    My secret santa hit the nail on the head!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I found an international secret santa and decided to join up. Part of the secret santa is, that you have to tell them a bit about yourself and your hobbies so they have an idea what to buy you.

    My secret santa just happened to be from Italy, and I also stated I loved coffee. Put the two together and you get a magical gift that any coffee lover could appreciate!

    The budget is supposed to be capped at $20, but he went well over.

    Here is a bunch of pics I took while I unpacked it. PS, it was totally unexpected to actually get anything coffee related, but as you could imagine I was very happy

    Good one. BTW, that is a stovetop moka pot / espresso maker, not a percolator. Way better coffee than a perc if you look up how to use it to its best on CS. If it is muddy, it is wrong.

    Thanks for the tip TampIt! Yeah the coffee seemed to be a bit muddy looking. Not like out of my Elektra. I'm not seeing any difference between this pot and a perc? It's just a bit smaller? The components are exactly the same as a perc just on a smaller scale

    A percolator recirculates the water through the grounds many times. A Moka pot only puts the water through the grounds once. BIG difference!

    We all have those moments.

    I only mentioned it because a good Moka can make a really good cuppa. A percolator... pallbearers and a minutes science for the brave, sacrificial coffee that met an unloved doom.

    It will not match your Electra, but at least it also looks the part.
