Which can be best espresso machine in 200 dollars budget?

Hello, I am a coffee lover at the beginner level and now want to buy my first espresso machine. 

I have read a lot of reviews on google but still confused. because I want to buy De’Longhi EC155 but few people don't have good reviews and thoughts about this espresso machine.

One of my friend using Mr. Coffee ECMP1000 and a big fan of this machine he is continuously suggesting me this espresso machine but whenever he offered me coffee of this machine I really didn't like.

so please give me your opinion about the best machine at the beginner level?

Note: I on a tight budget around 200 dollars

I must admit that Mr. Coffee machines are great budget options, but some people I've talked to don't like that it's made of plastic, so I advice to consider other models as well! I have a great list of tested machines saved, which meet different requirements. https://pickadvisor.org/best-espresso-machines-under-200/

By the way, I own woderful Breville machine!

You can check Mr. Coffee BVMC-ECMP1102 Cafe Barista Espresso and Cappuccino Maker.

Features:

  • It has an electric 15 bar pump.
  • It comes with one-touch controls. This way you can go for the single or the double shots any which way you feel.
  • It has a control knob that automatically controls the froth.
  • The milk reservoir is removable which allows you to use it as milk storage for the amount of milk that was not used during the brew.

We also have a complete reviews on Best Espresso Machines. You can check that out.

Well, not quite on topic. But if you want a better taste, then maybe French Press? It takes less space, it's cheaper and coffee tastes arguably better. It's not that tricky, and lots of tutorials are available. 

Cheap machines, the stuff from Target, Mr. Coffee, Krups Machines, etc. - can't produce the pressure, consistent temperatures, or steam. Will likely break in a short amount of time. Sounds pessimistic, but I'm talking from my experience as my relatives prefer these to manual ones.

We've bought De’Longhi EC155 several years ago, but unfortunately, the machine only last a few months before leaking. I cleaned it religiously, and only when I disassembled it a bit did I see that there the culprits were multiple faulty parts such as washers and hoses that go bad far too quickly. We wanted to replace it by the same one, but in the result I went with the Mr. Coffee machine instead. And it's been way better. 

If you really want to try automatics, then, honestly,  I don't think there's a big difference between 50$ and 200$ machines, as long as you have a nice grinder.

It's just my personal opinion, but I'd be more than glad to answer your questions if you're still choosing.
