AOL Money has an interesting post as to how you could save nearly $2,000 a year making your own espresso at home. Of course, they are also trying to have you buy an expensive espresso machine in the process, but the idea is good: you can always save money by doing it yourself. However, rather than splurging hundreds or thousands of dollars on an espresso machine, I plan on trying out a much simpler espresso maker from Stokes.
This “3 CUP ESPRESSO MAKER, 2 CUPS & SAUCERS AND FROTHER” is selling for $14.99. Yes it is not as fancy and it won’t impress my friends, but I am convinced that it will do the job that I want it to do: make very concentrated coffee which is what we call espresso.
