Should you be interested in making a flat white at home, contributor Sirin Kale uses this De’Longhi espresso machine every day. “I love this coffee machine on a sort of desperate level,” she writes. “So much so that it’s ruined the experience of going to coffee shops for me — I’ve barely bought takeaway coffees in the past year.” And though it might seem an onerous process to make your own espresso, Sirin writes that “the whole process takes around four minutes: approximately the same amount of time as an Aeropress, but more hands-on than a cafetiere.”
Though this espresso machine is normally over £200, while noodling through the Amazon sale options, we noticed that the metal model is a third off (£150, down from £220). If your aesthetic is more matte, the black option is also on sale, but at a lower discount (£180, or 17 percent off).
