We currently use Nespresso capsules for espresso. Just wondering if anyone has actually installed a full espresso machine from coffee beans. Wondering if it's more economical that way?

We have a Jura Impressa s90 I bought at a restaurant auction. Press the button and it grinds the beans, presses them, pumps the hot water through and voila. I also use a Netspresso milk foamer. 

It's in our kitchen, and we offer our guests espresso or lattes for a small charge $3 or $4. A few take us up on it. Its great for our staff, so they don't have to be baristas - it's just fire and forget.

I have a Nespresso machine upstairs I use. Thought about using it for the guests, but all it probably would do is generate more questions and calls about how to use it.

Friends have one. They love it. It's out for guests to use, with instructions.

We've got a Delonghi ESAM1400 and I love it. It's in the kitchen so not available for guests to use, but I do have espresso on the breakfast menu and I get asked occasionally.

  Looks like you and Generic should do an innmate meet up!  Can't let a nice machine sit around when a friend could use it...

Not the same voltage, dear.
