Washington area coffee fans... [Jan. 17th, 2015|11:14 am]
I'm about to post my old Rancilio Miss Silvia espresso maker on something like craigslist. Is there anyone out there who likes espresso, would love to have a good espresso machine but wouldn't spend the OMG-too-much for one as good as the Silvia?

I have a new one - a double boiler model that can make a latte quickly. The Silvia *can*, technically, make a latte - but it takes about a minute to get up steam pressure. So you can either steam your milk, and hope you cool the boiler enough to make good espresso, *or* you can let your espresso sit about 2 minutes while you steam your milk. So I splurged on the new one.

Because I'm going to sell it on Craigslist for about half retail (maybe a bit more, just to see if I can get it), but I'd just as happily give it to a friend (or decent acquaintance - offer void if you're an acquaintance because you used to steal my lunch money to buy heavy arms to steal the lunch money of small third world nations - or if you're using the espresso machine as part of your plan for ruthless dictatorship. Ruth was a good player, and deserves to be remembered!)

ruthless dictatorship

I would love to read the plans for ruthless world-domination
by use of an espresso machine.

Re: ruthless dictatorship

Actually, so would I. The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is that you sure wouldn't want a ruthless dictator who was also under-caffeinated. But a regular Mr. Coffee would handle that.
