And that’s how I spill the beans
Are you also one for those people who need that perfect shot of espresso in the morning to get your pulse kicking and get your day started? Alas, I am one of them. I’ve been battling with the idea of cutting down on coffee and trying to take on life without having to depend on this substance. There should be a rehab for us. Until then, let me tell you about the best espresso maker that I got, to make my morning coffee shots even smoother and more power-packed.
It was a gift from my wife, not to mark any occasion, but a very thoughtful one (she knows how edgy I get when I haven’t got my fill of coffee). I’m talking about the SAECO HD8753/87 Philips Intellia. Before I delve further into details about this one, let me tell you a little about the espresso machine I was using earlier – De’Longhi EC155. Don’t get me wrong. It was great too and served me well for all the time it had been around but as is true of all items in the lower price range, there’s a certain amount of work to do to keep them running. They need cleaning and maintenance which means effort on your part, so you can consistently get good coffee. Obviously, it was a bit noisy too.
The Saeco is definitely much pricier than De’Longhi but it comes with the perks, which makes it worth it and the best home espresso machine that I laid my hands on. Its fully automatic features make me feel like I have my own personal barista at home making me coffee exactly the way I prefer it – the right amount of coffee strength and temperature that I desire. The best part is, this machine cleans its own mess, leaving me to relish my cup of coffee. Luxury galore.
