Same here. I have a basic Keurig in my kitchen and a slightly nicer one in my office. Sine Mrs BamaVol only drinks tea, the larger coffee maker stays in the cabinet until company visits.

If money is no object you're looking at a Jura. Grinds the beans and forces water through them. Delicious but not cheap.

If it is in your budget, I would suggest the Simonelli Musica espresso machine and Baratza Vario grinder. I just recently started using this setup at home and it is fantastic.

I still have 2 Nespresso machines for when I don't have the time to pull a proper cup of espresso.

Guessing there are a few coffee aficionados out there and I wanted some opinions.

I am looking for a single serve coffee maker that does everything: basically, start with water and whole beans, end with a great cup of coffee.

Any suggestions?

Nespresso is an OK brand on single serve coffee. They sell different models from a simple espresso maker to ones that make latter.

Buy the pods on ebay. Many are up to 40% off.

Have you thought about getting reusable capsules instead? Much better than buying cheap ones on eBay! [removed link to blog]

Hope it helps!

Yes cheap to run and easy to use. If it's just a decent tasting cup of coffee you want without using an espresso machine then they're fine. I used to use the small one when I went camping.

As pods and capsules are ridiculously expensive to buy in Argentina there's no incentive for me to use them.
