Sarkozy’s special espresso machine

I am a big Nicolas Sarkozy fan, but demanding that Columbia University procure a special espresso machine to make his pre-lecture coffee is a bit much.

The New York Post has the details:

Carla Bruni isn’t the only thing Nicolas Sarkozy likes hot and Italian — the French president demanded a special espresso machine when he visited Columbia University yesterday.
Organizers of his appearance revealed that the finicky French leader had insisted his choice of espresso machine be provided.

In addition to ensuring that he was properly caffeinated, Sarkozy also flew in a plush rug and distinctive podium for his talk on world affairs.

Someone should have probably told him that our normal coffee selections are rather good as we don’t serve Nescafe Instant Coffee like they do back in Europe.
