Nothing beats a great shot of espresso or a sweet and delicious latte from the comfort of your own home, so we set out to find the perfect home espresso setup. After testing and experiment with a wide verity of expensive and inexpensive espresso machines, grinders, and accessories, we were head over heels about the following goodies. 

Espresso Machine: Lucca A53 Mini designed and built specifically for Clive Coffee by La Spaziale. We opted for their made in Portland, OR Walnut side panels and portafilter handle. (see video below) 

Grinder: Baratza Forte AP Grinder.

Coffee: Calendar Blend by Pony Brand Coffee.

Tamper: Walnut Clive Tamper made 100% in the USA

Milk Pitcher: 12oz Milk Frothing Pitcher.

When you find yourself in the market for this dreamy home espresso setup, the rad folks at Clive Coffee have so generously offered one of their beautiful tampers with your Lucca purchase. Use coupon code: ablelucca

That machine is most certainly on my list when I can make the jump to home espresso.

Any specific reasons you chose the Mini over the Full model? I like the simplicity of not having to plumb myself, but I didn’t know if there were other things I missed.
