I mentioned this on facebook today but it didn't satisfy me. So I will mention it here. It might help.
I am drinking the first of many cups of Starbucks coffee, given to me by my dear sweet husband in the form of a delicious gift card. Even better than the espresso machine he wanted to get.
Have I ever told you about my thing for espresso machines? Well, they don't work when I buy them. I can use my brother's, I could use my mother's (if she had one), I can whip up a cuppa from any one's machine, but the machines I buy for myself never, ever, work.
They don't brew, they don't steam, they blow up (might be my fault), they fall apart.
I need one.
