Being a programmer, I thrive on caffeinated substances, most notably Mountain Dew and coffee. Chocolate covered espresso beans are also a favorite way to consume this most vital of chemicals.

My favorite espresso machine encountered thus far (in the "consumer grade" category, that is) is the Krups Espresso Novo. Some time ago, I bought a commercial espresso grinder from a pawn shop for only $100, and have been collecting espresso bar stuff ever since! If anybody has a line on a single station commercial espresso machine for not too much $$, please let me know!
