Expresso vs Espresso: A pro-Expresso Rant

I just read a blog post wherein 20+ people commented about how dumb, uninformed and possible "Trinker" Sandra Lee idiotically mispronounces 'espresso' as 'expresso' on her TV show.

So how about it, SE? Is she as wrong as when she changes the tones of her kitchen to match her clothes, or vicey-versey?

I lived in Brussels, and spent a ton of time in France, and some time in Portugal, so know my answer.

If I could make a poll here, I would: expresso, or espresso?

(And don't give me that bogus Italian alphabet argument either, linguistic scholars!)
