all dreaming aside, a good balance of price/quality/features that are popular with the board are:

  1. Breville Dual Boiler with Baratza Vario grinder (I have this at home and in my office)

  2. La Nuova Era Cuadra with Vario grinder (if you don't trust the long-term reliability of the Chinese-made BDB).

Either of these is going to be ~$1600 total, although this time of year you may find a great deal.

As you increase your budget, there are many other options!
