ISOMAC Giada espresso machine adds quality to life

Since a double shot of espresso in a paper cup, like most things in Norway, is expensive and costs around $4.50, we thought by adding an ISOMAC Giada to our kitchen utilities we would increase quality and fun.
Sofare? Possitive on both accounts. Forget saving on it though
Here is how buying the Giada made sense:
- good design
- our home
- poor coffee
- to leave home for java
- to pay $4.50 for a double espresso
Is it a numbers game? Not really, but it's fun to pretend.
Machine + Grinder $750.-
=> $2.- a day (1 year)
=> $1.- a day (2 years)
=> $0.7 a day (3 years)
+ Beans pr. week $6.50 250g
Home made espresso costs
=> $1.46 pr. double (1 year use of machine)
=> $0.96 pr. double (2 years use of machine)
=> $0.80 pr. double (3 years use of machine)
Compare this to the annual consumption of $4.50 double espressos served in Oslo, where an espresso a day ends up costing $1642.-/year.
My advice? Add quality to your home and life by getting an espresso machine.
Be aware though, that every time you change beans, a number of espressos are made in vain to determine the correct grind size.
A little lie
You'll never go out to drink espresso again
