Want to talk espresso but not sure which forum? If so, this is the right one.

As someone who loved playing with Legos as a kid, this is one of the coolest things I've seen all day. Outstanding work! Thank you for sharing.

This is incredibly awesome and would never have occurred to me to attempt! I recently rekindled my love affair with LEGO (after a break of almost 40 years) by building the Apollo Saturn V rocket with 1969 pieces - very satisfying.

Awesome. Much better than mine (I think mine was probably the thread you found). My 7 year old very much likes your design too. Nice.

Yes, but how does the espresso taste?

My wife is a Bricklinkaholic, so I am familiar with the little familiar sounding packages that arrive in the mail when she is building the next Eiffel Tower or Taj Mahal project. But damn, this is whole next level. Awesome job!

Oh yes, I have to have a look at it. But also have to try out a less conservative design for a LEGO cup (after hearing that a square-shaped cup would be lovely).

I totally get it! Saturn V is on my birthday wishlist and I can't wait to build it and play with it. Judging by reviews, it's one of the best sets ever made by LEGO (also considering the price per piece).

So glad you both liked it :) Cannot underestimate the cuteness of micro-scale models though. My next LEGO build is going to be a nano-scale city skyline.

That's the plan! I'm currently working on the instruction set (it gets pretty tricky in a couple of places). I'd like to release it to Rebrickable once ready.

Thank you! I can totally relate to this, a tolerant spouse is a real gem :)
