Coffee maker or Espresso?

I like to buy a new coffee maker for my home, but which one is better, a normal coffee maker or an espresso? Espresso machines are more expensive but does it really make the taste better. How is your experience with espresso.

    Unless you like the process of making espresso, stick with a good, regular coffee maker. You can get one with a built in grinder, so the coffee is fresh. I have both, but I rarely use the espresso machine.

    Espresso and coffee are two different beverages. Espresso is a specialty drink and is thicker and more concentrated that coffee. On its own, it's also a bit sweeter than coffee. Espresso is often used as a base for lattes and cappuccinos.

    Personally, I think of espresso as an after-dinner brew. Coffee, on the other hand, can be consumed any time of the day or night. I'd go with a regular coffee maker. If you do, I also recommend buying and grinding your own beans (instead of buying pre-ground coffee). It tastes fresher if you grind your own.

    I love espresso, but I would not have an espresso machine as my only means of making coffee. I need my regular brewed coffee more often than I would be drinking espresso

    My espresso turned out YUCKY! I tried over and over again, for about a year. The espresso maker was a gift from a friend. I tried turning it into lattes, cappuccino, etc. They were gross, nothing like Starbuck's. So, I would recommend a regular coffee maker. Treat yourself to Starbuck's once a week, and drink your other coffee daily.
