Hi, Sue! "Break the bank" is a little different for everyone. Is there a budget you're trying to stay within? Will you need a grinder, as well, or do you already have a good grinder?
Hi back Sue! Yes, got a Baratza Encore grinder, so good to go! Thanks for reply! Sue
Giotto is a great option but it will cost more than 2000 bucks, if that is not your budget, do think about Breville 920XL. It's a great machine with dual boiler...
I've heard great reviews about the Breville 920XL.
