An easy jolt of energy
For many people, an espresso drink is only something that can be acquired at a chain coffee shop, after doling out too much money for a shot of energy. But Cuisinart is here to help dispel that myth. Their Programmable Espresso Maker is an easy-to-use system to brew single or double shots of espresso, with a simple dial on the side to turn on and off the stainless-steel steaming apparatus—just in case you’re more in the mood for a latte than a straight shot of espresso. And even though the user interface is streamlined and nearly foolproof, the machine is sleek and shiny—a great, professional-looking addition to your coffee bar or breakfast nook. The price tag isn’t bad either—the Programmable Espresso Maker from CUISINART starts at just $199.
