Thank you for replying. I appreciate any advice.
Budget - I’d say hopefully sub £400 but there’s a little flex for the right machine.
Yes espresso focused definitely.
Niche - I’ve never heard of these before, they certainly look nice and smart.
Sage - I’m not the biggest fan of my Barista Express, mediocre results are all I get from it, I believe the grinder to be the weak point so would the stand alone grinder be of much better build?
As for e37s / Mazzer I don’t know how to differentiate and figure out which one to spend my money on.
