The Presso Espresso Coffee Maker is a fairly simple piece of machinery. Just pour in the boiled water and then supply some elbow grease by pushing down on the two handles to produce a cup (or two) of espresso. If you’re paying top dollar for coffee beans, you might as well have a piece of machinery to bring about the best those beans offer.
Every morning should start with a double shot of caffeine to get the engine neurons lubed up and firing. It’s only $150, which seems steep in comparison to the $30 you would normally spend on Mr. Coffee. It’s also made from recycled aluminum and claims to have the smallest carbon footprint of any coffee maker, which I couldn’t care less about, so long as it makes a rich cup of espresso. It looks sturdy and big.
