I only use whole beans from a local roaster and have a top of the line burr grinder. I'm probably a bigger coffee snob than I am beer snob.
Same here. I hope single origin coffee, relatively lightly roasted, and you use filtered water?
Who has a great recommendation on Espresso machines? I owned a cheap Delongi for several years that made a decent shot. Looking maybe at this one on Amazon
We have this one. No complaints, makes great espresso.
We had a krupps a long time ago and it made great espresso until it crapped out. We’ve had a rancilio silvia and have been making espresso on it everyday for a few years now. I have been very happy with it, but it can be finicky. Grind, freshness of beans, amount of pressure tamping. It can take a while to get the hang of making great espresso every time and you definitely need a good burr grinder. The most important thing is the coffee. If you use crappy coffee expect crappy espresso.
would get the model without the burr grinder. you probably already have a good grinder. why pay for another one?

In the old days, during my espresso serial obsession, the rule was to first buy the best grinder you can afford and then buy for an espresso machine. I used to have a Rancilio Silvia with an external pid . Then my coffee obsession went out of hand, and now I hand-pour filter coffee. With the right quality of coffee (the best and freshest light roasted you can find), better than 90% of espresso coffee.
My search of HSA only resulted in stuff I already know about health savings accounts, please give me a clue what HSA stands for and maybe I'll make more headway.
