An alternative to Francis Francis?

Dipsy | Dec 8, 2004 11:46 AM

I had decided to buy my husband a Francis Francis espresso maker for Christmas, but I've started thinking that spending $650 on an espresso machine is a little insane. I'm not saying my beloved doesn't warrant a $650 gift but we have a lot of baby/adoption related expenditures coming up so I'm having second thoughts. My little Krups espresso maker has languished in a cupboard for years now; we never really liked it. Surely there's something between the two ends of this particular spectrum? Thanks for your input!
