Caffeinate Your Life with Espresso Machines & Coffee Accessories

By Courtney Bannerot

BMW makes powerful, fast, sexy . . . espresso machines? If you’re as picky about your morning jolt as 007 is about his martinis, the Saeco Primea Touch Plus Espresso Machine from BMW Group Designworks USA is for you. Let’s just hope you have Her Majesty’s Secret Service financing your escapades into coffee perfection. Or, finance it yourself, armed with this math: the espresso machine costs about the same as a 20-month, daily Grande Latte fix from Starbucks. And it may be faster and easier to operate this little beauty than that complicated nonfat, extra-hot, half-caf, partridge-in-a-pear-tree latte your barista preps for you. Instead, go DIY luxe with the press of one button to heat, brew, and froth your caffeine fix—strong espresso or latte to go, go, go.
