Looking to get a cheap espresso machine to mess around with. I don't really drink Starbucks right now...but would if I had a machine at home to use.

Anyone likw the Bialetti Moka? I see it doesn't have the milk steamer, but could I buy this extra? I've read a lot of reviews that say the machines with the frother/steamer thing tend to not heat the milk too well, so most microwave it for a bit, then just fluff it up a bit anyways.

Looking to spend under $40 to try one out.
So far I've found Krups, Bialetto Moka, and a Mr. Coffee.
Anything else?

I don't drink coffee, but enjoy the peppermint mochas, caramel machiattos, white chocolate...heavily flavored drinks with milk base.
