Subject: Presso Experience, Anyone?
I'm interested in this 'Presso' machine <www.presso.co.uk > for
something to use when the VBM is in for an annual service, and for
trips away, like camping.

This reviewer recommends an alteration to it before it can make
reasonable coffee:

Has anyone here tried the 'Presso'?

No, the videos were made with the stock presso. (except for the
bottomless PF)

I've been using the Presso (on and off) for a while, I found the
greatest challenge was getting an even extraction out of the peculiar
basket (it has an 'innie' ridge).

If you get one just be careful not to use to much pressure, the piston
and arms (unless the ones currently being sold were re-designed, I
don't know) are not up to the stress. If you get to the point where
you are putting the weight of your body on the arms and it is not
moving just stop...doing that too many times will break something.

That being said, shots with a higher flow work well. I've got some
videos up on youtube with a bottomless pf like this one-

Jim mentioned here-

That the Millenium Pavoni baskets fit the Presso PF (probably where it
was copied from). I'd like to try that!

Thanks a lot.

Home Barista, of course!
If I don't go there fow a while it drops my registration.

Presso sounds like a case of too good-looking to be useful.

There's a pride (pod?) of presso users on home-barista. Here's some of
the posts:

You'll need to enter "presso" as the search phrase, and you'll get
around 10 threads worth of reading.
