|There's some crema!|
If you are looking for a beautiful thick crema on top, go to a high end model. I appreciate the finer qualities of an excellent barista (check out the Peace Coffee shop in Minneapolis - some of the best!), but I will not be too picky for the daily hit of caffeine that gives a warm and cozy feeling that lasts. And thinking of warmer weather, will be an easy way to make iced coffee this summer.
