    Think Grant the fact I have a Sage grinder already, an all in one would not be the best machine for me.

    Had a look at a few coffee websites, top 10 machines 2019 and the like and Breville/ Sage seem to keep coming up on top?
    So looking at one of those, the one you linked to Gant or possibly splurge, do it once and do it right, and go for the Sage Dual Boiler.

    IF its worth the premium over the Duo Temp Pro?

    Its a lot of money, but afaik its a pretty flexible unit. steams well with its 3 holes and quiet. has a wakeup alarm system where it switches itself on and heats up in the morning to be ready for you...cool

    at that price tho, its up against a fair bit of competition. Think it has a 2 year guarentee and you used to get a free course of instruction, although dont know if thats still available.

    another worthy of consideration; had forgot its name... Lelit Mara 62... its a nice machine and cheaper than the sage slightly.

    Got me thinking too, thanks for the info guys. I donít contribute to this thread - not because I donít love coffee, but because I only drink black coffee, and have moved away from a pod machine (on cost and environmental grounds) back to an old school filter machine, but a bean to cup machine would be a lot less faffing around... and taste better to boot.

    Yup watch YouTube videos on them until you can't take anymore then go for something

    I just checked eBay and all the direct from Italy Rocket vendors have gone. This is a shame as they were much cheaper than having to buy in the UK. And you could give them a VAT number and they would deduct VAT from the price their side.

    There maybe other Italian brands available still, though, so I would at least look.

    Taste tests do reveal that some will actually prefer espresso from far less expensive machines than very expensive ones. Much as people will hi-fi systems.

    Good luck and enjoy.

    It's often easy to get carried away, and I've done it too. Much depends on how much time u are wanting to put into it and how and when you will use it.

    After saying that, you can never have too many toys.

    Good stuff, glad you liked them. I just put another order in, a bag of the El Salvador, and a bag of the Colombian, which is also excellent.
