It’s SO’s birthday in a few weeks, he’s so hard to buy for and won’t give me any ideas…but, he loves having a coffee every day, so I thought a coffee machine might be a good option… Any thoughts on brands or types of coffee machines? Do you have one and like/hate it? I’ve been looking online and can get what looks like some good coffee machines for under $200. I’m not a coffee drinker at all so I have no idea of these things though – any help would be appreciated!

My FI is obsessed with making coffee at home now but I am not a drinker of it either! Are you after a pod machine like Nespresso or an espresso one? We just bought my FFIL a Nespresso (got in on special at the Good Guys for $200 I think) for his birthday and it seems to be going down well but apparently if you are real coffee ‘connoisseur’ it won’t be good enough coffee for you… FI said they didn’t taste too bad though and it is quick and easy to use. We currently have an older version of a Breville 800 class espresso machine. That is pretty good for a cheaper one and makes a decent coffee according to FI.
He really wants a really decent one though so I’m thinking for his wedding gift of getting him this Breville Dual Boiler one that is over a grand…he isn’t having a ring and doesn’t want a watch etc so I can somewhat justify the cost provided he never orders coffee out again, lol. And it’s cheaper than a smart TV which is the other thing he is lusting over!
