I am looking to buy a decent but not break the bank Espresso/Cappuccino machine within Park Ridge. I am most interested in the Espresso as I drink 2 to 3 shots a morning with milk. I have no ideas of brands. kind of important is I do not want a stainless steel one as I will keep in in my dining room which has dark cabinets and dark granite. I'm sure pods are not the way to go for good Espresso as the stuff I buy now is not pods. Can you recommend? Thank you

I love my nespresso machine and the coffee/espresso is awesome. It even comes with a frothier for milk that's literally just the touch of a button.

We have the Capresso EC50 and it has been the best espresso machine we have had. For only $99 it a good deal and very easy to use. Just use finely ground Italian coffee and you are all set. http://www.capresso.com/espresso-machines/ec50.html

If you're looking for a simpler, no-frills espresso, the Moka pot is awesome. And it's tiny so you can put it in a cabinet when you're done! https://www.amazon.com/Original-Bialetti-Stovetop-Espresso-Patented/dp/B0000CF3Q6

I used worked espresso machine and coffe and familiar with machines. I do Not recommend pod machines. Here is a website that you can do a lot of research also if you google you might be able to find coupons. Www. wholelattelove. com Brand saeco semi automatic it's small and easy to use. use whole beans. I have had one for 5 years with no issue and there's manual that you can get you bean ground start at $175. And some automatic for $299. Worth it and make awesome coffee. Here is a pic of what mine looks like. good luck any more info pm me.

I love my Jura Compressa! Makes espresso, cappuccino or coffee. Had over 7 years. Great customer service. Only had to call because Starbucks has oily beans which affected the machine the first time I used it. Got at Costco. Sir La Stable has them too.
