Robes and I love a good shot of espresso and have been in search of a suitable replacement for our espresso maker since our Bodum Granos (the second one we owned) went south on us a few months ago. It was so cool looking on the counter, when it sizzled, heated up and died I didn't even want to throw it out. I actually didn't for two weeks... ( Don't say it....I KNOW)
So, as I was searching for HOME DECOR at M&O, this stopped me in my tracks.....I fell in love...
Could this be an ESPRESSO MAKER??????? Yes!!!! and it has a name "THE DIVA"!!!
This is one of a line of very WOW appliances by Bugatti, Italy.
The line has been out for a couple of years but has evolved and increased in popularity.

This winged beauty is a TOASTER. I, at first glance, thought it might be a deep fryer until I saw the slots....
How'd you like to slosh up some margaritas in this baby?????? Other colors for spring: the purple in the first picture, acid green, lime (pictured here), tangerine and chrome. But you want to know what sent me "Round the Bend?" This!!!!!!!!!
Yep folks this is a Diva bejeweled with none other than Swarsovski crystal!!!! I went nuts over this and Robes says "MA you don't even wear that much JEWELRY!" I am not a blingy person but this is so obscenely wonderful and ridiculous at the same time, it floats my boat. So, what happens if you lose a stone, do you take your espresso machine to your local Jeweler?????
Living in a small town in Texas I can imagine the look on their face if I walked in with one of these. I am standing with patrons who have watches and rings and I am holding a 20 lb espresso maker that needs a stone replaced. IT WOULD BE ON THE FRONT PAGE OF THE LOCAL PAPER! BTW, it also makes a delicious cup of espresso as they were pulling shots out of a White one at M&O. Don't want to get the grounds stuck in the crystal one I guess........What do you think??????
