After music and dogs, my passion is coffee. This year, I purchased a device that totally changed my java drinking habits and saved me from spending money in coffee shops. The Barista Touch is expensive, but if you want to learn how to make espresso drinks like lattes and cappuccinos at home, it's fun and totally worth it. If you drink a latte once a day for a year, it'll end up costing you about $1,460 (or $1,825 with the tip your barista deserves). That's way more than the $1,000 this machine will set you back in the long run. The Barista touch has a built-in automatic grinder and an automatic steam wand. Also, the digital display gives you the exact right coffee temperature with every cup. The touchscreen display lets you pick settings for the grind, brew, and milk froth level, too. $1,000.
