Espresso Yourself

There are now a multitude of coffee makers available in India. I recently purchased a very nifty, retro looking Espresso machine that has an old-style pressure gauge and toggle switches. One can now whip up a perfectly professional espresso shot, with the crema on top, within seconds at home.

If grinding your own beans and labouring over a stove is not your idea of fun, you can always pop into an international café recently opened with great fanfare in India. Just be warned that no self-respecting coffee snob would be caught dead in a Starbucks.
