This is one of the most efficient ways to make espresso/coffee I have ever seen. It is insane how good it is. I have had far worse espresso out of a machine. This basically renders them obsolete for only $30. I apologize for sounding like a salesman, but if you can't tell I have become fairly obsessed :) I am not the only one however as there is an annual world aeropress competition:
Anyway, thanks again to Andrea for an amazing gift!
