What to look for when buying a coffee maker?

Q. I'd like to buy a coffee maker (the espresso type) but they're a bit pricey on average £250. I have however seen others for around £100 and wondered what the difference is and what I should look out for.

A. There's a huge difference between pump and steam espresso machines, and the bars of pressure in the machines (needed to compact the grounds when brewing). I had a cheap Melitta before; and now have a DeLonghi Magnifica 3300 which is unbelievable! It has a water reservoir and a bean reservoir; grinds beans fresh for each cup. In addition, you can make multiple cups, without waiting for the machine to "cool down" (a con with cheaper machines). It has a great frother too; and a reservoir to hold use grinds, so you aren't emptying them after each cup (another con with cheaper machines). ... Check out the stats for the Magnifica 3300. Yes, it's pricey, but you can find it New on eBay (with warranty & still in box), and it's rated the highest of just about any other machine.......

Does anyone know of a good coffee maker with a timer so your coffee is ready in the morning?
