OK, here's the situation. In payment of some work done a friend said he would prefer a coffee machine than $. Budget is pretty flexible but I'm thinking $2000-3000. He has a grinder already so don't need to factor that in.
What I'd like to get him is something new (not second hand), dual boiler, fully plumbed in, single group, 58mm baskets.
What kind of options can you think of which satisfy these?
Located in Tasmania....
Grinder is a Mazzer. A super-jolly I believe. Should be well and truly up to the job for home use.
No real constraints on bench space/size.
I should also add that it doesn't need to be volumetric.
Can't go wrong with either of Chris's choices, I nearly gave in on buying that $2500 Evo but my wallet is happy I didn't.
I seriously doubt he would ever need to move on from the Alex Duetto II combined with a super jolly.
