Never do auto if you are serious about good coffee. And I would recommend getting a separate grinder.

For the home the Breville Barista Express is the best.

Is that budget for just the machine or need a grinder too?

Ideally it includes grinder for ease of use.

Barista Pro by Breville is solid

Saeco - hands down.

Jura A1 auto works great if you don’t need to make lattes and fancy coffee. Super convenient to just press a button, empty grinds every once in a while and fill water tank. It looks nice too. ($800)

One I’m looking at closely is the Phillips 3200 automatic with LatteGo frothing

Jura Impressa C60

Have an offer that pays ~$350-450k a year, but is very bonus heavy and about 25% of that or more will be restricted stock and options. Making ~$350k now all cash. And the way it’s structured, in the first year I’ll end up being ~$50k short for the year of where I would be if I stayed. Also requires a big move to a location I’m not too keen on. WLB is better, probably 50 hours a week but need to be plugged in 100% of the time. Any considerations I haven’t really thought about? What should I ask?

Deloitte Human Capital Consulting I am currently a student considering my options for careers. I have an internship lined up for Deloitte this summer in their Human Capital department .

Could someone please provide insight into this role.
