We have a small Lavazza espresso machine in our office, it does the job, in the same way that a small sensible car does the job, it will get you to work and back, but it lacks the gleam and the pizazz that your dream car has. I have a dream coffee machine, it is the Elektra Belle Epoch. Google it, it is a tower of gleaming brass and copper and make the most amazing coffee. One day, I would love to own one of these machines, yes, it will make my kitchen appear tiny, and yes it will take up valuable work surface space, but would you let a small driveway prevent you from owning your dream super car if you had the chance? No? Well neither am I going to worry about not having a mansion to house the coffee machine in.
