I think most here are having fun, but still have a notion of quality that makes it slightly more important than "normal". The problem with black & white print is the lack of body language, tone of voice, irony, etc.
So, what you write here easily reads as, it's just a drink, and a response could be, what do you do here if you think like that? Have a job in the *$$ lab and searching for intelligence?
If subject substance were wine, we could say, in vino veritas, but then the question would be how to get it out.

According to my dictionary, a funny question now could be, if you intend to take the coffee intravenously?
However, if someone translates "drip" literally into my native language, that person might think you were talking STD.

A fundamental and more serious question is though if a (home) barista should be able to do other coffee preparations than espresso.
If the honorable forum would think so, it might be an idea to set up dedicated fora for these preparations.

USD 1595 and they say: "The original discs can be used 2-3 times after re-sharpening."
I hope for you it is better than that! :twisted:
And then they say: "Infinitely-adjustable fineness setting, from Turkish, Espresso, and Filter to Coarse"
Which makes you wonder about the "Espresso" setting.
An interesting feature they mention is: "The KR804 Series has [...] a vibrator plate"
Put the filter paper in the clamp on the tube and you will have very evenly distributed grinds in it.
Would it be an idea to do double (or triple) blind testing to determine the taste effect of this contraption?
Would the clamp hold your cafetière as well?

Interesting design for hotel and institution kitchens where invisible to customers.

Upscale meaning "plain, big."
"European design" - probably designed by an aesthetically uncivilized civil engineer in the 1950's. Correction, make that mechanical engineer.


When this was with some, maybe sarcastic, fun, now without.
We have a few Turkish members in the forum (e.g. kahvedelisi) and I would wonder about the favorite traditional grinder they would use in Istanbul or non-Western for that matter. If you want to do a good Tubruk/Indonesian style (very coarse), cafetière (pretty coarse), or Turkish style (extremely fine) then you do not want fines or dust that the espresso burrs would produce. Which one would they use?
Probably the answer is Dittig or Mahlkoenig (the " on the o in German is an indication for an omitted e, so ö is equivalent to oe), yet I don't know - there might be a specific Turkish brand even. I once wandered Istanbul and e.g. went through the plumbers' street, but did not bump into the coffee machine street back then.
