While getting a coffee syphon or using that old French press that you've got somewhere in your kitchen is probably the best way of infusing coffee, there is something quite sexy and appealing about having a nice, good-looking coffee maker or espresso machine in your kitchen.
1. Pigment France's Espresso Machine
This beautiful machine is one of the rare ones that we've seen that's covered in leather. Although this makes this espresso machine stand out, we wonder if the leather would get tarnished since the machine would be used in the kitchen. The company also uses cane, willow, straw, wood and several types of leather. [via Appliancist]
2. Fontana Nescafé Dolce Gusto
This slim and multifunctional espresso machine can serve a variety of drinks, from hot chocolates, macchiatos, to cappuccinos. The Fontana uses the Nescafé Dolce Gusto capsules, which are readily available. The machine itself sells for around $170. [via Appliancist]
3. Piccolo Nescafé Dolce Gusto
If you're looking for a smaller espresso machine, then the Piccolo might fit the bills. It's virtually identical to the Fontana that's mentioned above, albeit it's a lot smaller. [via Appliancist]
