You don’t have to go to Rome to do as the Romans do. It took a while for Americans to catch on to the European taste for espresso, but these days it seems as if there is a coffee shop on every corner to suit the growing demands of our sophisticated palates. Espresso boasts superior taste and tremendous versatility, not to mention a hit of caffeine to start your day with a jolt. Lattes, cappuccinos and other blended espresso drinks are just a short walk away, but getting your fix at the local coffee shop isn’t your only option. Pronto’s Espresso Machine Buying Guide can point you toward the right machine to help you find your inner barista (see also Coffee Maker Buying Guide).
