I am in the market for a new drip coffee maker. Ours conked out a couple of months back and we have been using the espresso machine for our daily dose of java. I love the coffee that my trusty Duomo makes BUT sometimes I yearn for the taste of simple brewed coffee.
Anyhow, I was looking for a nice new machine when I ran across – of all things – a coffee machine made by Bugatti. Now if you are not into cars, you may not have a clue as to what the big fuss is about. Truth be told, I probably wouldn’t have an idea as well if not for my husband, who is car crazy. Bugatti is the maker of the Bugatti Veyron, one of the most prized cars in the world. Watch Discovery Turbo (the cable channel) and you will see what I mean).
So how did they find themselves making coffee machines? Heck if I know, but I do know that their machines are beautiful! Even a quick look at that picture above will tell you that these are no ordinary coffee machines. A closer look will not disappoint.
Now here’s the clincher: these machines are also espresso machines! In short, they are not what I need. But hey, sometimes you do not have to get what you need if you find something this beautiful, right? Then again, the price tag is enough to make me get what I need and not what I want. How much is it? $1,300, fancy that!
