As far as the Lelit combi goes, it is an excellent machine and produces first class coffee. I have found the grinder to be pretty spot on (much better than the EM0480 I was using). The only possible downside I have found is that with the grinder and hopper being integrated, the beans tend to warm up so I wouldnt leave fresh beans in it for a long period of time.
The only other thing I dont like about it is the leaky steam valve.
The positives far outweigh the negatives though with excellent coffee, consistent grind quality and plenty of steam. Pound for pound, I think it is the best value machine on the market.
Which ever way you go, Im sure youre on a winner with either combination but make sure you factor in a good tamper to go with it.
Just try to avoid upgraditis.
