Also don’t forget your water treatment and cleaning products.

This is ball park, for a basic set up that includes milk drinks, you should plan on having between $800-$1,200 to get started.

Since you’ve provided no budget, this is the shortest answer I have to provide.

If you go manual, no milk, you can get it under $500, or if you go semi-automatic with no PID and plan on using pressurized baskets with pre-ground coffee you can go for a Gaggia Classic Pro at $450 + a new tamper and milk pitcher gets you up to $500.

If you go under $500 with an automatic appliance, you’re no longer in the same category. You’ll be drinking shots that pour too fast with too much water, like a mini americano with hot, but not frothed milk. It is essentially a pre-made coffee drink.
