Suggestions for a good and economical (non-aluminum!) home espresso machine? (Google and the 'Net have plenty-o-suggestions, but the volume is overwhelming, and I have come to trust the personal experience of AskMe members.)

I'm not looking for something with a steamwand for cappuccino right now, as that seems to be just too tough. Just a stove-top or electric model that has a real (not over-sized) basket for the grounds, not one of these that holds enough espresso for five shots at a time (and thus makes a bad shot because there's air-space in there with the grounds.) (Those are usually aimed at people who are unfamiliar with espresso and think a shot should be the size of a small cup of coffee.)
As always, t'anks in advance.
