VillaWare V41006 Moderno Prima Espresso Maker
This totally retro machine from VillaWare brings you back to a different day in Italy when espresso reigned and black plastic espresso machines weren't even invented. The classic styling of the VillaWare V41006 Moderno Prima Espresso Maker
is sure to be a focal point on your counter with its bright stainless steel skin. This pump-driven espresso machine isn't all good looks, as it's got a nice cup warmer on top as well as a 15 bar pump and a 1,000 watt heater. The unit comes capable of running both ground espresso and ESE espresso pods with different filter inserts. The prominent temperature gauge is positioned on the front of the machine with simple toggle switches to control the heating and the pump for creating your espresso. The removable 25-ounce water tank is a little on the small side, but will handle plenty of espressos before needing a refill. The frothing steam is controlled by a classic looking lever arm that brings the user back to the days when espresso was hand-pulled.
What's also attractive is the price of this machine. Other brands have similarly styled machines for quite a bit more. The price of this machine is a little over $200; not bad at all for such a beautiful machine. See the product page at Amazon for a $25 off savings code and Free Shipping.
