Craigslist wrote:This is an Original Starbucks machine so it has been seasoned over 3 decades which gives a flavor that a New machine simply cannot match. Just like an Iron skillet. No matter what you do you cannot match the flavor of a properly seasoned skillet or Espresso machine and that is why we bought it.

October apparently means prank season at our house. My nine year old just crushed me this morning. Beans everywhere. Good one, Ruby.

Reading through reviews on some espresso cups on amazon. Most of the reviews are very positive but there are some with 1 star rating.
Most the complains are "... these cups are very small, probably they are for small children, the seller should have disclosed that...'
One went as far as complaining that he could not put his finger through the hole in the cup handle... :shock:

Cafelier to Offer a Powered Solution for Group Head Cleaning. Designed for commercial 58mm groups. Slovenia based company.

Cafelier contains a small motor powered by a rechargeable battery. Good for 50 cleaning cycles per charge, and can be charged to full power in 15 minutes.

Further details below.

Overkill for a home user. Commercial usage can justify almost anything in a high volume shop if it saves on maintenance and helps with espresso consistency.
Between order and chaos there is espresso.
Semper discens.

a coffee advent calendar, containing pre ground sachets of SO coffees....shipped early Nov, arriving/tasted in December

Risks and challenges
The main issue we have highlighted is keeping the coffee fresh, whilst delivering on our ship by date. We have taken every precaution to maintain the freshness of the coffee with our valved bags and we will be packaging the fresh coffee two weeks prior to the end of the campaign. We have an experienced team in logistics and know we have to ship the calendars in early November to guarantee they arrive at worldwide destinations in time for December.

Their claims of "freshly ground" coffee in their individual packets reminded me of this gem:

Guest: I'm afraid it's not fresh

Fawlty: We've just opened the bottle—

Guest: Fresh means it comes out of an orange, not a bottle.

Fawlty: Oh, you'd like freshly squeezed orange juice?

Guest: As opposed to freshly unscrewed orange juice, yes!
