All good recommendations. FWIW, I love my EspressoForge. I have pulled hundreds of shots using it mostly while camping & mobile applications but also at home when I want to pull a different bean than what I have my main equipment set for. Super versatile. Simple, heirloom quality with only 2 wear items: 2-same size o-rings available anywhere (replace every 500 shorts or so). Easy to get thick syrupy shots or layered...all up to the person pushing down on the piston.
Apart of a recent dirt camping remote 4x4 of Utah a couple mornings I cranked out 15+ cappas using the 'Forge and a stove top Bellman with my MG-1 Grist for grinding duty. All went fine and folks were pleased
