Thanks for the info bro
I'm still on 2-1 coffees, because it's simple and fuss free
Having milk is important..
I like the 'flower' pattern coffee, and I wonder if it's realistic to ask for something like that?
Those barrista grade machines which need a lot of maintenance are a no no for me, but those that just give a black coffee out of a capsule are also a no no..
(there's some Picolo machine given out free right now for example)..
Please post instead of sending a pm, so more can learn.

Has anyone tried the illy 7.1 offered by SPH?
What kind of capsules does it use, are they affordable and how's the maintenance for such a machine?

I used an Illy machine like that one for a few days (in a hotel) and it was fine, not noticeably different from my Nespresso at home in terms of results. It uses its own proprietary capsules. But one thing that is very noticeable is that the thing is built like a tank and very heavy. Dropping that handle/capsule holder part on your marble countertop could be very costly.
