As much as I LOVE coffee, I am still very frugal when it comes to how I enjoy it. I've priced some of the popular coffee makers and came sooooo close to buying one the other day. Then I "heard" in my thinking, "Use what you have."
Mine is an older version of this one:
Pump Espresso Maker (BVMC-ECMP55)
When looking for an espresso maker, years ago I decided on a $79 Mr. Coffee Espresso machine. I had read that the better type is PUMP driven, so found one in a local discount store and bought it. I've used it for years without any problems.
How many of you use a straw to keep from staining your teeth so badly? :-)
Here is one little tip to make your coffee even better. I buy the coffee flavoring syrups at Starbucks. If they have enough, they will sell you a huge bottle for $12.95.
My home made morning latte recipe:
1. 2 shots of espresso (2 oz=1/4 cup)
2. 1 cup of low fat milk (frothed
with the machine.
3. Starbucks(TM) flavoring
4. The steamer doesn't always warm it as
much as I like it, so I just put it
in the microwave.
Thanks for stopping by!
