I'm reminded of a joke:

Why does Karl Marx hate Earl Grey?
Because proper tea is theft. :rofl:

Proper coffee, however, is exempt, and Marxists everywhere revel in the cheery bean.

Yuk and double yuck.

I am going to see if i can purchase a coffee machine from ebay, i do not want to fork out on a shop bought one just in case i no like the coffee.
You should be able to find very inexpensive ones in the store, enough so that it's probably not worth paying the cost of shipping on eBay. You don't need all the fancy bells and whistles.

Actually I was pulled up on this by a Marxist quite recently. The joke should go why do anarchists hate Early Grey, because property is theft.

Because it wasn't Karl Marx who said that but a prominent French anarchist of the 19th century.

Trouble is the joke doesn't work if it's technically accurate. :smile:

Holy cow, Woolie! Those are incredibly expensive coffee-makers. The Maxim Expres was probably about $60 when I traded my frequent-flyer miles for it, and it has a very sturdy permanent stainless steel basket for the ground coffee. It's been a solid performer for over 15 years. It is very compact, which is nice for our small kitchen.

I prefer the taste of percolated coffee if it just didn't take so long to brew. It is so much smoother than drip.

You may not prefer the strength of espresso over brewed coffee, but if you do, here's the kind of machine you should be looking for.

By the way, you can reduce the amount of coffee in the basket to vary the strength, if you want. Be sure to relieve the steam pressure (using the frothing wand) before removing the basket. Steam is nasty stuff.
