love the video! and it’s good to see that in action… did you drink it? how did it taste?

I have to be mindful that SDF will likely see my response! … I had a sip but it was fairly awful I have to say. It was quite muddy and strong with no creama (you know, the yellowish cover on top) and it was very thin. Was likely to be my technique of course, I’ve never used one of those machines before. Also the coffee was Havanna organic beans – I find Havanna to be quite strong and there’s often a sour-ish taste to organic coffee that I don’t really like – the beans were quite sweaty with a long use-by date on them so I don’t know if that contributed as well. However, it was awesome that SDF organized it and if we’d had a chance I would’ve loved a cup that she made because she would know how to use the machine better than me. I guess we might never be invited back now. She had a plunger pot so we made coffee using that instead as I didn’t have all morning for me to mess around learning the machine!

well at least you put the machine to use! it looks like the kind of coffee maker you’d need to use a lot to get the hang of making a nice cup of coffee. I’ve always wanted to see it in action so thanks for posting the video anyways 🙂
