One of the perks of having a home espresso set up: no need to compromise when it comes to milk choices. I far prefer almond milk to anything else (I'm not allergic, it just tastes better) and most cafes don't serve it. And even if they did, "grabbing a coffee" is realistically a 20-minute ordeal.
So it's quicker, cheaper and tastier to make it myself (isn't that almost always the case?) And after almost two weeks sans-coffee, this was a really nice way to perk up a Friday.
