Let’s face it, we all need a little pick-me-up at some point during the day. Some of us just can’t function until we’ve got our morning cup of Joe. Others get 2 p.m. drowsiness in a serious way. And I’m sure quite a few of us (myself included) need a caffeine hit at both times. Luckily, coffee seems to have some health benefits that may come from its polyphenols—plant compounds that have antioxidant properties. Interestingly, espresso appears to be the form of coffee with the highest concentration of antioxidant compounds.
So, are you ready to invest in your coffee habit once and for all? These espresso machines will help you make your perfect coffee at home, taking you to certified-barista status.
