My opinion: It depends on 1.  How many cups are to be brewed each day. 2. How serious you are about coffee. 3. What is your budget?

I would say as an example you will brew three cups each morning before taking off to work. A "pod" or "filter system" would be fine depending on your budget.  If you are looking at many cups (5 or more) per day a "pod" system would be less expensive in the long run.

I'm not exactly sure as to what you're asking about the question, however if you're asking what kind of coffee machine would be best for home use, I'd definitely say a Keurig coffee maker if you have that money. They're very quick, and the coffee "cups" are really cheap to get.

If you have any more questions for me, feel free to ask.

Thanks, Brendon! By style, I meant capsule/pod, filter, or the type that grinds the beans (expensive, I know)! I was wondering which was best in terms of ease of use, value for money, reliability...so best all-round, I suppose!

There are several online sellers advertising their used of coffee machines, and selling them at incredibly low prices specially for espresso machine. You might be in for a great deal if you make sure the machine is still in its optimum working condition. If possible, ask for a trial of the machine. Power up the espresso maker and let it run for some time and pull some shots. Also check the interior of the machine and make sure the parts are complete and check for possible sources of leaks. It is also important that you do extensive research on the brand and the model, and the year it was built. The list on www.littlecoffeeplace.com/espresso-machines is a good place to begin your search. Also remember that what you’re getting is a USED machine, so if anything ever goes wrong, repairs could cost you a lot.
