Espresso is to coffee, as good design is to art. You can call any old thing coffee and any old thing art. But to truly be set aside and aspire to the perfection of espresso or Great art. Espresso as a whole is an experience from the moment you grind your beans to the second you take the first sip.

A fitting extension of this process is a beautiful machine like this  handcrafted  bare wood espresso machine built entirely from Norwegian wood to give a more  Nordic  sensibility  to the traditional  Italian  beverage. Breathtaking. Credit Øystein  Husby, Audun Grimstad, Ã…sne Kydland and Mariko Kurioka Rohde, for  achieving  a wonderful balance between cultures.

Dear Coffee, I Love You
