Haven’t bit the bullet on a machine yet.. a local cafe around the corner from me is selling aero presses in the shop for $50. If I want to make a basic coffee at home is it a good investment? Or is it gonna taste no different to moccona coffee in a cup with hot water and milk?
I love my aeropress - I bought a second one for the office after enjoying my press at home so much.

Can echo the sentiments above about the roast. Medium (or even light) roasts work well in them, dark roasts less-so.

Is it worth buying an aeropress and milk frother seperate to make flat whites at home and have it similar to cafe quality? I don’t drink straight espresso’s.

You won't get a flat white from an aeropress. It doesn't produce espresso based coffees well.

What’s your budget? Get a breville dual boiler price matched to $1000 from your nearest retailer.

I know that I harp on about this machine and I have nothing to do with breville. It’s literally the best bang for Buck machine on the market

Was hoping to only spend 500ish, knowing that I'll drop 1.5-2 when I get a semi-auto.

If you're going to go an actual espresso machine (e.g. Bamino Plus, linked to above), it'll absolutely sh*t all over instant coffee. You'll get cafe quality coffee with no skill, and in the time it takes to boil the kettle.

I sound like a fu**in sales rep with the last 2 posts lol, but I can't stress how good the machine is.

I saw your post and just checked marketplace and there’s a brand new one in box for $250. Have enquired. Will need a grinder too though.

I have the Breville Smart grinder, but there's cheaper out there. Or you could just buy coffee grounds.
