I rather enjoy an occasional cup of stovetop "espresso"...yes, I know it't not really espresso...thus the quotes. I know that Bialetti's are cheap and fine, but I'd prefer something with a bit more style. Is it worth putting out the way more bucks for an Alessi? I know they look great, but do they make better coffee? Is there something in between that looks and works great? I can afford the Allessi, but $200 is a lot, unless aside from the style, it really does make better coffee. What would you recommend?
