Two years ago Mike and I decided to buy an espresso machine and coffee grinder for our anniversary present to each other. We didn't want to spend an large amount of money, but we also didn't want a cheap machine that we wouldn't be happy with. After doing a lot of research, watching Youtube videos and reading a lot of reviews we decided to buy the Gaggia New Baby from Whole Latte Love.
It has lived up to our highest expectations. We use it daily and I would purchase the same machine over again if need be.
