It needs a good sanding and oiling, but it looks exactly the same.
Used to do a lot of work with a high end kitchen fitter and this was the cut out for a sink with the edges tidied up.
It was made in 1990 and has survived pretty well considering it has been in the dishwasher a fair few times in its life!
Here is another odd one in a similar vein...Odd post.
French food is pish.
With a Lungo size coffee, I normally put some hot water in the cup to warm it before putting the coffee in so that it doesn't suck the heat out of the coffee. I don't bother when making an expresso as I want to drink it quick.
I totally agree with you, as I also love great coffee, and I also hate faffing around. There are some awesome coffee machines out there, which make great coffee, often better than a coffee shop, and which are super-convenient. If money is not a constraint, then an automatic coffee machine is right for you. They are not only easy to use, but they enable you to make a cup of coffee without much effort. Just add the beans and push the button, and fresh coffee is served. It certainly is a great conversation piece in your kitchen. If you don't have room for a coffee machine in your kitchen, there are also portable coffee machines that you can use in the living room, in the office, or wherever you find yourself needing coffee.
Just making my cup of morning Joe. Trouble is with the percolator that I use, is that the water has to build for it to work!The machine brews at 93C exactly what coffee nuts say it should do.

Starbucks have fully automated machines so the barista won’t have any control of temperature.But of course if said coffee is made at wrong temperature by an unskilled barrista then it doesn't matter how good or bad the coffee is its going be crap

I dont even know if they can adjust grind size…it’s highly critical for espresso as it determines under or over extraction.
I very doubt if Starbucks ever check brew ratios
It is. Yep, I often have a spare 3 minutes to make a coffee in the morning, don’t you?Must be great to have the time.
