For many people the long lines, and rising prices have them searching for ways to gain that wonderful coffee drink from the privacy of their own kitchen. I know standing in line with overly tired, financially stressed people to grab a cup of frothy coffee deliciousness is not always worth it. Sometimes I walk out feeling more stressed than when I walked in.

My research brought me to the De’Longhi ESAM 3300. This coffee maker leaves the doors open to many choices, be it cappuccino, espresso, latte, or just a plain cup of coffee.
