Romanticizer and Geek-in-Residence

Fond of espresso but tired of buying it at Starbucks/your local indie snobby coffee shop?  You can make it at home–and you don’t have to spend $4oo at Bed Bath and Beyond, either.

We just bought the Bialetti Moka stovetop espresso maker. 


It’s affordable. It’s simple. It requires nothing more than a hot stove, coffee grounds, and water.  And it makes legit, rich espresso in five minutes.  Basically, there’s no reason for you to NOT have this little creation if you like espresso and want to save some money.  There are many other brands that I’m sure work great, but I’m partial to the fact that this is Italian-made…I like to imagine it makes EXTRA-delicious espressos because of that….
