Can You Recommend a Good Coffee or Espresso Machine for Under $150?

Q: I am looking for either an espresso machine or a single-cup coffee machine that is very easy and quick to use (like push one button while I get ready for work in the morning kind of quick). And almost more important than the price is that it brews super-hot coffee or espresso.

I mean, like so hot I would need to let it cool down for a while before I can drink it.

I have often been disappointed by at-home coffee and espresso machines that turn room temperature the minute a little cream is added. French press is nice, but again, not hot enough.

I am looking for a sturdy appliance that makes a piping-hot cup of coffee or an espresso with the requisite cream, and all for less than $150. Do you have any recommendations?
