Let’s get all delusions out of the way: “Don’t be obsessed with your desires… A flute with no holes is not a flute. A donut with no hole is a Danish,” the immortal Ty Webb once mused, and he had a point. An espresso pod machine is not an espresso machine, and the liquid it delivers, while inspired, is not espresso.
I’m what my friends and family like to call an espresso snob, as you may have already gathered. I don’t like regular coffee, and avoid it at all costs unless I’m about to fall asleep at the wheel, at which point I might reluctantly stumble into a Starbucks. Yes, Starbucks does make espresso, but I hate that too.
