Christina, <Snip> think). I need more experience to tell the difference between normal crema and blonding.< The 'Tools' arrival including the bottomless PF will not only allow you to tune-up your tamping technique with hard to miss (wear an apron first shot or two) immediate feed back, it will also allow you to 'see' when the blonding is real or not (tiger-stripeing that is impossible to see with a spouted PF). Nice machine.....I'm jealous. Mike (just plain)

I'd expect nothing less and then I'd be jealous:-) Kona Konnaisseur miKe mcKoffee URL to Rosto mods, FrankenFormer, some recipes etc:http://mdmint.home.comcast.net/coffee/Rosto_mod.htmUltimately the quest for Koffee Nirvana is a solitary path.

Guess the only thing left would be to redesign the outside to resemble the Bric in styling. Of course one could Cloisonné the entire thing or even gild it.
Or we could copper plate it and put an eagle on top and mount the whole thing on a marble slab
Damn! You guys are sure good at developing game plans for a project........gonna have to think about this some more. If I could just finish up the current project - - - -. Mike (just plain)
