    Have you ever been offered tea as a substitute and found yourself tempted to throttle the well intentioned, but sadly deluded person?

    I have at least a half dozen coffee making implements at my house. It’s gotta be black and industrial strength.

    I’ve been up since 3 AM so it’s the most important thing in the world right now :alien1:

    There are caffeinated teas out there nowadays, but I have not tried this abomination yet... coffee works just fine

    Outside of ice tea, I’m not much of a tea drinker. But I was always under the impression, that tea had more caffeine than coffee. Perhaps just an internet rumor... :roll:

    Go with the Pasquini K2 coffee grinder....and you'll never need another one... !!
    ( I've had mine for over 20 yrs... )....very good machine !

    I'm also partial to the Rocket R58 Espresso machine...double boiler makes a huge difference in the quality of the machine...( I limit myself to no more than 4 shots of espresso a day...have to control yourself at some point... )....:D

    Rocket R58 Espresso machine to left ...K2 coffee grinder to right ...

    I have never had a problem with this machine. A small amount of coffee grounds do escape when grinding, maybe a couple of grains. Some people complain about static electricity in the receiver after grinding. Just pick up the receiver with your left hand some tap with your right hand three times rotate 1/4 turn tap three times. There, no more coffee clinging to the receiver.

    There are a lotta of whinny snowflakes out there.

    I have used this every other day for almost ten years. clean the burr grinder every year or two.

    Worse than being offered a cup of tea ....being offered a coffee and accepting. Then I catch a whiff of vanilla, or caramel, or hazelnut, or some other desecration of one of the few things in life that can't be improved upon ... black coffee.
