  • Help Me.  want to buy my first coffee machine

    Hi everyone

    I would really appreciate some help. I would love to purchase a coffee machine and as i have never purchased one before i would really love some help. I am no expert on coffee but would love to become one and would love to enjoy and offer a lovely cup of coffee to my visitors. Probably looking at spending up to about $2000.

    Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks

    Welcome to Coffee Snobs.

    Thats a decent budget and will get you good equipment.

    Speak to the sponsors on the left of the page.

    Where are you so I can recommend a local one?

      ...or use the link that site-owner created at the bottom of the list at left
      " To email a query to all our sponsors at once:"

      As TG mentions, you visit a few, get some general guidelines, scan through the Brewing Equipment threads tosee what others may have said about your possible choices and then go from there.

      Price shouldnt be your ultimate guide: what is your current coffee choice (coffee type and quantity)

        You can still get some good equipment in this range. Does this price include the cost of a grinder?

          thanks everyone for your advice. I am in perth. the budget of $2000 would pretty much need to cover everything that i need.
          I am a pretty boring coffee drinker. Allthough i havent really experimented to see what other types i like to drink. i generally just stick to a latte or a flat white. perhaps i should be a bit more adventurous hey!!

          thanks again

            Figuring you would need to budget for a grinder, the "single boiler, dual purpose" might be the go (ie Rancilio Silvia, Isomac Zaffiro or VBM Domobar Vaschetta/Piccolo leaving you $400 or so for a good grinder (Rancilio Rocky, Ascaso iMini or Iberatal Challenge if you buy as a package.

            You might even be happy with the Sunbeam EM6910 - a good entry level machine with a lot of devoted users on CoffeeSnobs.

              Hi Louib and welcome,

              We ship to Perth all the time and your budget is realistic.

              As per the others, Id suggest the Vashetta and a good grinder- perhaps something like a Rocky or similar. With a few accessories, youll be on budget.

              You are most welcome to make contact any way you wish if I can assist...

              Chris
