    Had one of these for a couple of years before upgrading - capable of producing a great cuppa!

    The pressurised handle means you dont have to tamp the coffee - that said, most people go down the path of modifying the handle to make it unpressurised, or alternately buying an unpressurised handle. In these cases, youll get better results from fresh coffee, freshly ground and correctly tamped.
