Quality of Machine:
Is machine consistent? Is it easy to use? Does company back it with a long-term warranty? Are key parts made of high quality materials? Or does machine feature mostly plastic?
Convenience and Usability:
Some of us want to push a button and let machine do work. Others of us want to be intimately involved with each step of brewing process. Some machines come with a built in grinder - and other will require you purchase a special grinder. Think hard about how much effort you're willing to put into making a drink when you crawl out of bed!
Value is really a comparison of above features, weighted against price of machine. Are you willing to pay twice as much for a machine that looks stunning, but is functionally similar to another? That's your call!
Whatever you do, remember that espresso is one of life's finer pleasures. This probably isn't most practical investment you'll ever make, but it will bring years of enjoyment and happiness. As is case with most things, you will get what you pay for - I recommend you buy best machine you can afford whether this machine be for home, office or business use. As soon as you start enjoying your own handcrafted lattes and mochas, your investment will feel well worth it!
