    Well, I finally bought an espresso machine to go with my grinder!

    Congrats. You got a very nice setup. The Gaggia Classic has a lot of followers and is a great little machine for the price. Enjoy.

    When we built the new kitchen, we included a built-in coffeemaker that can do espresso, cappucino, and various other types of coffee.
    It was about 2000$ but worth every cent. It also has a number of programmable shortcuts so when I get up in the morning, I can simply choose a 'Bruno' coffee

    Factoring what fancy coffee runs in the states these days ($4-5 easy), I see spending a few thousand dollars on a commercial coffee grinder and espresso / coffee machine as making the utmost sense / cents in my 25 years of experience. Funny thing is that it's usually lack of convenience and not the cost that prevents people from fueling their drug habit at home. Fully automatic machines have improved drastically in the past decade so that's becoming less of a hindrance.

    Bruno, pics or it didn't happen

    The only downside with these 'all in one machines' is if something breaks or malfunctions the whole machine needs to go in for repair as most are cramped on the inside between the plumbing and electronics. Of course unless you're good at doing it yourself which is not for everyone. Trying to find parts is harder than your classic E61 espresso machine. But he convenience really makes those machines shine. I used to have a Saeco in Belgium that would do everything from grinding to making your final cup of chosen coffee. It was a bit loud at times but it worked like a charm. There are some really cool machines on the market today.
