    It actually doesn't look too bad to be honest, from the perspective of a never to be used window-shelf ornament...

    Still so much better than a POD machine.

    get a stovetop bialetti brikka. better than normal stovetop. a little expensive, but would definitely buy that over that piece of shit kmart thing. it'll hold you over until you can replace it, and will also hold its value a lot better.

    I've already come to my senses & hit up the hardware for sale thread . Bloody power of the media, all of the 'crowds go mad for amazing machine' advertorials got me wondering if this really was a miracle purchase, but I figured if it was the coffeesnobs would know about it. We're limping by on an aeropress but it really isn't espresso, think I'll have to rob Peter to pay Paul to get my decent morning caffeine fix again.
