Dream espresso machine
Maybe the most beautiful investment you'll make all year

Dream espresso machineMaybe you want to get serious about your morning coffee, or maybe you just want to stop spending so damn much at Starbucks (your espresso-a-day habit is costing you nearly $750 a year, FYI). Whatever your reason, it’s time for a grown-up espresso machine. Allow us to recommend this beauty from Spanish manufacturer Ascaso. Like other machines at this price point, the Dream boasts a steam pipe for making lattes and a cup warmer on top.

But what really sets it apart from its boxy, metallic competitors is its sleek retro design, which comes in 14 different colours. Choose one that matches your kitchen colour scheme or go for one that stands out on your countertop — either way you’ve got yourself a hand- some piece of machinery that you’ll look forward to using. There goes your last reason to leave the house on Saturday morning. $650.
