I love coffee. I love espresso. I sometimes wake up longing to attach myself to an espresso IV…except that I’d rather taste it going in.
One of these days, that means I’m going to have to convince Mr. Twistie that there is room both in the budget and the kitchen to put an espresso machine on the counter. When that day comes, this is the one I want.
Why this one? This Jura-Capresso espresso machine not only looks great, but has the sorts of features I’ve been looking for. It’s programmable, can make eight cups of espresso, has a built in grinder and water filter, and is reassuringly made in Switzerland. With precision instruments, that’s always a good sign.
More than that, the customer revue at Amazon includes the following line:
If you can tie your shoes, you can use one of these machines.
Now that’s what I call reassurance!
If you’ve got some spare cash lying around and a Jones for espresso drinks, this might be a great time to get it, too. Right now, Amazon has it on sale for more than seven hundred dollars off the list price. That means you can get it for just $1,998.00. Now if I could just find that much spare change in the sofa cushions….
