Haven't posted a deal for a while but saw this one and it's for all you espresso lovers. A decent automatic espresso machine below $350 on Amazon Deal Of The Day:

It comes with both pressurized and non-pressurized portafilter so you can use either pre-ground beans of any size or custom dial your shots. If you custom dial your shots you will also need a good espresso grinder such as Breville Smart Coffee Grinder Pro that can grind fine enough to be able to extract full flavors of the beans.

Deal is dead... but for the current price, consider the semi automatic and almighty Gaggia Classic Pro https://smile.amazon.com/Gaggia-RI9...1599108195&sprefix=gaggia+clas,aps,158&sr=8-1

IMHO, this is a good machine for someone that plans to buy pre-ground expresso. Otherwise, I would wait for the Barista express to go on sale and get an excellent all in one machine. They are typically 500.

Avoid this grinder for espresso IMO. Spend an extra $50 and pick up the Baratza Sette, a purpose built espresso grinder.

It would be a heck of a lot cheaper and quicker. Committing to espresso at home is taking on a new hobby.

I got one of these last year with a coupon, came out to $600, worth every penny. https://www.usa.philips.com/c-e/ho/coffee/espresso/philips-automatic-espresso-machine.html

I put in high quality fresh beans and it does the rest. Very little maintenance and I get almost perfect espresso every time. It's not exactly barista quality but it's low effort and delicious.

I was looking into one of those. If I could get one for $600 I'd probably consider it, but $800+ is a bit of a stretch.
