Espresso not expresso

One of my biggest gripes when I'm in the good ol' US of A is the lack of good espresso, even in my beloved NYC (which is where I am now)... mind you there are plenty of decent espresso places in NYC but when I'm being charged $2-$3 for it, I want it to be really good, not just decent. For the past three months I've tried many places and haven't found anything exceptional until I discovered (drum roll please).... KAVA. I strolled by there yesterday and had a very good macchiato, it cost me $3 + change but I enjoyed every sip of it and I enjoyed the decor.
Well done, Kava, well done...

$2-$3 a cup? Ouch! Can you buy an espresso maker and do it at home?

Yeah, I do have one at home but when I'm at work (where we have no burners) I still need my post-lunch espresso.

This is off topic but do you tutor the Italian language? I live in Manhattan and have been following your blog for a couple years now and envy your bilingualness! I have been studying for the past two years but my conversational skills are abysmal. Thanks!

Stella- nope, I don't tutor. Sorry!
