    Which Auto machine

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I am looking for a machine to take with me in our caravan and don't want a pod machine. currently have a Saeco Via Veniza and a Breville smart grinder and would like to make the coffee making a bit more compact for carrying and storage in the van but would still like freshly ground beans, can any one recommend a good fully auto all in one machine that wont break the bank?

    Far from fully auto, but I've thought a presso would be good for a caravan. Small. No power needed. A decent to good coffee depending on how much of a hang you hav of it. And in my opinion , fun!

    'fraid I couldn't help with a fully auto though. Just trying to think laterally for you!

    Oh . Fully auto means it grinds the beans as well. You're trying to avoid taking a grinder .

    Ignore my last post.

    yes I was trying to get away without a grinder, I have a Nespresso pod and an Aldi pod machine and an Aeropress and hand grinder so I have a few ways of getting a cuppa but I thought a fully auto may make good coffee in a compact package and another toy to tinker with.

    Hi Tony

    A quick point: It is always a prob on the road to keep the beans cool enough. Even more so when fully autos transfer extra heat into them...

    Sounds like what you're looking for is a "superauto" they have some fairly major drawbacks (for instance they generally use a ~7g dose) and you have to spend significant $$$ on them to get a good one.

    If you're concerned about footprint have you considered a "combi" machine (integrated grinder), smaller footprint without compromising on coffee.
