Thats hilarious Troy...classic man!
Jay and Troy-
Not impressed with my current machine at all, and don't have the funds to drop on an expensive espresso machine either. Does the aeropress or stovetop machine give you that nice thick expresso shot anywhere close to what an expensive commerical machine can make? Which one is better b/t the two?
Steve, I think you'll be disappointed in the quality of the shot, as there really isn't one. Boiling water is pushed up from the bottom water container, ends up as hot black strong coffee in upper chamber, no foam, just black strong coffee, which is fine for me, but at some point,I'd like a espresso machine, but Troy is right about the quality of grinder. I have a 100.00 grinder now, which I thought would be OK, but told by many that I should upgrade, so really, I don't feel like dropping 400 on machine and 300 on grinder all for a cup of coffee.
Could by some more gear or fly out an train with Greg and Coach by for a weekend, now that is worth dropping some cash on.
Herer is that basic machine, I have stove top and electric model, both work OK, bu not great.
w/f/s coffee safe
