The Flair Neo is an excellent intro to the world of home espresso. This isn't espresso-like, this surprisingly affordable brewer makes true espresso (6-9 bar pressure!) with actual crema. It includes their pressurized portafilter which allows for higher pressure extraction, even with a blade grinder! This can be replaced with their stainless steel bottomless portafilter for even better results, and you can also upgrade to a piston with a pressure gauge for even more precision. If you're looking to make quality espresso at home, this is a great place to start.
