I’m in love. My husband, wise and wonderful man that he is, gave me a new espresso maker for Christmas this year and it has reinvigorated my whole experience of coffee. Our old espresso maker was almost 10 years old and limping along on its last legs. The coffee it made at the end of its life often reminded me of used paintbrush water. Then, last thanksgiving, we took a trip to my sister in law’s home. My brother in law had an amazing automatic espresso maker, and I took endless delight in playing with it.
