    Bargain! Not at all my size but got to be a pretty rare version. You sure you want to sell that!

    d more or less time heating it up, but that's it. What should make more of a

    The idea is that it stops the coffee getting burnt while you are waiting for the water to warm up. James Hoffman explains his process on YouTube.

    If you're switching from cold to hot water you will need to have the heat turned down since it doesn't take much to get the water coming through and hence not have it come through too fast.

    Might be worth giving it a go with just the Aeropress.....then you've got the starting point. Increasing the pressure should increase the intensity/concentration as I understand it

    I'll put the first order in if you're able to make a couple of prototypes :-)

    So basically something to hold the Aeropress in place and then the lever attached to the plunger? I reckon the rubber seal would hold. Would also need to make sure that the pressure doesn't break the cup (apparently it's possible with hand plunging).

    Sounds like a good challenge! I guess if you can get the lever working would end up pretty similar to the recent manual espresso machines....

    Have been experimenting with the Aeropress Espresso....was sceptical at first but actually pretty impressed....

    25g coffee grind on mocca setting in a Wilfa
    60g water
    stir then plunge straight away

    Its not a true espresso but short black quick strong drink which brings out the flavours. Anyone else on this? Was thinking of getting a proper espresso machine but not sure I will be dedicated enough with all the maintenance etc...

    Which grinder are you using? Just thinking that in order to get the right quality of grind you're going to need a pretty decent grinder?

    Do you know if it is classified as an HMO? Not claiming to be an expert but there are tighter regulations if it is an HMO so if you can show that the LL is in breach of those requirements you might have stronger grounds to claim the contract is not being delivered, or complain directly to the council on safety grounds.
