When it comes to choosing between a regular espresso or an espresso machine with a built-in grinder, which should you go for?
- First of all, it will come down to your budget. Espresso machines with built-in grinders are most expensive than one without a grinder. But if you’re planning on buying an espresso machine as well as a conical burr grinder, it will sum up to the same amount as machine with built-in grinder.
- But having a machine with the grinder built in automates the process of grinding and brewing. If you choose an automatic espresso machine, you’ll be able to have the perfect cup of coffee with a push of a button, the machine will automatically grind the perfect amount of coffee and brew it right away.
