Have you ever stopped and thought about how much money you would save if you cut out your daily coffee purchase? With a flat white in Dublin averaging about €3, 5 to 7 days a week, it is a habit that can quickly add up and quality varies wildly between cafés and franchises.
If you’re a coffee fiend, there is a better way to get your fix and ensure your daily cup of life is exactly as you like it, every single time.The Sage Dual Boiler is a coffee lover’s machine. The Dual Boiler™ is for the coffee connoisseur who prefers to control every step in the espresso process.
Exclusively at Harvey Norman and priced at €1699.90, the Dual Boiler is an investment in never suffering a bad cup of coffee for the sake of a caffeine hit ever again. What’s more, The Sage Smart Grinder, which retails at €279.90, will be given as a gift with any Dual Boiler purchased in Harvey Norman this Christmas – so it is the perfect time to invest for yourself or the coffee obsessive in your life.
Carefully calibrating every element of extraction, the Dual Boiler delivers superior sips with precision and exactitude, just as you would expect from a machine named by Australian Barista Champion Craig Simon as his number one choice for making coffee at home. He rates this genius gadget as “24.5 out of 25” and calls it “ridiculously good.”
On the technical side of things, the Dual Boiler ensures optimum water temperature using digital temperature control technology and eliminates the variables in the extraction process with a unique Over Pressure Valve. This feature regulates the pressure throughout the extraction, which simply translates to perfect espresso shots, without a hint of bitterness, every time.
Even skilled baristas can over or under pull a shot of espresso, but the Dual Boiler takes the guess work and human error out of the coffee equation, and as with all Sage appliances, it has been designed by experts to produce perfection. If you want to sharpen up your barista skills, there is also a shot clock and pressure gauge.
Finally, if you want to become a dab hand at Latte Art, the Dual Boiler comes with a steam wand designed to create perfect micro-foam milk, which is essential for that final flourish on your flat white.
While you’re in Harvey Norman, another tempting Sage gadget is the ideal Christmas gift for the aspiring master chef in your life – The Sage Smoking Gun. This small but mighty toy allows you to infuse everything from caramel to whiskey (smoked Old Fashioned anyone?!) at home without setting off alarms or braving the cold to fire up the BBQ coals.
Trust us, there is nothing that cannot be improved with a seductive smokey flavour – cheese, meats and all your favourite festive treats could do with a shot of hickory or applewood. This is one gift you won’t want to give away, so probably best to adopt a one for you, one for me approach with the Smoking Gun, which is priced at €99.
