If there isn’t at least a bit of dirt or sand in your coffee, you’re not camping.


I’ve had one of these for a while now and love it. It is well made, super easy to clean and the result is very tasty. Recommendation: pump a does of hot water before making espresso, that helps the espresso stay nice and hot when made.

I was going to write that the shots can come out “cold” but its really all up to ones preference. An interesting thing to do may be to try different temperatures for various extractions. Certainly warming the unit first helps if you want piping hot espresso.
