It's another Coffee World John. Working with espresso machines offers
experiences not possible with any other brew method. Now I have heard some
say that the coffee produced with the fairly recent MyPressi is not bad. I
first tasted shots pulled by the inventor as he demoed at the 2010 SCAA
after hours Event party held at the Los Angeles Intellegencia party. Not an
arm and a leg for this little hand held unit. Fun on camping trips. Don't
get me wrong though, comparing this to a nice duel boiler espresso machine
is not possible. No question if I could have a home duel boiler La Marzocco
I would. The "Dark" side can temp us once our taste buds have been tickled
with nectar from Zeus's coffee forge.
If you don't have a taste for espresso than by all means stay with brewed
coffee. Many brew systems out there to keep any coffee geek busy. I love
both methods.

children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in
the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or
