    these guys are breaking new ground,

    i think they are maybe even making a 45 deg angle tamper to prove it works.

    dont discount it till you have tried it ;)

    The issue is that many people did not realise and thus it is one of the causes behind so many crappy new coffee places...

    Surely not! I know there are some diabolical cafes out there, but I dont think you can blame these guys. I havent seen the "finger-luma" technique being used or cafes keeping a number of portafilters in the freezer (for the "freeza-porto" technique - from the ancient Greek, to freeze the portafilter *;D).

    But then again I havent really been looking, although the 45sec "fast pour" did seem familiar... hmmm, maybe youre right, AM.

    (I know its been up here before, but I didnt realise 4 times - well done, Java "Doesnt miss a trick!" phile. Still, always been worth a chuckle for me.)
