Modern life demands a certain amount of decision-making. Yet, however meaningless a decision may seem at first, they all have their consequences. Take, for instance, the first major decision of the day: the coffee consideration. Certainly there is a fair amount of cruising by on autopilot during the dawn hours, but what if breaking out of the mold of the routine was as easy as pressing another button?

For many, the ability to start out the day with either espresso or drip coffee simply isn't an option. It may not be easy to alter one's routine--especially the morning routine--but the DeLonghi Combination Drip Coffee, Espresso, Cappuccino and Latte Machine encourages exploration. Users are given the ability to break out of their particular habit and choose a new brew--all from one appliance.

Featuring a frother, a drip coffee maker and an espresso maker, the 1,500-watt combination machine measures about 14.5 inches across, 11 inches deep, and 13 inches tall. A front-facing water reservoir along with grounds access allows for operation without the need to wrestle the machine about to get it going in the morning. And for those who know what they want and have no need to question their decision-making process in the morning, the machine does come with a programmable timer.
