If you have been reading here for a while youll know the standard advice is to drop into your nearest sponsor and have them talk you through and demonstrate the options. It is standard for a reason - it is very good advice, not only to see the machines in the flesh but also as much hands on training as you need.
Talk Coffee and/or Genovese would be in your neck of the woods?
When you do, Id imagine they will say if you are spending 3k on a machine something a bit better than a Mazzer Mini would be a better match (even if you cut your machine budget down a bit to allow more for a grinder.
I can tell you I am VERY happy with my Bezzera Strega and Malkonig Vario combo! :)
