    Please help with choice of espresso machine

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi There
    Im new to this site, but being italian I love my coffee. Ive been using the old school bialetti cafetiere for many years, so its time now to upgrade to a proper espresso machine.

    I just wanted some recommendations on a good pointy end machine, it doesnt need to be automatic, and I dont want to start off with the cheaper machines as I enjoy my coffee to much.

    Can you please send some suggestions and as I live in the melbourne metro area, where are the distributors?

    Thanks
    :)

    Welcome to Coffee Snobs Joseph.

    Without a ststed budget you wont get a proper answer other than dont forget to spend up on a good grinder.

    I recommend you look on the left of the page for the sponsor "Talk Coffee".
    Chris there will help you decide what fills your needs.

    I bought my equipment from him and have been very happy since.

    Welcome JosephF

    I would recommend if you are in Melbourne to contact Chris from Talk Coffee
    Also a site sponsor (link,<<<<<<<< on left)

    I went with the Bezzera Galatea with a Macap M4D Grinder

    Very Happy with my combo
    However in the pointy end of the spectrum you will get a great machine no matter what brand you choose.

    But I strongly recommend that you test drive the machines and choose the one that is right for you
