    Gday Mark,
    youll need to know the total power rating of all of the devices so you can work out the size of the generator. *You can get this info from the plate on the machine, but from looking up a few sites, I think the Mazzer is 250 Watts (I may be wrong, not owning one *:( )
    Adding these two gives you a total power requirement of 2250 Watts. *Generators are sold by kVA, not Watts or KiloWatts (kW).
    Without boring you with the details of electricity 101, youll need a generator with the equivalent or higher kVA rating than the equipment power rating that you want to use, so at least a 2.5kVA (This will give you a bit of leeway.)
    Are you going to be running other equipment from it, like a fridge or lighting? *If so, youll have to take their power rating into effect as well and youll require a bigger generator.
    Hope this helps, and good luck with your endeavours.
