Tom Hanks’s Third Espresso Machine

What a sweetie he is!

Tom Hanks sends White House press corps a new espresso machine,” Dylan Stableford, Yahoo News

It’s not the first coffee machine the “Sully” star has gifted to White House scribes.

During a 2004 visit to the White House, Hanks was surprised to discover that the press corps did not have a working coffeemaker, so he sent an espresso machine.

He even checked in on it during a return visit in 2010.

He then replaced it, because it was six years old. Now, that replacement is six years old, so he sent a third one.

Like I needed more reasons to love Tom Hanks. Way to support our institutions. The Enlightenment ran on coffee and so does the United States.
