But if it is, the Baratza Virtuoso will put an end to some of the bickering because it allows you to grind as little or as much fresh coffee as you want. The Virtuoso is easily adjustable for 40 different fineness settings, so for drip coffee or espresso, it has them covered. It’s ideal for couples that want to enjoy fresh ground coffee straight out of a great burr grinder, even if they can’t come to an agreement on the beans!

Rapid Steam allows the machine to go from brewing to steaming in less than 10 seconds, so making coffeehouse style drinks is a breeze.

Espresso Cups 8. Espresso cups

Why? Don’t forget the small stuff, because the bride and groom will probably need a matching Stainless Steel Sugar Bowl and some Illy Demitasse Stirrers to complete their set-up.
