  • Advice-any decent machine that can also use ESE pods? (around $800)

    Hi all,

    Newbie here looking for advice on a decent machine that I can make lattes and macchiatos on but that my partner can also use with an ESE pod when Im not around. Budget around $800 for the machine. Thanks!

    How about a Silvia with a pod adaptor?

      or one of these (they come with an ESE filter basket as well as a single and double for fresh coffee)

        Thanks for the suggestions-I would probably prefer the Silvia (quality wise and longevity of parts) but am I right in thinking that the adaptor is time consuming to fit? Whereas the Lelit looks like it just uses an ESE filter which I am hoping is quicker/easier?

          Materials and build are similar on Silvia and Lelit, but there are differences as listed previously:

          Changing the filter basket on the Lelit would be easier than putting the adapter on and off the Silvia. Even faster would be getting a second PF with ESE filter inserted for the Lelit.
