U would probably want to raise your budget. A good grinder can easily cost RM2.5k by itself, and almost the same for a machine, maybe a lil more.

Google reviews of "600N" and balance it against the fact they cost 20% of a European branded grinder.

Also, what's your preferred brewing method? If only espresso using unpressurized portafilter, I would guess your needs are pretty high standard; then maybe not good enough.

Espresso and unpressurised. Trying to get the bare minimum and cheapest for espresso. 20% of 2-3k sounds lovely

In general most members here don't treat Starbucks as real coffee. They are more like coffee flavoured syrup/sugar drinks company haha
However you are most welcomed to stay and read and hopefully we will successfully brain wash you over to the dark side icon_idea.gif

RM10 thermometer from China gotten off Ebay. A little slow but works well enough for water temps
Are you using it for water or milk?

Welhome/惠家KD-310 is a product rebranded from Sunbean. Is KD310 and Baratza Preciso a good match ?
The problem is they cant be found in local.
Since they are electronic, if I buy from Taobao, will TAX be imposed. I think postage alone also wont be cheap.
And afterward maintenance ? like service, parts change after degeneration? should i add these into consideration ?
