & sunbeam & super autos I wonder what to get next ?
    I drink capas strong & want a consistant machine that gives good buttery crema (best shot i got from any of my machines was from the em6910 but lack of skill being verry fussy has got me stumped at which machine to go for .
    I am the only one in my house who drinks coffee & i will do a barista course to improve my skills. I know you get what you pay for but my budget is $1200 including grinder I looking at the Gee or lelit any suggestions or better options ?
    cheers
    shultzmyster :)
