If you or someone you love is a coffee snob, this automatic espresso machine is worth the splurge.

I’m a coffee snob, but you wouldn’t know it from the cheap drip coffee maker that’s been perched on my kitchen counter for, well, always.
Despite the fact that I love a barista-style soy latte in the morning, I rarely indulge, until recently when I splurged on something I’ve wanted for years: a fancy schmancy coffee machine.
I scoured Amazon’s Black Friday deals, reading reviews and searching for something that ticks off all my coffee dreams.
I found it in the Philips 3200 series.
This automated espresso machine comes with a built-in milk frother and five coffee varieties you whip up with just a finger to the touch screen.
Think espresso, cappuccino, latte macchiato, Americano, regular coffee and hot water (for all you hot tea and cocoa drinkers).
But it doesn’t come cheap.
I purchased this while it was on sale the week before Black Friday and got it in before the kids came home for Thanksgiving.
They loved it so much they even ordered one for their home and office.
The regular price of the Philips 3200 series is $999.99, but I got it on sale for $549 (45% off).
It was honestly the only way I would splurge, but The Husband and I love it so much that we haven’t spent a second on buyer’s remorse.
This machine is pure magic, and super simple to operate.
If you love your morning coffee time as much as we do, this pretty machine is a must.
And if that hard-to-buy-for someone on your Christmas list loves a good latte, this will make an excellent gift.
