It All Started with that Damned Krups!
by Guest Author

Jim Pellegrini tells us this week of his progression from a steam toy and canned Maxwell House up to the ranks of a super automatic and other assorted "toys" that cost a mint!

Jim, as a recovering alcoholic who never drank coffee or espresso until I got sober, I know that gene. and it seems it is still going strong in me.  I have made the progression faster though.  In less than a year I have gone from steam toy to low end pump and now I gotta upgrade the whole mess again.  I loved you story.

I can so relate to that defective gene thing! My husband gave me the go ahead to buy a machine and I've spent a month figuring out which one to buy (and still have not ordered). Thanks for the laugh!!

Great article Jim!  I recently purchased a Gaggia Classic and I'm now on the hunt for a grinder - there's no stopping me now!
