Mmmm... esspresso... what's wrong with it, eh?!
You can always top it up with boiling water...?
It's just not the same as a slow drip brewed coffee, harsher and somehow less satisfying. This is a "long espresso" or "americano" as people like to call it nowadays.
Looks very space age, I like the laser display sceen :)
I'm not sure that you should compromise with coffee. Or chocolate. Or lots of other things.
It does look rather fancy though.
I have something like that. But it is so smart it makes anything from watery awful coffee to something you could walk on. It also has a lot to say with its digital readouts--like clean me, decalcify me, empty the grounds. more water, more this, more that...runs the house, and me.
try playing with it to make some normal coffee. It's smart but demanding. Like some people I know.
Does it taste of silicon?
