I’ve had my espresso maker for just about a year now and, let me tell you, it was worth EVERY penny. I bought it for myself for my birthday last year and hemmed and hawed over whether it was going to be worth it. It’s definitely a lot of money for a kitchen appliance. Even before the pandemic, I loved it, but especially now, being able to make cafe style coffee drinks at home has been a GAME CHANGER.
It was one of my top non-clothing items sold last year during the holiday season and I wanted to come back and a) reiterate how much I love it, b) tell you it’s one of our most used items in the kitchen still, c) that it’s currently 50% off, and d) comes in even more colors now like navy!
If you’ve been thinking about it, you can’t beat this price. And if you’re anything like me, the price of lattes out really add up in a way that switching to making them at home could cover the cost of this baby pretty quickly. (Especially if you have two people like Mike and me!)
Up until very recently I had only really made hot espresso drinks. Either cappuccinos or plain shots of espresso. But then I started experimenting with iced lattes at home. Don’t ask me why, but I had never thought to try one at home and guess what. I prefer them at home because I can pick the exact milk to espresso to ice ratio that I like.
Really the only thing better than having someone else make you a cup of coffee is making yourself a drink to your exact liking!
