tomcat, what can I say? I love my gaggia and the shots I can pull... it's been my best of friends for what, 15 years? daily? Never had to replace anything but the filterhead gasket a couple times... but I actually like egyptian-style "turkish" more than the best of shots nowadays. Believe me, it suprises me as much as it does you and joe... I still get in a few doubles a day, and I won't give that up ever.
eric, how did I get this way? The short of it is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder can have some beneficial side effects.... the long of it is, well, long. Coffee good. Real good. Coffee Real Good.
Joe... ponder this: which is more stupid:
1) decaf coffees
2) non-alcoholic beers and wines
3) non-fat zero-calorie chocolate chip cookies
it's a trick question - they're ALL f'n stupid! If you can't deal with the respective ingredients, DONT EAT IT. Morons. Stop making a market for it! You people that drink decaf... you don't like the taste of coffee THAT much... you just want to fit in. STOP IT. Make these manufacturers stop producing this nutty crap. Don't you get it? People want your money... if you tell em you want glass security doors for your house, they'll make em and sell em to you. Stupid? Depends on which side of the supply:demand equation you're on. Knock it off, I mean C'MON PEOPLE - scented toilet paper? You shame yourselves.
Side rant, sorry... ehahehehae...
bye now, time for coffee.
