Any non Espresso brew method from Drip Filter, Syphon or Vacuum, Plunger, Ibrik, Stovetop, Mocha Pot, Aeropress, Cold Press, Percolator, Presso or any other mad scientist process that doesn't have a pump and boiler combined.
Entry level (sub $500) domestic appliances that you would expect to find in the kitchen section of whitegoods stores. You can get a pretty good coffee from machines in this category if you use fresh coffee and dose/tamp well.
Pointy End ($1500-$3000) will find machines that are capable of making espresso at the same time that you are texturing milk. This end of the market also tends to get some real design flair and lot and lots of shiny stainless. Mostly the machines in this category are direct descendants of Cafe class machines.
Extreme Machines ($3000+) is the very serious end of the home espresso machine market. Some of the machines you will find in here would be comfortable in just about any cafe on the planet and most will have similar installation requirements (plumbing, maintenance etc). Most CoffeeSnobs drool over the very pretty toys in this category.
Agree on the above. But if you do have any devices that use coin cells, you can often pick up 20 or so off the evil bay (delivered) for the price of one at DSE.
How do they do it and still (presumably) make money???
Good call guys.
* Ran it without the portafilter and no pulsing...confirming a "pressure related" issue.
* Cut back on the Grind (slightly coarser) and no pulsing....again confirming a "pressure related" issue
So looks like I have...

Actually, I think that is one of the shortcomings of the EM7000. The EM6900/6910 had a 5Year Pump Warranty, but there does not appear to be any such Warranty for the EM7000. Have even checked on the Website.
I had it sent to the US for when I'm in the US. It was 950USD exclusive of postage so would definitely come in above.
I believe they come aligned by Craig and Paul - those requiring alignment should be the exception rather than the rule.
The 920 doesn't appear on the shelves often, so I got the local HN to order it in. There are scanned receipts on the net if you look around, by far the best deal with a price match - I got my bes920bs + SG + 5y warranty for less than the 900's are...
Double post here....Mods please feel free to merge my last 2 posts if you think it's appropriate to do so.
I'm looking at the Exobar Minore 4 and some one suggested looking the Quick Mill range...As I do not know much about the...
So i did a couple of roasts today. Setting 3, back to back roasts. The second one was MUCH hotter. I think the roaster would have had about 3 - 5 mins cool down between each roast. I turned it off at 13 or 14, so it hit the first crack much earlier...
