    Recommend me an automatic machine

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    My parents' DeLonghi Auto machine has finally packed it in after 10 years' of regular use. They are looking for a new replacement that takes whole beans (roasted for them freshly by myself), and froths milk. They don't have a demanding palate but I have a vested interest in a decent machine for when I visit.
    They make around 4 cups a day, more on weekends, mostly milk based. They don't need an auto frother, but would probably be happy to have one. I have only just started looking for them and have no idea what is available or in what price range.
    Does anyone have suggestions?

    You might be looking for a super automatic I guess which grinds and brews both. These machines cost a lot but they really make the kitchen a lot of less messed. One machine that doesn't costs a fortune and gives a good cup is Saeco Xsmall Vapore. It will just cost around $500 and is a good choice in budget. The other I would suggest is Jura Impressa costing around $1600, it's a marvellous creation.

    I've had both a saeco talea and a jura c3. Great machines and decent coffee. Don't buy to cheap though, the components will be worn quickly...

    Thanks for the suggestions, guys. They ended up going with another DeLonghi but with 5 years extended warranty. I hear what you say about the cheap components Alex; hopefully, the warranty will protect them a bit. I have only had one coffee on the machine and the jury is out for me, but the folks are very happy with it so far.
