I've already replied to Treshell off list. Might be a fun few days for me =
next week if the monks are interested. I don't have the best espresso setu=
p, but could demo Chemex, Hario vacuum, French Press and Moka pot in additi=
on to the occasional espresso from my little Gaggia. I could probably even=
pick up an Aeropress for the occasion. Most people have no idea all the o=
ptions they have for coffee and are not interested in investing hundreds if=
not thousands of dollars. They might learn that you can get quite a nice =
cup of fauxpresso (pronounce that like my grandpa in Kansas and it sounds l=
ike fox-spresso) from a Moka pot or Aeropress - way better than that old Mr=
. Coffee on the counter. At least I do have a decent Rocky and Super Jolly=
for the setup.
