  • Advice for young coffee fanatic.

    Ive loved coffee for years, however, Id love to learn more about the art. I currently just use a French press and granted it does get the job done, but I want to steam milk and make latte art and the such. Any suggestions for a starting kit for a beginner? Much love.

    If youre young, Im assuming budget is critical? What sort of money are you looking at spending?

      Your most basic kit that will do what are asking about would be a hand grinder and a Belman stovetop. Budget approx $250.
      After that you move into thermoblock machines for similar money as the Belman, but much reduced long term life expectancy, and the cheap thermoblock machines have relatively poor steam performance.
      If you can budget around $500 for a machine there are plenty of good early model used Silvias around, and they have good steam performance for 1 or 2 drinks (or more if you are careful), and you would need a better grinder, minimum of Sunbeam EMO serie, better the new Breville, or Rocky Budget another $200 -$400.
      After that you head into twin boiler and HX machines at total budget of over $2000 and often much more.
