  1. We are moving house and so I have discovered bits of coffee-making equipment which I have not used in a while. I have MyPressi Twist - coffeegeek review here: http://coffeegeek.com/reviews/0/mypressitwist/latest I'm not sure these can be bought anymore as I can't find them on the web. In any case they use N20 cartridges and hot water to make espresso. They are portable so if you are off to a hotel for the weekend or travel for work and espresso is your preferred beverage then this might be good for you. I generally drink milk-based espresso drinks and use my Izzo vivi at home for these. When I travel I tend to make pourover so hence the decision to sell. I will upload pics in a bit but it is drying as i just tested it. Works well. I used my grinder (mahlkonig vario) with about 13.5g in the basket, threw in some off the boil water and pressed the trigger. The result wasn't half bad, even though i didn't do it properly (i.e. heat the basket & chamber, adjust the dosage & grind, etc.). if using it when travelling I think it would give an acceptable result with something like a porlex handgrinder. I'm not really sure on the price for this. new on ebay there is one for £126. Then the last used ones sold for less than £150 on best offer (included some cups), £60, and £56. Mine includes 80 of the N2O cartridges (8 boxes of 10), which you normally have to buy separately. So I'll say: Price: £80 for the lot (plus some random milk frother things that came with it) I'm sure you'll all let me know if you don't think this is right. (I will have another gadget call a 'presso' later, but am just cleaning it up and assembling it)
  2. I have a well loved and looked after Mypressi Twist with a proper 53mm tamper for sale. The Mypressi Twist is great for making espresso on the go, requiring only a hot water source and ground coffee. I have used this on a boat, in hotel rooms, when camping and even at dinner parties - serving excellent espresso each and every time. Included will be 4 x N20 cream whipper bulbs - enough for approx. 16 espressos Extras are easy to source and very cheap also The tamper is a 53mm tamper with a metal base. I am asking for £65 plus postage (which could be as much as £10 depending on location) I am in no rush to sell so will not be bargaining on price. I can meet in central London after 1800 any night next week also
  3. Mypress twist v2 for sale, bought about 8 weeks ago new. Not using it as much as I should so up for sale. In excellent condition, like new, complete with box and all accessories. Also have about 35 canisters that I will include. Will post more images tonight when home. SOLD
  4. Newbie! I own a mypressi twist, enjoying it, thinking it's time to upgrade from hario slim hand grinder into an electronic one.. the journey begins.. hopefully with the help of this website I can make smart choices and see good value upgrades for money.
  5. Does anyone use one of these? I happened to see it on a youtube "recommended" video (youtube know my habits -_-) and I am a bit amazed by how good some of the shots look that come out of it. For example: Obviously great for your travels (as long as you dont fly with the pressurised N2O pods) but the shots look easily as good as what I'm getting out of my cheapo cubika. Just wondering if anyone here has tried one and has an opinion on how it compares.
  6. I'm considering one of these for when at work. There is nowhere to put a full size home espresso machine at work, so that is out the question, and the Mypressi looks very tempting. I'm currently visiting Starbucks 3 times per day on average to buy a double espresso each time (£1.45 a time if I pay with my Starbucks card), so that's £4.35 per day or £21.75 per week or £87 per month (roughly). I've been trying to make espresso in the morning and take it to work in a thermos flask, but that gets quite annoying after a while and I end up back at Starbucks. By my reckoning, even with buying sufficient gas pods to give me 3 or 4 espressos per day, this machine would pay for itself in around 6 weeks. That being the case, I'm very interested to hear from anyone with experience using the Mypressi. What are the pros and cons? Glenn, I know you have one and I've read your review on 5M's website, but it was written shortly after you had bought it. I'd be interested to hear of your experiences with it since then. Cheers Andy
  7. I've read a bit about the recent post on brew methods, but I'm after some help to deal with my unfortunate situation. I work in an office with a lot of moving desks and very little storage space. Not only that a strict policy on outside electrical items. As a result my work choice is currently limited exclusively to instant coffee (it gets you through the day.... but thats about all!). I would be interested to know what you all would recommend that fulfills the below requirements. My most immediate thought is French press, but what would you guys and girls recommend? Requirements: - Portable, I have to be able to carry all items in my bag to work daily - Non electrical - Quick and easy to make.
  8. I've just had an opportunity to play host and give a demo to a friend of my wife, who enjoys her americano's. Spotting the number of machines and coffee related equipment dominating the bench space she asked the fatal question - can you make me a coffee? - which in our house is replied to with "how long have you got?" So we have just spent the past 30 minutes making espressos with the Gaggia Classic's (comparing the steam wands), the mypressi TWIST, and brewing filter coffee with the V60 and the Chemex. I've sent her off home with 100g of Origin's Bolivian Familia Montano which she fell in love with, to use in her french press. More guests like her please!
  9. Does this mean we can all have proper espresso machines at work now? How office coffee breaks make staff work harder - Telegraph
  10. True to form the Bank Holiday produced ghastly weather (well in my neighbourhood anyway) but Saturday stayed dry just long enough to venture into London for a cupping, and a chance to meet a Coffee Forums Member agduncan, whom I hope more of you will get to meet too. We visited Tapped and Packed (my 4th visit in a week, due to it's focus on brewed coffee and proximity to Tottenham Court Road Station...) after the cupping and sampled a Union Hand Roasted Ethiopian Yirgacheffe brewed in a syphon. This had completely different characteristics to the Aeropress I had earlier in the week. It never ceases to amaze me how coffee can taste wildly different when brewed using different methods, and even when brewed by different people using the same methods. Sunday and Monday we did not venture far but gave the Gaggia Classic a thorough work out producing a number of milk drinks for latte art practise and enjoyed the last of the Hasbean Bolivia Machacamarca and have now started on the El Salvador Finca Los Amates. 2 lovely coffees back to back. However, when the bag comes to an end (approx Thursday) I will be back into brewed coffee mode with Chemex, French Press and Dripper (pourover) flowing into my cup. It's not long low until the Bath Coffee Festival (15/16 May). I'll be visiting on the Monday. Please let me know if you are visiting as I'd love to meet up. There is also space for 3 extras in the car (at present) so if you are travelling from London and have not yet arranged transport please let me know. Time now to squeeze in one last shot before I descale and pack one of the coffee machines off for its annual service. Tomorrow morning's espresso will be made with the mypressi TWIST.
  11. Will be heading for Cornwall fairly soon for the first of my regular self catering breaks, so I was wondering about alternatives to the old faithful french press that I take for coffee fixes. I would welcome any opinions and experiences using one from fellow forum members, Glenn at least has a working knowledge going by his sig. Don
  12. Not sure of this is the best place to post this, so mods my apologies if it is not. I've got a Brand New Mypressi that i've never got round to using for sale, still with the box. £120 new, £60 posted to you. email me [email protected] if your interested. ta
  13. Lovely bright sunny day up here in the North-East, and I'm starting off with an espresso from Hasbean's 2010 Premium Blend. I roasted these on Thursday, going a little bit darker than I normally would, and it seems to have suited the blend well. A subtle sweetness to the aftertaste. What's everyone else drinking?
