    Full Automatic machine under 2k???

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All,

    To start with, I know automatic machines are frowned upon a little....but I need to find a machine that my girlfriend can operate with ease and minimal fuss, especially for entertaining. *I will be using the machine manually. *I already have the grinder which is the Rocky. *I have seen the Sunbeam EM6910 around but would like something of a little higher quality.

    Two that I have seen are the Expobar Office Full Auto and the Bezerra BZ02DE which are in the ballpark for price.

    My requirements are:

    - Under 2k preferrably
    - reasonably small foot print
    - volumetric controls, but still with manual controls
    - good steaming ability

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers
    Phil

    Thanks for the quick reply Chris!

    Any reason for this recommendation apart from price?

    Cheers

    I think Di Bartoli had a sweet deal going here:

    if youre in Sydney. I had a little look at one the other day, and was impressed at what you get for the price.

    Are there any other machines people would suggest?

    Yeeza - Thanks for the comments...I am leaning towards the Bezerra.
