Splurge of the week: Coffee machines that are worth the cash
De’Longhi Coffee Maker
If you’re the kind of person who goes 30 minutes out of your way to get a roast that can’t be found anywhere else, then this might be the gadget worth splurging on for you. De’Longhi is synonymous with high-end coffee machines that even the most average barista enthusiast can use. You might balk at the five figure price tag, but at that price you’re never going to be hitting up your local Starbucks again.
Price: AED10,000, souq.com
Nespresso the Essenza Mini
Nespresso has made a point of being the go-to coffeemaker for every home, and this space-saving beauty is functional and fast while also making a great espresso. At just AED615 (or a month’s worth of daily AED20 pick-me-ups), it almost pays for itself. Get one for your desk and you’ll never have to buy a brew again – just expect your workstation to become the new meeting spot for everyone in the office.
Price: AED615.25 inclusive of Café Istanbul and Caff Venezia, ae.buynespresso.com
