    Good Combo under $2500

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi CSers

    I desperately need to purchase a new machine and grinder as my cheapy EM no longer does its duty. I have been waiting in anticipation of this day since January when I started researching but now need to decide.
    At this time I was deciding between a Silvia with PID and vibiemme Domobar levetta and a good grinder. I am still now in the same predicament - not being able to decide on a combination. Therefore I would love some ideas on good combinations that I would be able to speak to site sponsors about.

    Thanks for any advice
    Melinda

    Hi Melinda,

    I think that with your budget, you might be able to set your sights a little higher.

    If you wanted to head towards a HX grinder combo, something like a Expobar eb-61 lever and Compak K3 touch would be achievable within budget...

    You are most welcome to make contact if youd like some advice.

    regards

    Chris

    Oh your machine doesnt do the job anymore? Do you even know how to use it?
    So if `your` getting a new machine does that mean you will finally make the coffees?

    I really like the Expobar eb-61 lever and Compak K3 touch so far.
    Im sure it will be much better than the EM i have been making Melindas coffees with, now i cant wait to get a new machine as over the last few months i have been getting beans from CS and they are fantastic. So i can only imagine how good they will taste on a real machine.
