Topic: Capresso Mini-S (2 msgs / 35 lines)
1) From: Jon Rosen
Does anyone here have experience with the Capresso Mini-S? I'm  
interested in it as a coffee maker, rather than an espresso maker. It  
*looks* like it will brew 12 ounces of coffee if you don't want to do  
shots. I usually want to brew a couple of cups of coffee at a time,  
so if the Mini-S does it well, it might be the coffee maker for me.  
Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
jon

It's your basic "steam toy" espresso machine. Capable of making a decent
strong moka pot like cup IF you finesse it. Specifically only capture about
the first half of the brew before it really starts pushing over heated steam
through. You go by the flow color, it will change from hazelnut to blond,
the blonding being very bitter over temp extracted.

first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment
found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.
