I got this little espresso maker for Ryan from here about 2 weeks ago and we have had frothy lattes just about every morning since. Probably the best 25 bucks I have spent in a while. I had never used one of these before but its super easy – just as easy as making coffee in a coffee pot and is about as quick too, if not faster. I also found this milk frother from Ikea in a drawer that I bought about 2 years ago for $2 and had not ever used it. The combination of these 2 is fantastic and I think I have been more productive at work the past two weeks because of it. If you enjoy espresso and dont want to spend 2K for a fancy guy then this little friend is just about perfect.
