No, really? I just froze my PF, ground super coarse, poked holes in my grind and let 5 oz of extraction pour into a 2oz shot glass, I then nodded to nobody and took a sip. Now I am cleaning up spit out slop from the face of my machine. Must work better with the old Breville machines then on my shiny over priced machine. Sorry couldn't resist, please don't take offense.

Manti... ... when I was 14 I "met" a girl with the silkiest voice over the CB radio. We got along amazingly! Even better, she lived in the town my family residence was just outside of. Our first date turned out to be everything sad you would expect a young man on teen age hormones would guide you to believe it could be... I am not proud of that day, and I only wish 'Sweet Delight' well... but I can surely comprehend the demonstrations of just how (and I do not say this in a bad way) immature our youth of today are when measured against a hard and forgive-less world.
Oh! and I don't understand what you folks are talkin about - I make coffee on my 'presso machine like that every day! Tastes gud to me! (now you know how far I have sinned!)
