Yeah, I got no idea. I like good coffee. I don't buy beans from supermarket. Have tried a mates pod machine, it was balls. And don't like the waste aspect of the pod system, even though the convenience aspect is appealing. I know you can recycle them though, but no waste trumps recycling. What do I look at? Requirments would be smallish footprint, at least 2 shots at a time, can warm and froth milk, and as Auto as possible (maybe one that grinds the beans and spits out the shots auto), easy to clean. $500 max ideally. And I can easily source good beans, whole or already ground.
