Treat Mom to Coffee, Tea or Lunch To-Go with These Tasteful Gifts
Mo’ Joe for Mom
Let Mom have it her way with the KRUPS XP6040 ($360.00), a state-of-the-art combination espresso and coffee machine. If her taste is for espresso, she can craft an exquisite cup with the Swiss-designed espresso machine, featuring an Italian-made 19-bar pump that delivers perfect shots that will make her feel like she has a café barista at her service. The espresso side also comes equipped with electronic controls, 30-minute automatic stop, removable front-access 50-ounce water tank, side frothing wand, and Thermoblock technology for ideal heating and durability. The coffee maker side of the XP6040 offers a 10-cup carafe, one-button electronic control, pause-and-serve feature, removable cone filter basket, non-stick warming plate and auto shut-off after two hours. The design not only takes less space than two separate machines, its stainless steel styling will look fabulous on her counter. Available at Bed, Bath and Beyond or www.krupsusa.com.
