Kicking back enjoying a great hot cup of tea = Priceless

Great Tea Houses:
The Tea House = Queen Vic Building - Sydney
Tea Cafe (not sure of name) = Main Street - Katoomba

Beats $7,000 coffee machine - Okay flame away.....

All good advice.

Me, I have an ECM Giotto, and big is 100% right - don't skimp on the grinder...
I've just moved up to a 18g basket for a double shot, and have been seriously toying with the idea of doing a bit of home roasting. It's an addiction in more ways than one!



get that man a nescafe
I have a coffee tree/bush in my yard never bothered to harvest it

I just do not know what to say.

I bet you have a ginger snap or an iced vo-vo with your tea don't you T? And listen to a couple of 78's of Benny Goodman on your gramophone while playing bridge with the old dear ladies from bowls?

Re: Home Espresso Machines

We start of talking coffee and end up talking beer....

I dunno, but my La Pavoni Professional certainly hits the spot and the steamer is great. Got a decent grinder too - can't remember the name, but it might be an ECM.

and if you want to really hit the spot, then I highly recommend 'Caffe Corretto'.....
