sorry if this is the wrong part of the forum please move it if it is.
does anyone have a suggestion on a good espresso / latte machine that also grinds the beans per cup? i would like one that wont break in the first month like my cap machine...that wont cost the same as a house
i was looking at the melisse touch screen fully automatic but i heard bad things in the reviews, i loooathe the ones that just spew steam for u to heat the milk yourself, it should foam / heat the milk for me.
thanks you all for the time to read this and for replying!

Welcome to CoffeeGeek!
Sounds like you're looking for a superautomatic coffee maker. Unfortunately this forum is probably the wrong place to ask for advise on such a machine, because most people here will be coffee gourmets and prefer a traditional portafilter espresso machine for various reasons, the main reason being that it makes far better caffè. Superautomatics are mostly about convenience, and less about espresso quality. It's almost like to opposites that exclude each other.
But the best superautomatic I know that is capable of making acceptable espresso, if maintained properly, is the QuickMill Monza, which is also pretty sturdy. However, this quality comes at a price.
