    RistrettoPax, EspressoPax

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Sue drinks plunger at work, though when attending meetings asked if there was something she could take along that would fit in her handbag, be quick and easy, but still have a nice flavour.

    So Ive been tinkering.

    Introducing the RistrettoPax prototype (EspressoPax to follow). *As the name suggests, its a ristretto in a bag ...

    Reminds me of some of the asian countries where you actually get your (instant) coffee in a plastic bag, with a straw....

    It looks like there will be nothing spilt when Sue has her intravenous coffee.

    Looks like the work of an evil genius.......Denis, how is it consumed?* Is it concentrated or just a vac sealed shot?

    Do ya rip the bag open and suck on the contents?
    Reconstitute with hot water?
    Could you jam it into a nespresso machine and blow some minds?

    Hmmm, I can see me snipping off a corner with my pearl handled pocket knife and sucking the thing dry. :o

    I made it by extracting straight into the bag, then heat sealing it.

    I still have the original and its not showing any signs of mould growing in the bag.

    What Id really like to achieve would be to concentrate a shot into tablet form that with water added, would effervesce to reconstitute into a nice espresso that includes crema...like those twist berocca containers. Tablet held in the top section of a container, twist once to preheat the water, then twist again to release the tablet into the hot water.

    Surely that cant be too hard? Maybe I can work on it in my next life?

    Isnt that essentially what those horrid self heating espresso cans do that people (other than me) buy at service stations? I cant imagine that taking it to a powder would keep it any more stable than instant coffee despite the initial change in extraction process.

    I find that an increasing number of people arrive at meetings with their freshly purchased coffee in order to circumvent the hospitality instant.
    I usually take a Robert Timms coffee bag and then I only need their hot water. When I host the meeting there is always dripolator coffee made with quality beans (and a home made biscuit or slice) which seems to make a big difference to the general tone of the meeting.
