I used to own a coffee shop, and was a good barista for my shop and I really miss a nice cup of latte or mocha, would love to have a nice espresso machine at home that is semi-automatic with a steamer and takes coffee beans.

I prefer if it is on a low budget, la marzocco if possible, a cheap one that could be refurbished.

There are loads of best espresso machine buyers guides out there. 99% of them recommend the Breville Barista Express.

I'd prefer something with a little more manual intervention like the New Gaggia Classic to be honest.
