Can we talk coffee for a second?

vaaccess thought this was worth mentioning said

I appreciate everyone’s wine opinion, have a question about coffee that I’m hoping you can help with.

We have a Keurig that we pull out when friends and family are over, but generally we pull espresso shots from a $300 Delonghi semiautomatic. It’s showing signs of demise and we’re revisiting our options.

We had a super automatic years ago.

I’m considering the Illy system so we can do coffee and espresso with a single device. I considered the Nespresso that will do both, but don’t like that it uses a centrifuge.

Part of me wants to go with the Breville Barista Express, but the convenience of a pod system is so alluring. Anyone try the Illy system?
