From simple to elaborate, espresso coffee machines come in all sizes and price ranges to suit almost any budget.
The smell of that frothy and steaming perfect cup of coffee need not be savored just after dinner.
Why not curl up with a favorite book in your most comfortable chair, kick your shoes off and let your mind delve into that storyline while sipping that espresso late morning or mid-afternoon?
Never will I forget the day that my German girlfriend and I sat at an outdoor table in a small town in Germany with a grand cathedral as a backdrop.
We decided to enjoy a freshly prepared cup of espresso while seated in that plaza listening to the chirping birds fluttering among the trees and watching the mothers pushing their babies in their prams.
It was such a relaxing way to spend a few moments in time and it is forever frozen in my memory as a salutatory event.
Other wonderful meals shared at some great restaurants with my husband through the years have capped off many a fine evening with our cups of espresso.
My husband was the one who first introduced me to the delights of espresso many years ago and I have been a fan ever since.
He has made espresso at home for our guests and me on numerous occasions.
A nice little piece of biscotti can be a perfect accompaniment to a small frothy cup of steaming espresso for those who wish to have a little something sweet with their java.
Roasted Coffee Beans
Now that you have your home espresso machine, an important part of making a good cup of espresso coffee is securing some good espresso beans.
After all...what you put into your espresso coffee machine will only be as good as the quality of ingredients.
As you can see there are many choices of purchasing coffee online as well as going to your local supermarket where choices will be more limited in the selections offered.
You can also go to gourmet coffee stores and buy coffee beans for your home use. The choice is yours!
Many people choose to buy coffee online for the simple convenience that it provides.

If you purchase whole bean coffee you will need a coffee grinder.
These type of coffee accessories need not be costly. If you purchase an electric coffee grinder, keep it solely for that use so that other flavorings do not get mingled in and taint your ground coffee.
We have several coffee grinders for that very reason!
An antique old fashioned hand cranked coffee bean grinder with a pull-out shelf adorns the top of our refrigerator as a decoration. You can see that image below.
Those type of grinders predated my coffee drinking years! Yes...they truly did.
I am not yet as old as Methuselah! I would have to live at least another 900 years for that! Just think of the extra years he had for drinking coffee or other libations!
