Wife demands better espresso machine

yes.. if you are new to the field.. trying out something is of limited value because your taste and skill are at the beginning of the learning curve.. So research as best you can, buy the one you find will fit the bill, then learn to use the machine to its potential.. that will take a while

Upgrade thoughts on La Marzocco Linea Mini or Rocket R58
