La Cupola 3 Cup Espresso Maker



Caffeine addicts will appreciate a reliable stovetop espresso maker, which can make a sluggish morning easier to get through. Available for purchase at Hugh for $80, this 1980s style maker designed by Italian architect Aldo Rossi has recently begun to make a comeback. Hugh's Joe Posch says the post-modern style design is made of solid aluminum with a polyamide handle and knob. Does it feel like it's time to take a step up from the automatic drip coffeemaker you've had for years? A stovetop maker could be the way to go. Buy some quality espresso and try out a new method.
