I'm looking to get an espresso machine, preferably one without the grinder built in. I want to purchase a burr grinder separately, as I hear they give a consistent grind when compared to blade grinders (any advice on this is also appreciated).
I came across the Breville BES840XL, which gets great reviews on http://coffeemachinereviewer.com. I've also heard good things about the rancilio silvia.
It's a lot of information to take in, should I just go for the Breville and be done with it? What do you look for when reviewing espresso machines?
Any help appreciated.
Hi! Do you have a budget in mind for this purchase? That's going to make a big difference in the suggestions people will make.
