Espresso makers

Post by Mattei7565 »

I have begun researching espresso makers not made in China, most are. It looks like you can find high end models made in Italy. Any other info out there?

We love our Jura! Good fresh coffee was worth saving for the machine :)

Gaggia still produces in Italy. They've got a long experience in home and professional machines - and I really prefer the Taste of espresso made with Gaggia machines! Prices for a semi-pro portafilter machine start at 500,- (ofcourse you won't get an automatic for this price) which isn't much if you take in account that china-made deLonghi in this category range from 800-2000,- depending on how much they got to show off. So made in Italy sometimes even comes a bit cheaper than made in China which means DeLonghi is a complete rip-off!
