You might feel you are “splurging” if you are considering a home espresso machine; however, after you see the amount of hard-earned cash you have saved in the long run, you will realize you were truly splurging money when you were stopping at the local coffee shop every day!
You could get a really over-the-top one for that amount of money, and you likely won’t even need to spend that much to get yourself a very high-quality machine you can use at your leisure, 24/7, whenever you wish — even all seven days of the week if you want, without having to leave the comfort of your own home.
Not too long ago, I was very much done with making the trek to my local Starbucks and waiting in line. At that point where I had truly “had it,” I made the decision to get myself a home espresso maker.
So I bought a semi-automatic machine priced in the mid range, and learned the few essentials that I needed to make good espresso from home.
This learning process really did not take very long before I was up and running, making espresso beverages equal to, and then even much BETTER, than those I had been paying “through the nose” for at the local coffee shop.
If you have been considering getting your own espresso maker but have been hesitant, either because of the required learning curve or because of the price, rest easy that the learning curve is not nearly as great as you probably now think it is.
If you have hesitated because of the horrendous cost of some of the available espresso machines out there, keep in mind the total mentioned above – $1,200 per year if buying an espresso drink five days per week for a year.
There are many different espresso machines available, and one is sure to be just right for you.
