What's the Best Way to Make a Latte at Home?

Good Questions

Q: I am considering attempting to make my daily lattes from home and was hoping one of you guys may have some experience here. I don't want to spend a lot of money, I enjoy the drink but am in no way an aficionado. I have it narrowed down to either the Bialetti Moka pot and Aerolatte frother, or DeLonghi Pump Espresso/Cappuccino Maker EC155 15 bar. Both are under $100 and seem to have great reviews.

Does anyone out there have experience with either of these items? Or any input on which style is better in the long run — hassle to prepare/ clean up after and replacements filters/ parts?
