Very useful read, perhaps the prices could do with a little updating though

Been here a few days and have re-read this really useful guide again. Thanks to Glenn.

My intention was to get a "keeper" machine for my birthday next year but not so sure now.

I don't have much room so am looking for a small footprint machine. Thought a Lelit Mara would be the keeper I was after, still think it would but maybe it's a bit ambitious for a 1st machine. The other option is to try and pick up a Gaggia classic 2nd hand.

Whatever I do, a move from my present Lavazza pod machine is on the cards when I retire and have more time on my hands.

Correct gramma and stupid spelling mistake (there could be more ;-) )

If you can afford it, a Lelit Mara wouldn't be a bad choice for first machine (or a keeper for that matter). The more expensive machines are easier to use as they haven't been built to such a budget.

Thanks ashcroc, always nice to know my thinking is heading in the right direction.

It doesn't hurt that the Mara is shiney and looks like a proper espresso machine into the bargain.

I can't see a change in my coffee machine status until about this time next year. It will give me time to save my pennies and call it a big birthday present. I'll have more time to spend playing, sorry perfecting my technique, as well. I hope to get a niche zero grinder too.
