My Husband knows more about coffee than you do. It's true. He actually took me to a "cupping" one day. Those with the funny looks on there faces, I was once you. I will now explain what a cupping is. Coffee grains are steeped in a large mugs with no handles that look like cups. The grains are then gently spooned off of the top of the cup, and when all visible signs of grains are gone, your cup of coffee is complete. It's a far cry from my stainless steel brewer, and a lot more time consuming. But for the conossiour it is worth it. Okay, so for those not as into a cupping, THIS IS SOOOO AMAZING. A hand held esprsso on the go maker. Yes it does exist! If any of you are looking for a gift for me, here it is on a silver platter. Can you imagine being in traffic with this device! :)
