Coffee is the elixir we all need right now. Stuck inside during the current health crisis, trying to stay motivated. More than anything, it’s important to replicate a real work environment as we tap into a remote office.
Using the same laptop, the same apps — and drinking world-class coffee. It all helps us feel normal in these trying times. To help you pick a high-end machine that makes coffee that rivals or beats what you’ll find at a coffee-shop or at work, try these models.
